Notes about this recipe

    This is fabulous! My husband pronounced it the new recipe find of the summer. I used one game hen for the two of us and left the two halves in the marinade for the full 24 hours. I was also a little heavy- handed with the garlic and ginger when making the marinade adding half again a as much as called for. We cooked them on a charcoal grill using indirect heat and turned and basted them every 8 minutes for a total cooking time of 40 minutes. They turned a lovely mahogany color and were quite moist and delicious. I served them with the Grilled Eggplant With Sweet Miso Glaze from Cooks Illustrated Guide to Grilling and Barbecuing and fresh steamed green beens. We poured a crisp white wine blend from Abiqua Wind Vineyards.
