Let's get grilling

1 Pre-heat recteq grill or wood pellet grill to 375°F with a cast-iron pan.
2 Add the oil and mushrooms to the pan, cooking for 6–8 minutes until the mushrooms are golden brown.
3 Add the remaining vegetables and cook for 4–5 minutes until tender.
4 In a large bowl, add the cooked vegetables, butter, Colden’s Freakin’ Greek Rub, wild rice, and feta cheese.
5 Allow the mixture to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.
6 On a cutting board, trim any excess fat or skin from the Cornish hens, then stuff each hen with 4–5 oz of the vegetable stuffing mixture.
7 Secure the legs with butchers’ twine.
8 Season the hens with olive oil and Colden’s Freakin’ Greek Rub.
9 Cook at 375°F until the internal temperature of the breast reaches 165°F (75 minutes).
