Give your bird some serious color with this good ole' cast-iron cooking technique. Citrus, butter and fresh herbs are all you need to give this feathered flyer ridiculous flavor.

Ingredients

4 each (1 lb) GAME BIRDS OR EQUIVALENT

4 tbsp UNSALTED BUTTER, SOFTENED, DIVIDED

KOSHER SALT

FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER

WHOLE LEMONS, SLICED IN HALF

1 BUNCH PARSLEY

1 BUNCH THYME

1 BUNCH ROSEMARY

Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. Place a large cast iron skillet in the grill while preheating.

While the grill comes to temperature, rub the game birds all over with 2 tablespoons of butter and season the inside and outside with salt and pepper.

Add half a lemon, a sprig of parsley, thyme, and rosemary inside the cavity of each bird.

Truss the birds by simply tying the legs together with string. Add remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to cast iron. Set birds in the hot cast iron skillet and roast for 45 to 60 minutes  until nicely browned, the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.

Let cool 10 minutes. Enjoy!
