The most important thing to remember when cooking hen's over the campfire is that the flames are not best for cooking, the glowing hot coals are. so light your campfire and allow a good bed of coals to build. Find a 5'-6' long branch (or sapling), about 1"-2" in diameter, that is forked on the end. Remove all branches except for about 10" of each side of the fork. You should now have a tall "Y". Remove the gibblets and
thoroughly rinse your bird. Thread your hen, legs first down the length of the stick and tie each leg (extended) to a portion of the "Y". Salt and pepper your hen inside and out.
Now, once you have a good bed of coals squeeze butter and honey onto and into your hen. Prop your bird firmly into place 2'-3' above the coals. You need to cook the bird slowly so rotate frequently, and squeeze with butter and honey often.
When done eat with fingers or fork straight from the stick. I sometimes use honey as a dipping sauce.
This is no quickie meal but it is absolutely delicious!
