Grilled Quail Recipe

Servings: 2
Prep time: 20 min
Cook Time: 35 Minutes

4 quail
4 slices bacon
6 Tablespoons butter
Salt & Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Orange peel

Prepare and light your grill for a medium heat fire that needs to burn about 30 minutes or more. I like to use a lot of smoking chips. Soak them in a bowl of water and add them to the fire a couple of minutes before starting to cook. If quail are frozen thaw overnight in refrigerator. Fresh or frozen, Split the birds in half down the back, and rinse them thoroughly under cold running water. Lay them out flat on a plate or plates.

Place your butter in a small sauce pan and melt the butter over medium heat. Add the orange peel and reduce heat to medium-low. After 1 or 2 minutes remove from heat and liberally brush on birds.
Place the birds on the perimeter of the grill so they will cook more slowly. Dribble honey (I like to use a "honey bear") on the birds and top each piece with a half a strip of bacon. Rotate AND turn the birds frequently, brushing with butter at least with each turn. Dribble with honey as frequently as you would like. The cooking time will vary depending on grill temperature and proximity to heat, but will probably be around 30 minutes.
