Recipe courtesy Terry Thompson-Anderson. Note that many grocers now carry frozen quail. Out here in Texas, the quail are fairly small - one of the few things that ain't bigger in Texas!

How to Make Stuffed Smoked Quail with Cheese and Jalapeno

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare fire in a barbecue pit with an indirect heat source. Let fire cook down until temperature in chamber is about 250 degrees.
  • 2Place bacon strips between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin, roll bacon until thin, then set aside. Prepare baste by whisking all ingredients in a bowl.
  • 3Stuff the interior cavity of each quail with a portion of the stuffing. Wrap each quail with a slice of the bacon, tucking the bacon under the wings. Secure the bacon slices with toothpicks.
  • 4Place the birds on the grill and brush with baste. Cook, turning and basting often, for about 1-1/2 hours. Remove the toothpicks before serving. Serve the quail hot, with two birds per person.
