Just wondering if I should be cautious of anything? Do I just handle it like chicken when cooking?

Well, the only thing I would caution against is not grilling enough.  I normally eat 2 quail myself, but there are occasions that I will want another for a late night snack.  Quail will have a gamier taste, but otherwise, it's just like chicken.

Let us know what you think.

Quail, like other fowl can be eaten a little pink, unlike chicken. Its a real delicacy in many parts of Africa and tastes great on the BBQ.

The biggest danger is not having enough.  If you've got a smoker, they're great done on that and leave them a little pink in the middle.
