    good thank you. that really helps. we were going to stew them and it's too hot for that type of food.

    Anyway, like I was sayin', quail is the fruit of the land. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, quail-kabobs, quail creole, quail gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple quail, lemon qual, coconut quail, pepper quail, quail soup, quail stew, grilled quail salad, quail and potatoes, quail burger, quail sandwich.....

    Sorry veggie canner, I should have typed out a recipe for ya.... :)
    I like to grill quail, rather than frying them. Just because I like the flavor of quail. I feel that if you fry them it takes away the taste I'm looking for. Not that frying is bad, it's great, but I'd rather grill them.
    I like to marinate mine in olive oil, fresh chopped garlic, salt/pepper, Cheyenne powder, and worechestershire sauce. Let em soak for an hour then throw them on the grill. Quail can be cooked rare, so don't over do it.

    Hi i just started preparing quail about the time yours hatched...

    The first way i prepared them was sooo good... i found the recipe on youtube.. they use bob white quail... but will work for any breed of quail it called oven fried quail. ... another video i watched on there gave me the idea to stuff them with stuffing.. worked great.. tangy and crunchy outer shell is great.

    The other way i cook them is on the grill with bacon rapped, and bacon stuffed... i cook them wrapped in foil over med heat for 6-8 min ... then remove foil and finish them off.. if u like spicy u can add jalapenios...

    hope this helps... enjoy steve e
