BarB-Qued Dove or Quail

Frankly, I sick of this cold weather … and have started dreaming of warm sunshine and barbeque ….

12 doves (OR quail)


6 canned jalapenos

6 slices bacon

Italian salad dressing

Salt and pepper

Marinate doves in milk overnight.* Remove and dry. Place 1/2 jalapeno inside cavity of each dove.

Wrap 1/2 slice bacon around each dove; secure with toothpick.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Barbecue over slow fire with generous applications of Italian salad dressing about 30 minutes.


Remember: Use ceramic, glass or enamel ware when marinating game.


* This is critical.  It reduces the gamey taste and breaks down the muscle fibers, thus increasing tenderness.
