Jalapeño stuffed quail wrapped in bacon

Recommended Posts

Another beautiful day in Southern California!!! Time to get my akorn jr heated up. I built my volcano of lump charcoals, I've been using the cotton balls soaked in nail polish as my fire starter. Once it was lit, I put my smoking stone on... 30 minutes till we get to 250 degrees-ish. All the vents were open fully.

The day before; a little bit of olive oil, I seasoned them up with a ginger lemon sriricha spice blend, stuffed a jalapeño up its cavity, then wrapped them in bacon to sit overnight. I bought two packs. I got these quails frozen. It came in a four pack for $6. ($1.50 a quail)

The morning of, flipped each bird to get any remaining flavors to stick onto these quails. I smoked these with avocados and citrus wood for about an hour and a half. We let them rest for about 10 minutes before cutting them in half (full breast cut between them thighs)

i have never ever liked the quails my family made; it's like an Asian style lemon grass...this was beyond my expectations!! maybe next time I'll let my mother season the quails and we shall kamado it up again!!!

Get some cotton balls, soak it with acetone (just enough where it's not dripping), place two of them inside your volcano of lump charcoal. Light it up and put a piece of charcoal that looks like a flat piece on top. Close the lid and wait till your target temp. 

 

Give it a try Brickbat
