Farmers markets and gourmet grocery stores will carry farm-raised quail.

EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Salt & Pepper
Poultry spice mix 




Lightly coat the birds with olive oil. Sprinkle salt, pepper and poultry spice mix to taste. (Any poultry spice mix will do). Stir the birds around with a wooden spoon in a bowl and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Grill over charcoal or gas grill. Start with breast side UP and cook over medium fire for about 5 minutes. Keep the lid closed on the grill as much as possible. Turn and cook breast side down for 6 minutes. Flip the birds one more time to breast side UP and move to cooler part of grill. Let sit for 2 minutes. You're done!
