    I have had them fried, grilled, and oven baked but never smoked. I got some today and want to try and smoke them tomorrow, has anybody got any ideas before I go and screw this up.

    I'd wrap them in bacon to keep them moist.[​IMG]

    What Cowgirl said. Consider a brine too. As with all poultry...

    Thanks ya'll, Patty your right I'll wrap them in bacon just for the flavor alone. Richtee I didn't think of a brine. Thanks for ya'lls input.

    RIP, like you, I have had quail all the above ways. Also, I have made a tray out of foil and placed the quail in this foil pan along with beer, onions, lemons, salt, pepper, garlic, etc., and a little ketchup. Just let them cook and every once in a while baste them with the sauce. Dove are pretty good done this way also. Just keep them at a temp that nearly has the juice bubling and cook them until the meat is falling off the bone.
