Quail, Catfish and Wild Rice Smoke

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I wanted to smoke a couple of quail but didn't want to fire up a smoker just for two of them...next thing I new I had a drum full of stuff.

The quail are some bobwhites I got this season, the catfish I caught the end of the summer.

I marinaded the quail for a couple of hours in a mixture of olive oil, sherry, soy and garlic. Then stuffed with wild onions and wrapped in bacon.

I marinaded the catfish in a mixture of water, soy, brown sugar, kosher salt, and hot sauce.

Rolled some brussel sprouts in olive oil, sprinked with kosher salt and cracked black pepper and wrapped in bacon.

Used a long grain/wild rice mix and added olive oil, chicken broth and more wild onions..

Smoked everything with a bit of mesquite.

I covered the rice after 45 minutes...

The whole smoke took a little over one hour.

The brussel sprouts..

The catfish...

The smoked quail on rice...

It was pretty tasty!

Thanks for checking out my supper. :)

Thank you so much folks! It was pretty tasty!

Ole, brussel sprouts taste similar to cabbage (in my opinion) but a bit milder in flavor maybe..
I like just about anything wrapped in bacon. lol

I smoke these just like I do bacon wrapped corn on the cob...when I put them in the smoker I do not move it around. Just let it sit or the bacon will fall off.

Thanks again. :)

Very nice smoke you put together there Jeanie. I especially loved the brussel sprout idea. You did great with the presentation too. 'Unique' is a huge understatement. Thanks for sharing the QVIEW with us,

Jim, they were tasty. I used fresh sprouts..I suppose frozen would work just the same. They were nice and tender with a smokey flavor. The bacon added a lot of flavor. I did season them a bit before wrapping.

I didn't move them around in the smoker..just left them in the same spot the whole smoke so the bacon wouldn't come off. :)
Good luck to you if you try them. :)
