Makes 3-4 servings

Instructions: Heat grill to medium high heat and set up indirect grilling method (coals set aside to one side of grill). Season the quail with salt and pepper and set aside.

Mix together marinade of thyme, honey, garlic and olive oil and coat quail with mixture. If opting to wrap quail in bacon slices, apply bacon after coating the birds.

Grill the quail, breast-side down for about 4-5 minutes until nicely browned. Turn the quail, add another coating of marinade to the breast side and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until skin is crisped and browned. For bacon-wrapped birds, the quail is traditionally done when the bacon is fully cooked. Quail should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Take quail off the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes prior to serving.
