Ingredients

8 Birds of your choice
1-pound fresh bacon
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper


Marinate birds in Italian salad dressing overnight. Pat dry, season with paprika, ground sage, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Wrap each bird with bacon slices. If you use more than one slice of bacon to cover the bird match the seams on the same side. Place the birds on a medium-hot grill, bacon seam side down. Cover and grill for 15 minutes. Turn and grill another 15 minutes. Test the bird with a fork, if it is not tender cook an additional 15 minutes.


Baked beans, stuffing, fresh vegetables, and bread of your choice would be an excellent complement for this entree. After your birds are done throw the bacon into your pot of baked beans for excellent seasoning. This recipe also works very well with Cornish game hens.

Notes

When you BBQ smaller wild bird like dove, quail, chuckar, grouse etc., it tends to be a little on the dry side. This recipe will definitely fix that.
