Quail on a Stick and Bacon Wrapped Brats

Guess the title says it all!
 I wanted to roast a few quail over the fire while camping last time and had planned on just whittling a stick down to slow roast them.  Then someone wanted brats....with jalapenos and bacon....and you can't have bacon wrapped brats without onions, kraut and spicy mustard.. so the menu grew. :)




Fired up a few logs in the tractor rim...



Skewered the quail and seasoned with Tatonka Dust



wrapped a few of them in bacon...



and onto the fire to slow roast....







I split the store-bought brats, inserted slivers of jalapeno then wrapped them in bacon...




onto the fire with a skillet of onions in butter....






added the kraut to the onions....




                           
















a jalapeno stuffed bacon wrapped brat with caramelized onions, kraut and spicy mustard...











I was a happy girl!! :)




A couple of roasted quail on a stick and a cold beer to wash it down, it was a perfect meal for sitting around the campfire that night.  I hate to say it but it was a heck of a lot better than a marshmallow on a stick. :)

Love the look of the quail on the stick, very primal. Would you say it's closer in taste to chukar or dove?

Thanks Kirby! It's nice to see ya. :)
I would say closer to chukar..they are really mild in flavor. I love dove but love quail a lot more. lol

Hope you had a great weekend!

Oooh the brats with the bacon and jalapeno is a great idea, brats was one of the things on the menu for vacation on the lake and I sure will be using your idea! Thanks and it sure looks good.

that looked to be pretty good eats from what I see. I think I saw a Budweiser beer holder with maybe a bud in it. Now your talking my kind of beer.

Funny how meals can expand so easily - everything looks outstanding, especially in the fadding daylight.

Hi Jeanie,

brats and sauerkraut - very german your last outdoor session. :)
I never tried that im combine with hot jalapenos, but it looks very delicious; the birds, too.

:) Thanks Willie! The beer with the brat might have been a bud. I know there were some in camp. :)

You sure know how to fish! Just hope they leave your lines alone long enough to finish the meal, right? I really like how you did those brats, nice job.
