KUDU Fried Quail

Prep Time15 minsCook Time12 minsTotal Time27 mins

 10 Whole quails, skin on
 2 cups Flour
 Peanut oil
 Egg wash (2 eggs with a dash of milk, whisked)
 Salt & pepper

1

Light your charcoal in the KUDU and let them burn to embers with a layer of white ash.

2

Adjust your grill height over the embers at medium heat. To locate medium heat, place your hand over the embers and find the height you can count to 5 before having to remove your hand from the flame. This is the height for medium heat (approx. 400 degrees).

3

Move your KUDU cast iron to that height and add the peanut oil to the height of 1 inch.

4

Put each quail in the egg wash and coat lightly with flour salt and pepper.

5

When the oil reaches the temperature of 350 degrees add the quail.

6

Cook for 5-7 minutes. Flip the quail and cook for another 5-7 minutes. The quail is done when the meat is slightly firm (it will feel like a cooked chicken breast) and reaches an internal temperature of 180 degrees.

7

Remove from oil and let rest.

8

KUDU tip: don't let the oil get hotter than 350 degrees, use the elevation bars to keep a steady temperature.
