Grilled Quail with Mustard Barbecue Sauce

Serves: 4 to 6
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 

Ingredients

6 semi-boneless quail
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup mustard barbecue sauce, store-bought or homemade

Instructions

Heat a grill to high.

Arrange quail on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Place quail on the grill skin side-down. Brush the exposed side of the meat with the barbecue sauce. Cook just until you can see dark grill marks on the skin, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip quail and brush skin side with the sauce. Close the lid and cook until just medium-rare (the internal temperature of the bird should read between 120 and 125 degrees), about 4 minutes.

Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
