B went bird hunting the other day and came home with two Sharp Tailed Grouse. Here's what they look like:
Yup, that's a pretty sharp tail, all right!
Never having cooked a Sharp Tailed Grouse before, I decided to put them on the grill using the same technique as we do for dove.
I marinated the grouse breasts in bottled Italian Dressing overnight, then wrapped them in bacon. I use toothpicks to secure the bacon to the dove breasts, but these were much bigger, so I tied the bacon on with string.
I'll tell you what... those grouse weren't going anywhere after I tied them up! I ground a little black pepper over them and gave them to the grill master.
B kept them on medium heat for about 30 minutes. They weren't quite done, so I wrapped them in foil and put them back on the grill for another 20 minutes or so. They were delicious with all that crispy bacon! All we needed with this meal was a piece of corn!
