I have been going through my freezer trying to eat as much game as possible before hunting season gets going again. I have several zip-lock bags of quail that didn't get vacuum sealed and have some freezer burn on them. I thought I might defrost them and cut off the freezer burn and make jerky out of the rest. Has anyone make jerky out of quail? Any of you have a good recipe?

Personally I would make a stew.

If you freeze them in water they wont freezerburn either.

[quote=bill oxner]I tried to pan fry quail for several years. The breast never came out right because they have three sices, and the bones prohibited the flour from properly coating. A friend and I had an 840 quail year, so I had more than I knew what to do with them. I taught myself to butterfly the quail. I've show this to lots of people since, and it's the only way they cook their quail anymore.

The first and most important step is to cut off the ball and socket joints like this;




Next you run your sissors under the rib cage on each side.



Then you clip off the sternum.




Pull the bones over the front of the quail breast, and it's a done deal.




You have a butterflied quail breast which will pan fry in less than 3 minutes on each side. Use your pan drippings for cream gravy. You don't have to use an egg wash if you bread them 30 minutes or so before you fry them. The breading will get gummy, and they'll come out crisp.

I've deep fried them for a field trial crowd, but I serve those with french fries and store bought breaded okra.

That is how I normally cook my quail, but since some is freezer burnt. I was thinking it may be best as jerky.
