Poussin & Grouse

These were done a raised grid, indirect, low heat. The grouse were bacon wrapped. The Poussin had fresh herbs tucked under the skin.
Both were just o.k.


  • Hi Susan. You have been doing some nice, unusual cooks. I like that.

    Why were these just OK?
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!
    3 Large, 2 Smalls, 1 well-used Mini
  • I guess my expectations were to high :laugh: The grouse was a little dry even though they were wrapped in bacon and done on low heat :sick:
  • Susan,

    I always brine wild birds. The can be dry

    Looks good from Florida. Have never cooked or seen a grouse but find quail are great this way.
  • Thanks! This is how the hunter said he did them. I will brine next time ;)
  • Richard, that does look yummy :)

    What kind of Grouse do you have there? We got both Ruff Grouse and Sharp Tail. We treated the Ice Fest folks to some Ruff Grouse that looks similar. Pretty darn close to chicken if you asked me!
  • oh boy!..... grouse.... one of my favorites.... i used to shoot 2 per day years ago when they were prolific in my area....the habitat changes.... and so does the grouse population..... unfortunately.... that was one of my favorite after work hobbies... there have never been very many pheasants around here except for the tame"chickens".... that the game commission stocked a week before small game season.... to make everyone think that the price of a hunting lic. was worth
  • I am not sure what kind they are. I traded a friend some scallops for them. He hunts in SW Va & does not get many. Most come from his hunts in S.C.
