    Bama Fire:[p]You may want to pre cook the bacon a bit on a cook top or even better in a large fry pan placed in the oven to render some of the fat. Then wrap the birds with bacon and grill in the 325º to 350º range. The birds will cook faster than you think and the bacon may not be finished cooking. If stuffed, even cooked at lower temperatures, the stuffing may leave the birds before they are finished cooking. To cook properly, the birds need to be turned a time or two.[p]You may want to consider stuffing the birds once they are removed from the grill and prior to letting them being covered and rest before serving.[p]Just my thoughts, I find seasoned birds grilled hot and fast until the juices in the leg joint at the body runs clear then a short covered rest works best. Regardless of what you do, make them dance!
