My buddy @alove12 put me onto grouse schnitzel. I usually make it with a side of dill rice. Hard to mess up but easy to make a mess  :drool:

Here's a real easy recipe to write up.
Smoked quail
Start with gutless and fully plucked quail.
Prepare a brine with brown sugar, salt, and juniper berries (opt)
Brine overnight.
Chuck them in a smoker with little or no seasonings.
If it's a fancy smoker run it 275 until it's done.
If it's a big chief finish it in an oven or pan to get to temp.

Notes: pluck the quail I know it's tedious but the smoke adheres to the skin, this would work with most game birds.

One American Thanksgiving when we lived in the boonies in Canada, my wife filled a crock pot with fresh and frozen boneless grouse breasts and produced the tastiest Thanksgiving meal I ever remember.  Don’t know what else she put in but it was a full big pot of tender grouse in a fabulous savory light brown gravy/sauce.  No precise recipe but easy to approximate and make it turn out delicious.

My favorite way to cook grouse is 3/8 inch thick slices across the grain of the breast cooked for about 30 seconds per side in a skillet of hot butter.  Salt and pepper is enough but garlic and or onion powders, spices etc. are easy options if your taste buds prefer.  Skillet grouse is easy camp cooking.

Have wrapped grouse breasts in foil and cooked in campfire coals for 8 minutes, very good but not as good as the skillet slices IMO.

Duck breasts ligthly oiled with garlic oil, sprinkle Montreal Seasoning both sides then onto the Big Green Egg at 375 for 4-5 min per side. Remove and let rest. I like to serve on a bed of brown rice, and a veggie on the side.

Coat grouse breast in flour, Brown in skillet then put in crock pot with cream of mushroom soup and one package of lipton onion soup mix. Make sure the grouse is well covered with soup. Slow cook for about 4-6 hours then serve over rice.

Soo we were staying on-topic for Upland game birds here :hello:
Not Ducks/goose
Her is a really Simple recipet for Grouse,
In the field clean out the center, PULL out the hole breast as 2.
Rince & Bag them...
Cool them for 2 days in the lower part of the refer.

Reciepe:
Lay all double breats out on a cutting board double breast-upside up! 
(I use No wood type's as this attracts Bacteria).
Add Dried Sage
Celery salt lightly
White pepper
Pakarika

Mix all dried spices in a small bowl by hand..
Use this mixture and sprinkle over ALL sides of each double breat portions, I use NOSalt as it will shrink the meat!
How to cook tastefully,
Get oil say Canola/or Corn oil, Heat up in a Cast Iron pan, make sure U have plenty of extra room/Doo not croud as this will only add TOO much moisture...
We are Sindering these Breasts Quickly.

Hot, hot, & hot  @ 360o as fast as we can gauge them.. Get ready for a plate to pick them off & drain then onto a paper towell on a warmed plate as well... :hello:
Foil then into a cooler Oven @ 180o as you are doing each batch... :yeah:
Getv ready for sides as well..
YummY
Grouse Is soo good done right!! :hello:

Same here.
But after I coat in flour and fry em up ,time to eat.
If it wild Turkey ,I pound out strips with a meat hammer,then flour ,johnys season salt,pepper ,coat em ,fry it up.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Piccata:

Fillet a pheasant breast or 2 or 3 (grouse works as well, or quail, even dove).  Pound thin, season salt & pepper – coat with flour.

Brown in a hot stainless pan with olive oil and butter, 3 to 4 minutes each side.  Set aside.

Deglaze the pan with white wine, reduce by 50%.  Add capers, smash them with a fork, melt in some butter.

Brown some mushrooms in the sauce, add some lemon juice.

Return the breasts to the pan, spoon the mixture over them.

Serve it up.  :EAT:
