  • Thanks Bushy. These were from Costco and I must say came out so tasty! The spit approach kept all the moisture in the bird and I find it very satisfying to pick through them for every last morsel.

    As usual I couldn't be bothered getting the plating/look right as by then I just want to eat.

  • How much were they at Costco? I'm pretty sure I've never seen them in my local Costco.

  • How much were they at Costco?

    Can't remember exactly, but ballpark was $29 with a $6 discount which brought them down to the early twenties (so only a few bucks per quail).

    That's the second time I've bought them from Costco in the last few months. Definitely a new addition though, first time I saw them was earlier this year. In the fridge next to the chicken packs.

  • I see you skewered them sideways instead of up the cavity. Was that jus

    Yes, I saw it on YouTube and thought it was a good idea. It allows to tuck the legs into the body and rest against the spit bar. Avoiding them getting dry.

    Also this way I was able to fit all 10 onto a single spit.
