    8 Quail
    2 cups cooked wild rice
    Salt and Pepper
    Thyme (optional)
    8 thin slices fat salt pork



    Rinse and dry quail. Fill cavities with wild rice and close with toothpicks. Sprinkle birds with S & P. Wrap each in a slice of fat pork. Place birds on heavy-duty aluminum foil, large enough to completely enclose 2-4 quail. Enclose a sprig of thyme in each package. Bury in hot coals or ashes in fireplace or outdoor campfire. Let roast for 35 min. and check for tenderness. Cook another 10 min. if necessary. Keep birds piled with hot coals throughout cooking. SERVES: 4
