Great Dove Recipe with Bash Brothers BBQ Sauce

Bash Brothers BBQ Sauce for Wild Game Recipes

For those of you that keep up with the Shotem and Caughtem blog there is no secrets when it comes to our love for the filet mignon of the skies.  As such when our friends at Bash Brothers gave us a bottle of their Hawaiian BBQ Sauce to try with our dove we jumped at the chance to add a little sweet to our favorite way to make dove.  Lucky for us we were not disappointed with the flavor and caramelization it added to our recipe.  We were a little hesitant to try out the sauce when we found the consistency of the sauce to be a little less traditional.  It was more in lines with a marinade in its poor than the thick style of bbq sauce we tend to use.  We worried that it might not perform to our expectations.  However, as a marinade for our dove it was actually better.  The light nature of the sauce allowed it to actually seep in and marinate parts of our recipe we have not been able to penetrate without adding it to different parts of our recipe.  To get your bottle of Bash Brothers we hope you visit www.bashbrothersbbq.com  and pick your own favorite flavor should the sweetness not be your thing.  Mixed with our recipe below it added a nice sweet after taste to the spice of our jalapeno interior.

Dove Breast Recipe:

As seen in the photo above the ingredients are pretty simple and can be modified from the basics.

  • About 30 dove breasts
  • 12 medium sized jalapenos
  • package of bacon
  • Bash Brothers Hawaiian BBQ Sauce
  • toothpicks
  • tub of cream cheese 

The only modification to these basics is in the cream cheese.  We have made the cream cheese a lot of different ways.  Sometimes we will mix different cream cheeses together, use plain and spice it up with about anything you like, or even add other types of peppers to the cream cheese. Otherwise the time comes in the assembly.

Preparation of your Game before Grilling

 

  1.  Take your piece of bacon and slice it into two even pieces
  2.  Take sliced in half jalapeno (seeds out for milder temp) and use it as a boat and fill it with cream cheese
  3.  Take Dove breast and wrap your cream cheese jalapeno and place it on the bacon
  4.  Wrap the Dove Breast with your bacon and poke a toothpick through it to hold it together
  5.  Once assembled place on a sheet and add the Bash Brothers BBQ Sauce


With this recipe we definitely would choose the grill as your cooking method.  The heat helps aid in the caramelization of the sauce.

We hope you share your photos of your own recipes to our new Recipe section to the site and share your favorite ways to cook your wild game.
