Here are some recipes that work well with Pidgeons or Doves

Creamy Pigeons

Place enough water to cover breasts in a large pot along with the sage. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat; add the breasts and cover. Allow to stand for 8-10 minutes. Remove breasts from water and rub with butter, salt and pepper to taste. Arrange breasts in a shallow baking dish; add the mushrooms, onion and mushroom soup. Cover and bake at 350 until breasts are tender approx. 30 minutes.
Crock pot Pigeon

Breast em out, stab em with a fork a few good times, soak em in dales sauce, a little vinegar,and a bunch of lemon juice. Wrap in bacon with a strip of red bell pepper and onion held by toothpicks. Throw em on the grill, don't overcook or like they said, they'll be tough anddry. Soaking in the marinade helps to keep em from dryin out a little. Jalapenos great too, any kinda pepper is good with em.

I take'em and cut the back boes out with a scizzers, pull the skin and gutts out so they are butterflyed. soak in saltwater, then grill with soysause. They are alot of work, but I think it's worth it.

I usually clean the bird but dont breast them out....cut between the breast plate and the breasts and put jalapenos in there and wrap with bacon (use a toothpick to hold the bacon on)....Put on the grill and as said before dont over cook or they will be dry.......They are awesome like this, I do venison this way too...can't go wrong with bacon and jalapenos...

X2 - but also try a little cheese in there with the Jalapeno. mmmmmmm..... cant wait for Sept.
We do them the same way with bacon and jalapenos. Though they never make it home from the lease. We cook them the same day out over a mesquite fire while having our party opening night.
