SWMBO Said One Wasn't Enough

This is one of her favorites and she wanted plenty of leftovers, so two ducks it was.

Left uncovered in refrigerator for two days and that seemed to really help dry out the skins. Cooked indirect at 350 grate and then kicked up to 425 for about the last 20 minutes for crispening effect. Pulled at 170 IT and let rest about 15 minutes.

I've even learned how make the Crepes myself.

    Nice job.  Duck meat rules.   I hope you reserved the fat drippings for later.

    Very nice work

    Nice! How did you manage the dropping fat? Pan with an air gap?

    @caliking - yes, plate setter legs up, foil spacers, and large foil drip pan. It caught a surprising quantity; sadly I didn't save as @thetrim suggested.

    Nicely done! Duck is one of the few things I have left to try on my Egg. I think your post may be getting me off the dime.

    Really nice. Next time, do save the fat. It's better than bacon fat for cooking.

    Pomme frites made in duck fat are the bomb-diggity. I used to have an animal fats collection in my refrigerator, but had to leave it behind when we moved. Sad day it was :(
