Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Reverse Seared Duck Breast

I saw a post the other day where someone cooked a duck breast in a CI skillet on their grill. A little light went off and I thought, it might be good to try a reverse sear on a duck breast. The thought was that the slow cook could give some good flavor and get rid of some of the fat and then a quick sear in a CI skillet.

I started the breast cooking direct, on a raised grate, on my Small BGE, with cherry for smoke. It took 30 minutes to go from refrigerator temp to 120. Next time I would pull it at 110.

Then I dropped it into a skillet, skin side down for three minutes and one minute on the other side.


It was a little more done than I was shooting for, but the flavor was great. I think that this has promise.


Next time I will pull from the first part of the cook at 115-120 and I will cook it with the lid open, so that I minimize the roasting and get equal crisping, with less overall cooking.
