    Yes, fried potatoes in duck fat is fantastic.

    For ducks I pull it with 1/2 hour cooking time left, and paint the bird with a 50/50 mixture of honey and orange marmalade (easier to work with if you warm it up first), then return it to the grill with the temp bumped up.
    I haven't done a duck on my BGE yet, but she's sitting in the freezer, patiently waiting...
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    I can't help you Hoss. I have no experience with premium quality duck. Ours is mostly hand picked and riddled with steel shot :cheer:
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,587
    :laugh: That is the kind I'm used to also. :)

    So here's what you do, take it outside and shoot at it from 30 yards. Miss it and then expect it to come around again, then you get it after putting on one heck of a calling demonstration!

    Cut the breast out, soak it in salt water (or milk) for at least 6 hrs. Season it, wrap it in bacon and cook it to Med rare.

    Gonna toss it in a 500 degree oven for 10 mins or so to help crisp up the skin a little more before serving.Any suggestions as to what sides to serve??? :huh:

    Curious to hear wat you say about the taste......
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,587
    It was milder than I expected.I'm used to wild duck.It has a strong liver related taste.This was very mild and made delicious duck que.
  • transversaltransversal Posts: 719
    Hoss, what brand duck was he? How large? Was he frozen when you bought him?
  • Wild duck is all I've ever had, That is why I was asking. Which do you prefer?
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,587
    I like the milder taste of this one better.
