Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Charcuterie Style Brined Cherry Smoked Duck Breast

I brined 2 whole duck breasts and a whole yardbird in the poultry brine from Ruhlman/Polcyn's charcuterie book.

Both were out of this world. The cook was at 350 indirect with cherry chunks. The duck was pulled at 140, which was by accident. Meant to pull at 125 but was on the phone. I don't think I would have liked it that rare. The brine already made it super tender and juicy. My wife thought it was raw. It firmed up quite a bit in the fridge though and felt right. Absolutely delicious. I'm going to make my Duck Breast Canapé with it tonight and will post pics.

Here's the duck:
