Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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 :(
