2 Ducks.... I'm unimpressed.
« on: September 23, 2012, 02:46:59 PM »
I smoked two ducks today.  I soaked them for 36 hours in a brine and then smoked them for 2.5 hours before getting their IT to 165 in the oven to crisp up the skin.  They tasted OK, but I didn't feel like I got very much meat from the birds.  Definitely not worth $20 per bird, which is what I paid at the Farmers' Market. 
Thought sausage smokin' in the shed. Tickle in the kitchen just losin' that head.

I roast a duck about once every ten years just so I remember why I don't do it more often.  On the other hand, I can buy excellent, already roasted duck at any number of Chinese market stalls and restaurants.
