I grew up eating duck and goose my whole life and this is the first smoke I've done with duck. I haven't been out duck hunting since moving to CO so this is a little embarrassing but I bought a duck at the store.
The duck is in a brine in the fridge and tomorrow it'll get some smoke.
The brine includes:
red pepper flakes
Tomorrow I'll remove it from the brine and pat it dry and sit it in the fridge for a few hours to dry to skin a bit.
I'll rub the skin with an herb butter mix on top and underneath the skin. I plan on stuffing the cavity with onion, lemon, fresh herbs, and a handful of turkey gizzards I have on stock. I love me some gizzards!
I'll update this post with details as it progresses.
TIME FOR A SWIM!
