Wild duck recipes

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey all, looking for some help with wild duck recipes.  I recently picked up duck hunting (about 6 years ago) and immediately got hooked!  Problem is, and I hate to say it but I have to be honest... I don't care much for wild duck.  With that said I am a very firm believer in if you kill it you eat it.  I have found one recipe in the last few years that my daughter and I both like a lot but my wife doesn't care for.  Looking to expand different recipes so its not always the same thing every time we make duck.  Right now I primarily marinade and grill it, would love any advice anyone would have for smoking wild duck OR even dutch oven recipes as I am looking to get into dutch oven cooking this spring.  Thanks all, your advice is greatly appreciated!!

Hey Fisher,

 

I'll be keeping any eye on this thread, I too need a wild duck recipe.  I think a low and slow smoke might tame the wild, but I'm not sure.  I hope others out there can help.

Curing duck and smoking it pastrami style is incredible. Heck, even brining and cooking it medium rare is incredible. The brine and/or cure takes most of the "gameyness" out of the meat. Marinating helps, but doesn't get deep enough into the meat like a brine. I'd start with a brine and grill first, then venture into pastrami style with a cure if you're up for it.

Thanks for the reply.  I'll try a brine this weekend.

Got a few mallards last week.  Been wanting to smoke them.  I'll try tomorrow and let you fellers know how they turn out.

Ive had duck many different ways, but the only way I could eat it was when one of my buddies made jerkey. Now that was good. Don't know his recipe though.

I'm interested!  Have you smoked duck before?

This is how I did some goose breast and it turned out real good.

We also usually cut it in chunks, marinate it, wrap in bacon and grill until the bacon is done.  Soaking it in milk will pull out the game taste as well.  We always soak our snow goose in milk for 24 hrs before we fry it.  Good luck
