First time smoking: Smoking a Duck

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
First time smoking. I am smoking a 6-7lb duck today. Marinated the duck overnight in salt, pepper, ginger, thyme, sage, etc. (Don't remember all the ingredients). I am using a char-griller smoking pro and had some trouble with the heat. My thermometer on the cast iron grill was steady at 250°. Is that too high? Anywho, I have a picture of the duck at 1hr. My initial target was to smoke it for 3.5 to 4hrs.

being poultry 250 or even 300 is ok. that duck looks like he was drinking wild turkey lol (jk). p.s. head on over to roll call for a proper introduction & tell a bit about yourself. welcometo smf.

That duck is very nicely prepared. Is it a commercially raised duck or one that you harvested?

Welcome to the SMF!

Git on up to the Roll Call and tell us about yourself!

haha, Not sure what kind of duck it is but it came packed fresh, not frozen. I got it at an asian market.

The duck turned out pretty good actually, very moist and tasty. As for why I left the head and feet on, I really don't know why.
