Double smoked ham w/ duck fat drippings

Long time lurker just created an account.

Going to be double smoking a ham tomorrow and will be loosely following Bears delicious sounding recipe. Since I also have a duck thawed, I was thinking about instead of using the ham skin and fat above the ham to render on it, using a duck instead and letting the duck fat render onto the double smoked ham.

I even thought about placing bacon around the duck and letting both render onto the ham.

Not sure is either would be good, but it sure does sound like it.

Anyone tried this before? Thoughts?


Thank you in advance for your input.

Here is the ham and duck before going in. I had some gizzards that needed to be used so I threw them around the duck and some underneath the ham to sit in the juices.

The ham was pretty good, but the duck didn't render like I'd hoped. I tossed it on the grill to crisp it up afterwards.
