Next month I have some friends coming over to celebrate Christmas and Thanksgiving, we set the date in between both holidays. I have cooked a duck in the past but never smoked a duck and would like to give it a try. So I have a few questions if anyone could answer them for me I would appreciate it. 1. What would is best wood for smoking a duck and about how long do you smoke it for and the temperature of the duck should be at when finished? 2. Do I need to let the duck soak in a brine and if so for how long? 3. Also if someone could give me a good recipe for smoked duck like rub or something else to put on it? Thank You for your help!
