Smoked Duck

  1. I am new to smoking meat, only been doing it for about 6 months.  I am currently working on smoking a duck and am just about to put it in my MES.  Please help me with the smoker temp, safe internal temp, and rough cook times.  This duck is about 5.5lbs. Also, what are some side items that go well with duck?

    I would personally smoke it round 250*.... Safe IT is 165* in the breast !

    No problem, you'll be looking at a few hours to smoke it, but each bird or piece of meat can differ ! As far as sides, I think I'd go with a side of garlic mashed taters, a veggie & a piece of garlic toast !

    Look forward to seeing your smoke !

  5. Just pulled it out of the smoker with IT @ 160*.  Now I am putting it in the oven, tented in foil to finish off while I prepare my sides!

    That looks awesome, nice smoke ! :kewl:
     
  7. Thank you, it tasted pretty good!  Little disappointed that the smoke flavor didn't penetrate the layer of fat, but for my first time ever even dealing with duck, I think it turned out great.  Can't wait to attempt my next smoke, salmon!

    Nice job, salmon is a great smoke... Ya gonna brine it or do it fresh ?
     
  9. I am not sure.  Again it is one of those meats that I have never eaten so I will have to look over some forums to see what the general consensus says and go from there.  All I know for sure is that I bought some cedar planks to smoke them on.
