Great write up for sure! I would love to try that! Looks really good!
The bad thing is the older you get the faster it goes!Welcome, and Yes it does go fast. 3 more days will make 14yrs. dang
Thanks Peachy, I have a chicken thigh thread in my signature.Congratulations on the rotator ride! I look forward to seeing your chick thigh thread. The duck sure looks good even if you didn’t think it tasted that way.
Thanks a lot Brian!Looks great Al. Sure like your set up. I doing another Judy rye this week. Gave a loaf to a friend and now he wants me to show him how to make. I normally do the SD version but may try the regular for him since he does not have starter.
Thank-you very much!Great cook Al! looks like you nailed it!
Thanks John!Looks Great, Al !!
Looks like that Duck was in the wrong neighborhood, and got into a Knife Fight !!
Thanks CM, I really appreciate it!Al, Your duck/taters looks excellent, I 'd eat the pictures !
Thanks David,Al that looks fantastic on the spit and the last picture before the carving. I only had Duck once
and I found it too oily for me . But yours I would try a bite because it does not look that oily.
Very good show and tell, thank you
also congrats on the ride
Thanks a lot JJ!Sure looks good Al. The PHO sounds interesting. Had a few varieties but not Duck.
I made Duck, Breasts Med/Rare and Confit Legs in a Tomato Sauce over Pasta. Most of the family said they liked the Legs but thought the Breasts tasted too Gamey to bother making again. I liked it all! Shame they are not cheaper...JJ
Thank-you my friend!Great write up for sure! I would love to try that! Looks really good!
Thank you very much!It's a thing of beauty Al. Nice details on the process.
Ha Ha, your too nice!Never had duck but yours looks delicious (as all your posts do)! You the man, Al!!!
First of all thank you for the compliment!I missed this yesterday. Great post, Al!
Like you I just always wanted to try one and I'm always trying to think of something to use the spinner for.
It was good but not that impressive and though I'll probably never do another I"m glad I finally tried it.
I never thought about scoring the skin.
Thank you,Al, that duck looks good. I was thinking about trying duck, but I may pass. Wife is not a fan, and I need to feed her or she get ornery.
Totally understand. I've lost track of the things I've mentioned trying and was told she didn't like it.. Wife is not a fan
Looks like you did a great job. At least now you can say you did it, whether or not you ever make it again. I've never made duck in any form. May do so someday but like you I love doing the chicken thighs.
Totally understand. I've lost track of the things I've mentioned trying and was told she didn't like it.
When I asked if she'd had it she just says "No but I just know I wouldn't like it."
I'm old enough to know not to argue with logic like that. It's a lose-lose...
Very Nice Al! You got to have a little variety some times.
Thanks a lot guys!This looks like a great cook. Nailed it- well done!
Thank you very much Keith!Wow great write up and cook Al !
I'm not much for duck but I'd definitely try yours.
And congrats on the ride !
Thank you very much Kevin!Its a strange world we live in, turkeys are cheap, cornish hens cost more than chickens and you have to pay that much for the loser of a Duck knife fight! LOL.... Al I love game ducks, and have upon occassion had a store bought Peking, but I'll stick with whats in season.
It looks really good. I have tried and have heard raves for scoring to get the fat out (even from Ms. Julia), but I generally bake or smoke 'em and have never had a problen with the rendering. The fat is the nector of the Gods. The best I ever did was whole Wood Ducks stuffed with a Yankee stuffing, croutons, nuts with some salt, pepper, sage and cranberries or any fruit. Low and slow
I have never had duck were it was as impressive as the price should suggest. I have yet to try asian deep fried and smoked, cracklin skin and all that. But willing to try it.
BTW I have the same problem with bought rabbits, fish, etc etc... Oh let us not forget oxtails too! LOL I can't for the life of me understand why they would charge more for a duck than a turkey/chicken. I mean the farmer is happier to kill those noisy ducks!
Your preparation and presentation look outstanding. Sorry it wasn't what you anticipatied. I bet no one noticed but you though.
