Duck for Thanksgiving

3 posts in this topic

so after readind the "goose on the grill" thread i got to thinking about duck. I usually fillet the breast out, but back in early october i particpated in a game farm hunt for a fund raiser and acquired a few whole ducks.

So whats the best way to cook whole duck? Should i roast it or bake it? i have no idea. Probably gonna bring it to dinner tomorrow so a reciepe kind to all people would be very helpful.

thanks,

Fellas

Wrap the entire duck with bacon and place it in a cooking bag. Add enough water so that there's about a 1/4" water level in bag when breast down. Cut up a bunch of onion and place in the bag. Bake duck at 300 for about 3 hours. Meat should fall off the breast plate when done. Key is to save all the juice from the bacon, onion and water in a separate bowl. Remove duck meat from bone and place it in the bacon, onion, water juice. Season with salt and pepper. By de-boning duck and placing it back in the au jus it keeps it moist and tasty. **As others have posted, marinating in Italian dressing for a day (do not use the Zesty Italian---rather regular Italian), wrapping in bacon (1 x 1 chunk of meat)and grilling it until the bacon is done is awesome. We'll typically breast out all our teal and grill it as such. Have a great Thanksgiving.

We use the Zesty Italian for marinating and have had very good luck with it. Even have the women coming back for seconds and thirds. NO FAT FREE dressing though! Our motto is "All the fat, all the time."

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
