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."

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
