Smoked Duck

Enjoy the flavor of duck combined with the woody aroma of the smoking process

If you're ready to fire up the smoker for a taste of duck, this recipe incorporates a dry rub and a sweet-n-sour basting sauce. You'll only need the smoker for half an hour or so at 225 degrees, so think about throwing on a few other goodies such as hen or turkey for freezing.
