how to cook ringneck

Postby duckhunter10610 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 9:03 am

Those who think that ring necks are uneatable are sadly mistaken! I have been eating it all my life and its super tender!

Step 1: put the ring neck in salt water and soak for 2 days. Change the water about once a day.
Step 2: after it soaks for two days soak in milk over night, make sure completely cover the duck
Step 3: cut breasts into thing strips
Step 4: soak in dales seasoning for around 5 minutes
Step 5: coat with flour, add seasoning to own taste
Step 6: fry in vegetable oil till golden brown.

Will post pics on reply box tomorrow, I am making some tonight its soaking in milk at this very moment!

Enjoy and God Bless
God Bless

I baked a ringneck for the first time last year. Turned out better than I expected. I just cleaned and skinned it (I know most don't skin em), put it in the center of a small glass dish of par boiled brown rice with a small amount of chipped pork mixed in. Two strips of bacon over the breast to keep it from drying out and cooked it slow on about 250 for an hour. Needless to say I had dinner for the night and it was great.

Yeah it was "one if those evenings". Nasty out and had hunted from daybreak till 1-2pm and was in the mood to cook. I had never heard of it before either but just kinda threw it together. That's generally how I cook... By the seat of the pants and I don't measure or time much. Just put some things together that sound good and cook till I think it's right. I was surprised as well.

Never brined or soaked my ringers in anything, except the marinade I chose for that preferred dish. Usually it was just some dry rub, olive oil, and a little soy. Granted they were made into poppers for a quick meal, but I think there meat is as good as some puddlers. Their diet is pretty fresh dependent upon where they were shot. Down here they feed mostly on hydrilla in the freshwater.

I just wrap ducks in bacon and grilled them. Never thought about soaking and marinading anything but beef to get that cow taste out of it. :huh: I have some ribeyes (ain't sure where the eyes are but I hope I don't eat 'em!) in the freezer. So, soak them for 2 days in salt water, drain every day, and then marinade them in buttermilk over night. Might just have to try that. :thumbsup:

Wasn't referring to ringnecks, Inda...........see tmclaimer's highlight about 'merganzers and coots'. I don't shoot em, but if I ever make that mistake, I was glad to see a place I could send them to be eaten.

Can truthfully say I've never eaten one. Not to say I wouldn't try it if I was sure the person offering wasn't pulling my leg! Never could ever figure out how they get south, either. They must walk! Never do ever see 'em more than 5 or 10 feet off the water. overpasses must give them hell on the migration!

They migrate exclusively at night. This has been documented by radio tracking. they take off the marsh at dusk, and settle back on water at dawn. I have been on the marsh inda blind when a large flock of migrating coots has landed, it was a sight to see....and you can ask jehler-coots do fly and gain altitude down here. Coonasses will choot dem if dey don't!! :lol3:

I have been hunting for many years but have only started really getting into cooking over the last two. I always soak the ducks and geese in salt water for a day or two but I have never heard of using milk. Why milk and does it matter what kind?

I normally still marinade the breasts in other sauces like teriyaki / garlic / beer marinades before grilling or cooking. Is the milk instead of that or would you still use other marinades after the milk?

it's the enzymes in milk. they pull out some of the compounds that give meat a "wild" taste. buttermilk works best on catfish..... :thumbsup:

Yea any milk works and yea I still do marinades after the milk for extra flavor. It helps alot with taking the gamyness out of the birds. Hope this helps :smile:
