The thing about this thread is this: You asked an opinion question. Now you have all the answers your ever going to need. I won't bother telling you what I do to my birds, but I will offer this advise. TRY ALL THE ABOVE. The cool thing about eating duck and goose is the fact that it is so versitile. So go ahead and smoke it, jerk it, grill it, bake it, fry it, sautee it, and deep fry it. Since your new to eating it, try doing a google search for duck recipes, or preparing duck, and so on. Your options will seem to be endless.
It's hard to pull 1 inch through 6 inches of material while doing "the dance", and looking skyward.
