Hay, if U an't smoked a duck, go back to camel's ...Ha Ha. No really I have done both duck & turkey breast. But since U want dux check it out:

1. Soak the duck in Brown sugar & orange juice. or
2. Marinade it in Red wine over night. or
3. soak it in "salt water" to get rid of the blood & ducky flavor
4. Marinate or "Rub" your favorite "mix/sauce" & go for it.

5. With game shears cut up the backbone and down the breast, making two halves. "air dry" meat (wipe off moisture) ; spray PAM on the racks;put wet smokn chips into smoker; Place ducks rib side down on the smoker, put lid on !! Come back in 2 hours & add more chips!! Total time 4 hours +/- . ( I can do 2 25# turkey breast at a time in mine)
I'm @ 4500 feet elevation if that meens anything.....Later Ed

I filet out my duck/goose breast boneless and trim all fat and other non-meat stuff off. Marinate them overnight in soy sauce with garlic, oregeno, basil and black pepper (to taste). Put in smoker until medium rare. Time depends on size of breast. Chill and slice cross-grain very thin. Serve with good Wisconsin cheese and crackers. Your guests will rave on the snackins'!

Smoking ducks is an oppertunity. But there are things to consider. Broken bones with blood and tissue. Infections waiting to grow.
Therefore. Rinse them well, and salt them well. I wouldnt say its enough with orange juice and maple syrup.
Over here ( in europe), we put them in a basin with salt water in the refrigirator, Salinity about 25% a little sugar added.
After that, and dried. You can smoke anything.
IF, you smoke it hot enough it will be boiled also and you get rid of the bacteria. If you stay on low temp. its at your own risk.
The best delicatesse around here is smoked eider breasts. The salted bare meat is smoked as bacon, semihot. used on sandwiches.

I have to agree with fishmunkie. soy sauce, garlic, pepper, oregano, basil. I also add a worshester (sp) sauce. soak over night and smoke with cherry wood. Let cool, slice thin and serve with pepper jack cheese, crackers, green olives and beer. :getdown: :getdown: :getdown:
