My Favorite Grilled Duck

Postby megasupermagnum » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:34 pm

I came across a similar recipe last year, and have adjusted it some. I never measure anything, but I'll guess on the measurements.

I marinade overnight in 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce, either teaspoon of garlic powder or a clove of fresh garlic, and about a tablespoon of tabasco sauce. Optional: when ready to cook, I take them out and trim the fat, but I prefer lean meat. I fire up the grill on a medium-high heat, and mix up a rub. For the rub, I use about 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons ground coffee, and I may add a bit of rosemary. This would be where to add any seasonings you prefer. I mix it all up with about a 1/4 cup of olive oil to help it stick. Before I put them on the grill, I brush it on. I grill about 5-10 minutes per side depending on the duck. I just did goose today, and it was more like 15 minutes to get a nice medium rare. The coffee gives it a nice smokey taste, I've had nothing but bad luck with the "liquid smoke". I've never found a better way to cook duck, even better than the old bacon wrapped and baked. Enjoy. :beer:

Thanks.
Really, 1.5 T coffee? That sounds like it would really be overpowering? You're not the first to mention coffee though, I'll have to try that.

Looks good. We do a lot of grilled duck here as well.

Sous vide, then grill hot and fast. :thumbsup:

Duck Parmesan is pretty damn good, so is Duck Tenderloin Marsala. :thumbsup:

At that amount, people can't even tell its coffee. They ask me if they are smoked. I do like a very smoky flavor though. I should have mentioned, the measurements I listed should do between maybe 10-20 breasts.

I think I've heard about Sous Vide cooking, probably in a late night infomercial. I watch a lot of antenna TV when I'm hunting, I always get that thick talking guy selling his pressure cooker thing at night. I'll have to give it a try. I'll say that grilling is even easier than baking. It takes just a minute to put the breasts in a bowl with the marinade. Then its just brushing them and slapping on the grill. You are eating in 15 minutes. :thumbsup:
