First time poster...DUCK!!!!

Ok, this is my first post on here, which considering my question, is appropriate. I have quite a bit of cooking experience, and I'm sure I will be sharing many recipes/stories over time. But, this is the first time I have ever had a duck in my home. Recently, I was given a whole frozen smoked duck. As far as I know, a smoked duck is one that's ready to eat, but in it's current form is a duckcicle. Whats the best way to heat this bad boy up?

I have plenty of rice, taters and other stuff to go with it for sides. Not sure how it's been seasoned though (if at all) so it should be an adventure. Thanks in advance and looking forward to cooking with you all.

Welcome to DC, Chris! There are plenty of duck afficiandos here, they will jump in.

I know with my smoked Greenberg turkey, heating is not recommended, just serve at room temp. Not sure about your duck. Is it home smoked, or commercial?

Ha! Fellow iPad user!

To turn auto correct off:

1. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Keyboard

2. Touch Auto-Correction -> OFF

I have never served one but, I think you are supposed to serve it on quackers!

Vitauta will know what to do. She has a duckcicle in her home too.

welcome chris.

i've only cooked raw duck before, so i'm not sure about how to reheat a smoked ducksicle. maybe just defrost and reheat as you would leftover turkey, either in a nuker, in gravy, or in an oven on a rack in a pan with some water.

although, parts of the duck are usually best served medium on the medium rare side, such as the breast. and the skin is supposed to be crisp.

since it is smoked, maybe you could cut it into halves and reheat it, bone side down, on the grill.
