Due to a recent lip-smacking photo of a pork pot roast in another thread, I think Christmas this year will be pork. I've never seen fresh duckling, only frozen, down here, a few of which seem to be available all year -- am thinking maybe Easter Quacker.

I have an unopened jar of duck fat in the pantry, saved for something special - don't know what.

It is a great page for duck.

And if I get confused with Andy, well.. that's ok.. except for him maybe.

Claire,

Our kitchen has horrendous ventilation, just a wall mounted exhaust fan that I think make more noise than it moves air.

The duck doesn't smoke us out, we don't get any smoking from it at all as far as I can tell. You might be surprised and be ok.

I have no exh fan and did not notice any smoke either. Maybe if some of the fat had spilled with all that flipping, but none from the sheet pan the fat was collecting in.

As it happens, I called our local butcher yesterday to order a Christmas rib roast and, as a side note, he happened to mention that "oh, by the way, we also have a number of fresh ducks and geese coming in." So by that, I would assume that it's in season.

I love to cook and eat duck, my fav way at present is BBQ Attachment 12542
oh bolas, your golden grilled duckling is always a sight to behold! i've never had bbq duck. i bet it is wonderful that way though--crispy, smoky, moist dark meat wonderful. is there a way for you to catch any of the duck fat when it is cooked on the grill?

your xmas at the bombay dynasty sounds like a great plan. i hope you enjoy the indian cuisine and have yourselves a wonderful holiday time, bolas!!

nothing puts me in the mood for duck so much as your gorgeous birds on the grill, bolas!! (last year, there were two of them, i recall:) )

thanks steve. i can see getting fresh, full grown beasts at this time of year, but i wondered how they get ducklings in winter.

vit, i used to breed small parrots (keets, conures, etc.), but all i did was provide a nest box and a special diet. the birds did the rest, lol. but it definitely was influenced by light cycles, temp, and other natural factors.

For fancy holiday roasts, I usually go to Clanceys in Linden Hills. They're expensive, but they can get almost anything you want: lamb, duck, goose, bison, rabbit. The butcher case looks like art. I also go to Hackenmueller's in Robbinsdale sometimes. Good selection of beef, pork, chicken, and sausages made in their own smokehouse. Prices are pretty good, too.
