oh yes, I use duck/goose fat for pastry.I love to use it in hot water crust.

Keeping kosher has it's disadvantage. But to answer your question, yes I can, but only couple of times a year, if that.

For folks who think poutine is bad, take a look at this recipe for pancakes fried in duck fat....

First you make the pancakes:

Steven and Chris | Martin Picard's Deep-Fried Pancakes

Then you build the sandwich:

Steven and Chris | Pork Belly & Goat Cheese Vinily Sandwich

OMG--talk about a threat to your arteries!

Obviously these guys don't eat their own food, or they would weigh 300 lbs.

Also, I could never deep fry anything in duck fat. I'm just too darn stingy with the stuff.

steve, how do you deal with the smell of the cooking ducks? do you have very good ventilation?

i've been forbidden to cook duck ever again in the house because the smell of the fat stayed for several days, even with all of the windows open and the ventilator fan going.

You can get Rendered, and refined Duck Fat at places like Whole Foods, and even Trader Joes. No need to be stingy

At a couple of my units, Wednesday is Duck Fat Fried Pommes Frites, with Sea Salt and typically a few house made condiments. Trust me, give it a whirl, it's the stuff dreams are made of, lol.

Bucky, Having the duck cleaned properly helps with the smell, and like I just mentioned above, if you are in it for the fat, the rendered/refined stuff REALLY isn't as strong as doing it yourself. Also, when doing whole ducks, or any cuts with the bones, just like a bone in chicken smells much more like Chicken, than just a boneless & skinless breast which is fairly benign in odor by comparison so, bone OUT if the fam doesn't dig the aroma.
