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