Roast Duck by Pellet Grill

The Pit


Using 50/50 blend of Sugar Maple and Hickory Pellets pit temp is 425 degrees.

Pit is pre-warmed so in went the duck.


Twenty minutes later reduced temperature to 350 degrees


Two more hours and the duck was done


After a 20 minute rest duck was ready to care


Plated


Ya just can’t beat the flavor that burning wood adds to any food.

I hate going to a BBQ that is done on a gas grill. No flavor to the food.

When I lived in Texas, they would never consider grilling anything on gas. It was always a wood fire and no coals. Mesquite wood was plentiful. Most folks had a homemade grill. A 50 gallon barrel cut in half and then hinged. They placed it on iron construction horses. Best BBQ I ever ate.

I like the primitive approach too. This duck was smoked over charcoal and cherry wood from a tree I cut down 3 yrs ago.

I agree, wood or charcoal is best. Nice grill! All these fancy American Grills facinate me. Our Braai (grill) is made from an old truck tyre rim. You buy them all over SA, they're pretty cool though. It's got legs and wheels and has a pole with a hook to hang your potjie pot above the fire lol!
P.S The duck looks devine!

Snip, can you give us some food porn and post a pic of that grill? We have some special order ones that look like airplanes, firetrucks, etc. There is a man that makes these special orders. He makes about two a year. They can run into the $$$$. They are folks who are serious grillers and competitors. BBQ in a BIG business in this country.

Addie I would love too but my camera is in the pawn shop along with half my household contents
It's been a bad year!
I'll look online and see if I can find one that looks like ours and try and take a pic with my cell phone over the weekend. Just have to look for my memory stick thingy to download the pic!
