Oh, my favorite duck story? We were camping in Lafayette, Louisiana. There is no way in heck I'd roast a duck in an RV. Smoke! SMOKE! So we put it out on the Weber. We were at lake-side. A dozen ducks surrounded us and watched us. My husband, another couple who were visiting, and I looked around and thought it was a weird moment. It was very strange. It just seemed more than a little odd to have a flock of ducks watching us cook a duck. (p.s., it was delicious).

And no, they didn't attack us and try to rescue the duck.

those ducks that came to watch - do you think they KNEW? were they looking at you accusingly? how long did they stay and observe? the whole scene is so very strange....

Maybe so, but I would consider drizzling it on cookies.
