Easy to make, lip-smacking teriyaki duck legs, finished on the grill. The trick is to braise the duck or, in this case specklebelly goose legs, until they’re tender, then get them sticky and charred over coals.

We are taking the show to Arkansas! My annual duck hunt and cooking school will be near Stuttgart, Arkansas this January. I’ll be working with Coastal Wings Outfitters again, and we’ll be hunting, cooking and learning how to eat everything but the quack.
There is a problem with smoked duck: You have spent all this time to smoke a duck or goose, but most of the best meat is in the breast. After you eat that, what then? Make this soup. It makes the best use of the leftovers and is easy to make.
I would never have thought to do this recipe if it weren’t for my friend Jesse Griffiths in Texas, who does this with his blue-winged teal ducks. My version is different, more desert Southwest, but I am really happy with it. Great for dinner parties or for weeknight portions made on the weekend.
If there is a more unloved game bird than the sea duck, I don’t know what it is. Treated as if they were puddle ducks, they earn that bad rep. But take them as they are and sea ducks can be good eating. Here’s what you need to know.
I love duck confit, but it can take a while to make. This is an easier way. If you roast duck legs with this method, you will get the same effect as confit but in less time. Meltingly tender meat with crisp skin. Do this recipe with either duck legs or goose legs.
A quick, easy and tasty way to enjoy the fruits of your waterfowl hunt. Deviled duck hearts are a British thing, and they’re hearts, dusted in flour seasoned with mustard and cayenne, cooked quickly and served with a watercress salad. A damn good appetizer or snack.
Learning how to render duck fat isn’t hard, but there are a few tricks to know. Here’s how I do it with both wild or farmed ducks and geese. We also have a new video showing you the process.
