    I made this last night using a recipe provided by Alton Brown. Duck brined in orange juice, salt, garlic, pepper, and thyme. Steamed, then browned in a cast iron skillet until crispy. It went well with dressing, scalloped potatoes, and green beans. Not pictured is the Sam Adams Summer Ale.

    It is indeed amazing. Chances are, as far as duck goes, I'll stick to this recipe and my old standby one: Bacon wrapped and grilled duck breasts.

    The instructions make it sound harder than it is, but your work is minimal. It is smoke intensive so open some windows once the duck hits the cast iron. Brining keeps the duck from getting dry during the steaming time. The finished product is crispy on the outside, velvety on the inside, and very, very tasty.

    Here's the link to the recipe:

    A days worth of duck hunting would result in 15-20 duck breasts wrapped in bacon and smoke for about 6 hours. Now I'm hungry. Nice photos.
