Tried smoking the duck on the bbq,fantastic! The basting liquid turns the duck a gorgeous dark brown colour and tastes amazing! Lovely subtle smoke flavor. It takes less time to cook on the bbq and there is no need to cook it in the oven at the end to get a crisp skin. Everyone loved it, I will absolutely make it again!
