Naths attempt at Shaynes Szechuan Duck.

Post by Nath » Sun Sep 08, 2013 3:47 pm

After seeings Shaynes recipe of Szechuan smoked duck, I just had to give it a go!
See Shaynes recipe here
http://www.aussiebbq.info/forum/viewtop ... chuan+duck
(Not a recipe mods feel free to move this to appropriate location if nessecary)

Picked a "luv-a-duck" duck from my local Chinese grocer, washed patted dry and then hung to dry for 24hrs or so.

My kamado frame sat nicely over my laundry sink, so this is where I hung my duck to dry overnight with the aid of a fan to keep airflow.
Image

The duck has been hanging for 19hrs
Image
Still has a few feather quills poking out but I figure they will fry out when I fry. I may pluck them before any of the poaching/frying.

Not sure how this isn't going to make me sick, hanging poultry at room temperature for 24hrs, however I figure the Chinese have been doing it for centuries, and willing to give it a go.

Can't wait until dinner time!
Updates to come!

Good on you for giving it a go Nath! I'm a bit reluctant to hang out the duck in Perth temperatures but might have to give it a crack.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you go!

I'm in Perth aswell mate, have the laundry door cracked open over night with a fair bit of airflow from the fan. It's surprisingly cool in there.

Good stuff Nathan!

Too bad you might have a belly ache and not be able to go to work tomorrow!

You know I heard somewhere that Fishing and Diving is a good cure for belly ache!

Whipped up a quick fried rice first to go with the finished duck

The duck brought to the boil in water, and then simmered in the master stock,

Set up the kettle with a bed of heatbeads for the GA to rest on ala Shaynes robot turds.
The smoking medium.

Looks pretty damn good, already had a feed but need another one now after seeing that . Can't beat a well cooked duck.

Damn good lookin Duck brother

How did you go with the quills. I have always found that they stay in till the end of a cook unless i pull them out at the start(longnose pliers go well).
