7 posts in this topic

im planning on cooking some mallard breasts in the crok pot with bbq sauce, i've tried this before and it didnt turn out too well, i think it was the sauce i used that gave it a funky taste. . . whats everybodys favorite bbq sauce for cooking duck this way?. . . any other tips to make duck this way, im thinking about soaking it in coke overnite before it goes into the slow cooker, heard this makes them tender

One thing I have found out is that it helps to brown the duck breast first. Also to cut up the breast into smaller chunks, dont put the breast in whole. I usually put the chunks in the slow cooker first with a beef broth for about 4 hours then drain and then slow cook them in the bbq sauce for the last 2 hrs. This way the bbq sauce doesnt break down too much from being in the cooker too long.

I have always been a fan of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.

Hope this helps.

A friend of mine cooked duck the way you are describing with coke and BBQ sauce on a recent hunting trip and I thought it was terrible. Don't waste a good coke! Cure 'em and make jerky.

I would never use BBQ in that and ruin good mallard's. If you are gonna use a crock pot brown the birds, use golden mushroom soup, package of lipton onion soup, and a little milk and let simmer on low for 6-8 hours.

Sweet Baby Ray's or Famous Dave's Sweet-n-Zesty have been my faves for duck/goose in the crock pot or on the grill. For crock pot ducks try a mix of soy sauce and chili sauce, or Lipton beef onion recipe packets with about 8oz of water added (I usually cut up potatoes, onions, and carrots and throw 'em in there, too- easy meal!)

cut into quarters or fifths, marinate in bbq sauce for two days, wrap with 1/3 slice bacon per piece, secure with toothpick and toss on the grill. You can also use Italian dressing instead of bbq sauce.

gotta use famous daves with a little water added. The most important part is time. You have to cook these all day on a low tem. When finished the will just fall apart. They are undelievable how good they are.
