Recommended Posts

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.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
