I picked up a couple Unibroue offerings. I prepared it pretty simply(as my buddy suggested). Stuffed them with carrots, onions, celery, and apples, seasoned them up, and Iím gonna let them cook in the slow cooker for about six hours.

Beat me to it.


I mean, there are two ducks and they are wild. How can Duck Duck Gooze not be perfect?


I traded a Cantillon gueuze for these two ducks. Seriously. So, Duck, Duck for Gueuze

Good trade as long as it was already plucked.... or was it skinned. I hate when people skin ducks.

Slow cookers are a scourge...anyone putting a wild duck in a slow cooker should lose the right to future duck forever....

I should say that it wasnít a true trade - my buddy gave me the ducks, and I gave him a Cantillon. It just worked out that we did it at the same time. So, it was and wasnít a trade. They were plucked and cleaned, but not skinned. He left the hearts and gizzards in, too. Yum.

My buddyís been hunting for about 20 years, and he said that he has tried all methods of cooking the ducks he brings home, and slow cooking them is his favorite way, by far, to cook them. The river ducks around here have very little fat. Iíve never cooked wild duck before, so I went with his suggestions.

This^^^^^

Seriously....do some research never...and I mean never ever excepting to save your own life...accept the recommendations of rednecks or other hunters when it comes to cooking. I have cousins who deepfry some of the best meat on the planet, others who swear by adding bacon fat to ground venison to make it tastier. Those guys are retards, donít listen to them

I slow cooked a duck once on the stove top--in a dutch oven. I drowned it in 4 cups of chicken broth and 3 cups of bourbon whiskey. Simmered it for 45 minuets and then let it stand (in the liquids) for another half hour. Served up very tasty. Iíd probably pair that with a big barrel aged barley wine.
