I'm surprised the skin was crisp in places, though. When I smoke poultry, the skin gets leathery and virtually inedible. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe it's because I usually put a mustard-based paste on it.

How much did it weigh, how long did it take to smoke and at what temp?
Thanks Craig, I didn't weigh the bird, smoked it at 325F until the juices ran clear. About 2 hours. I like smoking poultry at 325 or higher. The meat doesn't benefit from a low heat smoke like brisket or pulled pork. IMO
The high heat helps crisp the skin. Thanks again!

Thank you TQ, I hope you give it a try. Domestic duck has a lot more meat and more fat than a wild one but both are tasty.
