Default Smoke in a duck

I am doing the gumbo cooking contest next weekend and I was going to slide in some duck with a little smoke in (also doing a duck pond to sway the judges). Just found out that I can only use propane fired cooking devices. I have a cheapie but OK grill and a mega country cooker. Anybody got an idea about how to put a little smoke in my duckies given this hardware??

Indirect heat (if your grill is big enough) - get a beer can stand (or heck, use the beer can!) to set the duck up. Get a cast iron chip box (smoker box) or do the foil packet trick and have at it!!

You probably won't need a whole lot of smoke to really make a difference.

Another option would be to spend the bucks for an American Outdoors verticle propane smoker (model 3600 I think) like Brian uses. Or a All-in-one (I think that's the name) by Charbroil or Brinkmann -- you can grill, smoke, or fry on it -- basically it's a turkey fryer with options.

I think these run about $150 or so at Wally World.

Just a thought!! :D

Thanks David

I might become another heretic (sp?) and start using gas ( instead of just passing it)

I was only suggesting since the rules of your competition require gas equipment :D Brian likes his and if you look at TKs post with the weekend's bounty you'll see his bud standing guard over a gas smoker (with the gravlox) while cooking the red meat on a charbroil/AO conversion rig.

I'm thinking of getting a couple of the American Outdoors "Big Block" cookers - inside is 16x24 instead of 16x16 - to use for catering or group cookouts at the church, etc. I figure I could cook on wood and use these as warmers or if I have a push I can use these for the 'que.

Mark,

Those look pretty cool - first one was out of stock tho.

I'll have to go see if Academy has any that I can look at.

Buy a live duck, put it on a liquid smoke diet, butcher a month later, and viola, smoked duck.

Nice one...you're fittin' in real well.

Sounds better than what I was thinking.

Buy live duck, butcher, roll in butcher paper, light one end and puff.

By the way, what part does the viola play? Godfatheresque background music?
