Ingredients

2
ducks
1 tsp
fresh lemon
1 tsp
thyme
1 tsp
italian parsley
1 tsp
rosemary
1 tsp
sage
4 Tbsp
kosher salt
"just a pinch" of pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove heads, feet, giblets and excess fat from ducks. Using poultry shears or strong kitchen scissors, remove tails and backbones; cut each bird in half through breastbone, then in quarters. Rinse and pat dry.
2
Prick all over with the tines of a fork. Combine herbs with salt and pepper and rub all over duck pieces, pressing well into skin.
3
Place quarters on a rack in a roasting pan, skin side up, and cook in a 300 oven for about 1 hour, until the fat has rendered into the pan - up to 2 or 3 cups.
4
Remove from oven but leave on rack to continue dripping for about 45 minutes.
5
Start a charcoal fire (a covered grill is most efficient for this) and when coals are ready and spread, place duck quarters on rack, skin side down.
6
Cover grill and cook 10 minutes. Turn duck, cover grill and cook 15 minutes.
7
Reverse and cook skin side up for about 5 minutes more, covered; serve immediately.
