The Mobile Home Gourmet

You don't need a luxury kitchen to prepare gourmet meals at home. My name is Dennis and I live in a mobile home in a trailer park. This is from my kitchen.

This Week's Feature Recipe:

Grilled Duck

I spatchcocked (butterflied) a whole duck and tried to cook it on my new Weber barbecue grill. A neighbor told me only 2 to 3 chips of oak would be enough to cook a chicken. Wrong. Although the duck cooked nearly enough (I had to finish it in the microwave), it would have cooked much better if there had been an abundant supply of burning coals. I learned my lesson — more fuel. If you enjoy duck, this is a good preparation. It tasted good, if a little chewy. If there had been enough heat, the duck would have benefitted from a longer, slower cook time.
