Recipe Ingredients

      Directions 

      Score the fat cap of the duck, cutting through the fat but not into the duck breast meat.

      Season both sides of the duck with a light dusting of garlic powder, and a more liberal seasoning of salt and pepper.

      Let the duck rest in the refrigerator until your grill is up to temperature. Set grill to 500 degrees with direct heat for searing. Grill grates work great for duck because when the duck fat drips off, it will catch on fire if it hits the coals, so be careful. The Grill Grates (https://www.grillgrate.com) will catch a lot of the drippings and eliminate flare ups.  Cook the duck fat side down first to render the fat.

      After about 2-3 minutes and you have good markings, turn the breast 90 degrees to mark it again. Flip after 2-3 minutes.

      Turn 90 degrees for grill marks and when the duck breast reaches an internal temperature of about 130, you can remove the duck and let it rest for 5 minutes and allow the carry over heat to reach an internal temperature of 135, medium rare.

      The right smoke

      Ax Breaker - in case you’re curious Quebracho translates to Ax Breaker. I’m glad someone broke a few axes on these trees - the charcoal is by far the best I’ve ever used.
      You know that acrid smoke that you get from a lot of charcoals? The white smoke that, until you get the temp just right, won’t go away. And if you put the meat on, turn your back for two seconds and then look back - it’s all white again because the temp got too high too fast… This charcoal holds temps really well, so I’ve avoided that acrid smoke on every cook.
      5 stars - would buy again. Worth the price.

      Love it!

      I used to use a propane torch for silver soldering. It was a touch hotter, but requires me to hold the torch close to the flame upside down. I like the handle and holding this torch upright. I’ve used proper torch, BGE lifter blocks, and electric heaters. This torch is the fastest way to light my fire.

      This is the BEST charcoal I have used. It lights super quick burns super clean and burns super Long. It burns very hot too. Thank you fogo

      Amazing!

      This charcoal is hands down the best, it has lasted me months and has great taste and burns hot!
