Number of Servings: 10-12 servings depending on size of duck

- Smoked Duck,
- Andouille

Directions: Set a duck upright on drunken chicken stand and smoke it for an hour or so until cooked. IMPORTANT: set a pan underneath duck filled with beer and onions to steam and flavor duck and more importantly to collect duck fat to be used later. Pick apart duck, set meat aside and boil remaining bones for stock. Strain liquid in pan through sieve and cool. once the clean, smoke infused fat separates from other liquid, melt it down and add an equal amount of flour and stir to make roux until desired darkness is achieved. Add Cajun Trinity (chopped onions, peppers, garlic, and other flavoring vegetables) once vegetables are wilted, add duck stock, and stir until well mixed. Add Andouille, Tasso, Duck and remaining spices to taste. bring to a light boil until flavors marry then reduce heat and serve over rice and garnish with file.
