Whole Duck with Figs & Potatoes

How to: BBQ a Whole Duck

A hot roasted duck on the BBQ is another way to create delicious tender meat and crispy skin. And it's so easy!

Technique Using Roasting Pan

  1. Pre heat BBQ to 200C.
  2. Place duck on a rack to allow the fat to drain into a roasting tray (to catch the juices). Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place in the coolest part of the BBQ for about 40 mins per kilo (turn off some of the gas jets).
  4. Allow to rest for about 20 mins before jointing and serving.
  5. There will be quite a bit of fat in the bottom of the roasting tray (this is good) - you can use this fat to cook your potatoes on the flat plate.
