  1. Put a bamboo skewer through one of the duck legs and across to the other leg.
  2. Put another skewer through the wings. This will help keep the duck flat.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place onto a warmed BBQ plate, skin side down, for about 5 minutes until the skin begins to brown.
  5. Turn the BBQ down to low, turn the duck over and cover with a lid or the hood of the BBQ and allow to cook for about 30 minutes.
  6. After 30 minutes, turn it over and let the skin crisp up for another 5 -10 minutes.
  7. Remove from the BBQ onto a clean plate and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes.
