Wood ducks are not only admired for their colors and beauty, but they are also one of the best tasting waterfowl. I love eating ducks as much as I love hunting them. My typical go to recipes includes either gumbo or seared blackened duck, but I wanted to add some smoke flavor to these delicious little birds and any fruity/tangy chutney always compliments the flavor of duck.
I placed several wood ducks in a simple brine for two days before smoking them with cherry pellets. The flavor of the Harvesting Nature Waterfowl Rub, along with the smoky flavor, and sweet and slightly spicy chutney was a great combination.
