Do you ever roast or bake duck instead of turkey?  What methods do you use for cooking it?

Big difference between duck and turkey.  First off turkey has alot more meat on it (bigger breast and legs etc, and thats where alot of the meat is located).  I like the neck also and turkey has way bigger neck.

Duck is also all dark meat.  Duck also has a fatty layer under the skin, some people like though because it makes it really greasy and fatty for flavor, so where a turkey the skin bakes crispy, duck it doesnt because it thicker and fatter.  It really just depends what you like or how many plan on eating it.

If you save all that duck skin, throw some in a pan and fry it and it renders down into duck fat grease, then throw some sliced veggies and herbs and spices on it and cook it slowly for a good 20 minutes or more until all veggies fry up softer.  Its really good and the duck fat gives it alot of good flavor.
