    That's what I do :tu It draws the blood out and that is where you get that swampy taste from.

    Same here. Soak them in a brine (water and kosher salt) for a day to get the blood out.
    I think someone said age them in the fridge for a week, I do this as well (not for a week in the brine!:no )
    Then marinate them in Italian dressing or make your own with olive oil, red and /or balsamic vinegar, Italian seasoning, chopped garlic, kosher salt and pepper. Ready to cook and enjoy. A sauce always helps as well.

    I also add a little Baking Soda to the water with the salt.

    Breast out the duck. Cut into 1/8" thick pieces (cross grain). Sprinkle with a nice seasoning like Pappy's or something similar. Cut a small piece of onion and a small piece of Jalape?o pepper (remove all the seeds and veins if you want it more mild). Wrap the duck, onion and Jalapeno up in a half piece of bacon. It is best if the duck is not hanging out and try to run a tooth pick through all the items. BBQ on a hot grill for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side. Duck should be a nice medium-rare, medium at the most.

    I have served these at dinner parties, Xmas appetizers, duck camps, etc. People who don't even eat wild game at all cannot believe how good these are. "Jalape?o Duck Poppers!" :tu
