LC, thanks for the inspiration and recipe, I finally did my peking duck this weekend, not as good as yours but passable. Not sure I'll do it again any time soon though, WAY too much work and mess!

link to LC's original post...

a little digression, ribs from last night...

royal bath ingredients...

rather than dunking, i poured over the bird set on a grid over a large basin in the sink, reboiled and poured again. repeated 3 or 4 times...

after drying in fridge overnight...

my variation, after the overnighter, it looked and smelled kind of bland, so i brushed the bird lightly with wife's favourite home blend duck sauce just before egging...

propped up the breasts and legs with foil-wrapped plumbing copper to maximise skin exposure and reduce cleavage...

used TJV's AR for the cook, pizza stone on level 1 with plumbing copper and shallow drip pan, bird on level 3, threw in two chunks of cherry and started cooking at 375, unfortunate I got distracted by the Birthday Mini Egg (see another post to come) and the temp ran high to 425. pulled at 190+ legs and 160+ breasts...

DW making the pancakes...

leg skin very crispy and no fat, breast skins not as crispy but still good, see the fat under the breast skin? should've watched the temp and give it more time to render the fat, also wondered if piercing the breast skin and blanching longer would've helped. meat was juicy and delicious...

to summarise, it was a fun and tasty cook in spite of the work and mess. bonus: collected lots of liquid gold (duck fat!), meat for lettuce wrapped duck tomorrow, bones for soup!

thanks for reading this far, have a great week! and thanks again to LC!
