I have just made this this afternoon for tonights tea. It is already tasting YUMMMO.
Just before christmas my hubby culled off 9 ducklings ( 3months old) a young Australorp cockerel (4 months old) .
We smoked a leg of pork for our christmas ham two of the ducks and the cockerel. I've been scouring my recipe books for ideas to do with the smoked duck and chicken to no avail.
Over christmas I made the Oriental Fried noodle salad off the back of the Chang's Noodle packet and it said you could add bbq chicken or pork to make it more delicious than it already is. So I figured..why not smoked duck?
Here's what I did

We cold smoke so the duck wasn't completely cooked with the smoking so I put him in the crockpot with no other ingredients. The smell of this cooking was devine enough. After he was done after 4 hours on high I shredded the meat which just melted off the frame.
I've made the noodle salad off the packet as below.

1/2 to 1 chinese cabbage (out of our garden) shredded finely
6 green onions ( out of our garden) cut into 5mm lengths
100g lightly roasted pinenuts and almonds
1 pkt chang's fried noodle's 100g
Dressing:
1/4 cup white vinegar ( I prefer to use balsamic)
1/4 cup castor sugar
1tblspn Soy sauce
2 tblspn Sesame Oil (optional but adds nice flavour)
1/2 cup olive oil ( a really good quality one)
Combine all the dressing ingredient in a saucepan. Stir well over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool. Toss the cabbage, chopped green oinions and almonds and pine nuts in a salad bowl. Add dressing and mix well. Just before serving add the noodles and toss thoroughly. Add the shredded duck to salad before the dressing.

Yummo

i have made that salad just using bbq chicken. I also substitute the white vinegar but I use rice wine vinegar and a squeeze of lime juice and if I dont have sesame oil I put in some sesame seeds when cooking the dressing.
:hmmm: think will make that tonight!

Lucky you, I have only ever seen a type of BBQ that smokes fish and I wondered if this is what you would use. Next time I'm going past BBQ's Galore I will have a look. Thanks for the reply Darrssy and Happy New Year :D

It's pretty easy to build your own smokehouse..ours isn't anything fancy to say the least. It's just a tin outhouse type shed with a rack in the bottom..hubby sits the wood on there and hangs to meat from the roof. Wallah smokehouse

Darrssy I had enough trouble getting my OH to build a chicken coup :roll: and he is prone to burning the bush(my garden only) so I don't think a smoke house would suit us. Better to stick to something smaller :wink:

If you have a BBQ with a lid, you can use that for smoking. You can get wood chips from BBQ's galore, although a good friend of mine says that apricot wood is excellant. I don't know excatly how to do it, but I'm sure google will give you the answers. Also lilltle stainless steel fish smokers are readily availablle - I'm sure I've seen them at BBQ shops and fishing tackle / outdoors type shops.
