Chipotle Smoked Duck with Rhubarbecue Sauce

Smoking or grilling duck is quite different from other poultry for a couple of reasons. To begin with, duck has a thick layer of fat under the skin that needs to be rendered during the cooking process.  To cook the fat out of a duck, one of the best methods is slow roasting on the grill or smoker, allowing the fat to drip out and moisturize the meat as it cooks.  Additionally, duck has very rich and flavorful dark meat, which is difficult to penetrate with marinades for flavor, so rubs and a finishing sauce are a beautiful way to achieve additional dimension to the meat. 

For a change from the bland white meat most people are used to cooking with fowl, this duck will blow you away with its natural flavors and will be enhanced by the smoke of the heat source, the mild spiciness of the rub and the tangy finish to the rhubarb-based barbecue sauce.
