Kuby's stuff is good. Last season I found a guy who wanted all my ducks and would clean them. I can't remember eating a single duck and only cleaned a limit.
Guy is the biggest proponent of duck sausage on this board...just be careful if he offers to share
If you want to bring Judd out of hibernation, just make a post about duck sausage, he will come out of the wood work. Judd don't don't like just any duck sausage tho, he likes big fat ones.
Seriously, I did Kubys duck sausage twice. First time it was excellent, however I could not taste any duck in it, and I wonder if they threw away all my duck and just gave me pork. So the second time I did it, I told them I could not taste any duck last time, so the second time I could taste the duck, it was a lot dryer, and was really not that good. So not sure what to think. End of season if I have a lot duck in the freezer I will try it again tho.
Mallards I like to eat like a streak, I breast out but leave the skin on, cook on cast iron skillet very tasty. And I try not to freeze, eat it freash, but like to age it a week or so.
