Why Duck Legs?

Best prepared low and slow, duck legs are the perfect protein to prepare in your smoker or pellet grill. The rich, savory duck leg meat is enhanced by the smoky flavor, and your guests will be sure to enjoy the tender, fall of the bone meat that comes with slowly smoking duck legs.

Smoked Duck Legs

Simple savory Smoked Duck Legs are on the menu this summer! Oregano and thyme in a delicious dry rub spice up these legs. We recommend smoking these duck legs with Brussels sprouts as a side and serving them with a cool glass of lemonade.

Hardwood Smoked Duck and Pasta

A pasta dish enhanced by the flavor of smoked duck, the Hardwood Smoked Duck and Pasta recipe is a great way to explore a new taste with a bit of familiarity. Easy to make, this dish paired with a glass of wine is perfect for dinner with friends and family.

Kentucky Summer Harvest

The Kentucky Summer Harvest contains a wide array of ingredients that come together to create a dish packed with mouth-watering flavors. If you are looking to expand your palate even more, try using duck legs to create this dish instead of the traditionally used duck breast. Top off the dish with a savory Blackberry-Rhubarb-Bourbon Compote for everyone to enjoy.

As you plan out your summer smoking menu, be sure to try duck legs to add variety and a tender, tasty dish to your line up. For menu ideas check out any of Maple Leaf Farms social channels.
