How to Make It

Step 1

Remove giblets and neck from duck; reserve for other uses. Rinse duck thoroughly with cold water, and pat dry. Prick fatty areas, except breast, with a fork. Place duck in a large plastic bag with seal.

Step 2

Combine water, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and salt; stir well. Pour over duck in plastic bag; seal bag, and refrigerate overnight. Remove duck, discarding liquid. Rinse duck thoroughly with cold water; pat dry. Lift wingtips up and over back, tucking under duck securely. Fold neck skin under.

Step 3

Prepare fire in smoker, and let burn 10 to 15 minutes. Place water pan in smoker, and fill with 1 bottle of wine. Add enough hot water to fill pan.

Step 4

Place prepared duck on food rack. Cover with smoker lid; cook 8 hours or until drumsticks are easy to move, refilling water pan with additional wine and water as needed.

Step 5

Transfer duck to a serving platter; cool 15 minutes before carving. Garnish with apple and parsley.
