Roast Duck - Help Needed

Nick Z | Jul 26, 2004 12:04 PM

I picked up a half of a duck for a great price this weekend. It is now sitting in some brine awaiting roasting. I have never roasted duck before - could someone help me out? Here are my questions:

1) What temperature? I have seen recipes range from 350 to 450. Should I err towards a hot oven since I have half a duck?

2) To baste or not to baste?

3) What temperature is rare duck? I prefer to use a thermometer, but I have no idea what temperture a nice chunk of rare duck is.
