Smoked Orange Rosemary Duck is a wonderful way to smoked duck breast with a citrus flavor. This succulent duck meat has a smokey but sweet taste that will knock your socks off with!
This beautifully smoked duck is the last of my cookout week recipes. This time I used duck breast from Maple Leaf Farms to create this smoky sweet succulent duck.
Maple Leaf Farms
I received from one the sponsors of Cookout Week, Maple Leaf Farms some beautiful cuts of duck meat. I admit I have never worked with duck before, but I have a friend who loves duck meat. She helped me with the development of this smoked duck recipe.
Maple leaf Farms has been in business for over 60 years. It produces quality duck products. Maple Leaf farms with care. Their ducks are from the local farm raised and follow animal well-being guidelines.
Smoked Orange Rosemary Duck
The friend who helped me develop this Smoked Orange Rosemary Duck is from Poland originally. In Poland, duck is common dark meat. So to get her feedback and ideas on what recipe to make with duck, I knew I get a winning recipe.
We decided to smoke this duck on a grill with a product called Smokin O’s. They are these wood rings you can put on a grill and turn the grill into a wood smoker.
To really smoke the citrus flavor into the duck breast, decided to use a heatproof dish so that the juices can get smoked right into the duck meat.
If we just put the duck breasts on the grill, you could lose that citrus taste. So why we decided to use the heatproof baking dish on the grill so we can smoke that wonderful orange rosemary flavors right into smoked duck recipe.
My friend suggested we add some apple to help balance out the citrus with the smoke. Apple enhances that smoky taste we were going for in this cookout recipe.

When this duck recipe came off the grill, it was so delicious. The orange and rosemary just made this smoked duck burst with flavor. It was a great way to enjoy duck meat recipe.

InstructionsSeason the duck meat and potatoes with the garlic, lemon pepper, and Vegeta seasonings. Juice one of the oranges and set aside the juice. Slice the other orange. In a heatproof baking dish place the duck breasts and potatoes inside of it. Pour the orange juice around the duck. Add the rosemary sprigs on to the duck. Add the apple slices. Top with the orange slices. Set your grill to medium-high heat and follow the directions on using the Smokin O's for your grill. Place the baking dish on the grill and close it.

There are tube smokers you can get if you don't want to use the Smokin O's they are a mesh tube that you throw on the grill with wood pellets.
