Maybe we can make a profit by harvesting/exporting Canada geese. Just tell them they're fat ducks.

Why a duck?

That!

Roast ducks in the windows were a staple at the Hmong stores when I lived in Fresno. The exposure to that culture was one of the very few things I enjoyed about that place.

Had place around where I use to live that had mandarin duck and some really good bbq pork over rice. All it was was a small market with lots of hanging pork, ducks and other things which looked absolutely delicious. Food was pretty good however, sometimes you did get sick from it (stomach aches and such). I don't think any meat like that should be cured that way, but that was me. The owner ate this stuff over a long period of time pretty much all the time, so he never got those stomach issues.

I believe the sickness was just regional. Few of my Thai friends did things like this all the time when they lived on the outskirts of Bangkok (hanging things to cure outside or in windows). When they came to the US and tried that here, a lot of nasty sicknesses started happening to them and they got sick A LOT from these practices.

This museum concept narrowly beat out the second place finisher...fire drills.

I've always wanted to try one of those roast ducks in the window.
Then I wonder just how long it's been hanging there.  Now I have the answer.

I can't imagine there is much to say about roast duck.

This place was my favorite dive Chinese on Canal Street. Great window duck and the pork lo mein is awesome. From the look of the inside I think they were paying off the health inspector. Didnt care.

Window duck and ceiling cat probably have similar voyeuristic interests.

Yep. That's the ticket. When I was teaching English in Taiwan, Monday was my busiest day, so I treated myself with duck for lunch that looked like and was as delicious as your pic indicates.

Haven't been to Cache Creek in years. When it opened, my Asian of course friends went there a lot, and took me along.

It's usually cooked daily-- at least the good places are.  Once they're sold out of roast duck, they're sold out.  If you ever find yourself in Oakland, CA, shoot me a message.  I'll take you to some great Cantonese BBQ places.  Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Miagi is Japanese.  Chinese is a totally different culture/ethnicity.   Go educate yourself before demonstrating what a seriously tiny bigoted mind you have on a public forum.

Yes, but roast duck isn't one of them.  As the Duck Dynasty brothers state:  "Duck is the filet mignon of the bird variety".

I put duck in my smoker.  Can do four at a time, and I use beechwood,

Now I'm all hungry.

Had some duck during my trip to Beijing a few years ago.  While some of the food i had there didn't appeal to me, that duck was seriously tasty.  Sadly, the local Chinese places can't seem to replicate the same taste and texture.

Eat the farking duck. Get the pork, too. I regret any hesitation I ever had in the matter.

Their whole dang country is Chinatown. ( I wonder if they have a round eye town?)

It's not something that your average Zhang can just do.

Takes years of practice, and the right oven, at the least.

Bucket Tea! I love Sun Say Kai, and anything there with crispy pork or duck (or both) is awesome and ridiculously cheap. But they do bring the tea up from the basement in buckets, thus our affectionate nickname. I'm pretty sure it is ok though, since it is served at solar plasma temperature. The waiter serves it to you  holding 4 full glasses of tea per hand, then you pick it up and your skin sublimates.
