1 lb. ground duck (@ 4 breasts)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. salt

4 oz. Shredded pepperjack cheese

  1. In a large bowl, gently mix together meat, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and shredded cheese.
  2. Divide the mixture into 4 sections and form 4 even patties
  3. Place burger patties on smoker preheated to 425°F/220°C and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Flip patties and cook 2-3 minutes longer. At this time, lightly toast the buns on the smoker and add cheese slices to your burgers. Duck is lean, so do not overcook and instead stick with rare or medium-rare finish on your patties.
