    Steps

    • 1

      Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
    • 2

      Remove skin from duck/goose breast if any, trim excess fat and place in the freezer for one hour. This will make slicing much easier.
    • 3

      Slice duck/goose breast into 1/4 inch strips using a very sharp knife.
    • 4

      In a large bowl, combine meat and marinade making sure it is completely submerged. Place in fridge for 24 hours.
    • 5

      Remove the meat from marinade and place strips on paper towels, letting them sit for 15 minutes to allow some of the marinade to drain off.
    • 6

      When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 180°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

    • 7

      Sprinkle meat with black pepper or crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
    • 8

      Lay slices in an even layer over grill grate and smoke for 2-1/2 to 3 hours checking every thirty minutes after that until the meat no longer feels soft. You want it to still bend in half, not snap.
