I am going to be making duck sausage for the first time. Every recipe I come across uses duck meat and pork fat instead of the duck fat. This seems to me like an "adulterated" product.
While researching this question, a one person said that the duck fat would melt out of a sausage faster than the pork would. Does anyone have some input on this? Kenji?
This is a classic French recipe of poached eggs over toasted baguette sauced with reduced wine, bacon, caramelized pearl onions, and sauteed mushrooms.

My friend flew in from Sacramento tonight. Along with all kinds of game meat and birds, he brought me a couple of pieces of what he calls pepperwood to use for smoking. We are doing this whole hog on Saturday the 3rd and would have normally used a mix of charcoal and hickory.
I think this is what I am talking about.

Has anyone seen this show? If so where? I just stumbled across it on HULU and watched a few episodes. The one with Rocco DiSpirito was annoying as he is kind of a dou%#@. Other episodes have been very cool. The one at Commanders Palace had an interesting convo on corkage fees. Check it out.
