Cooking Directions

BBQ Sauce:
Step 1 - Make the ketchup. Combine tomato paste, lemon juice, dry mustard, water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.

Step 2 - In a small sauce pan, combine 4 tablespoons ketchup with fresh ginger, coconut aminos, pineapple juice, honey, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt + pepper (to taste). Simmer mix for 10 minutes.

MEATBALLS:
Step 1 -
 Hand grind DUCKCHAR Moulard Duck Breast. Chill duck in freezer for five minutes. Remove and grind with a sharp blade. First, cut into thin slices short ways. Then cut again long ways. Chop until coarsely ground - no need to overdo it. The meat will reach an even better consistency as it cooks.

Step 2 - In a large bowl, combine ground duck with egg, paprika, garlic powder, grated onion, salt, and pepper.

Step 3 - Form ground duck mix into golf ball-sized meatballs. Set pellet smoker to 450 and cook for about 15 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees F.

Step 4 - Cook Pineapple in skillet for a few minutes on pellet grill. Then add meatballs and homemade BBQ sauce (to taste) to pineapple and cook for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh lime juice, diced jalapenos, and parsley.
