Ahhhh, my favorite time of year is here. It’s officially Fall. The temp is dropping, soon the leaves will be too after that magnificent color change. All of this revelry in the season got me thinking of some sort of fall themed recipe. It took some doing but I finally came up with the Grilled Mallard Duck.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
