I found this was a great recipe to start from. I made my first duck last night, and it was so tender! The changes I made: I sprinkled the duck inside and out with Chinese 5-spice powder and kosher salt. For the sauce, I used orange juice instead of water, the honey, dried orange peel and 6TB unsalted butter. I also added a bit of Grand Marnier to taste--Mmmm! For a 6lb. duck, I roasted breast side up, covered, 375 for 1/2 hr, then 300 for 20 min/lb. with the last 20 min. uncovered. I took it out of the oven, poured off the grease and let it sit for 15 minutes.
