  3. Pluck any visible feathers.
  4. Add all marinade ingredients to a two gallon ziplock bag, seal, and shake to mix well.
  5. Add duck and any inner parts (not everyone likes/ wants innards) to ziplock bag.
  6. Marinate for as close to 24 hours as possible.
  7. Take the duck out of the marinade and stuff with the available fruit from the bag.
  8. Place the duck on a roasting rack inside of a roasting pan.

  10. Rub all sides of the duck with the rub mix.
