Duck Pastrami Cure

½ cup ground black pepper

½ cup ground coriander

3 cups salt

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup ground juniper

3 tbsp pink salt

2 tbsp ground clove

2 tbsp garlic powder


Mix and combine.  Store in airtight container, label and date.


Using the “duck pastrami cure” liberally season the duck breast and place them on a wire rack on a sheet tray.  Allow to cure for 5-7 days.  After 5-7 days take the “duck rub” and heavily coat the entire duck breast.


Duck Rub

2 cups fresh cracked black pepper

2 cups medium ground coriander

Smoke the duck breast at 220 degrees for 1 hour or until a probe thermometer reads 145 degrees. Remove from smoker and chill in cooler on a speed rack.  Once fully chilled wrap individually and freeze until needed.
