Merrill roasts it straight in the pan, but I don't see why you couldn't do it on a rack.

Thanks so much! I want to make sure I get some duck fat to roast some par boiled potatoes during that last 30 minutes!

Yes, a rack should work just fine!

Don't be shy about turning up the final crisping of the skin. That's best part IMHO.

You have to have the "Mallard" reaction to get a crispy skin.
