My duck legs are about a pound each, twice the size of the ones suggested in the recipe. Should I increase the oven cooking time? Recipe recommends 2 hours covered, one uncovered.

No, they'll have plenty of confiting time in the oven, but do note the recipe's recommendation in step 1 to adjust the spices by weight and give them a bit of extra curing time if you can.
Thanks, I made it yesterday and it came out fantastic. I did indeed increase the amount of spices and curing time.
Great! So glad you liked them.
