A question about a recipe: Slow Roast Duck

8653a98f 7c27 4d7e 8ac7 f11cb525fcf9  5337480747 a8cebf7000 o

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Slow Roast Duck" from merrill. It says:

"Cook the duck, removing it every half hour or so and re-piercing the skin so that the fat can escape. After 2 hours, flip the duck onto its back, piercing the fat over the breast well. After about 3 hours, the duck should start to look crisp and lightly browned."

Is the total cook time 5 hours or 3 hours? The third sentence is ambiguous.

Three hours. At least that's how I've done it. But for this recipe, it would also be delicious at 5 hours. And at 3, it might need a brief rise in heat to get it really brown.

Concur: Total cooking time is three hours, and worth the wait!

I think it's 3 hours at 250F and then another 30 minutes or so at 350F...and then let it rest another ten.
