My mother and I madempeking duck when I was a kid. The first instruction said to hang a duck before a fan for 24 hours. This forms a pellicle and dries the subcutaneous fat to get that crispiness. Our laundry room looked a little weird for that day!
We hang ours but hadn't thot of the fan. Awesome. Will try it! Thanks for the speedy response.
