Comments: Many of you cook your ducks whole, so here's a spirited recipe for your next barbecued or oven-roasted duck.

As an option, you may want to cut off the legs and roast them in sauce for a few hours to make them tender (covered, 450 degrees).

If you want to save some of the Jack Daniel's for drinking, you can forego the marinade and baste the birds with sauce while cooking, but thin the basting sauce out with some orange juice or it will burn and look ugly.
