- Place duck in a roasting pan with lid.
- In a mixing bowl heat sweet vermouth for 30-45 seconds in the microwave, just warm enough to dissolve sugar. Mix in sugar and garlic powder.
- Using a marinating syringe saturate duck with the liquid mixture. Sometimes it can be easiest to pour last of marinade in a glass to draw into syringe. If you want to add the tarragon, rub it on now.
- Mix rub ingredients and rub down the duck.
- Place in a preheated oven at 350°F. You know your own oven - some of you will adjust that to 375°F I like 350°F. You will cook it around two hours and ten to fifteen minutes. I prefer to cook the first 30 minutes uncovered to let alcohol escape; however it is not required. You will have a sweet duck. Happy Thanksgiving!
