We made this for a holiday dinner several years ago and it turned out really well.
1t black pepper
1 5lb whole duck
1/2c melted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rub spices into skin and place in roasting pan.
Roast duck for 1 hour. Spoon 1/4c melted butter over bird then cook for another 45 minutes. Spoon remaining 1/4c butter over the duck and cook for another 15 minutes until golden brown.
