Default Spatchcock a duck?

Have any spatchcocked and grilled a duck? Are there any special steps,
particularly to deal with the fat rendering? I have a small 4lb duck to
grill. I occasionally grill duck indirectly at a medium temp to render all
the fat into a drip pan. Generally we rotisserue a duck indoors on the
Farberware, an excellent way. The fat is great for cassoulet.
Any thoughts or hints?
TIA,

Kent

It'll work. You might want to use a slightly lower the temp
(than say, chicken) to give it extra time for all that
rendering. Be prepared for a boatload of fat to come off.

I've done it successfully with goose too, though it's not
something I'd ever do again.

Also, I found that no skin cuts are required for spatchcocked
duck/goose. It was not good actually, the skin ended up falling
apart.
