Hey Robin - the duck meat will be super moist and succulent, and you'll get maximum fat in the pan to save for another use (like roasted potatoes, OMG!) if you take a corn cob holder and pierced the skin. I don't pierce hard enough to hit flesh. And I do a lot of pokes. Like a lot! I do a nice pattern of straight lines and I make the lines about 1/4 inch apart. This works great on goose too (and talk about goose fat...heaven)
