4 cloves garlic, smashed
1 shallot, minced
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 tablespoons whole pepper corns
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

1. In large bowl add all ingredients, mix until blended.

2. Add ducks to ziplock bag and add beer brine

3. Let rest in fridge for 6-8 hours

4. Remove from beer brine, break cinnamon sticks and place inside cavity along with one orange wedge.
