Challenge is this recipe. I wonder if I should risk it and try. Whether you become a chicken?

What exactly bothers you the recipe?

It bothers me just *hanging* of the duck. Shall provide adequate time - not too hot, as to vmirishe overnight and place - not to be seen, who knows what will the neighbors think: -))) (this last is a joke, it is not me bother). All in preparation time before baking is the secret and it just bothers me. I have read that and then plastered with honey mixture is nice to stand again hung in a ventilated area.
