Lightly baste both sides of duck with sauce (reserve remaining sauce).
Place in a hinged wire broiler and close securely (or place on lightly greased grill); place 4 to 6 inches above a solid bed of medium-glowing coals.
Cook, turning and basting often with reserved sauce, for 7 to 10 minutes on each side or until done to your liking.
Divide each duck again at breast bone into 2 portions and serve.
