Smoked Watermelon That Looks Sliced Smoked Meat

Ducks Eatery in New York City has brilliantly created a truly unique way to serve watermelon. They first strip the fruit of all its rind and skin, marinate it in the same preparations used for their smoked ham and smoked it until it has the look, smell and feel of real smoked meat, even when being sliced.

We process the melon similar to how we prepare our hams, but it is 100% melon (and vegetarian!).

While the watermelon is new, Ducks has been serving smoked cantaloupe burgers for quite a while.

Can’t convince your friends to go in on a Watermelon Ham with you? Try our original smoked melon dish, the Cantaloupe Burger!
