I would prefer hardwood over charcoal if possible. Duck is very fatty with all that dark meat so I do not think you need to mop it in a sauce. A nice dry rub is what I would go for.
Low and slow is the way to go keep your heat around 225F

I agree with brew-boy up to a point. I like to baste it with red wine. I've used Zinfindel and Merlot with good results. Haven't had one in a long time.

With all of the fat, make sure you have a good drip pan. Wrapping it in cheesecloth for the first half of the cooking time, and then flipping it breast-side down for the last couple of hours doesn't hurt, either.

I did a dry rub, with an apple wood smoke. I was wondering how long it would take to get a rolling paper comment. I'll keep you updated.
