What temperature do you cook duck breast to?

How do you grill duck breast on a charcoal grill?
To grill duck breast on a charcoal grill, create a “two zone fire.” Place all of the charcoals evenly on one half of the grill and cook the duck breast over indirect heat on the other half of the grill with the lid closed. Cook skin side down until the skin is thin, golden and crispy (about 5 to 10 minutes).
