What to do with a goat?
A freind of mines parents have a little farm, and raised a few goats. Tomorrow we are gonna slaughter a younger one, and have a end of harvest party on Sunday. I have been issued the task of cooking the goat after we are done the butchering, and making goat scrapple (really good $h!t I must say, after some pork fat is added) and other offal yummyness. They said I will be givin the whole body, minus a few bits, head and all. I was thinking spit roasting, but am not sure. They have a hearth oven outside, but am not sure its big enough, and would like to keep the animal intact as much as possible.
So... I have never cooked a whole goat before, pig yes, goat no. Any suggestions? These we simple people, oth simple tastes. As much as I hate the word, as to me it's just another way to say lazy, I would like to keep it as Rustic as possible.
There are a couple recipes for spit roasted goat out there that look pretty good. Here's one: goat
Oh man I love slow barbequed goat. Think Brazil gaucho style.
I've had Ethiopian Zil Zil made with goat that was out of this world. Unforgettable even.
Jamaican jerked goat! ESP if you have real pimento <sp> wood to smoke it with.
it doesn't work for a whole goat, but an Andhra-style goat curry is amazing! One of our forum members recently tried some a friend of mine made...I'll let him speak for himself though.
FUnny this topic came up. I won't hijack you, I'll post my own, but I'm interested in goat as well.
In this istance, spit roasting would be the way I go as well, with the garlic and rosemary treatment, holes poked in the skin and herbs stuffed/studded inside.
Here in Fort Worth, Time Loves Woodshed restaurant fixes goat all the time. They have a flag with a goat on it that they fly when it is the meat of the day. Now I got a hankering for some goat tacos...
