I tried something new this weekend. With the advice and help from Mick, it turned out awesome!
I smoked 4 quarters of a goat. I cut the ribs off and used them for the racks in the pans. I made a white wine baste for them to steam in. I basted them about every hour.
I smoked them for 6 hrs at 225 then foiled for two more hours. When I opened them up they were falling off the bone.
I have read so much about goat that I wanted to try it. As far as the smoking, it was nothing short of perfection with about a good 1/4 smoke ring. Super moist and very tender. As far as flavor.... much like venison, it wasn't to my liking. I love canned venison, but not so much smoked.
I did this for a good friend. She loved it. Thats really all that matters. She gave me a goat for smoking her's. I will be cutting it up and canning it, with a little beef fat in the cans. It won't go to waste.
As they say, you don't know till you try.
I hope everyone has a great week-end
The finished product had been sitting in the frig for a bit before I remembered to take the picture. This was a farm raised goat feed grass and non gmo feeds. They had quite a bit of fat on them.
