    I have got about a 3lb goat roast. I have no experience with goat and am going to Q it this weekend. Its a rib roast. My question is should ICook this thing like I would Prime Rib and cook to like 140* or should I let it go clear on up to like 185* to slice or even 195* to slice? I figure I know it will be good at a medium - medium rare at 140*, but am not sure about the higher temps? It is decently marbeled.

    Thanks for any advice...

    May I suggest you google Cabrito recipes, that will give you some ideas at least on method and alternatives. Cabrito is normally made with Kid, so not sure what you have as far as age is concerned.

    Naaaaahhhhh, I would think it would be great to treat it like a beef rib roast----140˚, but I never did it myself. There must be someone on this forum who did it.

    This smoke is happening tommorrow RAIN OR SHINE so give a brother some help!!!!. I am leaning towards keeping it on the med-rare side, but not leaning that way by much. I am still really split on if I should take it to high butt or brisket like temps or keep it lower like prime rib.

    Lets here what you think!!

    I would treat it like lamb, rare at 135' and slice.
