    Maybe think of it as smoking a whole pig.. there were a few threads about that just a few days ago.. look in the Pork threads.

    Well, I lit one's tail on fire once... it smoked well! <Just kidding>. I got no clue... but someone here will. Stop into Roll Call forum and intro yourself, folks are more responsive to a new member of the family after introductions :{).

    Good heavens there's a new one! Ain't never smoked no goat! I'm guessin ya would do it like venison, cause it's gonna loose it's skin and just be meat unlike a whole pig. So maybe check out the wild game section and see if anything there looks like a match. Good luck, yer gonna need it!

    I have probably cooked about as much goat as anyone. I have fed goat to several hundred people numerous times. Some of them were important, or at least thought they were. I have cooked it several different ways. I will be cooking about 6 next weekend along with a case of briskets for a wedding party. I moisten it with Worcestershire, season it with a seasoning that I mix and cook it about 225*. Sometimes I cook it for a few hours and then foil for a few more. I have cooked goat on everything from an army cot, to buried underground, to a $25,000 Ol Hickory. If I choose to baste it, I use oil, lemon juice, and beer.

    Try bbq meatballs from goat for 400, or goatburger steaks and brown gravy for 100. Goat kabobs for 300. Fried goat for 100+. Picadillo with goat for 350. I have cooked some goat.

    If I can help, just ask and I will try to guide you along.
