Q: This last weekend I had a goat butchered for the first time, and I am excited about trying new recipes. I had always raised goats for fiber before, and just had chickens for meat with the occasional beef. So this is a new experience.
I had it cut and packaged in a variety pack way. Shoulder with bone and without, leg with bone and without, some ground and so on. I have a lot of meat cuts to choose from. What are some goat meat tips and ideas?

Editor: Liz, oh that sounds wonderful. Goat is one of our favorite sorts of meat right now. It is less gamey-tasting than lamb, but it has a richness that really satisfies the palate. Here are some past posts and recipes; check out the goat tacos!
