Goat to me is much less gamier than lamb. The meat is much more succulent and actually depending on where you buy it from is more expensive than lamb.

The best cut of meats (strictly my opinion) with goat and lamb are as follows:

Leg - You can marinate the entire goat leg or lamb leg with a marinade of your choice, I like a marinade with aromatic spices (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, garlic, corrainder, cumin, red chilli powder, paprika, saffron) and yogurt overnight and then bake it in the oven.

Shanks - I prepare them similarly to the leg. I also sometimes ask the butcher to chop mine into chunks and I either make a stew with it - I like to add whole baby onions, baby potatoes and cook it in my pressure cooker so it's done in no time.

Ground Lamb or Goat - Expensive but great to make sheekh kababs if you like Indian food or meatball curry. You season the ground meat with ginger and garlic (minced) add freshly chopped mint, cilantro, spices of your choice and skewer them and grill.

Chops - I like it grilled and also fpan fried. Yes the fried ones are to die for. We like to marinate it with ginger for several hours and then coat it in some seasoned chick pea flour and then pan fry it until crispy and done. It is a great appetizer. Not cheap but very good.

Actually, since I've always enjoyed lamb, I've always wanted to try goat kid, but since my husband doesn't eat red meat, have never had the chance.

When we were on our honeymoon in St. Lucia, there were several restaurants who advertised Goat Curry, but unfortunately they were farther away than we wanted to travel at night (St. Lucia was just BARELY developed for the tourist trade back then, & long nighttime sojourns from ones hotel were discouraged).

However, I do have a wonderful organic/free-range farm right around the corner from me that raise organic/free-range bison, chickens, eggs, turkeys, rabbit, pork, AND goat, & sell various cuts from their own on-farm butcher shop.

I'm thinking that perhaps I'll spring for some goat cuts for myself & just cook hubby poultry using the same basic preps/veggies I use for the goat.

I never see goat around here. The only place I have seen it is in a supermarket in Aruba. I've always been tempted to buy some but SO is not as adventurous as I.

Here's the website for the place down the road from me. They do sell/ship via internet, & I can tell you from many personal visits over the years that their products are raised exactly as they say they are.

I like jerk goat. You season the goat with a jerk seasoning rub and then slow cook it the way you would pulled pork bbq. It's really good in a smoker. I like lamb anyway I can get it.

The first thing that comes to mind is ShisKebab(sp) and roasted leg of lamb.

P.S. The shish kebab I'm talking about is not made of ground meat, I never seen it made from ground meat untill I came to America.

English is full of double entendres, especially if you're less than pure of heart and mind, like some of us.
