If you want to grill goat meat, you need to have the right ingredients and utensils. This includes a resealable plastic bag for marinading, a refrigerator for storing the meat, a grill, seasoning, aluminum foil, meat thermometer, basting brush, forceps, and knife. And of course, you’ll need goat meat. We recommend bone-in goat meat. Here’s five ways to put it all together:
1. Barbecued Goat
The best way to prepare grilled goat meat is by barbecuing it. You will need a grill to do this, along with charcoal. Light the charcoal on fire and place the goat meat on the grill. Roast it until it’s ready to eat. After cooking it, apply barbecue sauce.
You can buy a can of barbecue sauce from the store or you can make your own. There are several recipes online that you can use. Most of them include the following ingredients: ketchup, vinegar, lemon juice, pepper, and brown sugar.
Before roasting, prepare a barbecue rub, and apply it to the meat. The rub consists of herbs and spices. Let the meat sit for 30 minutes to an hour while the rub soaks in. Then, place it on the grill. The grilled goat meat will taste much better with a delicious rub.
2. Grilled Goat Chops with Marinade
Of all the cuts of meat available, chops are probably the most popular. The best way to prepare goat chops is by marinading it. There are two benefits of using a marinade; it tenderizes the meat, and it flavors it. It’s the perfect cooking method for grilled goat meat.
Prepare a marinade bath in a bowl and soak the meat in it. There are several types of marinade that you can use on goat meat. An enzymatic marinade, such as papaya and pineapple, breaks down collagen proteins and makes the meat more juicy. This type of marinade should only be used for 30 minutes. If the meat is soaked any longer, it will not be palatable.
Acidic marinades, such as citric acid, can be used longer. Soak the meat for two hours before cooking. Calcium marinades, such as yogurt, are long-lasting marinades. The meat can be left overnight in the refrigerator soaking in a yogurt marinade. Another marinade that you can use with grilled goat meat is red wine. After marinading, you can grill it.
3. Butterflied Leg
Another coveted portion of the goat is the leg. One way to prepare it is called butterfly. This involves cutting the meat away from the bone with a knife. The goal is to remove the bone from the meat. Cut along the bone and around it, severing all the connections between the meat and the bone. When the bone is free, remove it. A slab of meat should be left on the plate. Transfer it over to the grill, and roast it until it’s cooked. Your diner guests will remember this grilled goat meat preparation for a while.
4. Grilling on a Rotisserie
You can prepare goat meat on a rotisserie. This is a much slower process than roasting on a grill. It has some advantages. The main one is evenly distributed weight. The meat will have an artistic appearance. Cooking on a rotisserie utilizes dry heat.
5. Medium Rare, Medium, and Well Done
Regardless of the cut of meat, your dining party will want it cooked a certain way. There are three options: Medium Rare, Medium, and Well Done. These are different intensities of cooking. Medium Rare is a consistency that is prepared at 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Medium is prepared at 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and Well Done is prepared at 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Choose your grilled goat meat consistency wisely.
