Bone-in Goat Shoulder on the grill - Where to begin?

  • 1

On a whim, I just picked up a 4.4lb bone-in goat shoulder (Marin sun farms). This will be my very first foray into preparing goat at home. My idea was to cook it low and slow on a charcoal grill with some mesquite chips, roast some chiles towards the end and roll in flour tortillas for bbq goat tacos.

So - a couple of questions.

1) How long would it take to cook this size of goat shoulder to optimum tenderness?
2) Does goat need to be marinated or can I just do a dry rub and throw it on the grill?
3) Any advice on grill temperature?

Would love to hear from some more experienced goat grillmasters!

  1. barbacoa, traditionally pit cooked goat, lamb or cows head, comes to mind.
