    Re: Mountain Goat Meat

    Goat meat overall is great but quite tough with the exception being rut goats. Nov rut goats, as stated above, are so unpalatable in most dishes it isn’t funny. I’ve found I do almost all of my goat meat into curry of some sort. The slow cooking tenderizes it and the spices neutralize (or mask) even the stinkiest rutting goats.

    I have only harvested 1 goat. It has good flavour but is tough. Definitely a meat that I best in a slow cooker or stew.

    Best I’ve eaten was a camp cook/chef that soaked the goat meat in seasoning salt/sea salt/warm water, then rinsed well and slow cooked it. Was tender and tasty beyond my expectations.

    Somewhat Chewy the bigger Billy's, especially when your roasting it fresh over the fire same day as harvest.....

    Chops are good, roasts are good, slower cooking methods are best to help tenderize. It's not deer, not beef, nor moose, it's goat so unique in its flavor. Other than roast or chops on bigger cuts we sausage it into different types.

    Goat hunts are special, at times down right scary and not worth loosing your life over. That said they are some of my best hunting experiences, successful or not.

    Do it while you can.

    Re: Mountain Goat Meat

    I find it mild tasting and very similar to bison meat. But it's tough and chewy for sure. Slow-cooker stew/curries as others have said is amazing, ground goat burger is great, I would imagine sausages would be great too. Just don't expect to eat and enjoy tender steaks prepared using conventional methods.
