OT: What's for supper

I slaughtered a goat Sunday and goat has been on the menu all this week. Sunday we had the tenderloin cubed and fried and liver and lights, goat burger Monday. The rest of the carcass was boiled and cooked with pinto beans last night, tonight a pound of okra was added to the beans and broth. To make it somewhat on topic it was stirred with a wooden spoon.
Goat is under appreciated in North America it has less calories, saturated fat and cholesterol than chicken and I can't tell it from beef.
Anyone dealing with heart and cholesterol issues would be wise to eat goat.

I've never had goat. It's not commonly available in western Canada, but I'm sure I could find it if I went looking.
I'm not sure I believe "can't tell it from beef", though...

The difference in ground beef and ground goat is slight, has a more ground round taste rather than ground beef taste. It is much milder in flavor than lamb.
Even here in the South where it is not uncommon to see chicken feet and pig snouts(no kidding) in the grocery store, goat is not commercially available, but there are online outlets, for goat.

Hey, I like chicken feet. There's a dim sum place nearby that do them up really well. Haven't had pig snout, but wouldn't turn my nose up at it...
There is a major supermarket nearby that does carry halal food. I haven't been there in a long time (hate their pricing policies, they're a warehouse club -- Only $0.79 each if you buy 356! Otherwise $2.59,) but I recall they did carry goat in the "trapped in the 1300s" section.

"Cabrito" here in Texas, or "Chevon" in S. Louisiana ... damn good stuff.
Lots of it here in Texas, but getting hard to get a hold of since the demand is so high.

I've got about 6 more to kill this year, most will be ground up and will be enough to supply us for the year.
A lot of people kill the males as soon as they are born and bbq them whole, but I can't kill a newborn,(I'm an old softie) so I let them get older and will eat the tenderest parts and grind the rest.
Due to the influx of Mexicans the price of goats has doubled in the last few years.

probably have one in my yard.
My dad got a couple when I was young. They cleaned up the brier patches, stripped the bark off young chinaberry trees and ate it, ate the tops out of small pine trees and prospered. When they started eating the tractor tires they had to go.

It's only the rams (uncut males) that stink. Wethers (neutered males) and nannies smell like wool sweaters.
