Goat Shoulder Smoking
« on: April 07, 2019, 09:58:06 am »
Going to smoke goat shoulder. I think this piece is a 5 pounder. It is a young goat raised by my buddy.
Going to smoke for 3 hours and then wrap. Had hard time finding recipe. Using a game rub. Will spritz with some juice I have every 30-60 mins. Posting here because couldn’t find anything on smoking a goat shoulder.  Will update along the way and add photos if I can figure out how to do the photos.

Hi Ketan;

Welcome to the forum.

Your post sounds interesting. Let us know how you prepared it, and smoke/roasted it. On this forum you may find some recipes if you do a search for "cabrito".

So far smoked for 3 hours. Used the cherry biscuits. Now it’s wrapped in foil with few spritzes of juice.  Now 3 hours of slow cooking in the smoker. I have a 4 tray Smoker. Says Jim Beam on the door. Temp has been 220.

Hello Ketan.
Welcome to the forum.
This sounds like a real interesting smoke you are doing.
Sure will be interesting to hear how it went.

Okay. 3 hours smoked. 3 hours wrapped. And then 30 mins of resting. It was very tasty. I think another 1 hour of cooking would’ve helped. Meat was juicy and tender. I got more goat to cook and will post as I do that. I took pics. But can’t figure out how to post them.

It great when you have a successful smoke.

As far as posting pictures, I haven't done that in a while since Photobucket began charging for that. Someone will be along to explain it in more detail. You will need to find a third party site that will host your photos, then you can linked them into your posts.

Yours went fast!    I smoked a hind qtr and it took almost 12 hrs total. 

Goat has a lot of silver skin in between the muscles and that takes awhile to break down, but I never wrap mine so that would have helped a lot

If anyone has never tried goat you need to good stuff.   To me the texture is like beef yet the flavor of pork (if using a young goat) old goats to me ain't worth the effort

Did either of you put bacon on the top for more juices?

I did on one of the hind qt's   It adds flavor but I removed the bacon about half way because it was keeping the temp down.    Found it better both bark and cooking time without bacon (crazy I know)
