I grew up on a goat farm and I currently have goat in my freezer. The thing you have to be careful of when cooking goat is that it is usually very, very low in fat (although some of the "boer"breed goats can be more fatty). If you are doing goat burgers, I recommend adding some egg..or eggwhite in it before cooking so that it doesn't crumble. Another thing to try is if you get stew meat or chops, marinate in italian dressing overnight before cooking. Very yummy!
Goat is a common meat where I live, especially this time of year. I have eaten soooo much of it! But I'm not a huge fan, as cooking it tends to make the whole house smell like goat for 2 days! I once ate goat every day for a month (not by choice lol). It is decently lean.
I've only been able to get goat once, and we made a stew. I'll bet the burgers will be wonderful. Enjoy

I've had curried goat before. My brother's girlfriend makes it sometimes, and I see it on the menu at the Jamaican restraunt, but I usually go for the Jerk Pork.
The goat's good, though!

Has anyone else tried goats meat? I was at a farmer's market yesterday and bought some goat burgers. The man selling them had made them the night before and said how nutritious they are, made with just lean goat's meat, onions and spices. I couldn't find goatburgers when I tried to track it so just put in 4 oz goat (which came up as curry goat!) but it came up good on the tracker - not much fat, loads of protein, iron, zinc and useful stuff. I'd never tried goat before, but will try it again - maybe as real goat curry!
