      There are a lot of twisted minds on this site. Puns, especially bad ones, are a favorite manifestation.

      Good one. haha I didn't catch it. ­čśé

    Yes I have cooked up a few cabritos. Let's clarify what you are saying by "Suckling goat" which means a young goat still on the teet. For me a suckling goat still on the teet would be tiny and have pretty much no meat on it. You would want a goat 6-12 months old, not a suckling.
    Grill the goat over live fire and go easy on the smoke. Rosemary/fennel/garlic and salt. Delicious.

      I definitely will!

    I was able to get 'young goat' ribs and tenderloin over the weekend (males / 6 months).
    Never smoked goat ribs before so I tried a "3-2-1" based method...

    I used a simple (and not too much) rub of salt, black pepper, garlic, cumin and chili.

    Total cooking time was about 4hrs / 190-195F internal:

    - 1.5h - sprayed each 20mins or so (50/50 apple cider vinegar / coke zero)
    - 1.5h - wrapped in foil with some salt-free butter
    - 1.0h - light glaze (50/50 bbq sauce / apple cider vinegar)

    The tenderloins are a different story...had them many times before...and as always Indonesian style sate only for these parts..."Sate Kambing". I pretty much follow the recipe of Lonny Gerungan with a personal touch...just search for "Lonny" + "Kambing" to get the base recipe.

    The ribs were excellent...I might give it 30-45mins more in "phase I" the next time...even the young ones are pretty tough

    The sate kambing was, as always, amazing...def. one of my favourites...

    Happy Smoking!

      Meaty and fatty looking ribs. Just what you want.

    No but if you want to expand on your suckling pig experiences in another post it would be welcomed with open arms!

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
