Some Goat Chops, water, salt, garlic, mint leaves, set to Low, come back in 6 hours.

Paul, good call as Goat is very lean.
I don't mind if the meat is a tad dry as I add some oil to the stir fry, hence it does moisten up the meat somewhat.

Still new to the meat scene, maybe next time, I'll add oil during the cooking process.

I'm putting my new grill / smoker together today, next time I cook Goat, it will be smoked on the grill, BBQ style.

Really pretty good. Just a tad dry as the meat is so lean. Next time I'll add some Olive Oil. I liked the Slow Cook method a little better then Pressure Cooker, but both worked good.

I just put my new grill/smoker together this weekend, next up will be slow cooked Goat BBQ style. Even though we're talking 3-5 hours of slow cook time, the thoughts of smearing the meat in a great BBQ sauce is sounding pretty good.

I'll keep you posted, but a grill, pressure cooker, slow cooker make very worthwhile investments.

Thanks for asking.

Re: Goat Chops-it's what's for Dinner, or Lunch, or Breakfast....

Well, I appreciate you sharing your culinary exploits here on the board.
I think I can safely that your forays into the world of REAL, good food are an inspiration to many of us.

I put my own slow cooker to good use a few days ago, making pork BBQ.
It didn't have the smoky flavor of true BBQ, but it was pretty darn good, I must say!
I made about 8 pounds of it, so I am still eating it for lunches.
My favorite way to eat it is to quarter a fresh bell pepper and just fill up the pieces with meat. So good.

I'm curious to know what you will use for sauce.
I found an "organic" BBQ sauce at the store but it wasn't really to my taste, and all the usual sauces are chock full of HFCS.

Sean, thanks for the kind words. The Pulled Pork sounds pretty good. You might want to try some of the liquid smoke that's available. I know Wal Mart stocks it, along with other grocery stores. It will give you a mock smoke flavor, but it's not bad. I toss a few drops on some of my stir fries.

Not sure how or what I'm going to you use for my BBQ sauce, but I know that I'll be making my own. Sounds like the basic ingredients are pretty simple, and you're spot on about NO HFCS. Here is a quick Google search on some components of making a BBQ.

The easiest BBQ sauce can be prepared very quickly. You will need 2 cups of your favorite ketchup, 2 chopped onions, ľ cup of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, ľ cup of brown sugar, and chili powder to taste. Sautee the onions and then add the remainder of the ingredients. Cook on low heat for around 15 minutes until the mixture thickens. Then brush on your favorite meat.

You can also add or substitute the above ingredients to create some very unique barbeque sauces on your own. You may prefer to add items such as peppers for a nice flavor or even Tabasco sauce for a hotter style.

Now, you can choose your flavorings and spices to add to the tomato sauce. You can use tomato sauce or tomato puree with a whole tomatoes. Try pineapple juice or orange juice for a tropical flavor or add liquid smoke flavoring for that outdoors flavor. You can even use molasses or your favorite pancake syrup to enhance the style of your bbq sauce. Donít just think simple, try the various flavors such as maple or butter pecan to add a new and unique flavor. Either way you are sure to find a delectable recipe that you cook-out party will love.
