Where's those Texas boys when you need them?
They're usually like a bunch of cockroaches around here. Turn on the light, and they all disappear.

Treat it the same as you would wild hog. It is very lean so I would pull it at 155 and wrap it in foil, set in a cooler for a bit. Cabrito is big here in S. Texas. I would rather grill it my self, slow and indirect for 4 hrs or so. Try it.

Here's a Food Network recipe.

4 guijillo chiles
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 teaspoon ground cloves
10 allspice berries
1/3 cup Mexican oregano
12 sprigs fresh thyme
6 garlic cloves
1 Spanish onion, roughly chopped
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 (12-pound) goat, quartered or 1 (6 to 8-pound) lamb shoulder
Salt and pepper
1 (2-pound) package dried avocado leaves

Toast chiles, cover with boiling water in a deep bowl, and set aside for 20 minutes. Grind cumin, cloves, allspice, and oregano in coffee grinder. Drain soaked chiles, puree in blender the chiles, ground spices, thyme, garlic, onion, vinegar, and 1/2 cup of water. Process until smooth Push mixture through a sieve, season goat with salt and pepper. Rub paste all over the meat. Arrange in a bowl and allow to marinate for 4 hours, refrigerated.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

In a deep roaster pan scatter half of the avocado leaves on the bottom, place meat on top of the avocado leaves and scatter the remaining leaves over the meat. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Cook the goat 6 to 7 hours until meat is falling off the bone. If using lamb shoulder cook for 4 hours.

***Fresh avocado leaves are toxic, they must be dried to be used for cooking.

Dog. A medium sized dog, not one of those little terriers.

Goat has a mild unique flavor like lamb has it's own unique flavor. I think it is simular to lamb but milder, it has that same type of flavor profile as lamb does. When grilled slow over Mesquite it's very tasty. I'm not sure I want to get you guys started but..... You also have to get em young, kid goats are said to be the best. Tender and suculent....now behave!
