Not sure about grilled goat? Then head to Brady this Labor Day Weekend (August 29-30, 2014) for the World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off, now in its 41st year.
Kiko Guerra has been honing his cabrito-cooking technique for about 20 years. He learned his method as a boy, when he would watch the cowboys who barbecued cabrito on his family’s ranch. Kiko says it takes observation and practice to learn how to cook cabrito correctly and to avoid under- or over-cooking the meat, especially given the inconsistencies of cooking with mesquite coals, the weather, and varying sizes of kid goats. In South Texas, one common place to get kid goats is at flea markets, where farmers will sell them either live or slaughtered.
