I don't really like lamb, but I keep trying it thinking that maybe it's been the way it's prepared. I haven't tried goat yet, but I would. I'll have to check the store the next time I go. Does it taste like lamb?

Duck is awesome if cooked correctly. At least wild duck is...

My family eats fairly "traditional" meats. Mostly beef, chicken, pork. Turkey & ham on the holidays, fish occaisionally. We do eat a pretty decent amount of wild game: buffalo, venision, duck, pheasant, and goose.

Eating goats is the least of our concern.
Wow, how is this post even germane to the conversation? Judgey-pants much, vivache? No wonder so many rural people think horse owners are snooty, rich *******s.

A good friend of mine raises Boer meat goats. Apparently there's a good market for them in Virginia.

I've had goat meat and I adore goat cheese. I also like lamb quite well. It can be somewhat overpowering, and tends to be an acquired taste.

Lamb is very expensive here in the eastern U.S., which means I don't get it as often as I'd like.

There's a similarity, but goat is less pungent than lamb.

So I'd say if you don't like lamb, you're not going to like goat.

I love Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, and they use a lot of goat in their recipes.

Good to know. I'll end up trying it anyways, I'm sure. I will try any food, more than once usually. Even coleslaw, which I hate. I try it everytime it's on the table on the off chance I'll actually like it someday....

You might. I hated sweet potatoes for a very long time. Now I can actually eat them. I wouldn't say they're the best food EVAH, but prepared right can actually be tasty.

As for sweet potato fries? Oh YEAH, BAYBEE!

I thought I was the only one that was that silly. I try root beer every now and again just to see if I might actually like it. Still do not. It smells good to me, but I do not like the taste.

I still do not like coffee and do not try it because the smell alone makes me want to hurl.


Good to know that goat is some what like lamb. I would try it if it was available (I would like to try horse too). I am not a fan of lamb but I might like goat, who knows.
I think I will ask my brother about it (he is a chef).

As I said before, my grandpa had Filipino friends who bought goat off us for eating, but I've never had the chance to try it. I DID however convince my friend when we were like 10 to hold down one of our pet goats so I could milk her into some filthy pot I found. I was quite disgusted by the taste, but I suppose that could have been the 20 year old dirt floating in it...

I had lamb once when I was a kid at someone's house but I can't for the life of me remember what it tasted like or even if I liked it.

The biggest craze up here in Canada now is bison. It's a fantastic meat, mostly because they haven't figured out how to poison it like they do with beef yet so bison farms are still just herds roaming massive pastures eating grass and hay. I find it absolutely delicious, you haven't lived until you've eaten a hot roast bison sammich! But much like goat, it's being touted as being far leaner and healthier then beef.

Yes! I loooooove bison. We eat it more than beef. In fact, my husband's aunt and uncle want to buy a bison with us to raise for meat. I find it to be quite affordable too.
