    Both.

    I bone mine out in the field, bring it home and leave it in the fridge for a week in as bigger pieces as possible, then cube it for stews. You should only cut it up into smaller pieces when you are ready to freeze it or cook it as it exposes more surface area to bacteria that cause the meat to spoil.
    Then slow cook it with your favorite recipe.

    Or as I had in Morocco years ago, killed skinned and cooked straight away. Cooked in one of those clay tangene things with onions and stuff Iexpected it to be tough but it was unbelieveably tender.

    Soak overnight in either milk, salt water, or water with a few onions cut up & couple table spoons of vinegar.
    I do the onion/vinegar trick mainly - just divine eating.

    Google proteolytic enzymes. Found in kiwifruit, pineapple, ginger, figs, tree tomatoes (I think) and some other fruits etc. Use these as ingredients in a marinade, and they start to break down proteins, causing the meat to become tender. Careful how long you leave it, as it can just make your meat turn to mush. Acidic marinades (like vinegar and lemon juice mentioned above) have a similar but lesser effect, but they require contact throughout the meat (so best when the meat is in smaller parts, like a stew rather than as a whole leg for example)

    might be something to do with the calibre used ..... try a 416 Rigby, 50 casl or similar for max "tenderisation"

    What's yr best goat recipe? I have done heaps of curries but I recon the Moroccan tangene sounds pretty good.

    You guys ever had a crack at the curry recipes that come with the instructions and little bags of spices and ingredients stapled to the inside of a little fold out book. Makes mint feeds.

    Yep they are at countdown. Shit to be honest @Tommy I haven't been to the supermarket for a year or so, just makes me angry ( especially if I have to go with missus and kids) I can't cope with the butchery prices, do my balls! Dodgy named mankey bullshit meat cuts at Jafa prices, disgraceful behaviour.
    But yes they are at supermarket. For you guys I'll grow a pair and sneak in get a snap for yrs.

    This one is my favourite. I haven't done any post-mortem ageing on any of the goat I've taken. I don't have the fridge space to do that. I usually dice up the backstraps for curry the night I get home, and the legs go in the freezer straight away. I rely on ageing it 'on the hoof', i.e. not eating mangey old ones.

    The key to tender goat is to cook it slow and/or in liquid, therefore you can't really go wrong with a slow curry.
