    Long slow roast is the key to making it nice and tender. I usually do them about 4 hours. Same with wallaby legs.

    Soak the rear wheels overnight in a mix of beer and a decent amount of lemon juice. Breaks the sinew down and tenderizes them.
    A strong salt water solution does the same, but can give it bit of a salty taste.

    Rinse off the solution, don't cook in it... then as GravelBen says - long, slow roast. We like to do it for a full day in the slow cooker with some canned tomatoes - as the acid from the tomatoes further breaks it down.
    When cooked like this, most people can't taste the difference between goat and lamb - aside from the lack of fat in the goat.

    A mate tells me that he once made Salamis from goat meat and entered them at the Sika show. He won something

    Dude the best is goat curry. Trott down to your local Indian shop and grab a few spices, then into it. Goat curry, and rice and narn bread. Yum.

    I just do the back wheels the same as you would a lamb roast,2.5-3hrs has always been tender and juicy but I only take meat from young nannys.

    I usually try and get a goat to mix with venison for sausages, seem to go really well together in a banger.

    Goat can dry out easily as there is little fat in the meat so retaining as much moisture as possible when roasting in the key to juicy tender results ..... That and not trying to roast up a stinky old billy that is.

    As others have said above Roast slowly for a longer period in an oven bag or wrapped in foil.

    Cooked in the slow cooker with a can of chopped tomatoes, some herbs and red wine is very nice too.

    I leave the bone in when cooking the legs.

    Pierce the leg in several places and poke a clove of garlic into the cuts, Coat the outside with mixed herbs, Place the leg in a roasting bag or wrapped in foil in a roasting dish that has a lid add some sliced onions and a half a cup or so of red wine and cook it slowly over several hours.

    There's lots of recipe's on the net Google some up and give it a try.

    Just be prepared for People to screw their nose up and refuse to eat it once they know it is Goat Meat.

    My wife's snobby friend loved the Roast Goat Leg I did last Christmas ...... She's still telling everyone that was the best LAMB Roast she's ever had.

    Cheers
    Pete

    I don't understand people that turn their nose up at goat meat, young nannies are wonderful eating if cooked correctly, to many fussy pricks around.

    I shot three young billy goats for dog tucker. They were around six months old at a guess and weren't very stinky. cooked up one rear quarter and it was great so don't limit yourself just to nannies, young billies are good to
