Depends on which of the Paleo strains dsohei's following (although I don't know of any off the top of my head that's as fat-phobic as SAD is). Cordain's revised Paleo Diet adds saturated fat back in, Robb Wolf has mentioned that the only reason he says "lean meats" is because he wants buy-in and people are so terrified of fat. Sisson and the Jaminets push saturated fat (especially for your nervous system). Even Ancestral Health / Weston A. Price encourages saturated fat ...

U ignorant troll. I've been doing the diet for years, I know more about it, and digestive disorders than you. Gtfo out of my post if all you're going to do is answer the imagined questions you want to believe I should be asking. Ppl like u are why paleo is looked at like a cult.

yes, it is crazy to 'worship' fat on paleo isn't it? maybe you should brush up on the fundamentals of the diet? maybe?

so sorry dsohei, please accept my most sincere apologies, but I wouldn't worry too much about halal food, it's kind of like 2012 and anyone who still believes in religion is kind of like a bit stupid and scared, but there's nothing to fear! death is the release from life! heaven would get suffocatingly boring after a few billion billion years that's the problem

cerement- I find something a lot more like 15-20% for grilling burgers, otherwise the flame ups are insane. But I must point out that that's hung and hand butchered- no water added in, which has an effect in regular store bought meats. Sausage we run at around 30%, yes (except droewors, which needs to be close to 5% or it's too greasy) - but it's not the same as burgers on the grill.

Well, if we are doing potjiekos, we just start piling on. But that's probably not normal cast iron. You can do fast or slow in cast iron. I'll often use a cast iron pan in the oven for a roast. Basically, what we do with goats is take the loins, ribs, and haunch roasts from the legs. Everything else gets ground. Any of it will work, we've boned out the leg roasts and chopped them up for stir fry. One thing that makes a huge difference is finding a game animal cookbook- goat and deer aren't very far different in terms of meat type and flavor (except goat tends to be not gamy at all)

"sometimes we have to add fat" - ideal proportions for juicy burgers and sausage is 30% fat / 70% protein (lamb neck has this ratio ready to go). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6t1rRLt-yY and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u03JjP5DLWQ

Still a valid question. The saturated fat is as important to your body as the protein is.

in general, goat will be fairly lean to begin with. I wouldn't worry about it at all. When we butcher one of our goats, the grind parts end up under 10% without any tweaking- at times we even have to add fat to get a decent burger!

My favorites for a good slow roast are the hind legs. The - dunno what they call it, but it's the loin cut- the loin cut is good for grilling, stir fry, carne asada, whatever.

The most important part is to get the goat fairly young- we generally butcher at 11 months, or 14-16.

Whole leg of lamb and leg of lamb shank. Both are fabulous for slow roasting.
