Who can get Cabrito (goat meat)?

I've been wanting to try Cabrito and since I've got a few pounds of rub on it's way from BBQ Blake I figured I'd try and hunt some down. I'm not having much luck... the local butcher shop doesn't carry it and I have only found one place online and they want like $10+ a pound. I know this stuff is more popular around the Tex/Mex area. Can anyone ship me a goat (butchered of course)?

There is an indian (india indian, not native american) market around the corner from me. You can get all kinds of goat meat there, including goat-heads.

Dunno exactly what cabrito is, if its specially prepared or what, but if it's just a particular cut of goat meat, something like that ought to be able to hook you up.

Cabrito is just the culinary name for goat (actually it's Spanish for goat) and doesn't refer to any specific cut. There are a few indian markets around (dots not feathers) I will have to give them a call.

A few days ago I would have been happy to. Unfortunately, we just sold off the last of our goats. It is good meat, hope you find some.

MMMMMM, goat. I spent a summer in Mexico and ate goat at least once a week. There was this one place that you could get a complete goats head all cooked up. Eat the brains, tongue, eyballs.....yummmy! It was in the Reynosa area, just south of McAllen, TX.

If the hispanic population in your part of California is anything like it is here, then there are taquerias on every corner. You may see where they get thier Cabrito from, or see if you can buy from them.

But I'd also try those India Grocery places.

Thats the funny part. My town is like 58% hispanic yet I can't find goat at any of the mexican grocery stores. If worse comes to worse I know a butcher and I know where there are a few live goats I could probably pick up.

Stats on it calorie wise is the same as chicken but it has less fat and less saturated fat but with a higher protein content. People say it has a beef/buffalo like taste with a more pork like texture. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I used to spend a lot of time in that area (Harlingen, TX, Matamoros, Valle Hermoso, etc). Saw goat everywhere. Funny thing was though, when we'd go out to eat, the Mexicans wouldn't eat it. Least not the white collar ones

Goat is common fare in most Latin American countries, but there is a slight "lower class" connotation to it; it's definitely less common among the upper class, there has got to be some tradition tied to it.

Personally, I like goat meat, well-prepared it's very tasty. "Parrilla de Chivo" (literally "goat barbecue") is a common dish in the Venezuelan outback, the meat is tenderized by marinating it in fresh papaya juice and assorted spices, then grilled over wood coals. It's served with tomato-and-cucumber salad, "arroz con fideos" (rice cooked with fried vermicelli noodles), and a traditional sauce called "guasacaca", which is made with green bell peppers, scotch bonnet peppers, vinegar, salt, pepper, oil and avocados.

There's a little hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint in Bastrop, TX, about 45 minutes east of Austin, that serves great "cabrito", it's called Billy's.

Go to Crows Landing Rd in Modesto--there are all kinds of Mex shops there. A really good one w/a butcher shop and lots of selection is La Perla Tapatia---theres one in Riverbank too. I always thought goat was referred to as Birrea in Spanish.

Blue 1:
Cabrito is probably not "goat" but "goat meat".

Similar to the difference in pescado and pez, fish and "dead fish you eat", not respectively.

The story behin Corona's marketing success was a case study when I was in graduate school. Turns out that Corona was one step above PISS, it was cheap, nearly-unsellable beer in Mexico when a couple of entrepreneurs decided to import it into the US with a very slick add campaign and some powerful marketing strategy...

If we want to get into the nitty-gritty translation, "cabrito" means little goat, and makes reference to the old practice of cooking up a whole young goat over coals for a cowboy crew. This is actually the origin of Texas-style barbecue, the original settlers were cooking goat meat way before cattle became common in the state, and "cabrito" BBQ remains a point of pride for Texas pitbosses.
