Goat Rub Directions

Goat Braise Directions
Rub goat roast thoroughly with pepper and the goat rub, then season with salt and pepper additionally, and then let sit over night.
**(Optional, if you can, do it!) Smoke goat at 220ºF with mesquite pellets for 1.25 hours. If not smoking, sear goat roast on all sides until caramelized.
Place roast in deep pan and cover in rough chopped tomatoes, rosemary, thyme, remaining 4 garlic cloves, remaining 2–3 bay leaves, remaining tablespoon of oregano, stock, red wine vinegar, Dijon, and another seasoning of salt and pepper all over. Cover pan
with foil and put in a 300ºF oven for about 6 hours, flipping roast halfway through. Finish roast by taking off wrap and foil and allow to brown in over another 15-20 minutes. Allow meat to cool in its juices or use right away!
