I bet you wanted to say shut the hell up! geeeeez... But I just wanna document how I'm gonna process the meat. Plus this is how food are processed behind the tasty stuff. Recently, I was also had been writing notes on how to butcher your own meat, as well as hunting wild game goes. I have this idea what if I be stranded in the wilderness, maan at-least I know some basic hunting strategies, not only that but how to cut them up. So I put my self on a little test, and it was perfect timing that my little bro's coworker happened to have relatives or owned a ranch back at Stockton. Not bad for a medium size goat for 150 bucks. The goat meat were dropped off from the ranch to his coworker's mother's house, and we just picked it up from there. Always a good bargain at the ranch, specially if you cut your own meat. This one in particular were already had been cut unto 5 pieces. I ain't tryin' to dis any butchering companies, in fact I would probably even wanna work to a supermarket as a butcher (I heard they get payed pretty good) but since I do music, and other crafty stuff, I'm a little too cautious with my hands.
Here is what my bro and I picked up at the house.
So far it looks like a crime scene. Gross right?
Now I gotta re-cut them up for storing and for cooking. Here are my cutting tools. A meat saw is also important. Make sure they are sanitized before using. As well as the sink. The backyard sink is pretty handy when it comes of doing something like this instead of the garage or in the indoor kitchen. Since it's in the backyard, you gotta use a cooler with some ice to keep it fresh and to keep them flies away.
The chopping board, also had been sanitized.
A chain mail glove for my left hand. I cut with my right hand.
There are two of this. The upper area: arms and rib cages.
There are two of this also. The hind area: legs and stomach area.
And then only one of this. The head. Which makes it the total of 5 parts.
The washing and cutting is done, and they all fit in the cooler with ice.
Now the cooler is in the kitchen. Waiting for the old man and my bro for what they want to do next.
Here is my Bro and Elsie cutting them up unto pieces. They were preparing it for Papaetan (bile stew).
And me cutting the roasted goat meat called Kilawen. It's meat, skin, and liver. You can even add in the tongue. First it was marinaded with ground pepper and soy sauce. Roast it in the oven. When it's cooked, chop it up into small pieces like Carne Asada. Mixed in some minced ginger, onions, garlic, and chili peppers or jalepenos. The last thing to mixed in are vinegar. The real Kilawen is raw, pickled with vinegar. But I prefer the texture more like Carne Asada.
After all this, working from a food plant you learn that it's important to sanitized the tools and sink before and after - even after using some soap. I don't know if this is strong enough, but I use lysol disinfectant spray.
