Recipes for Goat that can be cooked in the bush

Some of the places I go tramping that are further into the back of beyond have a fairly reliable supply of goats on hand. 
I make quite a few goat curries at home in the slow cooker but these are usually from goat that is sourced closer to the road end and not two days walk from the car.

My thinking is that if I am in a location a long way from the road it would be easier to eat the goat on site,  especially if tramping in a group it could feed a few people/save carrying meat in.

Does anyone have any good recipes for this sort of scenario where the cookware is limited to a gas cooker and 2-3 pots & pans etc?

I'd be tempted to try a curry like rogan josh or maybe a stir-fry just cut the meat into strips across the grain to avoid it getting tough from a quick cook.  Just try one at home to perfect your recipe

Goat backsteaks cut up and put in a curry are fine. Any other cuts usually will need a slow cooker to make tender enough. And only tip the small ones over if you wish to eat it that day.

dont understand the fascination with curry myself..... just because the turban wearers normally cook goat with it DOESNT mean its the be all and end all.
if you think of goat along the lines of lean hoggot/lamb you wont go far wrong....how to cook in bush???? steak it and quick fry,salt and maybe some masterfoods mild steak seasoning....of the flavour sachet out of your 2 minute noodles if nothing else...
you wont go far wrong...if you think its a bit tough...find too rocks and give it a beating between them...its prechewing lol
young goat is very palatable.
with salt and cooked in butter MOST meat will be good.

Had a mate who inherited a bunch of angora goats when he purchased his first farm in the late 80's. Thought they were quite cute and friendly until he saw them dozing their way under his deer fences and flogging the Deer's expensive corn meal. So we set up a rough processing line and tipped all 30 of them over in his old cattle yards.
Took my 15 back home with me and fed the neighbours and friends for quite a while on them. NOONE had even the slightest whiff that they were not tasty young hoggets. That corn meal certainly put the finishing touches to an already tasy carcass.
You develop a taste for curries when you get posted to countries that make a damn fine curry or five Roll Eyes

Thanks all for the suggestions.  I will do some experiments at home with some of the meat I have in the freezer and post up some conclusions in due course.

A bit off topic but I used to cook goat leg on the rotissery,  Lots of oil and high heat to seal it then long and slow over a low heat.  Loved by all,  most thought it was a low fat mutton.

Yes it is definitely under rated.
True story:
At a BBQ that I took a whole lot of venison and goat to,  the two got mixed together over the charcoal and differentiation of the two meats became a lost cause.
When it came to the eating,  no one could pass the
‘pepsi or coke’ challenge’ to say what was what.
