how long to hang goat meat?
« on: July 12, 2015, 12:41:33 pm »
When we send the odd goat down for slaughter, the abattoir usually hangs for a week or so before it comes back to us but this time they sent it back up to us after 2 days  ???
The chef in the hotel where he was going to wanted him hung for a week and luckily we had access to a meat larder so we could hang him ourselves but this may not always be possible, especially during shooting season. I know the abattoir have rearranged their delivery days so not sure if thats the reason why they send him up earlier than normal?

Usually take mine in on Monday morning and meat is cut Friday or Saturday  for sheep and goats unless I ask for it to be hung longer because it's older animals.

Next time I'll check with the abattoir just incase I can't use the meat larder

We usually hang ours for a week as its so lean and it won't keep for too much longer as it gets very sticky.
