The plan is to buy about half a baby goat (~4-5kgs) and slow cook it overnight in the YS640.

Depending on how lean the meat is I'm thinking wrapping sooner rather than later would be a good idea.

Not sure on the set temp I'll be cooking at as I'm planning on doing a brisket, pork shoulder and lamb shoulder at the same time.

Anyone had any luck slow cooking goat in a pellet grill before?

Hi Gus
Sorry for a very sloooow reply.
I've tried goat a couple of times on my Yoda and have been disappointed with the results.
Both came out tough and a little dry. I probably cooked both of them for too long (approx 4 hrs) and at too lower a temp, 250f.
The quality of the goat wasn't good either, one was more billy than goat and they were only small cuts about a 1kg.
So next time I'll order some in rather than, 'hey look there's some goat lets whack into the Yoder and see what happens" and get bigger cuts. And hopefully much better quality.
I'll try starting off at a higher temp then foil (great idea) to try and retain some more moisture.

I reckon you'd be better off treating goat like a leg of lamb - they tend to roast better than slow cook, as they are a bit lean and lack the connective tissue of a shoulder - no harm in trying though
