As far as goat chops go, there are basically two different types: the loin goat chops (sometimes call T-bones) or rib goat chops cut from the rack. Either of these will work for this recipe. Both loin and rib goat chops have little if any marbling, especially our delicious grass-fed ones, so they will cook fast, but luckily, nature provides a ring of fat along the outside edge will protect the meat and can be trimmed after cooking if it is unwanted.
