Default Wood Roasted Goat - Has anyone done this in a WFO?

I'm helping a friend who also has a WFO, roast a goat for an upcoming family wedding. We are debating whether to roast it whole or in quarters (any ideas here?) Also any information about roasting methods, seasonings/marinades, roasting temps and the desired internal temp. of the meat would be most welcome.

I don't think anyone has mentioned cooking a goat, but on other whole beasts, the consensus seems to be 'low and slow'. Cooking the roast in an oven after the fire has been removed and the temperature is declining.

Here's an update on the goat: Low and slow was definitely the way to go. We cut the goat into quarters and marinated it overnight in olive oil, fresh rosemary, garlic cloves, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. The next day we removed the goat from the marinade (reserving it), salted the quarters and seared them in hot oil. After searing we added a couple of quarts of low sodium chicken broth and the reserved marinade and roasted it in a low oven for about 4 hours until very tender. We pulled the meat and poured the defatted braising liquid over. Everyone at the wedding loved it even though most guests, myself included , had never tasted goat before. (I thought it tasted like a combination of lamb and pork - milder than lamb, but a little stronger tasting than pork.)
