Nyama Choma (Simple Kenyan Grilled Meat) with Kachumbari Salad

3-4 lbs bone-in goat, lamb, or beef pieces (leg, shoulder, short ribs, or combination), cut into 2” chunks
1 lemon, cut into wedges
coarse sea salt or kosher salt to taste

1. Rub the meat all over with the lemon juice, then pat dry using paper towels; generously salt the meat and set aside.

2. Prepare your grill for indirect medium-heat grilling by banking the coals to one side for a charcoal grill, or turning off the burners on one side. Place the goat pieces on the cool side of the grill, fattiest-side-up, and grill until the meat registers at least 140F on an instant-read thermometer, about 35 minutes.

3. Transfer the meat to the hot side of the grill and grill until crispy, about 3 minutes per side. Season with more salt to taste, then serve with Sukuma Wiki, Ugali, and Kachumbari.
