Default Nilgai ribs

Was gifted some huge ribs today and have no idea how to cook them. Is the fat nasty like a whitetail or can I leave it? Smoker or oven?

Well no help from the brain trust so I just got as much fat and membrane off as I possibly could and dusted them with my normal rib rub. On low and slow now.

Darn! The fat is NOT nasty, by you typically trim fat from ribs anyway. You're gonna love that meat!

Edit: my bro cooked a rack as well and he brined but the smell and flavor was much the same - like mutton. Is that common for Nilgai?

Never thought to cook up the fajitas, but I have tried the ribs on a couple occasions. Never could get them to taste very good. Haven't tried the crock pot yet, but maybe next time I will. Those fajitas look great by the way.
