Question Are Goblet squats a good substitute for Front Squats?

Re: Front Squats - one of my biggest issues is 'grip'; I find it extremely awkward and because of that, I find myself having to use less weight. What do you think about Goblet Squats in place of them ?

No prob...Ive never gone very heavy using it, but it was infinately better than the hands across chest method, and my wrists just dont bend back far enough for oly method.
