    Bison

    We have a local Bison farm in town now. I went on their free tour yesterday to show the kids something they have never seen besides on TV. Any of you eat Bison regularly? I might add it to the weekly diet for some variety. I guess it lower fat than chicken and higher protein than beef..... so dryer than venison.

      I had bison short ribs at the grand canyon lodge on the north rim last summer. They were AMAZING!

        Bison burgers are the best.

          This. They are pretty damn tasty.
          Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

            Add pork fat to ground bison to make a juicier burger.

                fat content depends on what they are fed, it should be pretty similar to other 'grass fed' beef and wild game. If they are local i suggest you support them

                I used to live near the largest alpaca herd in the country and he was on the incredibly short list of people who would sell alpaca meat. $6/lb isn't out of line so i'd support him when i could. he was an older guy (80's) and finally closed up and put the 1k+ acre land for sale. apparently tenino has changed a bunch in his 20 years there and they wouldn't grant him permits to try and have festivals and such to promote his business, easier to sell what is likely over a million $ in land to a developer to break up than to keep the farm going and sell it as that.

                having an outlet and creating a market is the tough part. it took years and years and huge money to get bison onto safeway shelves.

                I'd rather not raise cows as i like alpacas in the general sense, but it seems like i might need to also start my own pop up food trailer just to have an outlet to sell the stuff to people


                Up is difficult, down is dangerous

                    Elk tastes better than bison

                      We have several buffalo ranches in the area plus one butcher shop that keeps it in stock. It tastes similar to elk to me.

                        Goes well with Bleu Cheese.

                          There's a few bison ranches around here, it's right there beside the beef at the grocery store, I'll buy it if it's on special. Butcher carries it as well along with elk and a few other things.

                          I'm not too picky, I eat seafood primarily.

                            one of our ranch neighbors has at least 1.. cuz I've seen it by the fence along the ranch road.. kinda wonder how many they have..

                            yeah, I ate a Bison Burger, long ago at Cabelas.. they have a restaurant on the 2nd floor.. hmmm I wonder if they have Cabelas through out the USA.. its like a camping, hunting, fishing and general outdoor stuff store.. kind of pricey, but I still shop there from time to time..

                              It's not worth the extra cost to me
