    Wild Oats (HippieMart) had 'em for $5.99/lb. I've got one there before and it was great. They are vacuum packed at the processor, so the flavor is very fresh.

    If it turns out juicy, tender, and flavorful, you'll have to share the details
    on how you did it...

    There's so little marbling or fat on the Tatanka that the few times I tried it--
    different ways-- I hated it...

    I usually grill cuts with some fat...

    Get back with results por favor...

    Happy 4th...

    Actually, even if it doesn't turn out let us know what you did so we don't repeat the same...

    I've done Bison steaks before with success. I shoot for medium rare.

    I usually do beef on the grill on high heat, so that by the time the meat is seared on the outside its cooked to my liking (fairly red in the middle).

    That doesn't work too well with bison. Cooks best over medium heat, and cooks faster than beef, so if you want it medium rare, cook it the amount of time that beef would be rare.

    I have a weber grill with 3 burners, and I turn the front and back on medium, and the middle burner off (around 300-325).

    I'll let y'all know!!
