Ever tried bison before?

This hearty and gamey meat is perfect for those that love the taste of beef without the fat. You cook bison ribeye just like you would a steak so there is nothing new about it. Even the flavor of the meat is fantastic. You get a nice tender meat that absorbs all the spices that it is seasoned with.

If I got you interested in trying some bison, then check out my Charred Bison Ribeye recipe below. Seasoned with 7 different spices that add tons of character to the meat. My only tip before you light your Cowboy Charcoal and start cooking is too watch the internal temperature of the meat closely. Bison has less fat than most meats therefore it will cook faster than expected! Cheers and enjoy trying something new over the fire!

Charred Bison Ribeye Ingredients

  • 1 12-16oz Bison Ribeye
  • 2 tsp of Garlic Salt
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp of Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp of Basil Leaves
  • 1 tsp of Thyme
  • 1 tsp of Rosemary
  • 1 tsp of Cumin
  • Olive Oil



  • Once Bison is at room temperature, drizzle a little olive oil on top and season with all the spices above. Make sure to season thoroughly!
  • Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into one flat pile for direct grilling.
  • Place ribeye over fire and let grill for 7-8 minutes per side or until the internal temperature is 120F (medium-rare) or 130F (medium). Keep a close eye on the steaks as they have less fat than beef and will cook faster! Once done, pull steak off grill and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Slice, serve & enjoy!
