Standing Rib Roast
8-10 lb Standing Rib Roast 1 tb. Olive Oil 2 tbs. Salt 1 tbs. Fresh Ground Pepper
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Rub roast with oil, salt, pepper. Set in large roasting pan and place in oven. Roast meat for 15 minutes per lb. Check internal temp of roast after 1 hr, 45 mins using an instant-read thermometer placed in the midsection: 125 degrees = rare, 135 degrees = medium, 155 degrees = well-done. Remove roast from oven when desired internal temp has been reached. Transfer to cutting board and loosely tent with aluminum foil. Do not even think about cutting into it for at least 15 minutes. 30-35 minutes of resting time is better. Once beef has rested, discard foil, slice and serve.
Smoked Turkey
Our smoked turkeys are fully cooked and only need to be reheated. Place in a pan or roaster and add about an inch of water to avoid drying out. Cover and reheat for 2 hours at 250 degrees. Enjoy!
Smoked, Fully Cooked Spare Ribs
Place ribs in pan on a rack with 1 inch water in the bottom. Cover tightly. Cook for about 1 hour at 350 degrees. (Make sure pan does not dry out!) Uncover, add your favorite BBQ sauce, let brown for 15 minutes. Serve.
How to Prepare Bison
There is no such thing as tough Bison meat, only improperly instructed cooks. You can interchange Bison with almost any beef recipe if a few simple instructions are followed. The golden rule is “do not overcook.” Since Bison meat is so lean, you’re not cooking fat. As a result, it cooks quicker and you are able to cook at a lower temperature.
  
ROASTING: Set oven temperature at 250-275 degrees and user a meat thermometer to check for doneness. At this lower temp your roast should take the same amount of time as beef that is cooked at a higher temperature
 
PAN FRYING, PAN BROIL: High heat only for searing! Then turn down the heat. Remember Bison cooks faster than beef, don’t overcook that steak!
 
BRAISING: After searing, cook low and slow and with plenty of moisture. Since Bison is so lean, you will need to keep moist. Marinate first and baste frequently during cooking.
BROILING/GRILLING: Move your rack further away from the heat source. Broil as beef, but shorten the cooking time. Turn steaks a few minutes sooner and check for doneness
