Buffalo burgers and steaks

Has anyone tried Buffalo meat on an egg?
I had a Buffalo Burger (fried) the other day, and was surprised at how good--and juicy-- it was!
Is Buffalo always that good?
How is a Buffalo Rib Eye?

    Lipster:[p]If you do buffalo ribs cook them at 200º direct on your upper grill (or raise one with fire bricks) for six or seven hours. These ribs are a true long low temperature cook.

    djm5x9, why?, are they fairly high in fat content?[p]Mop

    Mop:[p]No more than normal beef ribs, but with the longer cook they are very tender. Not so with a shorter cook.[p]Last weekend I did my best beef rib cook. Excellent looking ribs with no fat on the outer side and some (varied in amount and thickness) in the inner side. Cooked direct on the upper rack for eleven (11) hours at 180º to 200º. Tender and tasty, and they were not dryed out as you may expect for such a long cook. Brushed with Shake's sauce for the last three hours. When they do not stay on the serving platter long they must have been good!

    Just last night I had Buffalo and Elk meatloaf at a restaurant here in Atlanta, very good, a little different.

  • Lipster,
    Buffalo meat is excellant. I've had many Buffalo burgers. They're cooked the same as hamburgers are. The meat has an excellant flavor and is nice in juicy if you don't over cook it.

    There's a buffalo farm down the road from us, and we have cooked all the usual parts. In general buffalo (American bison) is very lean - about that of Turkey breast. But in the egg, enough moisture is retained so it doesn't dry out. Most cooks are fast and high temp. The ribs mentioned below really do take a long time at very low temps, and at least for us, were difficult to master until the 3rd or 4th cook. The hamburgers - flavored anyway you want are great at about 600 for 3 minutes a side and about 3 more minutes to dwell.

  • Lipster,[p]Had buffalo jerky a couple of weeks ago and it was great.[p]K
