Bison Short Ribs w/pron
Thanks to bison raising relatives we are familiar with and enjoy a good helping of buffalo. A couple of months ago I decided I wanted to try smoking a plate of shorts from this magnificent beast. Due to grazing conditions in our area, the butcher was out of buff but trying to find a new source. I put in my order and got the call the other day. I rec'd a full plate cut in half. On one half I removed the large cap of meat for a braising to be held in the future. The other half I left intact--minus membrane of course. The morsels have been rubbed with a brisket profile that I played with a bit and are resting comfortably in the fridge. The smoking will commence tomorrow noonish in my offset using a blend of hickory and red oak. Methinks super low and slow with lots of basting to keep that red meat moist and tender.
