Smoked Short Ribs


6 lbs bison or beef short ribs thawed.

Rib rub of your choice

BBQ sauce

Preheat smoker to 225 degrees.  Remove short ribs from packaging and rub each side with rib rub.  Lightly spray smoker racks with non-stick cooking spray.  Place ribs on the racks.  Put racks into smoker.  Add hot water to the water pan.  Add smoke chips- I used mesquite or hickory chips for a heavy bold smoke.  Smoke for 1.5 hours adding more chips regularly.  After 1.5 hours, remove ribs from smoker and place in a roasting pan or dutch oven.  Add the meat juices from the water pan to the roasting pan. Brush ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce.  Cover and put into the oven at 225 degrees for 4-5 more hours.  Ribs will be tender and the pan juices are amazing.  You could also put the ribs into a slow cooker on low for 4-5 hours.  Serve with more sauce if desired.

High Point Bison’s Brisket Recipe

1 bison or beef brisket 3-5 lbs, all fat cover trimmed 
1 large packet ranch dressing mix 
1 packet onion soup mix 
2 Tbsp. butter 
½ cup water or beef broth

Combine both seasoning mixes into a bowl. Coat the brisket on all sides with seasonings. Place brisket in a pan with a tight fitting lid. Place butter on top of brisket. Add liquid to the pan. Put on lid and cook at 250 degrees for 5-6 hours.

Make sure your pan just fits the brisket. Too large a pan will cause moisture to escape and dry out the meat.
