RECIPE: BBQ Pulled Bison Sliders

posted on

July 5, 2023


Pulled bison is surprisingly simple to make, and deeply flavorful and tender.  Add your favorite BBQ sauce and some coleslaw and you’ve got a perfect summer meal.  The hardest part is just remembering to start this recipe early.  This will cook low and slow over about 8 hours, for pull-apart-tender, juicy, meat.


  • 2 lb Ramstead Ranch Bison Chuck Roast
  • 1 medium onion
  • 24 -30 oz broth, or enough to just about cover the meat (we recommend beef bone broth, if you have it)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ¾ tsp chili powder
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ Tbsp paprika
  • ¾ cup your favorite BBQ sauce (plus more for adding on top!)
  • 8 slider buns
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Coleslaw


  • Crock pot
  • Cutting board
  • Platter


  1. Pat the bison chuck roast dry, then generously season both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the chili powder, garlic powder, and paprika.
  3. Rub the seasoning mixture on all sides of the bison, until evenly coated.
  4. Thinly slice the onion.
  5. Drizzle a thin layer of oil into the crock pot and add the sliced onions.
  6. Drizzle olive oil over the onions and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Place the bison on top of the onions.
  8. Pour in the broth (you want just enough to cover the meat).
  9. Place the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for about 8 hrs, or until the internal temperature is 160F and the meat pulls apart easily.
  10. Remove bison from the crock pot, place on a platter, and use two forks to shred the meat.
  11. Put the meat back in the crock pot and add ¾ cups of BBQ sauce.  Then cover with the lid again and cook on low for about 30 more minutes.
  12. Layer your slider buns with the pulled bison, BBQ sauce, coleslaw, and your favorite toppings/condiments.
  13. Enjoy, and definitely share with friends!
