Enjoy this quick and easy recipe by Sarah Sharratt from UpRooted.
  • Difficulty Level Easy
  • Technique Grilling
  • Preparation Time 2 hours
  • Cooking Time 3 hours
  • Yield 6 servings
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic powder 
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Rosemary 
  • 2 tablespoons Salt 
  • 1 tablespoon Onion powder 
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Black Pepper 
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced 
  • One 3-pound Bison roast (round, top sirloin or rib) 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Olive Oil, or enough to coat the roast
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, rosemary, salt, onion powder, pepper and garlic. Using your hands, coat the meat with the Olive oil, and then smear the rub all over. Transfer the meat to a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.
  2. Prepare a grill for indirect cooking at 225 degrees F. Remove the roast from the fridge 30 minutes before you are ready to cook, so it can come up to room temperature
  3. Place the roast on the grill over indirect heat and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees F for medium-rare, approximately 3 hours. Remove from the grill, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving

Cook’s Note: Bison meat does not marble like cow's meat, so it is a lot leaner. Bison can take a third less time to cook compared to beef and is best eaten rare to medium-rare. Cooking times can vary depending on the thickness of the roast, so I strongly recommend using a meat thermometer
