  1. You mean ribs from a Buffalo, and not in the style of Buffalo chicken wings?

    It's tough, because Buffalo meat is very lean. The time on the grill to get them tender might dry them out. Maybe brine first? (Normally, you don't need to brine beef, but this might be an exception). Then a honey garlic soy marinade (pineapple juice? - don't use fresh, it will eat your meat), grill low and slow (smoker if you have it), when it's almost done, baste with some honey and raise heat to laquer a bit. You can dust with some cayenne before serving.

    1. Last week i had Bison ribs at a Toronto restaurant. They were tender and definitely not lean so maybe sbp's wrning shouldn't concern you. According to http://yankeefarmersmarket.stores.yah... it's the same animal.

        Did you have Bison short ribs or back ribs? I've seen bison short ribs on restaurant menus, but never back ribs (which look more like spare ribs). Short ribs will look like a plank of bone with a hunk of meat on top, and by their nature have a lot of marbling. Spare ribs tend to have fat around the meat.

        Either way, I've never seen buffalo "spare ribs", so I'm in no way stating as fact that they are lean. But I have had buffalo steaks, and they are very lean and need to be cooked carefully.

      2. U have to pressure cook them for 35 minutes then use a tangy peppery bar b cue sauce and finish them off in a broiler or grill, hands down the best tasting ribs I've ever had, u will not b disappointed, if u do not pressure cook them first they r going to b very, very chewy let me know if u decide to do these again, Brian
