Serves: 6• Cooking Time: 4-5 hours

These juicy, tender, and delicious bison chuck roast burnt ends will have everyone raving.


Bison Chuck Roast

• BBQ Sauce (We used Jimmy Dean Maple Bourbon)

•Black & Tan Steak Rub

•1 Can of Beer (We used Widmer Brothers IPA)


• 1/2 stick of butter

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat smoker to 275 degrees. We used hickory smoked pellets.

While your smoker is preheating, you will begin to prep your chuck roast. Cut your chuck roast into 1-2 inch squares. Once cut, apply sirracha liberally to all pieces as a binder. You may also use mustard if you don't want the extra spice.

Grab your Black & Tan Steak rub and season generaously until all pieces look black.

Once your smoker reaches 275 degrees you will then add the 1-2 inch chuck roast pieces directly on the grate.

You will want to smoke for about 2 hours or until the internal temperature is about 175 degrees which ever comes first.

Every 45 mins or so go ahead and open and spray your burnt ends with your beer, turning every so often.

You will then remove the burnt ends from the grate and transfer to a tin foil tray. Once transfered you will add your BBQ sauce and have a stick of butter.

Cover with tin foil and cook for an additional 1-2 hours. Make sure the sauce is either bubbling or meat is pull apart tender. Take out and let rest.

Serve and Enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

Bison contains less fat and cooking time should be based on internal temperature. If you are unfamiliar with smoking bison be sure to cook low and slow.
