BBQ Pulled Bison
Prep Time:
60 Minutes
Cook Time:
5.5 Hours


  • 4 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 6 (6 oz.) bison sirloin, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup tomato ketchup
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup water


  1. Place heavy bottomed sauté pan on stove. Turn burner to high, and wait 3-4 minutes for it to preheat.
  2. Add oil, wait 1 minute, and then add as much meat as can be managed by the size of the pan you are using. You want enough meat to cover the bottom of the pan, but not too much so that the meat stacks up.
  3. Brown well and place into a 9x13 baking pan, rotating well-browned meat out, and fresh meat into the sauté pan.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the 1 cup water, into a bowl and mix well. Once mixed, pour over browned bison in baking dish.
  5. Put dish into preheated oven, and cook for 4 hours. Add water, ¼ cup at a time, every hour, mixing well each time.
  6. Meat should be tender and juicy; if not, increase cooking time by 1 hour, and add additional water.
