BIISON COOKING TIPS: 
• Medium to low heat (never high).
• Pan sear briefly first to seal in juices.
• Suggestion for medium to rare only (never well done).
• Turn often.
Grill / Broiler:
• Set one notch further away from heat than for beef.
Roasting:
• 2 hours per pound at 275° F.  
• Internal meat temperature of 140° F.  
• Best cooked on a rotisserie or slow cooker.
Pan Cooking:
• Keep a tight lid for moisture retention.
Steak Grilling:
• About 10 minutes for an 8 oz. steak to medium.
Burger Grilling:
• Meat thickness greater than 1/2 inch.
• Don't flatten with spatula - keep juices in meat.
