Crockpot BBQ Pulled Bison

I was so excited when I found out that US Wellness Meats started carrying bison.  I am a self proclaimed bison addict, I just wish I could go hunt my own.  Just to say I did it and help continue to live out my caveman persona.  If anyone out there in internet land happens to own a ranch, or has access to some bison hunting, help a caveman out since I have some extra time on my hands now.  Seriously though, you can make this recipe with a bison chuck or beef and I made it so simple a caveman really did it.  You can have it prepped in under 5 minutes and have minimal dishes.  That sounds like a winning combination to me.


So I have to know, I spent some time doing a lot of hard work on these photos.  I was going for a dark look and especially with the last one.  I call that my Dexter photo, what do you think?  Be honest, you won’t hurt my feelings.  Well maybe a little but I will cry in solitude and eat some bacon.  That seems to be the best solution to all life problems, BACON.  I forgot to tell you guys, if you ever run across any funny bacon photos, posts, or links please shoot them to me in an email to


Like normal, I am out of things to say and am just filling some space for you.  Have you noticed I haven’t been posting many desserts lately?  No I am not mad at you but I was getting a little fluffy and I actually had some complaints that all I posted was dessert.  What do you want to see more of?  Entrees, side dishes, desserts, or all of the above?  Let me know in the comments so I have some direction to take for you.  I will leave you to this recipe, so enjoy.

Total time
Serves: 6
  1. Wash your bison or beef chuck roast under cold water and pat dry
  2. Use your melted coconut oil and rub it all over your chuck roast and then season liberally with salt and pepper
  3. Line the bottom of your crock pot with your sliced red onion
  4. Place your roast on top of the onions and add your 1 cup of water to your crock pot
  5. Set on low and cook for 10-12 hours
  6. Once your roast is done, you should be able to shred it with two forks
  7. Shred your meat til it is to your liking. I like to leave mine in the juice in the crock pot until I serve it

  1. I would always love help with a good side dish to pair with the entree. We just made the Dijon chicken with mango couscous tonight and it was incredible. My husband said the side alone was ok, but combined with the chicken it was delish! Keep up the great work.

  2. My sister has buffalo to hunt in Wyoming and an awesome lodge for hunters to stay in. You should check it out! People come from all over the world to hunt there because its amazing!
    I am totally making this recipe with some of their buffalo I have in my freezer right now.

  3. Love your recipes. I also love shopping at U.S. Wellness Meats. They have a great selection of hard to find cuts of meat.

    The one thing I’m always looking for are recipes for side dishes (veggies) that don’t involve root vegetables. I’m trying to keep the carbs down at the mo’.

  4. Well, the pics didn’t do much for me but the bbq was kickin’ a…!!
    I used a beef chuck roast, all nice and grass fed (actually came from a nearby farm owned by Dave Matthews), cooked it for about 10 hours.

    For the sauce, I added a handful of raisins and some warming spices like allspice and clove and cooked it slow and low for a couple of hours to thicken up after blending it smooth. Yuuumy!
    I am new to this paleo business (doing the Hartwig’s Whole30 plan) so getting to enjoy yummy food food has been one of the unexpected bonuses.

  5. This is a great recipe!!!! Even my non-paleo family loved it! Thanks for a great recipe. BBQ sauce was to die for.

  6. I love the photos, especially the first one. For the Dexter ones you need more real looking blood…come on, sacrifice your body for the blog!! :)

    I’d like to see more simple main dishes and simple meal ideas just like this one!

    Thanks for your continued inspiration!

  7. Theres actually a bison farm down the road from my house, theres a (whisper) Great White Buffalo there too. But alas… I’m in Germany. I really am going to miss all the fresh produce when I leave here. hmph.

  8. I am making this today! I would suggest more main dishes. As a single working mom I need quick and easy entrees. I can figure out my own sides, and dessert is rarely on the menu.
