Yep, cow country. :smt002

I thought Texas was cow country. Alberta must be where all the frozen beef comes from. JK.

Funny dude. :smt003

Not much free range cattle left here anymore, pretty much all of the Canadian beef comes out of factory type feeder operations, so the 'rolling hills' is just a backdrop. :smt002

About the best you could find locally though is free range bison farmed way in the northern parts of Canada. No comparison between buffalo and beef. :smt002

I had a buffalo burger years ago as a youngin' while at Woolaroc in OK. If I remember correct, it was had a strong taste to it. But, it's been a long time; and my tastes were more suited to Quarter Pounders with Cheese back then. I didn't see a menu on their web site, so I don't know if buffalo burgers are still available or not. Maybe Okie might know.

Not a lot of choices between farmed and free-range unless we're talking like fresh road kill here. :smt001

Most buffalo/bison hamburger has to be mixed with about 30% beef or pork fat to get it to edible,

otherwise it's like a solid protein hockey puck, similar to other wild game meat such as Moose. :smt002

Natives used to mix buffalo with entrail, brain and marrow fat to get it to the 3/1 ratio.

DELICIOUS, buffalo/bison meat always is. :smt001

You're correct, it does have some beef in it. however, its not roadkill. family lives in jackson hole, wy, and sent some up from a neighbor who got one this year.

we're having a bbq tomorrow w/ a ton of elk steak, and some bison. yeah!

In this area fat free meats such as Elk, Buffalo, Ostrich, etc are available at the organic produce / health food type stores. Haven't found any stores selling Iguana meat yet though which is better than all those others. :smt004

You have got to try the Maui style Buffalo Ribs, perfect for the BBQ, DH you can get them in Coquitlam, at Hill's meats, near the Casino. They also have meat from just about anything that walks on four legs, Venison, Elk, Moose, ETC. The Elk ribs done slowly in a pressure cooker are divine, not bovine.

Alright, I'm officially hungry. But, I am consuming a pulled pork sandwich with slaw and baked beens right now. Not buffalo, but pretty good. It came from a local place called The Pig Shack.
