I'm going the route of the anti-traitionalite this year. I routinely buy Bison for burgers. This will be the first time I've had a Bison steak (ribeye.)

At this point I'm thinking Bison and a beer. No veggies, no potatoes, no salad: just steak.
Bison is amazing, it's just too expensive to buy consistently. I use it exclusively for when I'm trying to build up my strength and put on mass. Higher in protein and lower in fat. And it tastes amazing, so it's really easy to get down.

Ah. For the sake of clarity, I'm single and I don't have "rug rats" running around. 🙃

The steak isn't Hall's Chophouse expensive but it still wasn't cheap: right at $40 for 17 oz. That's pretty standard.

On the other hand, I don't see the ground Bison as expensive (based on how I budget meals.) $7.98 a lb. at Food Lion for Organic. I can get four burgers out of that...puts me at about $2.50 for the meal.

This year we are cooking like we traditionally do, but just not for as many, maybe 20 folks. I smoke a turkey on the egg in this amazing cajun marinade my wife found years ago and it's good. Traditional vegetables; black eyes peas, collards, sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese, dressing, mashed taters etc. My son and I will most definitely be watching some football, Egg Bowl kater, snd if we can make it, the Alabama/Michigan State game.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of y'all!

Happy turkey day! Or ...bison steak day!

The CDB toilet paper is just in case some dip$hit brings up politics during the gathering.

We have a Ted's around the corner and I've had their bison ribeye several times. It's delicious. However, I really can't taste the difference between bison and beef....I'll be the first to admit my palate is not very sophisticated.

Part of it is health. The way Bison are raised you're not eating meat that's been exposed to hormones and antibiotics.

As far as the ground Bison goes ... I find it more "stable" (?) for a burger. The meat is a little more coarse, if that's the right word? I like my burgers meat rare and with regular ground beef at the store? Yeah, you're not going that way, are ya? You're not going to Wendy's and asking for a ¼ pounder medium rare? Think about it—if it's not well done it's falling apart.

I do find it sweeter. But then again, I'm not a big sweets guy so that might be palate.

The biggest thing to me is the meat is lighter. I eat a ¼ pounder for lunch (beef) and I'm wanting a nap. The Bison doesn't sit as heavily.
