Jill, ALL of your recipes sound delicious!!! I’m new to SD and new to Buffalo meat. It is delicious. Twice I have prepared the Sirloin Roast using the online recipe from package. Always sharing with friends. Now they also buy buffalo.
Concerning Orange Balsamic Brisket…I have no grill and wanted your opinion on cooking in oven. Perhaps 500• preheat. Lower to 375• cook 4 hours (similar to Sirloin Roast). All suggestions welcome. You are the “Master Chef”

Hi Jeanna. Thank you for your support and nice comments! Cooking in the oven would work just fine and as you have suggested, only I might drop my heat to 325 as oven’s are more insulated than grills. Enjoy!

Does this recipe call for a 3 or 6 lbs brisket? Is the desired internal temperature 200 deg?

Hey Jill,
Any advice on cooking your buffalo brisket in a crock pot? Preparing it for company that I’ve never cooked for, so don’t want to mess it up! :)

Hi Kathy. I would prepare marinade as listed and add a cup of water or apple cider vinegar. Instead of marinading it, I would slow cook it in the crock pot. I’ve never met a crock pot that heated the same, so based on your experience adjust your cooking time. My guess would be low, around 175* for 6 to 8 hours, or at a higher temp for less hours. The roast used is a 3 lb. roast. Happy cooking. jill
