Apparently, there isn’t a big market for kosher bison meat.
I had some delicious bison sausage a couple weeks ago at a place called “Hot Dougs” here in Chicago. They are famous for serving up all sorts of exotic “encased meats” as they call em. I tend to stay away from the rattler and gator, but I love me some bison!
