Bear Recipe – Pulled BBQ Bear Sandwiches

This simpole recipe will have you wanting seconds.


I hear a lot of non-hunters and hunters alike ask if bear is any good to eat? Yes, if prepared properly is the simple answer.

I have tried it at times when it was delicious, and other times it was almost impossible to swallow. My favorite way to prepare it is to BBQ it. It takes a lot of the grease and wild game taste away.

Gerry Bethge from Outdoor Life has a simple recipe that you have to try the next time you prepare bear.

Give yourself a break from the pulled pork sandwiches, and try substituting bear instead. Here’s a surprisingly easy recipe that tastes great, too.

1 bear shoulder roast
2 tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper
½ cup barbeque sauce (or more, as desired)
1. Preheat oven to 250.
2. Place roast on heavy duty aluminum foil. Cover ¼ cup barbecue sauce and salt and pepper.
3. Wrap roast tightly in aluminum foil.
4. Roast 3 hours or until meat easily comes away from the bone.
5. Strip meat from bone. Mix with remaining barbecue sauce.
