We eat buffalo roast a lot and I always cook it medium rare. I like cooking it with a dry rub and basting it with butter. Yummy!

Aren't you talking about water buffalo? I think the OP is talking about bison. The same rules may apply.

Yes I was but I've made Bison too and I make it the same way

Both are from the Bovidae family. The meat is very much the same.

Since buffalo is a lean meat, I generally make my roasts in the oven.
That said, if you want to crock-pot it, add the fat back, in the way of EVOO, and to that, add stock from either beef or buffalo and red wine. Then throw in spices. Should do the trick =0)

Snip and jkath, thanks!! I will try both. I have a sirloin top round roast that I think will be best med rare, but these chuck roasts ive will go in the slow cooker or a low oven.

Also, I've looked up dozen if recipes and they mostly call for a long cooking time or that the meat can't dry out, which I've found to be inaccurate. What I'm looking for is some advice from people who've worked with the meat and have some tried and true tips.

No TNT tips from me, other than I stick to bison ribeye steaks. I tried cooking a couple chuck roasts by using the meat for stew. And while it is always very flavorful, it's also a bit chewy for me. Not dry, but it just doesn't break down the way beef does.

I don't know if I got any ribeyes, my dad might not haven given them up ;) haha and yes, you're right about chewiness, I don't mind it so much, as long as the flavor is good. I wound up chopping the roast very fine and making hash with roasted potatoes and carrots. Not the ideal way to eat a roast, but I hate to waste!

Bison hash sounds good to me.
