1 Bison ribeye, 1cup morel mushrooms (or mushrooms of your choice), 1cup baby potato’s halved, 3 cloves garlic, 1 sprig fresh rosemary, 1 sprig fresh thyme, 6 pieces asparagus, 1/2 cup veal demi-glace, 1/4 cup blackberries, 2 tbsp. olive oil, Vancouver Island sea salt and pepper
1.Light your BBQ, set one half on high and other half on low. Rub bison ribeye with 1 tsp. oil and 1 tsp. salt/1 tsp. pepper. Let your ribeye steak sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before grilling to ensure even cooking 
2. Wrap potatoes in aluminum foil envelope with smashed  garlic, fresh herbs and 1 tsp salt/1 tsp pepper. Place on low side of the BBQ for 20 minutes, flipping half way through. 
3. To get those perfect grill marks on your bison ribeye, make sure the BBQ is hot. Place the steak on a 45 degree angle directly on a hot spot for 3 minutes, turn the steak another 45 degrees. This will create the criss cross grill marks. Flip the steak after 3 minutes and repeat for the other side. While the meat is cooking do not touch or move the meat. Remove from BBQ when internal temperature hits 130F (medium rare) or to the doneness of your choice. Rest the steak for 8 minutes

6. Grill asparagus on the BBQ until cooked through (tender to touch with fork)
7. Place veg on plate, cover with steak and smother in blackberry demi-glace
