Guide On How To Grill Caribou Perfectly Every Time!

Not everyone is familiar with grilling caribou. If you’ve never grilled this type of meat before, don’t worry – I’m here to help. Follow these steps, and you’ll be a pro in no time.

1. Choose The Right Cut Of Meat:

When it comes to grilling, you can choose a leaner cut of meat. The best cuts for grilling are the tenderloin, loin roast, or sirloin steak. If you are looking for a leaner, you can also go for ground caribou.

2. Season The Meat:

Before you start grilling, be sure to season the meat with salt, pepper, and your favorite spices. It helps to add flavor and prevent the meat from sticking to the grill. For extra flavor, you can also marinate the meat overnight.

3. Preheat The Grill:

Be sure to preheat the grill before you start cooking. It will ensure that the meat cooks evenly on all sides. As a general rule, you’ll want to preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

4. Use Indirect Heat:

When grilling caribou, you’ll want to use indirect heat. This means that you’ll need to place the meat on one side of the grill and the coals on the other. It prevents the meat from burning.

5. Grill The Meat For 4-5 Minutes Each Side:

 Grill the meat for 4-5 minutes per side or until it reaches the desired level of doneness. While grilled caribou is delicious at any temperature, I recommend cooking it to medium-rare or medium.

6. Let The Meat Rest:

Once you’ve grilled the caribou, let it rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting into it. By allowing the juices to spread evenly, your meat will become more tender and flavorful. As tempting as it may be, resist the urge to cut into the meat right away.

7. Serve With Your Favorite Sides:

Caribou goes great with a variety of sides, such as grilled vegetables, grilled potatoes, or a salad. Added bonus – most of these sides can be cooked on the grill as well!

Serve With Your Favorite Sides, And Enjoy!

At this point, your grilled caribou is ready to be served. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! If you have any leftovers, be sure to store them in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

1. On A Salad:

One of the favorite ways to enjoy grilled caribou is on top of a salad. I like to pair it with grilled vegetables, like zucchini and peppers, and light vinaigrette.

2. In A Sandwich:

Another great way to enjoy grilled caribou is in a sandwich. Pile it high with your favorite toppings, like BBQ sauce, grilled onions, and cheese.

3. As An Appetizer:

If you’re looking for a fast and easy appetizer, grilled caribou is the way to go. Cut this into bite-sized pieces and serve with a dipping sauce, like ranch or blue cheese dressing.

4. In A Wrap:

For a light and healthy option, grilled caribou makes an excellent filling for a wrap. I like to add grilled vegetables and a little bit of feta cheese.

5. On Its Own:

Of course, grilled caribou is also delicious on its own.


Caribou is a healthy red meat that is low in fat and calories. It also has more protein than other meats, making it a great choice for people who are looking to add more additional protein to their diet.

And, of course, what could be better than spending a summer evening grilling delicious caribou recipes?
