Former Bubba’s BBQ Pitmaster Scores a Food Network Show

While the ribs and platters continue to flow from Bubba’s Texas BBQ smokers in Fishtown, Bubba himself is no longer manning them. Why? He’s landed his own Food Network show, called Bubba-Q. The show will be about Texas-born Bubba (full name: Robert Kolbasowski) building one-of-a-kind BBQ grills with a staff of friends and family.

The network’s official description says that when Bubba is not building custom smokers, “he runs a catering outfit and cooks for weekly hoedowns at the Hedger House Bar and Grill,” a BBQ joint in the midst of the NJ Pinelands. The Insider confirms with Bubba’s owner Steve Ehrenhalt that Bubba has stepped away from the Frankford Avenue restaurant, in a friendly parting. He is concentrating on the TV show, which is in production now. Bubba-Q premieres on Monday, August 19 at 10:30 PM.
