Let me start by saying hello and introduce myself to my fellow BBQ enthusiasts. My name is Rob and today I pulled the trigger on a Bubba 250R. I should be able to pick it up in a couple weeks. I have been cooking on a Bandera for a number of years and I figured it was time to step up to a big boy smoker. I have shopped a lot of rigs and after meeting Lonnie this past weekend at the Nashville BBQ competition and seeing his rig up close, I was sold. Anyway - time to turn my hobby up a notch. My first project in the Bubba will more than likely be a couple turkeys. However, this weekend I have a couple pork bellies that have been curing for 10 days now and I will be cold smoking them in the Bandera (since I recently installed my smoke pistol). Pics of what the 250R looks like.
