Philideplphia BBQ chef Robert Kolbasowski has been discovered by the Food Network and landed his own TV series, Philly.com reports. The Texas-born resident of Pine Barrens is known to most as Bubba, the owner of Bubba’s BBQ. The restaurant was opened just last fall with his business partner Steve Ehrenhalt.
The series will be called Bubba-Q and is set to premiere at 10:30 p.m. on August 19th. While many details about the show are under wraps at this point, the Food Network released the following description about the new series:
“Bubba is a Texas-born, Texas-raised good ol' boy who lives and breathes Texas barbecue, but for now, you won't find this grill master in the Lone Star State! Bubba and his family have taken Philadelphia by storm, wowing them with their over-the-top custom grill designs. There is no job too big and no idea too outrageous for Bubba and his crew, as the most unexpected items are masterfully transformed into jaw-dropping, fully-functioning grills.”
Once Bubba landed the show, he decided to take time off and entrusted his restaurant to new chef Mike Buhles.
