ThanX for the feedback, Clarego....... I am also an ebayer (since July 97 w/ 100% positive....all as buyer so far) but I don't put any more stock in ebay sellers than I would any other salesperson.

In this case, their explanation might make more sales $$ for the seller, but it doesn't make much sense to me as a buyer.....Bubba Pucks are sold in quantities of "as many as you'd like". To me as an end user, that gives Bubba Pucks, (AND the buyer 8) ), the edge. Some folks, like me, only use two with a wood puck as the last "pusher" so why would I want to pay an extra $10 for one I don't need?? Other threads have discussed the 2 pucks v.s. 3 pucks issue and I believe that it's just a matter of personal preference, but the "two doesn't do it" explanation to you is simply misleading. Bubba Pucks have always been sold with the third being an option, not a required expenditure.....advantage: Bubba Pucks! (AND the buyer!) ;)

Again, I won't speak to how anyone else comes up with their "original" ideas or runs their business, but I can personally attest to the fact that Bubba Pucks were originally developed as a solution for Bradley smokers and pretty much sold through this forum to fellow smokers, knowing that we're part of the Forum "family" going back to 2003. That has always meant something to me and Chez Bubba and has always dictated how sales and responses were handled. At 57, I know that things change, and I'm sure that the "Bubba Puck market" focus will change now that the inevitable copycat has entered the ring....may the best puck win and may the Bradley smoker/buyer be the ultimate winner....smoke on!

i personally don't use them. but it looks like 2 1/2 have pucks sometimes don't burn on my machine then other times i have exactly 2 left but it is already burning by the time i get to it . The good old question of 2-3 pucks that has nothing to do with me. i personally would buy from the original if i were to ever get them !

For the newbies with the question why we use bubba pucks, here is the vision Kummok probably had when he sliced off his first prototype run.

Notice the puck on the burner (right side) is spent and ready to be replaced.  The puck on the ramp (left side) is not on the burner but because it is touching the puck on the burner, it has already started burning.  The bubba puck will replace the puck on the left if the one on the right should be the last one you are using.


You can see the smoke rising from the puck on the ramp and the right side edge has already burned.  This picture was taken 1 minute before the cycle.

The Bubba Puck, as mentioned above, saves on wasting a wood puck to advance the last puck onto the burner, or move it there by hand.  Kummok invented the product and was sold exclusively through Chez Bubba.  Since Chez has retired, there is another member that has picked up the reigns and now sells them.  They were originally sold as a pair, but I understand you can order them in quantity of 3.  I use 3 so I can push 1 bubba on the burner for the last 20 minutes to burn off the puck residue.  As you can see, if you use wood, you will partially burn the last puck that does not get used so in the long run, the Bubba Pucks will save you money.  They are made from aluminum and there are a few pictures floating around where folks are drilling holes in them to make them even lighter (not necessarily needed).

I ordered mine from the Yard and Pool guys, cause I got a bunch of dead links looking. The ebay people wanted to rape you on shipping charges.

Give me a break.  Do you work for Y&P or just shilling for them?   :-\

I don't mind shilling as long as you are being truthful.

The cheapest source for bubba pucks is by far ebay.

Through their website, Y&P charges $8.95 shipping for a set of (3) pucks, plus the $25.95 price.  Total $34.90 shipped.

I now see that Y&P has started selling pucks on ebay too.  Guess what they charge for shipping through ebay?  $9.95 per set!!!  Thats in addition to the $9.95 price per puck.  So a set of (3) pucks through Y&P on ebay would cost you $39.80!!!

The cheapest source continues to be the regular ebay offering of a set of (3) pucks for $25.99 plus $6 shipping, for a grand total of $31.99 shipped.   

So who is doing the raping on the price of pucks AND shipping?  ::)

Hint:  it ain't the ebay sellers!
