Big R built his first smoker in the valley in Sulfur Srings, Arkansas, from a refrigerator shell, in 1983. After debuting his hickory smoked meats to family and friends, what began as a hobby soon became a fledgling business. Big R quickly went from smoking his "smokerator" to a larger homemade smoker fashioned from a retired Guys potato chip wagon. This turned smoking meats in the valley to a portable hickory smoked meals on wheels! Thus began Big R's meat route.
