The Best Just Got Better 

REC TEC Grills introduces the Bull  

For years, the REC TEC RT-680 has been the standard by which other pellet grills were judged, which made REC TEC Grills the fastest growing pellet grill company in the United States. Some companies would be satisfied, but REC TEC Grills continues to strive to get even better.

With the introduction of the Bull (RT-700), REC TEC Grills has truly changed the game. The Bull offers the same precision craftsmanship and quality components that REC TEC Grills' customers have grown accustomed to. In addition, the Bull will offer several upgrades and innovative features that will make it the true “King of the Mountain” in the pellet grill industry.

The Bull features a cooking chamber made entirely of stainless steel, which means you will never have to worry about paint cracking or peeling on your grill. REC TEC Grills will also include an all new Wi-Pellet WiFi Technology on the Bull. This will allow you to control your cook from anywhere using the REC TEC Grills App (available on the App Store and Google Play Store).  The Bull also offers dual meat-probes that plug directly into the grill’s controller, so you'll no longer need an after-market thermometer to monitor your cook. 

 Why look for your next grill when you can buy your last grill with the REC TEC Bull?

Product Reviews

  1. Top quality and top customer service

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    The quality of the product is second to none. For the price and its position in the market, you would be hard-pressed to find anything that compares. There are other great quality smokers on the market but you can expect to pay much much more for them.

    The entire cook surface and body of the "barrel" is stainless steel!

    Hands down best value for your dollar!


  2. Best Smoker I Have Ever Owned

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    This smoker is a beast! It is extremely solid in construction, it holds the temps perfectly and everything I have cooked so far has turned out amazing. My wife absolutely loves it because I do most of the cooking now! I would recommend any REC TEC Grill, but especially the Bull RT-700A


  3. Treager vs Rec Tec

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    I have had and used my Traeger for over 15 years. I have family that has purchased the Traeger. However when my Traeger decided to stop working, I started the search for a new pellet grill. This grill out performs the Traeger hands down. We cook on the Rec Tec on average of about 5-6 days a week year round. This is buy far the best grill out there in this price point.


  4. RT-700

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    very good so far. first pellet grill. great customer service


  5. Love my Rec Tech Bull RT-700!!

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    Had it about 3 weeks now so still learning the ends and outs about it but I am having a blast with it. It is about as simple as can be to use but the quality of your food is great. The big test was the brisket. Did it overnight for 15 hours and used the app and the temp probe to monitor it. All I did was spray cider vinegar every couple of hours. The brisket was as good as any restaurant! Before I bought it I wasn’t sure about the smoke level but at 225-250 you have a great smoke level. Did Ribs last weekend and loved them. I couldn’t be any more satisfied!


  6. so far so good...no complaints

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    1st pellet grill...nicest thing so far is no flair ups...the front folding shelf seems a little cheesy but thats only me being picky...


  7. This grill is simply Amazing. Set it and forget it

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    My new RT 700 will reach temps of 600 degrees. I have cooked Brisket, Chops, Fish and Chicken all with great success! I love this grill.


  8. Well worth a few hundred dollars more than a cheaper made pellet grill

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    Well made and performs as I had hoped it would. Lots of stainless steel so I know it will last a long tine. The app controls are easy to set up and use. Temperature control is spot on. Looked for several months before pulling the trigger. Looked at other brands in person and glad I waited for this one. Others Don't compare.


  9. Great Grill

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    My first experience with a pellet grill, so I'm still learning. Very pleased with the quality of the grill. Really like the WiFi connection where I can monitor the grill, set an alarm on my meat probes.


  10. The Best Present I've Ever Given

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    I bought this grill for my fiance as a present and he was like a kid on Christmas morning! We put it together right away and love using it! The staff at the on-site location were extremely helpful and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend!


  11. Best Bang for your buck

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2018

    I finally pull the trigger after many months of research on a smoker, Rec tec I fell was the Best Bang for your buck . I'm really impressed with the quality and the pricing also the great customer service Couldn't ask for better grill.


  12. Simply AMAZING!

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2018

    Look, there is only one way to make smoking/grilling easier...hire someone else to do it for you. Apart from that, this is as easy as it gets! Set it and walk away. Don't open the lid till the temp probe alarm tells you it's time. In just the 3 weeks that I've had my Bull, I've smoked a leg of lamb and a brisket at the same time, a couple of the best steaks I've ever eaten, some flatbread pizzas, a beer can chicken, Italian sausage w/peppers and onions, and some incredible prime burgers. You cannot find an easier grill to operate and produce such high quality food, PERIOD. The WiFi has worked flawlessly for me, I even changed the temp while at the grocery store. It's really been fun experimenting with different combinations of pellets, but I think my go to is gonna be 50% hickory, 25% apple and 25% mesquite. That mix produced some awesome reverse seared steaks that rivaled anything I've ever gotten in a restaurant. Just do yourself a favor and pull the trigger on one of these bad boys. You'll throw out whatever grill you've been using.


  13. First Pellet Grill - AWESOME

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2018

    We did our due diligence; looked at all the reviews, warranties, videos and decided on the RT680. Had a few questions before we ordered, and found out a new model was coming out, so we patiently waited and ordered the day the 700 came out. BEST DECISION EVER. Smoking is my new hobby. Did a brisket using the Au jus recipe suggested by RECTEC and have already had friends ask me to smoke a brisket for them. I have also done several chickens, turkeys and ribs - all delicious. The grills holds its temperature flawlessly, and all I have to do watch my app so I know when I need to turn my Harley around and head home. I'm going to have to order the Bullseye so I can smoke meat when we camp since the 700 is not quite portable and now I'm spoiled; I don't think I'll ever use gas or charcoal again. Two suggestions: Make sure you buy the cover for it when you get the grill. It's so nice you'll want to make sure it's protected from the elements; and RECTEC - get more active on Pinterest! There are not many RECTEC recipes to be found. I know you have a very active FB page, but I'm not the only one I know who doesn't do FB, and with the latest breach, am not about to start. We need another source for all your great info. Thanks, RECTEC for such a quality product. Definitely worth the wait.


  14. I'm Lovin' it!!

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2018

    I've been using a gas grill for years. After a friend told me about the RecTec I decided to change - and what a change! We were simple grillers: burgers, chicken and steaks. Since getting the RecTec we've done brisket, fajitas, jerkey, pig candy, and roasted nuts. It's the simplicity of your kitchen oven with the taste of a smoker! Every weekend we sit down to decide what new we will try this week, this week it's pork butt!


  15. Absolutely Love it

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2018

    I received this bad boy at the end of March and have used it just about every weekend since. Maintains temperature like a champ. I highly recommend going with the larger Bull. It’s awesome.


  16. Nothing but smiles

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2018

    First off the Rec Tec RT-700 "Bull" arrived exceptionally well packed. No worries of damage. Between the instruction and on-line video it was a breeze to assemble. Followed the burn-in instructions and was ready to grill up 3 racks of St. Louis Ribs using the 3-2-1 method. I'm telling you, nothing but "Happy Campers" in my family. The only problem was there were no leftovers. Second day it was beautiful prime beef tenderloins (reverse sear) that melted in my mouth. I own 6 grills now, 3 charcoal grills, one charcoal smoker, 1 gas grill, and now the Rec Tec RT-700 "Bull". Why did I wait so long.

    Secondly, the customer service is exceptional. I've called once to ask a general question, that was answered immediately by a service rep (that was not reading from a manual). The second time I called for a technical question I figure it out and hung up before the phone was answered. To my amazement, a few minutes later Rec Tec called me back because they notice a missed call from me and wanted to make sure that everything was okay. What company does that these days - Rec Tec that's who.

    Exceptional, exceptionally well build product and customer service who really does appreciate their customers. Looks like I'm sold on the Rec Tec life. THANK YOU!


  17. Highest quality on the market!

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2018

    I bought one of the popular pellet grills at a national hunting store 11/2 years ago. After the control board went out the 2nd time I decided it was time to do some research and get a grill I could depend on, and I'm glad I did!
    The quality of the Rec-Tec grills is light years ahead of the others and they have the warranty to back it. Everything works like a dream. From steaks to ribs or pork butts it cooks perfectly!


  18. REC TEC Grills Bull (RT-700) - Great Grill

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2018

    This grill was packed very well and delivered in great conduction. Assembly was easy with the use of two saw horses - no need to lay it down and later pick it up. The grill is well built, sturdy and strong. It has been used several times and exceeds expectations. The grill reaches it target temperature quickly, maintains its target temperature very well and cooks like a champ. Could not ask for a better grill.


  19. Beyond Expectations!

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    Have been using The Bull 700 for a few weeks now! Easy assembly and this thing is built like a tank. From peach cobbler to 13lb brisket everything has been awesome! I’m very satisfied with the RecTec Bull 700. Thank you!


  20. Rec Tec RT 700 Bull

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    I started looking at pellet grills because my old gas grill was shot and I wanted to cook some real St. Louis ribs. After reviewing the majority of so called top choices, I narrowed my list to four manufacturers; Traeger, Camp Chef, Yoder and Rec Tec. I eliminated Traeger and Camp Chef because I didn’t want to buy from a big box store. I looked hard at the Yoder YS 640, comparing it to the RT 680, and finally the RT 700.
    I ordered my RT 700 with the Pitmaster package and Competition Cart. The Yoder YS 640 loaded with equalilent options is about the same price. I chose the Rec Tec over the Yoder for several reasons: comments from Rec Tec owners about customer service, best in industry warranty, 30 day money back guarantee. The company’s YouTube videos are top notch tutorials as well as entertaining, “see you at the Rec Tec”
    The product workmanship is excellent and assembly was simple. I couldn’t believe that all the bolt holes lined up so no “mechanical persuasion” (hammer) was necessary. The unit goes together quick and easy, TIP watch RT 700 YouTube assembly video first.
    I’m extremely satisfied with my RT 700 and would highly recommend the unit. I’ve had the Bull for two weeks and I’ve cooked St. Louis ribs, a spiral ham, a 14 lb. beef brisket, 2 pork butts, steaks, hamburgers, veggies. I think I’ve cooked on it every night but one since it was delivered.
    Ray & Ron please don’t take the company public unless you keep it like it is!


  21. Love the grill

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    Grill has been great. Love the stainless and the WiFi. Have a traeger as well and the Bulls temperature is much more consistent. My traeger has big fluctuations. Also love that it holds 40lbs in the hopper.


  22. One word (EPIC)

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    my journey to recieving and actually using this RT700 has been a faith testing one ordered it on 3/9/18 it was back order so shipped 11 days later arrived 3/30/18 it came with a big dent in the side damaged in shipping sent it back called rec tec they shipped one out 3 days later shipping was delayed due to train issue as they said in the first delivery then today 4/12/18 when it was to be delivered between 9am-12noon the shipping company forgot to put it on the truck i had to drive about 17miles to the company to pick it up they couldn't explain why it was placed on the truck for delivery but still fill with excitement it didn't matter I would have driven a 100miles for it got home single handedly got it out of the truck and in the house got it setup and fired up and in my over 30yrs of eating chicken hands down hands up hands everywhere this is was the best chicken ever I absolutely believe the makers and designers of the rec tec grill has without a doubt revolutionized the pellet grill industry buy a rec tec grill you will never be disappointed thanks rec tec personals hat's off to you great product.


  23. Amazing pellet grill!!

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    So after countless hour of research i decided on the new rec tec BULL. I was sold on the solid construction which is almost all 304 stainless and the new wifi controller. This is my first pellet gril/smoker after 18yrs of smoking with a stick burner, i was looking for the convince while still getting that great flavor of a stick burner. The ease of use controll and convince is second to none, bark and look of what i have cooked has been amazing. The smoke flavor however is not very pronounced, so im going to try a stronger smoke flaovered pellet and see how it turns out so im still up in the air as far as smoke flavor goes. Other then that it maintains temp within 5 degrees with no problem at all. I did have an issue with one of my meat probes out ot the box, put it in a cold pork shoulder and it read 600 plus degress, call and let them know and had a new replacement in 3 days so customer service is 3 stars. The only other issue i had was the shirt that came with my order was supposed to be a 3x and i recived a 2x which is unfortunately not my size. Oh and if you do have an issue call they dont respond to online contact forms that are filled out and sent or to feed back on there app. Sent both in after calling about the meat probe issue and have not heard anything from either electronic contact. Overall best smoker/grill ( 5 stars on the BULL ) i have ever onwned and will definitely purchase from rec tec again.


  24. RT-700 is a steal!!

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    Ok when you get a full stainless steel grill/smoker you know the company selling it cares about their customers.
    This pit is great for the beginner and the pro! If you’re looking to get into smoking meats, bbq competitions or just having a quality pit in the backyard I would highly suggest getting the RT-700.


  25. Leaves Traeger in the stone age!!!!

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    I purchases the Bull to replace my 4 year old Traeger which just died and only had a 3 year warranty. Everything from the hardware that holds the Bull together is far superior to the Ttaeger. The temperature stays almost dead on the set number constantly which also is much better than my Traeger experience. So happy I chose Rec Tec!!!!


  26. THE FIST PELLET SMOKER WORTH THE WAIT

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    After reading review after review of happy customers and seeing the Facebook groups of die hard Rec Tec fans I went with the 700. it was a great decision I couldn't be happier with this smoker.


  27. Easy Peasy

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2018

    1st pellet grill I ever owned. Really impressed with quality of RT700 and custom made grill cover as well. Initial build-up & seasoning was pretty simple. Cooking on it is even easier - simply turn it on, set the temp you want, kick back and sip a few cold ones until your meat is done. Meat comes out with nice color, nice bark and very moist. The only slight disappointment I have is smoke ring & smoke flavor infusion is less than what I expected - not as much as conventional offset firebox wood smoker but so much easier.


  28. RT-700

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2018

    I have been able to use this smoker twice so far and it worked perfectly. Kept an even temperature. The thick cut bacon and turkeys came out great. Amazing quality in this price range.


  29. Incredible Temperature Stability

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    I've been a Long time Traeger user that wanted to upgrade.
    I researched grills for several months and Rec Tec always was rated either first or second so I decided to make the switch and purchased the Bull 700. I was completely astounded by how stable the temperature was on the unit over my first 16 hour cook. The unit comes up to temp quickly and doesn't vary once at temperature. The large hopper made it so I didn't have to continually add pellets and the new WiFi controller allowed me to monitor my cook while attending an event my daughter was participating in. The quality of my food was excellent. The only problem I've had was getting it through the gate in my back yard because the smoker is big (had to take out a couple of boards). Totally happy with my purchase and the customer service has been excellent.


  30. My Bull

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    This is my first pellet smoker or smoker of any kind. I've used charcoal and gas for the last 30 Years, and now I'm looking for something more convenient. I received The bull 2 weeks ago and used it for the first time last night. It was amazing, reverse sear on some porterhouse steaks. These were the best, and the temperature was spot on. I know that it's my first cook, but I'm very happy.


  31. amazing value for the money, nothing even comes close

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    Great pellet grill, Heavy quality stainless at the barrel so no repainting ever needed, burning box and cover along with the drip tray , grill grates and pellet cover are all stainless and sturdy built for the long haul for sure. Holds a very steady temperature with the PID controller no hunting or major temperature swings when you briefly open the lid. mobile app for the grill and 2 built in temperature probes.I haven't had a need for any customer service but it is well known they are tops in the industry and you can speak directly with the owners as well.Great price point when you compare it to Everyone Else product. My only complaint is the legs are a little shaky and recommend the comp cart but if your not rolling it around and keeping on your deck it is more than enough, otherwise there are a few inexpensive hacks out there to make it easier for moving around a lot. With that being said this is my very minor knock. This is a well build good controlled temperature pellet grill everything else to me is just a bonus but I would absolutely buy it again .I'm very impressed with my 700 Bull and everyone that has seen it wants one .No regrets.


  32. Best Damn Grill in the Land!

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    I am a huge Buckeye fan. They say we have the best damn band in the land. This is how I feel about my new Rec Tec 700. Does a great job!


  33. all expetatins met

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2018

    had a kamado before. this is the first pellet smoker ive owned. the grill was easy to set up everything fit perfectly. first cook was a pork shoulder. brought it to movie night at my cigar club. everyone was impressed especially since ive never made a pork butt before. Even the texans stated it was first rate. im a total fan


  34. first pellet grille

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2018

    Better than advertised!!!!! Easiest cooking i have ever done. Takes flovor to another level. Cooked venison meatloaf last night using a Rec Tec recipe, was absolutely delicious. Happy to be a Rec Tec family member.


  35. Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to make great food.

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2018

    After doing extensive research I had decided to purchase the RT-680 right about the time the new RT-700 was announced. Even with the wait and extra cost, the WiFi capability with built in probes was worth it. We have cooked fish, ribs, brisket, pork chops, chicken, and a full turkey and everything comes out great. Love this grill, so easy to use and it makes me look like a master chef every time. I would highly recommend the RT-700 to everyone.


  36. Taking getting use to

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2018

    Last smoker was a Big Green Egg, had to manage temp, and feed fuel myself.....labor intensive. Nice to put in a bag of pellets set and let the Rec Tec do its thing. Was expecting more smoke till another Rec Tec owner online explained the difference in smoke, First batch of Baby backs great flavor, needed a little more time,did not fall off the bone.....but we will get it next time.


  37. Great Emergency Oven Too!

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2018

    After months of research, comparison with various different brands, and reading hundreds of reviews, I finally ordered the RT-700 Bull with the Grand Champion bundle and received it about two weeks ago.

    My son and I assembled it in about 2 hours on the same afternoon we received it. Outstanding quality on all components, and went together easily.

    We did the initial burn in for an hour at 400 degrees, then smoked some pork belly for a couple hours to get some seasoning. Then went to Costco and bought 2 pork shoulders (13 lbs combined). Rubbed them with some EVO and pork rub, then smoked them at 225 degrees, for about 16 hours to an internal temp of 203 degrees (love those probes). Took em off the smoker, wrapped tightly, and let them rest in a cooler for 4 hours.

    Took them out and started the pulling process, and my wife was eating chunks right off the cutting board, raving about how juicy and flavorful it was. She actually said she was impressed. That is not something I hear often after 36 years of marriage!

    Since then, we've done some Papa Murphys Pizza, and that was great too. The weather has been poor since so we haven't gotten a chance to use it again, but spring/summer will arrive in Wisconsin soon.

    Now to the headline. I was making up a big pan of Lasagna this morning, and I turned on the oven to preheat it at 350 degrees, while I assembled the layers of lasagna.
    I realized after about 20 minutes of assembling the Lasagna, that the oven hadn't lit yet. Tried it a couple more times, but no joy. So I'm stuck, big pan of lasagna, and no oven.

    I turned on the Bull, set it to 350 degrees, and put the Lasagna in the smoker, covered with aluminum foil to protect the cheese on top. 45 Minutes later, based on my app on the smart phone, I pulled off the foil, and continued to cook for another 15-20 minutes to brown up the cheese. It worked perfectly. Lasagna saved, and in the meantime, I had a chance to diagnose the issue with the oven, and get it fixed too. Lunch was 30 minutes later than planned, but hey it's Saturday, so relax.

    I am really impressed with Rec Tec, the company and the products, and the people. The product, the people, and the after sale support have been everything they promised.


  38. 1st pellet grill I’ve owned and overly impressed

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2018

    Grill arrived without the comp cart, called and RecTec sent 1 out the same day, great service.
    I live in Michigan and have only been able to do 3 cooks, all less than 40 degrees outside temp and the grill has held within 2 degrees of the set temp, the WIFI is awesome too, have not touched the control since I linked it. Can’t wait for warmer weather to really enjoy the experience.
    Anyone looking for a great grill this is it.
    The Bull rules.


  39. Hesitant to buy, but glad I did! Exceeded all my expectations!

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    I was very hesitant to buy a pellet smoker/grill without ever seeing or touching one in person. I had several friends recommend Green Mountain Grills and Traeger Grills, but after doing a lot of online research and talking to the RecTec personnel several times, I decided to purchase the RT-700 "Bull".

    I ordered the Grand Champion bundle because I was interested in several of the accessories, especially the cold smoke box. The RT-700 offered a lot of great features and accessories for the cost, that the other manufactures couldn't provide. The RecTec customer service reputation and the six-year warranty also played a major role in my decision. Not to mention, that I had 30 days to try it out and return it if I was unhappy. I've had the unit for less than two weeks and I'm very glad that I bought it. Needless to say that I won't be returning it!

    The unit and its accessories arrived with no damage. During assembly, I only needed help with setting the unit upright and tightening a couple of hard to reach screws. The rest of the assembly I did alone. The instruction manual was a little vague, but between it and the online assembly video, the unit was easy enough to assemble. The RecTec RT-700 is very beefy and seems to be as tough as a "Bull'. (Pardon the puns!)

    The grill size is very roomy. The temperature regulation was excellent. I was able to smoke three full racks of baby-back ribs and three 4-pound pastrami briskets on the main grill, while smoking three salmon fillets in the cold smoker box. All at the same time! And they all tasted great!!! I have so many more recipes to try, but so far, the RecTec RT-700 has exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend it!!!

    The only possible negative that I can come up with is that RecTec forgot to send one of the bundle accessories. After double checking all of the shipping boxes, I called them and they immediately shipped one to me with absolutely no hassles. Their customer service has also exceeded my expectations.


  40. best smoker3

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    I did a lot of research before buying my first smoker, and went with the rectec after reading customer service reviews, now that being said I've owned my rectec mini for over 2 years and not one problem. So I decided to upgrade to the bull rt700 and so glad I did this thing is badass!!! And well worth every penny.


  41. Quality, Price, Service

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    I researched what grill to buy for months. I do not regret my decision to buy the RT700 one bit. This grill is amazing! The quality was evident during assembly, this thing is solid! The temperature control has been spot on, never fluctuating more than 3-4 degrees. And I guarantee you will never find another company that provides the kind of customer service that Rec Tec does. They simply go above and beyond to satisfy its customers. Great Smoke Flavor - Great Temp Control - Great Customer Service


  42. so far fantastic

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    Had a traeger for 11 years and really liked it. Bought this 1 month ago and love it. Very satisfied so far.


  43. Sweet Smoking Goodness

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2018

    This grill is awesome! Cooks and operates as expected, Build quality is top shelf. Only a few things I would recommend to make this 5 stars for me. There is no cord storage solution with the grill, so your cord just hangs around, I would like to have seen allen head or torx heads used for the screws, and would like to see some improvements in the app for the controller.... ability to save cooks, store cook data etc. All of these things are minor annoyances and would not stop me from recommending this grill to anyone.


  44. New Owner of the RT 700 Grill

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2018

    I did a lot of research on pellet grills and Rec Tec seemed to have rave reviews everywhere I looked. I decided on the RT-700 (the Bull) and couldn't be happier. It was delivered to my door on a pallet and the grill was expertly packed to prevent any damage.
    Assembly is well thought out and even the nuts, bolts and washers (all stainless steel) are laid out in clear plastic tray which makes them much easier to locate.
    The construction of the grill is simply amazing. Very heavy duty stainless steel components, top quality wheels and the finish is flawless. This grill is literally built like a tank.
    I've done four cooks so far....five racks of pork ribs, three tri-tips, two racks of beef ribs and a smoked turkey. I'm doing a pork loin today. Everything I've done has turned out perfect and with NO EFFORT!
    The grill is large and can hold six full pork racks, or a couple large turkeys, or whatever else you want to smoke.
    Six months ago, I bought a new Weber Genesis II bbq. It was expensive and a nice unit but now I find out this RecTec is going to replace it. The build quality of the Rec Tec is night and day better the Webber aswell.
    BTW, the wifi feature and app for this grill is wonderful. You can see the temperature and control the settings from your smart phone. I was at a restaurant having lunch with my nephew showing him how my ribs were doing... lol.
    In conclusion, I totally endorse this grill and my sister and her husband are going to get one aswell. Buy it!


  45. Best pellet smoker on the market

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2018

    I’ve owned three other pellet smokers and cooked on many more. The new stainless model is built better than anything I’ve seen on the market. You can feel the quality from weight of the handles to the porcelain coated lid. There are several other brands with comparable cookers, but none come close to matching the value of Rec Tec. My only suggestion is to redesign the smoker box or handles so that the door of smoker box will open if owners would rather turn their lid handles outside instead of inside.


  46. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2018

    I will start with the one negative, the app disconnects all the time on both my Android and iPhone. That being said, closing and opening and it always reconnects right away. I waited to write my review until I had a chance to cook a few different items and everything has come out great.

    As far as low and slow, I have made a couple pork butts, a shoulder clod, a couple chuck roasts, and a ton of ribs. Grill maintained temp perfectly even though the temperature outside was in the high teens and winds were gusting up to 25mph.

    Higher temp cooking I have made some pizzas, burgers, and chicken wings. I made a pizza and wings in the oven at the same time and every guest preferred the Rec Tec. The Bull did take a good amount of time to get up to 400 F but again, temp was in the mid 20s and wind gusts were 20 - 25 mph so I was happy with the performance. Once the grill got to temp it did not fluctuate by more than a couple degrees.

    Setup is easy, I did it by myself and it took maybe 90 minutes. I did get help adding the cold smoke box and I would not recommend doing that alone. The second set of hands was a huge help.

    I went with the Grand Champion Bundle and would recommend it to everyone. I have made my own rubs and sauces for years but the rubs and sauces from Rec Tec are great and the Grill Grates and front folding shelf are a must in my mind. I have not had to use the extra interior shelves yet but I know they will come in handy this summer when I am cooking for 20-30 people.


  47. I Love This Grill

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2018

    I love this grill and the Rec Tec life style, compared to a family members pellet grill, the Rec Tec is a far superior grill, the Rec Tec is a steal for the money you pay for it.


  48. Smoking Sensation

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2018

    Very Very pleased with the RT700 Stainless Steel construction well fabricated, electronics and mechanicals are well designed and are simple in operation reducing failures and delays in operation. I would recommend that in the base where the legs attach that this needs to be a slip fit not a slop fit as the legs are wobbly even after fasteners are torqued.


  49. "Hell yeah!"

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2018

    "Hell yeah!" These were the first words that came out of my mouth as soon as I hit the On button on my smartphone and heard my new Bull light up!!! How did nobody come up with this sooner and thank you Rec Tec for doing so!

    My first days on the Bull have been at or below 35 degrees with rain and wind , it didnt care . It stays true to temp and didnt burn more than 1/4 pellets in over 10 hour total run time . My Weber gas grill would had burned almost a tank and blown out in the wind trying to cook down low.


    This grill makes anybody a pitmaster. You have at the tips of your fingers instant temps from two on board food probes ,no lifting the lid or misplacing the temp probe. Hellyeah!!

    Lastly the customer support is spot on. When I got my Bull the freight driver said they lost my pellets and told me to call the shipper .So I did and before the truck left down the street I was getting a email confrimation that another order of pellets was on its way with no questions asked.

    I'm blown away at this grill and if you have any doubts go online. Where everyone has no holds barred opions and see how many negitive ones you find about this product. I tried and couldnt find one! So i had to buy it.




  50. Very, Very Nice Grill.

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    I have cooked on my new RT-700 twice now and you can't beat the convenience of this grill. Both of my cooks have been low and slow smoking (225°) and had great smoke flavor. Can't wait to cook more!


  51. Glad I made the right choice!

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    After seeing commercials on television for other brands of wood pellet grills, my curiosity was peaked. I immediately started to research the entire marketplace of wood pellet grills. Ultimately, based on my research and feedback from other people providing reviews and information regarding the grill they purchased, I ordered The Bull from Rec-Tec.

    I absolutely made the right choice. The grill arrived sooner than anticipated which was a plus. It was easy to assemble and after the initial burn in, I immediately put two whole roasting chickens, a 10 pound pork loin and a tray of homemade mac & cheese on it for its initial voyage. We had invited about a dozen friends over to experience the first round of food coming off of the new grill. Needless to say at least four of the families that joined us that first night, have followed up and ordered their own Rec-Tec wood pellet Grill. Over the last week, we have grilled steaks using the searing kit which turned out to be what my son calls the best steaks he has ever had. I would love to claim that it is the amazing abilities of his dad, the chef – but I know it’s entirely the grill’s award, not mine.

    The wireless function that connects to the app is amazing. It allows you to monitor everything from a significant distance or from inside your warm house on those 20° days.

    One of our boy scout troop’s assistant scout master was in attendance on the initial cooking of the pork loin and chickens. The pork loin turned out so fantastic, we intend to use the grill to make over 200 pounds of pork loin for our upcoming Boy Scout pork and sauerkraut dinner fundraiser.

    Next on our list for smoking and grilling, eastern black bear hind quarter, a moose rump roast and steelhead from New York State. We can’t wait. Everything is better on this grill than other ways that we have cooked these items in the past. The only concern I had prior to cooking on this grill was the ability for it to get to 500° In the cold north east winter. Since receiving the grill, our outdoor temperatures have ranged between 5° and 40° outside, each time we have called on the grill to get to 500°, it has within a matter of minutes and held the temperature consistent throughout the cooking process. Just last night, a friend of ours that has a different brand name pellet Grill has said they are posting it on craigslist for sale immediately and have already ordered the Rec-Tec grill as its replacement. This is because they had issues getting that specific grill above 300°.

    If you are thinking about getting a wood pellet Grill, look no further. The Rec-Tec grill is absolutely the best choice in this space and price point.


  52. Best way to cook outside ever

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    I am new to wood pellet cooking and so far feel this is the only way to cook food outside. The RT-700 has exceeded my expectations in all ways possible. I have cooked several types and varieties of meats so far and they all have been excellent. I highly recommend Rec-Tec grills to anyone who is thinking about exploring wood pellet cooking. I give Rec-Tec's customer service and their grills 5 out of 5 STARS!


  53. Great build quality and heat retention

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    The Bull was easy to put together and is a solid build with the welcome additional stainless steel additions and wireless control.

    I cooked a brisket after seasoning for the first time in 20 degree weather with 25 mph winds and the Bull maintained temperature. I was able to adjust temperature in the Rec Tec app (make sure you are connected to 2.4ghz instead of 5ghz) and I was able to control it from a few miles away while my wife was at home watching it.

    I used the grill grates on the flat side for a pizza and I flipped them over for some Juicy Lucy burgers and they work as advertised.

    Highly recommended and many great forums for help.


  54. the Bull is the best!

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2018

    I have owned 2 traeger grills and my new Rec Tec Bull is by far superior. Love the WiFi, construction, and the warranty! The best purchase I’ve made in a long time!


  55. RT-700 - Solid Smoker

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2018

    I received my RT-700 just shy of 3 weeks ago, and have already had rave reviews on the brisket, ribs, pulled pork, burgers and chicken I've made on it.

    Can't say enough about my experience with the company.
    The 700 is 'overbuilt', made from heavy duty parts that I'm counting on lasting a long time. Yes, it's a little more money than some of it's competitors, but I'm very happy with my purchase.


  56. Very Happy - Just as Advertised

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2018

    I've had my RT-700 for a few weeks now and it has been great. Everything has been just as advertised. It was packed well, assembly was easy, and the food has been amazing.

    My only real complaint has nothing to do with the grill. The iPhone app works, but it has some quirks that I am sure will be fixed through updates.

    I would definitely recommend this product. 100% happy so far.


  57. So easy to use I feel guilty...

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2018

    My BBQ obsession began about 6 years ago with a hand me down Weber Smoky Mountain but my appetite quickly outgrew the capacity. I then moved up to a hand built ugly steel drum with a Cyber Q controller which served me well until the last year or so. I began researching all kinds of cookers from gravity feeds, stick burners, etc. but I kept coming back to pellet cookers and the Rec Tec especially because I was also in dire need of a new grill as well. Lucky for me my research took long enough that when I was ready to pull the trigger the RT-700 was unveiled and although it extended my wait I couldn’t be happier now that it is on my porch. The ease of operation is as advertised, just open your Rec Tec app from anywhere it is warming up. I will say there is a weird feeling (maybe guilt) after years of cleaning out, setting up, lighting and preparing my old smokers to get them ready for the meat when all I do now is grab my phone to get the Bull running. Grilled foods at higher temps have a nice wood fired flavor to them and so far my low / slow foods have a nice level of smoke flavor as compared to my old cookers.

    While I’m only a few weeks in I would definitely say I made the right choice. Not a hint of buyers remorse here...


  58. Heaven for smokers

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2018

    put it together (easy). cooked a 7lb prime rib (3 hours). cut into 1" thick steaks, turned up the heat and seared both sides... Like I said "Heaven for Smokers.
    Love it


  59. Best Grill Ever!

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2018

    Long time smoker and BBQ competer. Did my research and glad I made the right decision. Had it for less than a month and have done 10+ cooks of everything to test. Everything’s turned out perfect. I will never own another grill.


  60. Couldn't be happier

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2018

    I've had the RT-700 about 2 weeks now and I cooked with it 8 times. It grilled steaks and chops like champ. The meat a great smoke flavor and was cooked perfectly. I also did 2 longer cooks brisket and ribs. It knocked those out of the park. Beautiful smoke rings great flavor and good nights sleep for me. You couldn't ask for more than that in my opinion. I've also used it to grill asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and mushrooms, all came out great. Lastly I did burgers and dogs, as you may have guessed, awesome. I really couldn't be happier with this grill.


  61. RT-700

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2018

    The quality of the Rec Tec smoker/grill was an amazing find. You guys nailed it with this one, now I can honestly say it jas stepped up my game, feeling like a pro every time I use it. Thank you Rec Tec for such a high quality smoking machine...


  62. AMAZING Customer Service is TRUE TRUE, TRUE!

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2018

    The 700 is my 1st ever pellet grill purchased after about a year of research. I've rated it 5 stars based on quality of build along with the superior service of Rec-Tec. I'm still a novice at actual use and I only have experience with gas & charcoal grills to compare, My main concern during research was how it would perform grilling (searing) steaks etc. I prefer to own only one grill and I'm very happy with the results using a searing kit on the 700.
    About Rec-Tec and (AMAZING) customer service... everything you've heard is TRUE. After receiving (earlier than I expected) my 700 and assembling it... a pretty simple process... it wouldn't start up. A call to Rec-Tec connected me with General Manager Ben Lesshafft who talked me through a series of diagnostics. Long story short... the 700 had a defective controller. Ben had me switch some things around to make the grill function while a new controller was quickly shipped out. I smoked my 1st pork shoulder the next day. The new controller arrived a day later along with VERY GENEROUS compensation for my troubles. After a simple install everything worked as designed.
    Going on 40 years as a restaurateur... I'm responsible daily for customer service on our part and almost daily with customer service from vendors. We attribute our success in great part to our high level of service and choose vendors on based on theirs. I can honestly say that Ben at Rec-Tec provided possibly the best customer service I've ever experienced.
    Now I just need to perfect my pellet grill technique... I will gladly consume any mistakes along the way!


  63. Now this is a smoker

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2018

    I love this smoker. I had a Smoke Daddy conversion hopper kit on an offset stick burner before this. I liked it a lot. The 700 beats it in every way. There is more Smoke flavor in the finished foods now. And the temp is very easy to control. Had a few issues with the WIFI at first, but RECTEC worked with me and got it working. Very happy. Would buy again in a heartbeat.


  64. Smoking made easy!

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2018

    I've been a professional chef over 25 years used all kind of smokers, and all I can say is WOW! No problem with ordering delivered in a timely manner packing of the smoker was great and intact. Missing nothing. Best you can buy in my opinion. Love the WiFi. Just connect set temperature, prep your meats and your ready to go. Thank you Rec Tec! Keep up the great work. I have recommended your product to all my friend's. Smoking a prime rib this Saturday :)


  65. Best Grill Ever

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    This grill is great extremely easy to use and the temp does not swing at all the most I’ve seen is a 2 degree swing. Great grill I would recommend to anyone and everyone.


  66. Best Pellet smoker

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    The RT-700 is the best quality smoker in this price range with a lot of extras the prior model did not have. I am really enjoying the stainless housing and dual probe upgrade. The unit is holding temperature within 5 degrees across the large smoking surface. I was going to go with the smaller unit but am glad I didn’t as I filled it up my third time using it. It’s worth every penny and then some.


  67. I never new grilling could be so easy!

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    You can't go wrong with this grill. I had it one week and smoked a pork butt and a corned beef pastrami to perfection. Easy to use and no constant checking coals and temperature. Set it and see you in the morning.


  68. big improvment

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    As a long time Rectec fan this is really a giant upgrade and something I was waiting for!!
    First of all the stainless barrel is going to make the grill last so much longer and the PID controller is fantastic with temperature offset adjustment and a really nice display along with Wi-Fi enabled control. If you were on the fence before as far as which smoker to buy, I think it’s a no-brainer that Rectec is a leading smoker in the world of smokers!!


  69. lives up to its reputation

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    Absolutely 100% completely satisfied with my bull. Temos are easily obtained and extremely accurate. Food has fantastic results, and completely effortless. My only request would be a slightly longer cord, and the ability to switch out pellets. But truely i cant imagine owning any other brand.

    Cant wait to get a bullseye next


  70. Envy of the neighborhood!

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    Late last year, I was given the go-ahead by my wife to upgrade my smoker (T-word) that I have been using for 5 years,but not really happy with.. I started looking at the Rec Tecs and was ready to pull the trigger and buy one, but decided to call and ask a few questions. After speaking with one of the nicest people from customer service for about 15 minutes, he told me that since I have experience with a smoker and wanted certain features, I should wait a little while longer and see what "surprises" Rec Tec had coming out in the spring. I am so glad I did!!
    RT-700 Smoker arrived a few weeks ago, and right from the start, I could tell that this smoker was built to last. The stainless steel used throughout is great--no more rusty drip pan. All the little features are a true sign of a well thought out smoker.
    I have used the smoker a few times in the last 2 weeks and must say the accuracy of the temperatures are absolutely amazing.! With my old (T-word) smoker,I would get anywhere from 10-20 degree swings while smoking. With the Rec Tec, the temp held exactly at what I had set. The Wifi feature is great when you are entertaining and have to keep track of your temps from another part of the house. I smoked corned beef , and all the fixings, for St Pat's day and our neighbors said it was the best they have ever eaten!! I know that the consistency of the temperature played a significant role in the meat coming out so perfectly done. Now my neighbors have smoker envy!!
    I am so glad I waited for the new models to come out. I could have been sold an older model when I called last year, but the customer service representative stepped up to the plate and made a suggestion to me that I will appreciate for years to come.
    Thank You


  71. Amazing!

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    Construction of the Bull A+
    Operation A+
    Overall A+

    The Bull is probably one of my best purchases ever! Worth every penny! Thanks Rec-tec!


  72. no other grill made compares to rec tec

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    bought the rt700 on the recomendation of a family member who had bought the same grill previously.I could not be any more pleased. this is a quality made ,well engineered product
    The customer service people are second to none, and are another plus when you purchase a rec tec product.....
    .


  73. New pellet grill owner

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2018

    After extensive research, I purchased the RT700 and I am impressed. This smoker grill is so easy to use, REC TEC has really done their homework designing this product. I have done beef roast, bacon, chicken, ribs, cheese, fish, and pork. I am a happy customer !!!


  74. glad I bought a RECTEC

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    After playing with the competitors smokers in the stores, I’m glad I choose the RECTEC. The smoker is steadier and heavier then the rest and the 40lb hopper goes for awhile...


  75. This is Bull!

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    This grill is built like a Bull! I am a happy customer. Cooks like a champ, holds temp, WiFi, and food tastes excellent. What else do you need? Get it......


  76. Giddy Up

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    I waited and waited and waited to buy a Rec Tec...I have a terrific gas grill mind you — that has its place — but doesn’t do what this bad ass grill does. I cooked ribs this past weekend — 6 hours at 250. Plenty of rich smoke. I monitored temperature from my phone — and it was usually 250 or 251...crazy accurate. Ribs were Delicious. Grill came well packaged and was relatively easy for a non-handy person to put together. Note though that I put this together myself — and a second person would be helpful — as this is not an insignificant piece of steel...meaning it is HEAVY. This grill is going to be a blast — as it is too easy to use and get great results. I was stupid for waiting. STUPID. I have not needed customer service but it was nice getting the owners mobile phone numbers. Giddy up and order your grill — you can thank me later. And no, I don’t work for these guys and they’re not family — albeit I’d adopt one of them if they’d take my crazy sister....but that’s another story unrelated to my bad ass grill...


  77. Best Investment Yet

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    Having been an avid “Grillmaster” for years and having owened every kind of smoker made, including a 16’ stick burning trailer... did I mention that I had a booming BBQ Catering business... this is the best smoker yet. The only closest smoker was my 16’ footer. I smoked 6 racks of ribs on my first go around with this beast, in March 2018, in Jersey... and if you have been following the weather, you know that’s no small feat. The ribs came out better than any other rib I have ever cooked on a smoker. The Rec Tech kept the heat and it kept the heat steady... Suprisingly, it used less than a 1/4 of the hopper of pellets, for a roughly 8 hour cook... (heated it up for about an hour and left the ribs on for a little extra, ‘cause they cane right out of the fridge).

    As far as the heat output on this grill, I maxed it out Alford a little over an hour and got it well over 500 degrees. I love my new Rec Tech!!!


  78. Best pellet grill on the Market

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    Far superior to any other pellet grill available today. Great customer service, great products and amazing people.


  79. absolutely love my 700

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    Coming from a Cajun Grill, this is my first smoker and find it wonderful. Since receiving it, I have smoked 3 briskets, 2 lamb roasts, 2 rack of lambs, countless pizzas and a few other items. It has gone beyond my expectations of how it would be. Although it wasn’t a necessity, I installed some high temp foam on the lid to keep the smoke in. That’s my only gripe about it is that there wasn’t a gasket on it. Other than that, the build quality is top notch. I fully recommend it to anyone wanting a smoker


  80. ABSOLUTLY top of the line!

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    I have never been more impressed with a product. This thing is extremely well-built, and incredibly well-engineered. There are some big names in wood pellet smokers out there, and I don't have to mention them for anyone reading this to know who they are. If Rec Tec isn't at the top of that list yet, they will be soon!

    I personally bought the RT - 700. When I grill or smoke or barbecue, I like to have leftovers for days. I also like to entertain so I wanted a grill / smoker that I could put a pile of meat on. And I wanted the cold smoke box as well.

    The product itself is incredible, and their latest products, along with the PID controller, are Wi-Fi capable. I work in the maintenance industry, and anything heat-related has a PID controller on it, because they're accurate and dependable. And it works exactly like it supposed to on this wood pellet smoker as well. And I have to say, while it isn't a necessity, it was rather entertaining and comforting, to be able to watch the smoker temperature remain steady, and the internal temperature of my tenderloins that I had in the smoker this weekend, from the meat probes that were stuck in them, while I was at the movie theater with the family. Don't worry, I was in the very back row and the brightness on my phone was turned down very low. LOL but yes I could see the smoker remained at a constant temperature and I could watch the internal meat temperature slowly climbing. And while I didn't need to, I could have also adjusted the smoker temperature from my phone.

    Most important to me, as if that wasn't already enough, their customer service was what convinced me 100% that I was going with the right product and company. First of all before I spend this kind of money on anything I do my research. I couldn't find anything negative said about the company, the product, or their customer service. And in fact I ran across various comments and forums that talked about the excellent customer service, which is probably one of the most important things to me. You can have the world's greatest product, but if a company can't stand behind it or support you, I don't want anything to do with it. In trying to make a decision, I generated several questions on the morning I was getting ready to call in an order for my RT- 700 even before they were available yet. I wound up calling Rec Tec 5 times that morning. Each time I called somebody different answered the phone. Additionally each time I called, the person who answered was very friendly, took their time and made sure I understood the answer to my question completely. And after the fifth time, I apologize for bothering them so much that morning, and they reassured me no bother at all, to call anytime. So I placed my order and was like a kid at Christmas time waiting on Santa Claus.

    Jumping ahead, after using my Rec Tec pellet smoker the first time, I had some questions about technique. I was used to the old manual smokers, where I built the small charcoal fire in the bottom, and then fed water soaked hickory bark in the bottom of it for about 4 hours. The meat always turned out excellent! I will say for me and probably anybody else who is used to smoking that way, that there was a little bit of a learning curve about temperature and time, and wrapping in foil or not. It was Sunday and I didn't want to bother the guys, but I left an inquiry on their website. The following Monday morning I got a call from Adam, who spoke with me extensively on the phone, about various temperatures and techniques that worked well. And specifically regarding ribs he talked to me about the 3 2 1 technique. You'll have to ask him about it. But I was telling a friend of mine everything that I've said here, and more, and he was chuckling and impressed, that Adam called me back and spent 15 minutes on the phone with me talking about barbecuing. That's customer service!

    If you haven't figured it out by now, I'll tell you. If you invest in a Rec Tec, you will not regret it. These guys are tops!

    This was my first RecTec. The 700 is amazing. The WiFi controller is on point. There will be absolutely no regrets when purchasing this grill. So far all my cooks have turned out fantastic. Best purchase ever!


  82. Superlative, the only word needed to describe this product.

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2018

    Having done extensive research on nearly a dozen pellet grills, choosing the Rec Tec 700 was a no-brainer. Superior materials used in the manufacturing of this product as well as the design and function makes this grill tops in its field. This was all validated after firing 'The Bull' up for the first time. Results were spectacular. The cold smoker box is just plain sick, keeping temps down in the 88 degree range. I have absolutely nothing but praise for the customer service the folks at Rec Tec provide. This group of dedicated pros are here to stay.

    This is hands down the highest quality grill I have ever used, customer service is even better.

    Went with the BULL based on the performance of the 680, customer service reputation, and value. Have had it a couple weeks now and it has performed as advertised. Best part is being able to leave the house and monitor your long cooks through the WiFi controller.

  88. new rt700

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2018

    This is my second Rec Tec grill. First one was the rt 680 . After I saw the rt700 I decided it was time for an upgrade . I have owned the 680 for 6 years . Great unit . Many, many hours of cooking on it. Sold it for about half of what I paid for it new, so was happy about that too. Purchased the bull in feb and received it in March ahead of schedule. So far very happy. Did the burn in then, next day cooked a full rack of spare ribs and a trimmed brisket flat. Turned out great. Much better temperature control than my 680. Less swings in temp . Was 28 degrees and windy out and held temp great. WiFi worked good too but then I changed location of grill and I think it is too far from my router. Going to try a WiFi range extender next . Looking forward to many more cooking trials with it.


  89. WOW

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2018

    I thought that the 680 was an awesome smoker and it is. But the Bull 700 is even better! Put it together last Saturday and smoked on Sunday. The Bull hands down is the best smoker/grill on the market today! Control panel is simple and easy while at the same time very high tech. Shut down mode is 3 stages... Temp-Fan- Aug. But it all made sense after having it explained.
    But most of all, the crew at Rec Tec is always so helpful and kind. They are the best!
    Chicken turned out great buy the way. Being retired with the Bull is the best!


  90. Awesome grill/ smoker

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2018

    Been reading reviews for months and finally decided to order the new RT-700. Was a little scary due to this being a new model but I pulled the trigger and could not be more happy. Received mine yesterday and put it together last night. I did the initial burn in this morning then cooked wings for lunch and meatloaf for dinner. I thought everything was great but more importantly the wife thought is was outstanding as well. We all know if mommy is happy everyone is happy. Going to cook a few racks of ribs tomorrow - can't wait..... This is so much easier than my previous smoker and cleanup is a breeze - just brush the rack and swap out the foil on the trey below it.


  91. The Real Deal

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2018

    I did my homework & decided the RT-680 was the best on the market for all the right reasons. Only thing I could complain about was the Georgia Red lid. Called to ask if they would ever offer color options. Was told to hang on for a couple weeks. Low & behold 2 weeks later the RT-700 is debuted with more stainless, 2 wired meat thermometers, free shipping, wi fi w/ phone app AND a Black Lid. Ordered mine w/ all the accessories. Delivery was quick & assembly was a breeze. Today is showtime. Smoker quickly achieved desired temp & continues to stay on the mark. Plenty of smoke & pellet usage is very efficient. Only issue I’ve had is w/ phone app which I will inquire about Monday. May be my distance from my router. For now the ribs & chickens smell out of this world. My only problem is what to do with all my time. No tending the fire & watching the temp. It’s all on Rec Tec “automatic”.


  92. Very excited and satisfied with my Purchase

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2018

    I've been doing research for a while decided I was going to go with RecTec. When I finally decided to pull the trigger I saw they came out with the Bull RT-700. I'm so happy that I chose this grill. It does everything I wanted and more. It was very easy to assemble and get started. Been using it for almost a week now and its been perfect. Customer service is outstanding, I called the other night just because I had a few questions in general and they were happy to talk. I think this unit is hands down the best bang for the buck!!!
