Product Description

The Searing Kit is made up of 3 INTERLOCKING PANELS that fit across the surface of your grill. They can replace your existing grates or cover them. The Searing Kit produces juicier and more tender food.

Made of hard anodized aluminium, each grate emits infrared heat, which increases the grill surface temperature, reduces burning, and delivers restaurant quality sear marks all at once.

Simply place this Searing Grate on the right hand side of your REC TEC and they will provide you with bold sear marks and even bolder flavor.

Kit Includes:

  • 3 interlocking panels (19.5" x 5.25" each)
  • 1 Grate tool

  1. Worth the money

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2018

    The first 2 times I used these I was disappointed. I did my first steaks at 400 on the sear plates and they didn't sear at all. The next time I went up to 440. Same result. Last night I jacked it up to 500 and they worked perfectly! Make sure you use them at 500° and you will love them.

  2. Sear Grates

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2018

    Works really well. Temp of grates were about 100 degrees higher than left side grill racks. If you like seared meat this is for you and worth the money.

  3. great product

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2018

    Great product works great good quality would recommend to anyone looking for a little extra heat in all the right places

  4. Great Additon to our 680!

    Posted by on 5th Feb 2018

    These grates are awesome. Keeps the food from burning and cooks to a nice consistent temp and leaves great grill marks.

  5. perfect sear marks and zero flair ups.

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2018

    Just as advertised. Perfect companion for the rectecgrill.

  6. a must have addition

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2018

    Searing kit is an unbelievable addition to the Rec Tec grill that makes it so much like a regular grill. You truly get the feel of direct heat cooking and you can get the outside of your meat nice and crispy while retaining the tenderness and moistture on the inside

  7. grilling made even easier

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    searing kit is easy to use as well as clean, good and heavy so it doesn't slide all over the grates


    Posted by on 9th Dec 2017

    Used the grates first time grilling T bone steak. That was the best steaks I have grilled. Whole chicken next.

  9. My husband loves these

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2017

    We bought the pellet grill and I got these for my husbands birthday present. This turned our smoker that my husband really loved to a grill that I said I was going to miss if we only had a "smoker." Now our grill does both and our first round of pork tenderloin and chicken was the best meat we ever grilled!!!!!

  10. A must for your 680!

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2017

    If u have a 680 the sear kit is a must!. I use it all the time to finish off steaks or can be used for some burgers on the backside of the grillgrates also. They heat up super fast possibilities are endless!

  11. the rec tec searing kit

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2017

  12. Sear Kit is a must have

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2017

    Seat kit is as advertised . Well built, easy to use and cooking results are great. I have used it for homemade pizza and chicken so far, looking forward to other foods. Seat kit maker has a good website with recipes.

  13. Searing Kit

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

  17. Searing made easy with GrillGrate

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    Work great on helping the flare ups

  21. Griil Like A Pro

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2017

    If you like to grill and get the perfect grill marks on your steak you need to get the grill searing kit. This is the way you make your food taste great and yourself look like a pro

  22. Awsome Product.

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2017

    This grate works very good a MOST HAVE!!!

  23. This should be standard issue on pellet grills

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2017

    I wish I had bought from day one - it is awesome for carne asada, burgers, steaks, etc., basically anything you need to put some high heat on it will do the job. It will let you get it hot enough to lock in the juices and put those pretty sear marks on the meat that you can't get from the standard grill. Highly, highly recommend this addition.

  24. Should be standard on every grill

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2017

    Really enjoying the results of the Grillgrate. Professional results at home.

  25. searing kit:

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    Results are great. Would be helpful if a couple of simple arrows were embedded onto the grates for easier assembly....but NOT a big deal. Would definitely buy again...

  26. searing grates

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2017

    These grates are great. Does everything it said it would do. It's like grilling with charcoal, but better. It just makes the Rectec better...

  27. Reverse Sear

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    I bought this kit for searing meat on the Rec Tek and it was fantastic. We have a Sterling Tek BBQ grill that grills steaks in a short period of time, but we can't use it if it's raining as water cannot fall on the surface. We put this searing kit into our Rec Tek, which took longer than our normal grill, but it was well worth it, and the flavor was amazing.

  28. Grill Grates

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2017

    These grates do a really good job of searing on your pellet grill. I usually reverse sear, smoke low and slow then heat the grill up to 400+ searing with the grates right side up or upside down.

  29. Grill Searing Kit

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2017

    Works exactly as Rec Tec said it would. Fits perfectly. Ordered them after the grill was delivered and, it was shipped fast. Very pleased

  30. Great Add-on!

    Posted by on 28th Apr 2017

    Steaks and burgers are fantastic on the rec-tec. Now with the sear kit reverse seared steaks are amazing. I also flip them over and use the flat side to sear. I highly recommend this product.

  31. Searing kit it's a must have

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2017

    I used it 3 times already, love it. It's a must have for how I smoke .

  32. grill plates

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2017

    Does exactly like they say. Great design and good quality. I like how you slide them together, and they lock well together. They don't wooble or rock on the grill either. They heat up very fast and you can use both sides. Just depends on what you're cooking.

  33. This is it.

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2017

    Just two words, OH YEAH!!!

  34. Difficult to clean

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2017

    Not really impressed with it

  35. great addition to the grill

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2017

    I didn't get it at first thinking I wouldn't need it but after seeing what others were saying about it I decided to get one and I am glad I did.

  36. GOT A SET FOR RT300

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2017

    So what the hell, got a set for the RT680 can't go wrong, THEY WORK GREAT.

  37. Sear grates

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2017

    This was a gift. I have the sear grates for my Rec Tec and they work great. Livin the Rec Tec lifestyle.

  38. Great product

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2017

    The sear plates are awesome just cooked 6 chicken breast on them with 6 different favors the best I ever eaten or made. The son loves using them with steak too. Thanks

  39. Great Grill

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2017

    I am still experimenting, but so far I couldn't be happier with the Rec Tec.

  40. Get this if you want to "grill" with your grill

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2017

    While the Rec Tec does an amazing job of cooking and smoking, you just don't get the traditional grill lines from the grates that come with it. This searing kit takes the Rec Tec to the next level.

  41. Love this pellet smoker

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2016

    Ordered and received my 680 and I'm in love beets my Treager hands down in quality and cooking I highly recommend this smoker

  42. Awesome grill

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2016

    Being new to the pellet grill rage,I really didn't know what I was getting into. But after setting the 680 up and cooking a few easy items (chicken breast, steak,whole chicken) I dove in and went for the Big Bang brisket and Boston butt, at the same time no less. After 14 hours for the beef and 16 for the pork,my very opinionated buddy is still texting two weeks later that was the best BBQ he has ever eaten. I have say it was pretty good . I can't believe how easy it was too set it at 225 and went to bed.

  43. Great for Salmon and Steaks

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2016

    Greatly enhanced what I can do on my new Rec Tec. Salmon and Steaks really turned out better than just the standard sturdy grates. It bumped up the temp and grease off the steaks sizzled in the grill grates giving some good flavor

  44. Love my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2016

    It came out phenomenal on the outside and tender on the inside tasted absolutely wonderful going to do it again this weekend glad I purchased them

  45. Resturaunt quality grill marks

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

    If you want to make show quality grill marks on steaks these are perfect or flip them over and get a great sear over the whole steak.

  46. Very Happy

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

    Shipped quickly, packaged well, HD construction, easy to assemble, preforms superbly - would HIGHLY recommend

    Nice convience

  47. Necessary addition

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

    works great

  48. Sears meat well

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    Have used these several and meat always is seared to perfection. Easy to season

  49. Amazing Grill Grates

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2016

    Cooked some ribeye on the Rec Tec 680 with the grill grates I ordered from Rec Tec and they were amazing. Also cooked some stuffed pork chops and they turned out the best chops I have ever had. I would recommend the grill grates to my friends and also the Rec Tec. It is the most solid pellet smoker I have owned. Thanks Rec Tec.

  50. will never cook burgers any other way

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2016

    was skeptical at getting one at first but decided to make the purchase and glad i did it, best burgers Iverson ever made

  51. Just like dad would have done it!

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

    Just received the searing grill and have only used it once. Just heated my Rec Tec 680 up to 250 with the searing grill on the grates. Placed the steaks on the grill for 2 minutes then rotated 90 degrees for two additional minutes on a different portion of the grill. Then turned the steaks over and repeated. The 1" rib steaks came out med rare. Just great! Someday I will try the reverse sear. Just hard to break old habits!! If you spray a little PAM on them 1st they will clean up a easier.

  52. Sensational, smoky & sexy

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

    Initially, we found that we were too busy/hungry/ill-prepared to wait for the food to grill on the pellet grill. So we purchased the searing grates and now it grills as quickly as we were used to with gas. The food is so juicy and still a little smoky. Love the grate marks too

  53. Must have for burgers

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2016

    I use this product with the flat side up, I mainly do burgers on it, it is very worth it. You will not be disappointed

  54. Best add on for your grill

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2016

    I never had good luck when cooking steaks till I bought the sear grates. They leave great grill marks and I've had the best steaks I've cooked. The steaks are juice and melt in my mouth!

  55. Easy clean up

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2016

    Great if you want that heavy hot searing. Awesome for tuna steaks.

  56. I finally have grill marks!

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2016

    I bought these because I had a Traeger previously that had issues getting up to temp. I wanted to be able to reverse sear some steaks, and bought these to accomplish that better. First off, being able to get up to 500-550 is awesome, but these get even hotter and give such good marks and flavor. I've even flipped them upside down to use the flat surface to make blackened fish, and they work great for that.

  57. Sear n sizzle

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2016

    The sear grates are awesome give a great crust on steaks and does potatoes and veggies like no tomorrow

  58. Great addition

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2016

    In my opinion it's a must have if cooking burgers and steaks on the grill. It has two sides, one that gives you perfect grill marks and the other that will give you a nice crust. I prefer the flat side for searing with a crust.

  59. Best Grill Rack I ever used

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2016

    I am using these in a Pellet Grill and it's not a Rec Tec grill, 5 units fit in perfect and covered the whole surface. I had to trim about an inch from the corners to get it into round grill with the one inch wide edges. Steaks cook perfect every time with a real nice sear to them and that goes for anything that I cook on the grill.

    Great product if you like grilling you need to buy this.

  60. Works Great

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2016

    Just like they say....works like a grill or a flat top for the crisp. Don't buy a grill without it.

  61. A Must Have!

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2016

    Bought these for the hubby for Father's Day and he not only loves them but so do I! Great for the perfect steak but don't save it for just your steaks as we have found it a great addition for so many of our meals. This is just a wonderful addition to the perfect smoker anyone could ever buy...REC TEC.

  62. Great Grill Marks

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2016

    Well I tried these searing grates today on some steaks and corn on the cob. I had my Rec Tec fired up to 500 and they sizzled the moment the steaks hit the grates. Did a quarter turn to give it a crisscross grill marks before flipping. Did the same on the other. These were the best sear marks that I have ever had. The grates were also great on the corn on the cob, caramelizing the sugar in the corn. Now I want to try reverse searing on some steaks.

  63. Much needed addition!

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2016

    If you cook steaks you will appreciate the perfect grill marks from these grill grates!!

  64. Best purchase ever.

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    The searing grates give the meat that depth in flavor that I was looking for.

  65. Searing kit

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    Great product. I used it for the 1st time to reverse sear ny strip steaks and they worked very nicely on my new rec tec

  66. A must have.

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2016

    If you love to really grill food this is the way to go. I really love it on fish and vegetables.

  67. Superior Grill Grates

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2016

    I love my new Rec Tec Pellet Grill and all the accessories I have purchased so far. The grill grates are a nice enhancement to an already superior product!

  68. Grill Grates work GREAT !!!

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    These grates are incredible. It sears the food perfectly and locks in the f!avor. The grill marks make the food look amazing. A must for every grill owner.

  69. Best Searing Grates

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2016

    I am really Satified with the way I,ve done meats..!
    the grates seem to get hotter than originals..!
    so for heavier meats even chicken I use searing grates..!
    pizza, cookies, potatoes an what have you I use original
    stainless steel grates, pulled pork I use original grates..!
    folks I will say when a person gets setup with all cooking supplies probes an so on, REC TEC is my style....!!

  70. Love this grill!!!

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

    This is a "rock star" pellet grill! It is everything that they claim it is and more. It is high quality that delivers with a push of a button and leave it alone. We grill steaks, burgers, roast chicken, smoke brisket and use it to bake pizza. Thank you Rec Tec for engineering a high quality pellet grill so that we can easily cook with wood.

  71. Very Pleased

    Posted by on 27th May 2016

    Does okay on the Rec Tec. Absolutely love the searing marks. Fancy.

  72. Awesome

    Posted by on 24th May 2016

    So good I bought 2 of them.

  73. Absolutely Necessary and Work Great!

    Posted by on 16th May 2016

    This is a must have addition to the Rec Tec. I was skeptical that these grates could make that much difference, but they do! I absolutely love my Rec Tec as a smoker, but I was never truly happy with the results with steaks or burgers because I could not get a good sear. With the grill grates, I am now completely satisfied with results for grilling and smoking all foods on the Rec Tec. As a matter of fact, the grates worked so well on my Rec Tec, I bought a set to completely convert my Weber Genesis gas grill, and they work awesome on the Weber as well. I usually bust out the Rec Tec for most of my grilling needs, but when I'm pinched for time I still use the Weber simply because it's faster. Couldn't be happier with the investment! Once again, Rec Tec hits a home run!

  74. Grill Grates

    Posted by on 16th May 2016

    Works great, fits rt-680 "like a glove".

  75. Works great

    Posted by on 10th May 2016

    Love these things. Lets my 680 get almost as hot as a high end gasser for reverse searing. Example:

    Making burgers, smoke the patties at 180 until they reach 150 internal temp (about an hour).

    Remove the burgers and crank the rec tec up to max and let it heat up as far as it will go with the grill grates installed. Sear the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side.

  76. A must have for Steak

    Posted by on 10th May 2016

    Buy them you won't regret it.

  77. Great Product

    Posted by on 9th May 2016

    I recently had a problem with my Rec Tec grill.
    The guys at Rec Tec fully resoved my problem and threw in this searing kit as a bonus for my troubles!

    Their customer service is second to none!
    The searing grates work perfectly!
    Thanks Rec Tec!!!!


    Posted by on 13th Apr 2016

    I replaced my Traeger with the Rec Tec a few weeks ago. I had assumed that I would just get another Traeger , only a bigger one than I previously had. I decided to do a little research and decided I was going to go with the rec Tec . I was slightly uncomfortable with the fact that I could not see the unit in person, before purchasing .....
    Well , I received the grill, assembly was minimal, and easy. The quality of this grill is far superior to my old model. I have used it several times, and will use it almost daily through the summer. I would not hesitate to recommend this grill. It is an absolute masterpiece

  79. Works Great!

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2016

    I was skeptical of the sear kit when I ordered the grill but I have been impressed with the performance!!! I definitely recommend ordering this when you decided to purchase the Rec Tec pellet grill!

  80. Excellent Tool for the RecTEc

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2016

    The searing grates are an excellent additional tool for the RecTec giving you a greater range of cooking options. Low and slow isn't always the answer and the grates put perfect sear marks on meat.

  81. Grill Grates work Great!

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2016

    The grill grates provide a nice even area of heat and leaves grill marks if so desired. The grill takes a little longer to preheat but is worth the wait for the consistency of the temperature. I have only used them upside down and have worked flawlessly every time.

  82. great for searing or just cooking on

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2016

    The searing grills are awesome. My wife loves the way I can make the lines on her steak, and she say's "what did you do", and I reply " I Rec'd them"

  83. nice grills

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2016

    hey guys a real griller uses these searing grates in a rectec..!! mighty nice for grilln meats..!! wouldn't be without..!! top notch..!!

  84. Work Great

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2016

    I purchased the searing grates with the pellet grill and they work great glad I have them also bought the grates for the mini

  85. Great addition for your grill

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2016

    Love the new searing kit. My steaks now have that professional seared look.
    A side note about RecTec.
    My grill arrived the night before I was hosting 25 or so club members for a BBQ. After setting it up I discovered it did not work! Sent RecTec an email way after hours expecting I may hear from them the next day. To my surprise one of the owners called me within 5 minutes and solved my problem. Customer service can't get much better than that!

  86. great grates

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

    like that you can use either side

  87. Searing kit

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

    Works great so far. Glad I decided to get it.

  88. Does the job

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    I have several sets of these and they make the Difference

  89. another great accessory for the Rectec

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2016

    The grates get hotter than the grill, make excellent grill marks. Also you can cook things like Korean bbq meat, that would normally fall through.

  90. Not to bad

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2016

    I've only used these a few times but it is so handy to flip the meat over with the special spatula and it doesn't stick to it either.

  91. works awesome

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2016

    I have plates for both the mini and the RT 680. best product ever. Nice to purchase something that works like it is suppose to

  92. Great for Searing Meats - Steaks

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

    Used the Searing plates to sear steaks. Put decent size ribeye and Filet on low heat - 185 F for about 40 minutes on the searing plates then put them on normal grill grate and turned them up to 450 F to finish off and they were great.

  93. Quality!

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2015

    Rec Tec delivered as advertised. High quality materials and performance.

  94. great steak

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2015

    Unbelievable steak on the rectec with the searing kit.

  95. excellent

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2015

    Recommended by the Rec Tec staff and I couldn't be happier with the purchase!

  96. Built With Quality Materials

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2015

    This smoker does an excellent job of keeping temperature within 5 degrees. Every part is built of top grade materials. The customer service is the very best I have ever experienced.

  97. Great Product

    Posted by on 14th Oct 2015

    I'm happy with the quality of the plates, not to mention I made probably the best steaks I have ever cooked. Thanks RecTec for another awesome product.

  98. I love this grill AWESOME

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2015

    After we got it up and running....I love it!

  99. Love the flavors that this grill brings out in food!

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2015

    We are still in learning and testing mode with our new Rec Tec grill, but so far we are finding it quite amazing. The flavors and tenderness of the meats are amazing. We have yet to master the "sear", but certain that we will get there. Veggies are great on this grill as well.

  100. Gets those Marks on

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2015

    Easy to use, and gets a good sear going for Hamburgers. The provided grate tool works excellently as well. A must have for that needed sear on meat.
