The legs fold niclely into the shelf for storage. Perfect when cold smoking cheese here in Michigan in the winter.
I store it on the bottom shelf when not in use. I would definitely recommend it.

I wanted this so I can smoke some beef jerky and it worked great! For easy clean up get the grill mats as well for they work great too!.
It's nice to have more grilling space when smoking a lot at one time.

This second shelf is everything you would expect coming from REC TEC. It is very well built and looks like it will last forever. Well done REC TEC!

The second self is very strong, like the way the legs fold down for easier storage. It was a awesome gift from my daughter.

Tech support was great, they shipped me the correct item and it took care of my problem. Great grill and service.

Shelf is well made and I like that the legs fold under for easy storage when it's not being used.

Love the shelf. Used it right away to put a drippings pan under a full beef brisket that I smoked. Thanks guys for adding this to the smoker options!!

It is an excellent addition to reduce fuel usage by increasing the interior cooking space. Be sure to plan to cook using as much space as possible.

The grill arrived four days after ordering. I used the assembly video that walked me through the process with a problem. Once it was seasoned we were cooking. My first smoke was Test Turkey. I invited friends over a few weeks before thanksgiving to test the finished product. I also decided to smoke two chickens and four slabs of baby back ribs. I used the sauce receipt you guys described as being used by Myron and Johnny. Well needless to say everything came out delicious. In fact for the last two weeks we've smoked something every other night. I can skip a night because to save fuel we cook enough for at least two days. If don't own one and know someone that does offer to buy the meat and watch them some it and find a tasty meet that is well beyond your expectations. I've grilled pineapple slices, corn on the Cobb, squash and seafood. Remember to get the grill set. Finally get each package of pellets and decide which you like best. Currently we are mixing them, yet be sure to documents your measurements to ensure the exact taste. I forgot we own a propane and charcoal grill.

We bought this particular second shelf because it has greater clearance which makes it easier to get at the food being cooked underneath it. It's a little larger than we probably need - but the extra capacity is nice. If the smaller ones (that fit both the Mini-300 and the RT-680) had the same clearance (4") as this one, I would have bought two of them instead of this one larger one.
Posted by Don on 16th Nov 2016
Same quality as my rec tec 680. Nothing short of bullet proof. Love the extra space and it gives me even more cooking options.
Posted by Rick G. on 5th Nov 2016
Beautiful, heavy duty, sturdy, just needs to be notched around the light. So close! 9 out of 10
Posted by J B Farms on 4th Nov 2016
Great unit. Impressed with all functionality and capabilities of this smoker. Very pleased with cooking ability and ease of use compared to old Treager smoker. Can cook and enjoy time till food is ready rather than checking unit every 15 minutes hoping temp and smoke volumne is right.
Guess work gone from wonderful grilling times.
Thanks REC TEC.
Posted by Dale Cromartie on 31st Oct 2016
This is a great addition to my Rec-Tec. Just the right size and makes everything look neat and clean.
Posted by Brian G. on 30th Oct 2016
Purchased the second shelf to add additional cooking space. The additional 350 square feet is great when having larger gatherings or need room for a few extra racks of ribs!
Posted by TOM MATTHEWS on 27th Oct 2016
Posted by Texas Steve on 19th Oct 2016
Very well made and fits into the RT-680 fine to add a lot of additional cooking area. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Posted by Gary Worrall on 14th Oct 2016
Perfect addition to my Rec Tec; nearly doubles the capacity; another quality product.

hold temp as said
Posted by Isaac R. on 3rd Oct 2016
I have owned my 680 for almost a year now and I love it. The customer service is by far the best hands down! I had a issue with one of the grill grates, emailed them and had 2 brand new grill grates within a week!! Amazing. Just bought the extra second shelf and it's great as well but could use a notch for light. Looking foward to getting the cold smoker next. Great grill and great service!
Posted by Craig Miller on 1st Oct 2016
Works great, solidly built, great addition!
Posted by Garth McBride on 30th Sep 2016
I previously purchased the Traeger shelf - difficult to clean and doesn't fold up. This Rec Tec product is far superior both in design and quality
I also love the fold up legs - and wished it had a notch for the grill light so it could go all the way back
Posted by Rick Repsold on 17th Sep 2016
great even cooking area,great smoke flavoring,great temp control compare with another gauge at times 1to 2 deg off,i have tried large and small meat and all comes out good.
Posted by Richard D on 12th Sep 2016
Doubles what i can grill great item
Posted by Doug Swaim on 12th Sep 2016
Excellent addition to my alread great smoker.
Posted by Darrel Gill on 9th Sep 2016
Quick delivery,easy setup. Works beautifully.
Posted by Craig Dallmann on 6th Sep 2016
First time grill owner. ( Smoking ) ordered the kitchen sink. Awesome. Rack is cool. Wish it was collapseable or two sections. Must my thought. Otherwise doubles your space. VERY well built. Thanks
Posted by Joe S on 5th Sep 2016
I wished it could go back a little farther. Slightly shorter legs or even a notch so it doesn't hit the light.
Posted by Unknown on 2nd Sep 2016
Second shelf comes in handy for all types of cooks when extra space is needed, shelf is well-made.
Posted by Unknown on 31st Aug 2016
Its great to have more space in the best pelletgrill of the world ;)and as usual from Rec Tec best quality!
Posted by Unknown on 24th Aug 2016
Very well made and works great as expected
Posted by George Chisholm on 23rd Aug 2016
The second shelf works and fits great! Still have all your room on the bottom to cook on and room for your extra such as large pan of baked beans, corn or whatever you want!
Posted by Vito LaSala on 17th Aug 2016
I received my second shelf about a week ago. Fantastic is all I can say. Great quality and looks. Thanks RECTEC.
Posted by Unknown on 17th Aug 2016
used to put sausage and veggies on smoker while using lower part for chickens worked very well am pleased
Posted by Joe on 17th Aug 2016
Solid, built to last. Gives you all kinds of extra space. The only downfall that I see is it does make it tuff to get to anything under it (if you need to). I just learned " statical placement ".
Posted by Vinny Vassalla on 17th Aug 2016
Love the shelf, just wish it would go back farther, it hits the light, inside the grill. It's hard to reach the food in the back, underneath the shelf.
Posted by Bob McVea on 17th Aug 2016
I purchased the RT-680 about two months ago and have cooked on it almost every other day. Assembly was easy following the instructions. Everything fit properly and I was able to cook on it that evening. Before purchasing this unit, I did extensive research on the internet. I felt that this was the best product for the money. The only issue that I have is that the cover for it is a little hard to put on and remove due to how tight it is. Other than that, I love it!
Posted by Jeff Hackney on 17th Aug 2016
I did a lot of research before buying the 680 this grill is so simple to use my wife and daughters cook on it more than I do we roast fresh veggies on it 3 to 4 times a week and it makes the tastiest meats all you need to do is set the temperature put your food on go watch TV next thing you know out comes this gourmet meal
Posted by Mike Hodges on 17th Aug 2016
It is working out great. It is a little tight to put things under the new rack all the way to the back but worth the effort for the extra surface.
Posted by Unknown on 17th Aug 2016
The extra space is nice when you're smoking a good amount of food. But if your just grilling some quick burgers and chicken it can get in the way. All in all its a good buy.
Posted by Scott O. on 17th Aug 2016
This is a great idea to increase Square Footage on your smoker.
BTW--- These guys are AWESOME!! No better customer attention in any other business better than these guys!! I am trying to use their techniques in my business!! Thanks so much for being down to earth guys!!!
Posted by Lisa Piatanesi on 24th Jun 2016
Like all RECTEC products, this shelf is built like a tank. Solid construction means I don't have to worry about the shelf warping or rusting. I love that the legs fold under so you can store the shelf flat. I just wish the back of the shelf were notched out to slide all the way to the back of the grill and fit around the grill light.
Posted by Unknown on 13th Jun 2016
Posted by T Bonze on 13th Jun 2016
Great addition! I've been hoping for something like this
Posted by Steve Drake on 13th Jun 2016
Had made a 2nd shelf using grills out of my old smoker. However, the new one you made is just perfect and super craftsmanship as always from Rec Tech. There area times you have an overload of ribs or fish to smoke and this is the answer. Thanks
Posted by mcnulty on 13th Jun 2016
Awesome idea. I can cook twice as many ribs with this. thanks
Posted by Todd Marth on 13th Jun 2016
I feel that the second shelf is simply too big. It cuts the cooking space down by 2/3 and it makes the area underneath it unusable. It would be better if it were half as wide or half as long.
Posted by Erik Casperson on 13th Jun 2016
It was a welcome addition to my smoker. I needed it to cram more ribs in there for a Memorial Day party. It worked just fine as it is made to fit.
Posted by J. Jones on 13th Jun 2016
This shelf gives you the extra grilling space needed. Whether it's grilling up more meat, veggies or just heating up buns having the extra space is so convenient.
Posted by Dan on 13th Jun 2016
Ordered it because I was smoking 8 butts and two fit nicely on top of the shelf. I just wish the legs snapped closed like they do when it's open. Will use this a lot I am sure. Easy to use. Fits great, easy to clean.
Posted by JoeyC on 13th Jun 2016
Great product (like all of RecTec's products). Only complaint I have is the self bumps up in the back of the grill against the internal light. So you cannot push it flush against the back of the smoker. The collapsing legs for storage was a great idea.
Posted by JK on 13th Jun 2016
I was very happy to learn a new extra shelf was available. I ordered mine immediately and received it quickly. The quality of this new shelf is everything I hoped for. It gives me so much more inside surface to cook on that the possibilities are endless. I fully recommend this produce to anyone wanting more cooking surface. It's made equal in quality to the RecTec grill...which is the best!
Posted by Les Mueller on 12th Jun 2016
This is exactly what I was looking for. Still room down below and ample space above. Smart thinking guys.
Posted by Unknown on 12th Jun 2016
The shelf is built well and the folding legs are perfect to use as the grill grate or store under the grill. I am now able to smoke so much more now
Posted by Nick on 12th Jun 2016
Great quality product! Almost doubles the space inside.
I do wish there was a way to secure it down inside the grill
Posted by Brian on 12th Jun 2016
I love my 2nd shelf. The quality is great, the fit is ideal and it even looks good.... for now.
And it almost doubles the cooking area when we need it.
Posted by Kevin on 12th Jun 2016
As with all of Rec Tec products the quality is outstanding. This shelf gives me the extra space I need for cooking for larger groups or just smokin some more meat.
Posted by Charlie on 12th Jun 2016
I placed the shelf into my RecTec but haven't used it yet. It appears to be well made and I hope comes in handy when grilling certain food items. I don't see it as an accessory that will be left in the RecTec or used often as it does restrict the height and location of items placed onto the main grill.
Posted by Sandy on 11th Jun 2016
I own both the large & small grill. I recently purchased the 2nd. shelf. All 3 products are well built. Rec Tec has awesome customer service. I started to use the shelf right away & could not be happier. They took the time to listen to what customers needed/wanted & they produced a very good product. The shelf is easy to put in/out & easy to use. I recommend any of their products. I hope someday that Rec Tec owners will have a forum to share ideas & recipes.
Posted by Ken Delanoy on 10th Jun 2016
I ordered the extra shelf when the need for extra grilling space is required I would have it. The stainless steel shelf is well built and easy to install and remove on the RT680 stainless steel racks when needed. Another great product from the people at Rec Tec Pellet Grills. Thank you.
Posted by Tom on 10th Jun 2016
Super grill that lets one set the temperature and let the grill do the work, so much that the wife will use it.
Posted by Robert on 10th Jun 2016
Awesome shelf works great for veggies and potatoes
Posted by George K on 10th Jun 2016
Nice item! folds for easy storage, fits the grill nicely and has a large surface almost adding another 50% more space for smoking! Diamond shaped grating is small enough that you can smoke smaller items without fear of it falling through. Well Made!
Posted by Matt Robeck on 10th Jun 2016
If you have a RT-680, you need to have the 2nd shelf, it adds a ton of space to cook on. Cooking a brisket above some smoked beans is the greatest thing in the world!!!
Posted by Jeff of Grillist BBQ on 10th Jun 2016
I was hoping they would add a shelf at some point and this is great! The shelf adds 352" of cooking space without being in the way or intrusive. Very nicely built and is perfect for some high heat hatch marks on meat and veggies! Still plenty of room for large brisket or pork butts above and below. Recommend.
Posted by Ryan S. on 10th Jun 2016
When I got the e-mail that a 2nd shelf had been added to the Rec Tec, I immediately got on my phone and ordered it. The shelf arrived extremely quick just 2 or 3 days later. The shelf itself is solidly built and looks great. It fits exactly how it is supposed to in the rec tec and really adds some nice space to the cooking area. I think this is a phenomenal addition to the already great rec tec accessories that exist. I would recommend you grab one.
Posted by Smokin Steve on 10th Jun 2016
Same high quality that we have come to expect from Rec Tec
Used it for a large batch of smoked bacon and it cut cooking time in half
Posted by Jim on 10th Jun 2016
Started a perk butt, ten hours later added ribs and chicken, and after 15 hours had a full BBQ for 20 at a graduation party. Charge mor for the smoker and make it standard equipment- its invaluable.
Posted by MC on 9th Jun 2016
Great way to add more grilling area
Posted by horton on 9th Jun 2016
Awesome, it's about time. Extra room is always welcome. Fits nicely. Stores perfect.
Posted by Lisa Piatanesi on 30th May 2016
First, let's start with the positives. This is a very sturdily constructed stainless steel shelf. It's not going to warp or rust and should last a long time. Also, installation couldn't be any easier. You simply unfold the legs until they click in place and you set the shelf on top of the main grates. Storage when not using the shelf is perfect because the shelf folds flat. That being said, my only wish was that the shelf be notched out in the back so that it fits around the grill light assembly in the back of the grill. If it were notched out, you could slide the shelf all the way back and have easier access to the food cooking underneath. I haven't tried it yet but, I think it's going to be difficult to reach any food cooking towards the back of the grill. I can't imagine being able to flip a burger cooking at the back of the grill while grilling ears of corn on the shelf. That's the only reason I had to knock off one star. Otherwise, I think REC TEC has the best grills and accessories out there and their customer service can't be beat.

Cooked chicken wings on it to check if there is a temperature difference top to bottom and there was none everything took the same amount of time and had the same doneness.
Cooked 4 slabs of beef short ribs today, which I couldn't fit on the original grill alone. They all cooked evenly, no turning or shifting required
The extra shelf works great. For a large amount of small stuff like chicken wings or legs it is the best. when not in use it folds up and fits on the bottom shelf.
Posted by Unknown on 26th May 2016
Bought this and was very disappointed. It covers over 2/3 of the lower cooking area. It would have been much better if they would have considered the light in the grill and allowed you to push it back further when fully extended.
Posted by William Cnossen on 25th May 2016
Got the shelf today and cooked a batch of wings. Found no difference between top and bottom shelves for temp, cook time, color of finished wings. Did an excellent job and I plan to use it for an extra pair of whole beef short ribs this weekend and will update this entry after they are done.
Only drawbacks - may need to use some spray to prevent sticking the first time and the back of the bottom shelf is hard to see, but those are minor problems for the extra cooking space. Thanks RecTec!
