  1. RT-300

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2017

    I have owned the rt-300 for roughly a month and love it. Very efficient on pellet use. Did a 12hr smoke on some pork shoulders and never had to refill the hopper.

  2. Amazing

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    Have had this amazing pellet grill for two weeks and have already smoked pulled pork, chicken quarters, ribs and reverse seared ribeye steaks. All of them were delicious.
    Love how easy it is to cook with the RT-300, Used a propane BBQ my whole life and was worried that the smoke flavor would overwhelm the flavor when I wanted to just BBQ but was pleasantly surprised that it did not.
    The smaller size RT-300 has been fine, fit 3 racks of ribs, 5-6 nice sized ribeye steaks and 2 eight pound pork shoulders .
    Look forward to giving this to my son in a couple of years and getting the bigger one.
    Did a lot of research on the Rec Tec and Traeger and found that Traeger was having a lot of issues getting the temperature above 350° with their customer service trying multiple fixes with no success si it was a no brainer to get the Rec Tec and an so happy I did.
    Make sure you check out their web site for great recipe ideas and buy their accessories because they are very good quality and very reasonable compared to some of the stuff on Amazon.
    Happy Grillin

  3. Amazing pellet smoker

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    Received my Mini on time and set up and burn-in was simple. Always been a charcoal then gas grill man but struggled with temp control on both. The amazing computer on my Mini rid me of this problem, as they say, "set it and forget it". My first meat I smoked was spare pork ribs for my wife and a friend. They loved it and friend said it was the best ribs he's ever eaten! I used the Aaron Franklin recipe on youtube. One week later I cooked 4 racks of spare ribs and dropped them off to my physical therapist and team for them to eat for lunch. I left and returned next morning for my PT session and went I entered the building I was mobbed like a rock star with compliments and praise from PT team about how great tasting the ribs were. One young lady said she never eats pork ribs unless her dad makes them cause their the best but she said mine were better. Told them I'm a rookie rib smoker and I owe it to the Rec Tec smoker ( mainly ), and franklin recipe. My PT is seriously thinking of buying a Rec Tec smoker now.

  4. Great grill

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    I have cooked pork rib and a pork butt both came out perfectly I am looking forward to cooking a brisket next week I am 100 % satisfied I bought this grill because of the quality and because it is made in the USA

  5. anniversary present

  6. Best Smoker Ever

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    Very simple to use and does an excellent job.

  7. this is the best suprise i vould have gotten for my boyfriend hos friends love our payio parties

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    This grill makes cooking fun so amazing how you don't have to worry about burnt food you can't burn food with this grill

  8. Says what it does and does what it says.

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2017

    Yeah, I'm one of those guys who likes to price shop, and I've been known to listen to hucksters in big box stores pushing other brands ( like Tr****r) of pellet smokers, and once-in-a-while I make a mistake. Well, I admit it. I bought the wrong one. I tried, really tried to make it work like it was supposed to (called their customer service 4 or 5 times and did everything like they said). But it just wouldn't hold temperature, and the fire kept going out. I finally gave up, took it back to C***CO, got my money back and ordered a RecTec mini. Now, IT holds the temp dead nuts on once it reaches my desired setting.
    Now I know why it costs (with shipping) about twice as much as the competition, it actually works!
    My ribs come out perfect (I use the 3-2-1 method), the brisket isn't burnt to a crisp, and the 9 Lb. 14 hour smoked pulled pork shoulder with homemade barbecue sauce is getting rave reviews from everyone lucky enough to get a taste.
    The RecTec smoker/grill heats up to the selected temperature quickly, and the extra large (compared to the competition) pellet box with locking lid holds enough pellets for an overnight (8-14 hr. @ 220 degrees) recipe.
    The only problem I have is that there is no drop-front tray available from RecTec for the Mini. When I called the company, they said it wouldn't be practical what with the folding leg portability. No problem, I just kept the accessory tray assembly from the T***ger smoker, it fit on just fine.
    Maybe them good folks at RecTec could at least include a picture of where to drill the holes for mounting the tray brackets if they don't want to offer a tray of their own as an accessory.
    Some personal recommends: be careful what you use to clean the grill with, the painted surfaces, stainless grill grate and drip tray will scratch or dull with steel mesh scouring pads and some plastic pads. Line the drip tray with a sheet of tinfoil to save a ton of cleanup time, and change that tinfoil sheet every time if its got drippings on it, you don't want to risk a fire.

  9. Pro BBQ from a novice

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    The first thing I cooked was a brisket which isnt easy on a regular grill. I just watched a couple of Ray's YouTube vids and followed simple instructions. It came out perfect. No problems out of the grill and the mini is really efficient with pellet use.

  10. Follow up

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    I had written a review shortly after purchasing, but feel compelled to write a follow up.

    I loved this grill right out of the box and that feeling has only increased! A few weeks into owning it the temp controller starting acting weird, bouncing around reading actual temp. A quick call resulted in an overnight shipment of both a new control unit and a new thermo, with advice to replace the controller first. That was a 15 minute job and all great again without having to replace the thermometer! The advice and customer service response was exactly as you have read - superb.

    Since then have grilled and smoked a wide variety of foods from salmon to ribeyes to all forms of chicken and vegetables. I have to say, the thing I like the most is how it takes a simply dinner like barbecue chicken or burgers and with no effort makes it special.

    A buddy of mine from Texas is a bit of a smoker snob. He borrowed my Mini to do a 16Lb. brisket for a family event just to see how it would work. Well, he is totally sold! Described being able to go to bed while the brisket was smoking as "cheating"!

    You can't go wrong with a mini!!

  11. Terrific! Solid, easy to use, great results

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    I am impressed with the Rec Tec Mini. Came from a Kamado Joe, which was great, but I wanted something that was a little easier to use, plus it was hard to get good charcoal without having it shipped, which inevitably beat it up pretty bad. Using CookinPellets, and the smoke taste on ribs and pulled pork is just wonderful. The Rec Tec uses excellent materials (304 stainless, PID controller, ceramic ignition, porcelain lid, etc.). Works beautifully. I also like the clean smoke; my wife will let me in the house during a smoke now. :-)

  12. I'd buy it again!

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    I have been wanting to purchase a pellet grill for quite some time but never pulled the trigger until recently. I purchased a RecTec wood pellet grill. In the past two weeks I have grilled steak, hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, etc. and everything comes out tasting fantastic. I've played with the smoker option with good results, so easy to use. I would recommend the RecTec to anyone looking to purchase a pellet grill.

    I also had to contact customer service because there was damage to the lid in shipping; I had a replacement within the week.

  13. Fantastic "First Timer" smoker

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2017

    This is a very well designed and built smoker. What arrived at my door met all of my expectations and then some. The electronics and mechanical parts work extremely well. What you get is smoker heaven! We have used it at least twice a week since owning it and look for things we can smoke when at the store, the food is that good.
    When you go to clean the grill however the unit "wobbles" and you are afraid it will somehow hurt it. At this point it is a nit pick but stiffening the leg structure would really help. It could be easily installed by the average home handyman if Rec Tec made it available I think.

  14. Wow, just Wow, this little smoker/grill is Awsome!!

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    I have had my RT300 about 2 weeks now and it works really well, first thing I did was smoke a pound of sliced bacon using Hickory along with some whole eggs, all came out smokey and tasty. Than I did a 15 hour overnight cook on a 6.6lb Brisket. 225 for 5 hours and 250 for another 5 hours. The dang thing only used half a hopper of pellets, about 7 lbs. Now that is an efficient burn rate. Used it to re-heat some leftover Pizza at 350 for 15 minutes than set to 190 to add some smoke flavor.... perfect.

  15. Warranty Replacement

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    My first Rec Tea Mini 300 died after 1 year of heavy usage and many delicious meals. Customer service sent me a new ignitor rod and control unit, but still would not fire up. So they sent me a new replacement grill and prepaid UPS sticker to return my old unit. Their customer service is the BEST. They answer the phone on the 2nd ring. The new Mini 300 has some improvements over my first unit. Ceramic ignitor rod. A slide opening on the side to put a temperature wire monitor through rather then closing it under the lid. The red door feels much heavier also. There is a improved clip on the side to hold the drip bucket
    on. New grill fired right up. I'm back cooking again. Great product. Unsurpassed customer service.

  16. Awesome Pellet grill and customer service

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    I bought the RT-300 about a month ago after many months of debating what to buy. The only thing I would do different if I could go back is to have bought it sooner. I love that the RT-300 keeps a steady temperature, you set it and forget it. The grill comes up to temperature quickly and provides a good amount of smoke to flavor whatever I am cooking. The grill is made from quality products and the customer support is the best. What other company gives you the phone number of the owners in case you have an issue? You will not go wrong if you buy a Rec Tec.

  17. Best investment

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    I was skeptical at first but after having had it for some time i am more than please, all i wanna do is grill, and bbq....love this thing!

  18. Pleasure to use

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    Was very satisfied with shipping, Grill was completely put together. All I had to do was snap the legs down. Workmanship was excellent
    Fired it up and was amazed how accurate it held the temp.
    The chicken came out great and all were impressed
    I had purchased copper mats and used them, could not ask for better.
    One of my better decisions

  19. Perfect size, function and flavor!

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    Friend of ours has the 680 so we knew that may be a bit big for just the two of us and the occasional party of 8-10 people. After 3 months we've done a little bit of everything on it and it works great! After looking at several other brands of pellet smokers, you can tell by the weight of the lid, hopper etc. it is quality made. Looking forward to many more great smokes!

  20. RT Mini 300

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    I've really enjoyed my RT 300. So far in the first month may have cooked let me say smoked on it every day except maybe two. Everything I have tried on it has been excellent. Love how the temperature stays whit in a degree of where I set it. So far totally satisfied with purchase.

  21. The best pellet smoker out there.

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    I reviewed all the pellet smokers and REC TEC all the way. I've smoke fish, pizza, beef, chicken, everything I cook Rocks! set it and forget it...that easy, and it's built to last love my REC TEC!

  22. grate grill

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    just purchase 300, is small but is doing grate job. I'm still learning how to grill with pellets but so far is grate. Grilled already stakes, fish and chicken. Each time is success. You must learn how to manage temperature, do not follow "standard" advice, I try to follow Rec Tech guys. Do not have time yet to experiment with different manufacturers pellets. At this moment I use pellets by B&B, Mesquite which provide even 650F. Next step is oak and the other mixtures. Highly advice to try this grill. Again, I'm very happy.

  23. should have bought one along time ago

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    Does everything and more than I expected

  24. Love it!

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    I've smoked ribs, pulled pork, steak, pizza, and burgers so far. Everything has turned out great. I highly recommend this smoker!

  25. Mini Packs Huge Punch

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    Incredible product; perfect size for myself, wife and 2 daughters. Great consistency and temperature stability. I have friends who own competitors' grills and noticed the Rec Tec's quality and features immediately. Definitely a conversation piece at cookouts.


    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Highly recommended for small families! I cooked a Boston butt, chicken breasts, pork chops and Reheated last weekends brisket Saturday and Sunday. All super juicy and the flavor was awesome!

  27. High quality

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Love my mew grill. The rt 300 is built well and all the materials are such great quality. Rec tec goes above and beyond expectations.

  28. very satisfied

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    I appreciate there was no assembly required. Just opened the box and unfolded the legs. The instructions for start up were very clear. Cooking with the grill is so simple I have enjoyed many delicious meals already.

  29. good so far

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    2 cooks ribs and brisket both came out very well!!

  30. Exceeds My Expectations

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    I knew that RecTec made a wonderful smoker because my friend has one and I've had many delicious meals with him. As a wedding gift he gave my wife and I a RecTec gift certificate so I finally purchased a Mini last month. I've made pulled pork, chickens and most recently smoked a pork belly and made homemade bacon. I love my RecTec.

  31. Happy Hubby

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    I bought my husband this Grill the Little 300. My husband is in Heaven, and our meat has never tasted more tender! My cousin and her husband have one, they made us steak and you could've cut it with a Butter Knife!! So I got one for my husband for our Anniversary and he Loves it!

  32. rec tec the best

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I bought the mini so I could take it camping hoping it would be big enough but once I opened the box I knew it was the perfect grill. I looked at other pellet grills but I decided to order the rec tec mini after reading so many positive reviews about rec tec. I made the right choice ,it works awesome and it is well built. So much better than my old gas grill. Everything I have cooked has been delicious. Thanks rec tec for making a great grill.

  33. Best Grill Your Money Can Buy!

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    We love the Rec Tech Grill. The quality is absolutely amazing. Love the electronics as well. It cost a little more, but the features and benefits are well worth it... Our food is grilled perfectly and the taste can't be beat!

  34. best grill ever

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    We have read about pillet BBQs, but did not realize how well the work. We are vary happy with the purchase.

  35. Best grill ever

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I just bought my grill a month ago and have cooked on it every chance I get. My wife and I have cooked everything on it and loved all of it. Even I can cook on this grill. You just set the temperature at what you want and leave it alone, it is just so easy. Thanks to all the Rec Tec team you have earn my loyalty to your products.

  36. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I purchased my grill about 6 months ago- best decision ever! Light weight- Easy to use and less time working a fire! I take my grill every where ... it folds up and easy to store away. My wife even loves using it Now! Win win for me. Plus awesome customer service at Rec Tec! Thanks Rec Tec Rep. Ben Lesshafft

  37. Best Gift Ever

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I purchased my RT 680 about a year and a half ago, I am still trilled with it. I purchased 2 Mini's as gifts for my nephews, one in GA the other in PA. Just happen to be in GA when his arrived, so we broke it in with a couple of tri - tips first then 3 rack of baby back ribs the next day. The whole time lounging around there pool. To quote Ray "the Rec Tec life style"... The other Nephew in PA has done beef ribs, whole chicken, and pizza... They both rave about the grills each saying "Best Gift Ever"

  38. Rec-Tec Mini - SO glad I didn't buy a Traeger Timerbline

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I have been researching pellet grills for months. I'd finally decide what to purchase, then I'd look through my options and change my mind again. Again and again I found my self coming back to Rec-Tec as the best option for me, combining a great product, customer service and value.

    As I prepared to finalize my purchase I saw discussion of the new Traeger Timberline grills. I have to say I was amazed with the new technology, and after a little negotiating I convinced my wife to increase my smoker budget.

    Luckily I had just a little lingering doubt, so I held off waiting for actual user reviews of the new product. And boy am I glad that I did. A BBQ website that I frequent has a long thread on all of the issues with the Timberline, and the lack of customer support from Traeger.

    So I purchased my Rec-Tec mini, and I'm very glad that I did. I've only had it a few weeks, but it has worked flawlessly, and the food that comes off of the grill is the best I've ever cooked.

    Thank you Rec-Tec for making a superior product that does what you claim, and for offering top-notch support.

    My only regret is that I waited this long to get my Rec-Tec!

  39. Rec Tec Recommendation

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2017

    I've considered a pellet smoker for a long time. I have used large cast iron smokers, propane smokers, steel barrel smokers and cheap charcoal smokers. I would rate the Rec Tec among the very best. It is easy to use, easy to manage and produces excellent flavor. I can't imagine smoking meats any other way now that I have tried the Rec Tec! Best of all, the mini really is portable! I can load it on the back of the 4-Runner and take it to the lake!

  40. Great Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2017

    The Rec Tec Mini is great pellet grill which has a wonderful temperature control that very accurately holds your desired temperatures. You can become a barbecue master anywhere thanks to how easily portable the mini is.

  41. Can't beat the quality or customer service period!!!!

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2017

    I'm new to smoking , but I did a ton of research and asked around. REC TEC by far came in first place in things that are important to me. Which is QUALITY merchandise, EXCELLENT customer service and support, REASONABLE prices and REC TEC totally exceeded all my expectations at every level. Everything I've cooked on it so far chicken wings, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, pizza, ribeyes, and a brisket flat has been extremely easy and delicious. Grills and smokes PERFECTLY!!!!! I would totally recommend this to anyone, experienced or novice. I'm looking forward to trying their rubs and sauces as well. If you like smoked meats and want to grill with one tool then this is it.


    Posted by on 29th Jul 2017

    For 7 years I have tried 3 times to buy the 680 grill. But after saving my money all 3 times some very large expenses caused me to have to use the money for something more important. I know you have to be asking, "What's more important than a new Rec-Tec 680 Grill? (Well 4 knee replacements and two beautiful daughters wedding later)!!!!!

    I still did not have the money I needed! Well, I knew the only way I was ever going to get your smoker was to get the Mini 300. In my mind I was making a "HUGE" sacrifice, but boy oh boy was I wrong! Since the girls are now married and not living at home any more, I did not need as big of a smoker / grill. I can still smoke for up to four people with the extra shelf so all is well!!!!

    All of the extra products I got as part of the package are "GREAT". I love the rubs and the BBQ, the bottom shelf is very handy and I love the extra cooking shelf for more smoking area, it almost doubled my cooking surface, and those wonderful solid wood pellets.....

    I have only had it 2 weeks so far. I have done two fantastic ribs, a pork butt, several great wings and 4 batches of the best jerky (sliced and burger) I have ever had, along with several fantastic burgers and some wonderful thick pork chops. And the reverse sear rib-eye’s were to die for, I think it is called "Stake Heaven". I really like the 2 sear greats for the stakes and the chops. It has also been great on holding the tempter. I have checked it with my probe and it has always been spot on!

    A couple of years ago I bought a Master Built smoker because it was less money and it did a wonderful job, but nothing like my Mini 300 is doing. It"s so much easier. Pour in the pellets, close the lid and walk away!!!!

    Also the customer service is fantastic!!!!!!! I messed up on something and thought I ruined my new smoker, but it was nothing and they walked me through the reset and all was good.

    I could go on and on but I think you get what I am getting at. Don't sell the Mini RT300 short. It does everything that the 680 will do, and I also love that it is so portable.

    Through those 7 years with out a smoker I looked at a lot of other smokers but always came back to the Rec-tec because of the quality and the great reviews on the grill and the customer service.

    You don't have the extra money get this, Forget the Traeger and all of the other cheap quality grills (that you will pay more for) and get the RT300. "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT. Dan Lewis ><>

  43. why did i wait so long ?

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    Received my RT-300 couple weeks ago and have already used it several times . Product was packaged very well and easy to season and set up. Everything I have cooked or smoked turned out great. This thing is fool proof ! The maverick 735 that I purchased with it makes it easy to monitor the temp of the grill and meat without going out and checking well worth the money. The thing I had to learn is to plan my cooks it takes time for a good brisket or pork butt . I am glad I did my research and chose Rec Tec best quality for the money .

  44. Buy it once and get a rec tec

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    I recently purchased a mini for the camper & I am in love with the performance. I have owned a traeger elite for years and this mini blows it away, from the ability to get past 500 degrees and it's ability to maintain temp with smart grill technology. I am really impressed and did not realize rec Tec is leaps and bounds ahead of traeger. I exclusively use the mini now at home and in the camper. The traeger is done put a fork in it.

  45. Mini or Full Size ?

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    I would definitely not buy the mini again. It is too small to hold a basket of mixed vegetables and a strip steak. But I would get the full size Rec Tec because it is well made, the thermostat controls are excellent and the pellet auger works flawlessly. And the results compared to a non-pellet grill are amazing. Steaks are so tender and grill marks made with the grill racks (costs extra, but worth it) are perfect. Using pellets is work free. The best surprise - cleaning is a breeze. The grates just wipe clean.

  46. Best Customer Service bar none!

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Coupled with the best product, Rec Tec has the best customer services I've ever experienced. I've been cooking on my mini for over a year (approx 180 hrs) and just had an issue with it. The customer service rep diagnosed the problem, set up to sent replacement parts all within 5 mins. All under warranty!!! Rec Tec truly stands behind its product!

  47. Excellent smoker !!!

  49. consistent temperature

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    Love my grill, great quality my buddy got a traeger at the same time I got my rt300 the RT is a lot thicker steel put a temp probe in both the traeger temp swings where a lot bigger than the RT. My only complaint was the legs we're not as sturdy as I would like them to be, but the bottom shelf fix that .

  50. RT 300

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    Straight out of the box this smoker was ready to go! After initial break in and seasoning, I put on 2 racks of ribs on and they were amazing! The whole family loved them! I did a whole chicken a few days later and again it was great! I am looking forward to doing a boston butt and eventually a brisket. I was skeptical of the temp control until I hooked up my Maverick to it. Temps were either spot on or within 5 degrees. I love this smoker!

  51. Great quality and customer service!

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2017

    Not only is Rec Tec grills the best out there, but so is their customer service! When I received my Mini the box looked like it had been drug down the road and the box handle had been ripped. Despite great packaging I believe the postal carrier dropped it off the truck resulting in a small dent to the bottom control section of the grill. I already had a family cookout planned the next day knowing I was receiving the delivery, so sending it back was not an option due to it needing to be used. When I reached out to Rec Tec they instantly sent me a replacement part free of charge! I have since smoked many amazing meals feeding upwards of 10 people, but you have to add the top shelf to do so! I'll be purchasing a 680 in the future, but I love the Mini and have no regrets on the purchase. I can not recommend Rec Tec grills enough!

  52. works great even for a beginner

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2017

    I have very little experience with grilling and am really enjoying using my pellet grill smoker. I have done ribs several times and they turned out great and I am moving on to try brisket next. Also did some fish which was good.

  53. oh yeah!!!!!!

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    I am so happy that I pulled the trigger on the Rec Tec RT300 being my first pellet grill!! I have had it 13 days and have already cooked 5 complete meals on it, ribs, brisket, pork belly burnt ends, tri tip and tomahawk steaks have all turned out great !!! This kind of versatility out of something so easy to move around is hard to beat, not to mention top quality customer service!! I highly recommend this grill !!!!

  54. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    I cook just about everything in this grill. No reason to turn on the oven to cook indoors in the middle of a heatwave. I love the fact that I don't have to constantly stoke the fire, leaves me more time with the family.

  55. Best Mini Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    I bought the RECTEC MINI because I wanted to try a pellet grill, this is the first grill I have owned. After researching pellet grills and looking at some at our local stores and talking to RECTEC customers I decided to try the RECTEC and chose the MINI because of its size and the fact it's just me and my wife. I was very happy with my grill, it's built very well, very sturdy, and looks real nice. It's so easy to cook on and gets up to temp fast, it also maintains the temp. Having folding legs and handles makes it easy to take on trips. One last thing, CUSTOMER SERVICE, you won't find better customer service then RECTEC customer service, they respond to questions just about any time, even on weekends when most people are using there grills.
    Thank you RECTEC TEAM, Great customer service for a great product.

  56. What a company!

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    Not only is the RecTec the best grill on the market , it has to be the most amazing customer service oriented company also. To know Ron or Ray is a wonderful experience in itself. They are second to none! Keep on grillin' all, my RecTec withdrawals are over.

  57. Now I am the BBQ king

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    Love my grill. All my food taste better and it was good before on my old dinosaur pit. Had trouble with controller and called up on Sunday afternoon. Someone answered my call and talked me through reset process.
    I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

  58. Excellent product

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2017

    This grill was very easy to put together and is user friendly. Excellent customer service and this is a very good grill.

  59. Wish I'd have heard about Rec- Tec years ago.

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2017

    This is the best grill I've ever owned. The amount of money I've wasted on gas grills that last a year or two before they fall apart. I've tried to make food that tasted good but never succeeded until I got my Mini. The flavor of the meat is so much better. Also the customer service is the best. What other company personally calls to tell you that your unit has shipped and gives the details about shipping.

  60. perfect little smoker

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    Grill was easy to set up. Very good quality very sturdy better quality than others grills. Used several times now everything came out excellent. Would recommend this to anyone looking for one. Bought this grill to take when go camping.

  61. Outstanding mobile wood pellet grill!

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    This is my first wood pellet grill and it has exceeded my expectations for cooking quality and ease of use. As the fact that it's portable is a bonus. I highly recommend the mini!

  62. Outstanding

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    I did a lot of research and bought the Mini in April and haven't regretted it yet anything I cook comes out amazing, I have done 3 briskets and have been told it is the best brisket they ever had. I had the igniter go out and they sent me a new one right away. The customer service is great and the live feeds are fun also.

  63. love my rectec mini

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    Was on the fence for which to buy and ended up settling on the mini as I almost always just cook for my wife and I. Took me less than an hour unbox and set up. Most of the time was spent unboxing and making sure I didn't miss anything as I was extremely surprised the unit came fully assembled. Just needed to unbox the grill grate, fire pot deflector, drip tray and bucket.

    Did my burn in a few nights later and have grilled 2-3 times a week since I got it in early July. Have done brisket, babybacks, stuffed checken breast, steaks, and russet potatoes on it this far.

    Temp maintains well and it gets super hot very quick if you decide to open it up to 500+.

    I will say be wary if you are cooking large and fatty steaks on the sear plates. I have had 2 minor grease fires running the unit close to 550, but I am almost certain that it was just due to all the fat dropping onto the drip pan and it being extremely hot.

    If you get the sear plates, there is honestly no need to crank it above 500. The plates get much hotter than the unit (as advertised) so just searing an extra 10 seconds a side running the unit at 500 vs. 550 is plenty.

    Overall would give this a 5 as the mini works exceedingly well and has far exceeded my expectations.

  64. Portability

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    I have the RT680 and recently got the mini. All I can say is it is awesome. For smaller cooks I use the mini because it can get up to temperature a lot quicker, and I love the fact that it's portable !!! Nothing like having family ask you to bring your grill over to cook at their house, LOL. RecTec lifer here, great product, great company.

  65. best grill ever

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    this grill is the best we eat almost all meals on it now.
    we have even made cookies at the lake on it. it is definitely a great purchase have only had a month and we plan on upgrading to the larger model.

  66. FANTASTIC. better than advertised

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    It made my first time smoking a blast everything came out great. THANK YOU

  67. Rec Tec Wood Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    This grill works great....worth the money !


    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    The mini is my favorite bbq. I have a built in propane, a green egg and a charcoal grill& Green Mountain Grill at another location. The Mini is the one I use the most and like the best. Easy to use, great HIGH temperature and very consistent temperature setting hold.
    Well done RECTEC! Keep smoking.

  69. Outstanding

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    I have apparently been living under a rock for the past 10 years as the wood pellet grill industry has taken off. I learned about the concept from a relative who indicated that he has purchased one. I then spent about two weeks researching the concept and the various brands ... reading numerous reviews and watching lots of YouTube videos. The one brand that kept coming to the top was the RecTec. So I decided to get rid of my propane grill and my electric smoker and purchase a RecTec. I really wanted the 680 but I live in a townhouse with small decks and there is just the two of us. Given those issues, I opted for the RecTec mini since it was only the size that was different and not the features of the grill. I have been 100% pleased with my purchase. There was a small issue with the original RecTec mini but their fantastic customer service shipped me a new grill immediately and problem was resolved. RecTec is a fantastic wood pellet grill that I use for grilling (GrillGrates !), baking and of course, smoking. I would recommend the RecTec to anyone looking to purchase a wood pellet grill.

  70. Best grill I ever used!!

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    We grill a lot in my family this is the easiest way to grill. You won't regret it if you buy one. Love it!!

  71. Sold on Rec Tec

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    I have been researching wood pellet grills as well as talking with owners of different brands of grills. I am very happy to have chosen the Rec Tec Mi no! I have used it about 5 times a week as I have tried different meats and sides to get a feel for the grill! Everything has been delisxious! This grill is easy to use and clean up!

  72. awesome

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    So far cooked a brisket and 14# turkey that was a tight fit but came out awesome

  73. Rec Tec Mini best investment in a very long time

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    The Rec Tec Mini has been like a dream. In less than 10 days we have cooked ribs, pork butt, Tri tip roast, Rib Eye steaks, Country style ribs, burgers and even pizza. Everything has turned out excellent! Will be grilling much more frequently than ever before!

  74. Great smoker/grill

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    Easy to use and cooks the best tasting food you can get!

    The quality and fit of the cover for the RT-300 is amazing as well.

    Wish I had ordered the bottom shelf (will in the future) and it would be nice to have a front shelf option (I'm sure it'll happen!)

  75. Quality grill, at an affordable price.

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    Quality construction ✔️
    Holds temps ✔️
    User friendly ✔️
    Affordable ✔️
    Looks great ✔️
    A great grill for anyone! Quality construction that makes Traeger look like a child's toy. Controller holds temps within very tight. I would recommend to anyone from new grill era to seasoned pit masters.

  76. best small smoker

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    I can only give 4 out of 5 stars due to the handle not installing correctly on the outside of the grill. That being said the smoker lives up to all my expectations and more. I could easily replace my charcoal grill with this thing. I smoked the best pulled pork I have ever tasted and pretty much everything else I've tried has turned out above average.

  77. Fantastic smoker/grill

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    After waiting for back orders to be filled for RECTEC mini, I received my order. So simple to get started...lock legs in place, insert "innards" in place and doing 1 hour 400 degree burn in I was smoking. Temp control spot on. The smoker/ grill was as good as all the reviews I read. Very satisfied customer


    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    I can not be more satisfied with this grill!...High quality grill for an excellent price!...Excellent service!...ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!...Thanks!

  79. Rec Tec Fan !!! Onlly the Begining !!!

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    Every now and then a great product comes along and creates excitement and its own buzz that is undeniable. I recently discovered pellet grills and after an extensive look I chose Rec Tec. I love how delicious cooking over wood makes the food taste, no flare ups, setting and cooking at any temperature you like, consistent temp control, no need to hassle with charcoal. Push a button set the temp and you are set. The Mini is the perfect size for us. I have discovered cooking out again and not just on weekends. Unlike with charcoal I would cook a lot of food to not waste charcoal, you can cook two hamburgers (for just me and my wife) and only use the pellets you need. Remarkable quality. I love love love my Rec Tec !!!

  80. Never "grilled" before

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    I've never had a reason in my nearly 40 years of marriage to be the one o use the "grill" since my wife loves to cook and is so good at it. A friend recently purchased a competitor's smoker and told me how enjoyable it was to cook for his extended family every weekend. It was time to replace our propane grill so I went to work to find a smoker I might be able to use. Rec Tec jumped to the top of the list. I'd have to say it's everything I wanted and hoped it to be. My wife was a little surprised I wanted to spend so much, but now wouldn't have it any other way as I'm smoking at least 3 to 4 times a week! Only one minor complaint. With all the other options available, why is there no front shelf available for the mini?

  81. Wish I would've gotten one years ago...

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Learning to enjoy cooking BBQ'n again!!! As I've become more"time tested" I found myself losing interest in what had been a favorite pastime.
    The near constant attention required by my charcoal kettle became more and more of a chore.
    With my RecTec, the fire is back!!!
    In the 10 days since receiving my grill,I've smoked 22lbs of pork Loin,11lbs of babyback ribs, 8lbs of split chix breasts and 36 chix drummies. Oh ya I grilled burgers in there somewhere too!!
    All have received excellent reviews by some very discerning palates.


    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    This smoker is awesome it far exceeds my expectations, I can't stop using it.

  83. Great grill

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Great little grill to carry camping

  84. Great cooker!

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Very pleased with my RecTec Mini. Works just as advertised, could not be happier.
    Also these people stand behind their product, I had a problem with the paint on my unit, after a text to RecTec describing my issue, they requested some pics which I sent.
    My unit was replaced with a new one in less than 8 days. RecTec paid for return shipping of my original unit.
    Great people to do business with.
    Super smoker grill.

  85. Great Little Grill RT-300

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Was unsure of buying site unseen, but the quality is well above the rest in this price range. Great smoke in 225-300 range, was worried about that after reading some reviews. So far it has worked great and so much easier to use than other types of smokers, just set it and go. Temp stays steady at what I set. Could not be happier, now just waiting for football to start.

  86. Great little grill

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    I had a bit of a rough time at the start. But the tech support got me going right away. I have cook several different meals and heard no complaints from the crew. Well now I thinking about getting a few extra part; extra shelf and grill for searing. should have just got them from the start.

  87. happy in Tennessee

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    happy in Tennessee I just recently purchased the Riec tech 300 and Can say it was a great choice Im a handicap person living in a wheelchair but I still love to grill and the rec tec 300 makes it all very possible Because it is very easy to operate from my chair It was a great choice for me and I think would be for anyone that still loves to be outside grilling that Might have a handicap. The people at Rick tech are very supportive and very helpful

  88. Love it!

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    My husband bought the large smoker earlier this year and I purchased this one as a Father's Day gift for him. We always loved to cook on charcoal but it was a pain to clean and prepare the grill. We cook on our Rec-Tec's almost every day. Food always tastes delicious. Plus, I have less mess in my kitchen now. We would buy Rec-Tec's products over and over again. They are definitely worth the investment.

  89. new to smoking

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    I had a kettle charcoal grill for 6 years and it eventually died. My colleague who is a professional and takes part in BBQ competitions convinced me to buy a smoker because of its many advantages. I looked up different companies and ended up buying the Rec Tec. It was on back order, came after 3 weeks but its already assembled for you. Amazing!, i had ordered an extra shelf. Youtube vdos are available on ow to set it up. Very easy to use. No confusions!. I have tried lamb, chicken and fish and i can say, i have had the juciest of meats ever. Next project is beef ribs!

  90. Better Than Expected

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    First time "wood griller/smoker" guy. Did a ton of research and at the end decided the REC TEC Mini would be my grilling partner. Boy, did I make a great choice!! Even getting famous in the family circle for the place to be for a GREAT smoked anything I choose to serve. While I'm learning the goodness of "low & slow" grilling/smoking, I'm quickly moving from "pretender to contender" ....because REC TEC makes it SO EASY!! Customer Service was outstanding handling a part that was damaged in shipment....sent replacement same day without hesitation!! Can't go wrong with this Company, it's products, service and people who care about your barbecuing success!! For those on the fence....stop wringing your hands and just get the grill....you won't be disappointed!!!

  91. Why did I wait!

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    I have been grilling and BBQing for over 15 years and am blown away with the Rec Tec. The mini is perfect for me and my family. I have had it one week and used it every night. I have cooked ribs brisket chicken and burgers and the family rate them the best I have ever cooked. What are you waiting for order one today!!!


    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017


  93. Best Grill Purchase Ever!

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    This grill was purchased for my husband for a Father's Day gift from myself and my son. It was on back order but arrived at a perfect time when we returned from a vacation. We have already completed ribs, turkey breast and brisket and it has been amazing. We are having fun looking for recipes and perfecting the techniques. This mini-size has been the right size for a family of three. Would definitely recommend the Rec Tec Grill. The Web-site and personnel that took our order were great!..

  94. Awesome grill / smoker

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    We bought the 300 to replace a gas grill that only lasted
    3 years, my to be son in law suggested a rec tec I was reluctant but went ahead and bought the 300 and I must say
    I was impressed!! we use a cookshack smo66 in our restaurant daily ,for a home smoker/grill the 300 rocks...
    you won't be disappointed!

  95. Works very well - great results

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    Works as advertised. started out trying Italian sausage and hamburgers, and they came out juicy with a nice slightly smoky taste. Then I tried a 7.75 lb brisket, and it turned out spectacular. Nice smoke ring and juicy. Took 10hrs total (low & slow), and there was a cloud burst rainstorm during the last half hour, but the results were impressive. Pellet use and the amount of ash are very low. Like how the fan cycles at low temps to increase the smoke. Next on the grill: Turkey!

  96. Great grill

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    I am very happy with the mini. It does everything that my 680 does, and I can pack it in my toy hauler and live the Rec Ted lifestyle wherever I go. Thanks for making a great product.

  97. Best Temp Control Ever

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2017

    From first cook to today's cook, grill makes me look like a pit master.

  98. best balm smoker out there

    this smoker love it love it gr8 job guys

  99. Best Fathers Day gift

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2017

    I purchased the RT-300 as a gift for my dad for fathers day. I called ahead and picked it up from the office on my way to a family reunion. The person that assisted me in the office helped me carry it to my car, helped me unpack it since it wouldn't fit in my car any other way, and helped me load it up. They even threw in a bag of pellets. I unloaded it and immediately did the burn in and a couple hours later did a 18 hour cook of about 15 pounds of pork butt for pulled pork. It worked flawlessly and we used it multiple other times during the week. My dad has since brought it home and has made many things, including "the best ribs I have ever made". It is built well and the customer service with the buying process was second to none. I love how fast it come up to temp and plan on adding the mini to my 680 in the near future.

  100. Bad Ass...... Easy, Fun, Gr8 tasting foods,

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    Too simple to use. Took it to N.C. camping this last few days.
    It is easy to move around.
    Would definitely buy again.
