  1. Set it and forget it smoked BBQ..!

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2017

    The RecTec was delivered during the Hurricane, left on my front porch by UPS. My neighbor moved it for me to avoid flying RecTec. When I returned home I unpacked it , fired it up. I love nothing to assemble and ready to start as soon as you get it out of the box. Simple, set the temperature, no more worrying about flame up and ruining my BBQ dinner.

    I love it and would recommend to my friends. So far I have grilled steaks , smoked Ribs and smoked Pork Tenderloin. All great.

  2. Awesome customer service

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2017

    I purchased this unite for my wife. When I received the unit I found that it had been dropped and had damaged the lid of the unit even though it was very well packaged. The setup of the unit was easy and simple. I would however suggest that on the outside of the shipping box that you add un-packing the grill instructions. That was the most lengthy part of the setup... getting it out of the box. It would be VERY helpful. I got the unit setup in about 10 minutes. On Monday I placed a call to Rec Tec customer service to describe the damage to the lid and tray part. No one answered the phone due to the fact that Hurricane Irma was about to hit. On Tuesday I received a call from Rec Tec. They shipped out immediately a new lid and tray. I was told to go ahead and use the grill till the new parts had arrived. That night my wife cooked bacon wrapped chicken breast. Awesome! A few days later I notice one more thing had been damaged. The antenna to the wireless temperature had been broken off due to the same mis-handling by the shipping company. I sent an email to Rec Tec with a picture of the damaged item. Within about 10 minutes I had received an email showing the new unit being shipped out. The grill is simple and easy to use. Setup is a snap. The food is wonderful. Customer service is over the top! I'm just sorry that Rec Tec has to handle service calls that were caused by the shipping company.

  3. Amazing!!!

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    So far I've done ribs, wings, drumsticks and I'm very impressed. Keeps accurate temp, gives good smoke at lower heat, and my the food has turned out great every time. Looking forward to my next smoke!

  4. Outstanding

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    It just plain works flawlessly. Keep temperature rock-solid, easy to use, clean and maintain. Rec-Tec also has phenomenal customer service. They have a customer for life.

  5. Greatest Grill on the Market

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    This is the best grill we have ever had .
    The craftsmanship is above and beyond what we had ever thought and the burn controls are dead on .
    To top it off the service from RecTec is 5 star

  6. Great Smoker

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    This smoker is the perfect size for us as we don't grill for larger groups. The optional shelf gives us more than enough room to smoke a brisket or a pork butt plus ribs or wings etc. Quality build legs seem a little light but time will tell. I've checked the actual temperature versus what is shown and it is normally right on, I haven't seen it vary by more than a degree. Customer service is exceptional.

  7. awesome

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2017

    this grill is the best

  8. Absolutely worth every penny.

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2017

    My cousin, Matt Bundy of Tolono, IL recommended this unit to me over 5 years ago. I had been cooking on a CharBroil gas grill for over 10 tears. By far, the best investment I've made in that time span. The quality of the unit itself far exceeds anything I've found at the Home Depot, Fleet Farm, Menards, ANYWHERE! I believe I'm the 7th person he referred to your product. He deserves a hat, shirt, banner or something.

  9. Awesome grill Awesome service

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2017

    Grill exceeded my expectations.If you are a griller you owe it to yourself to get a Rec Tec . Customer service is awesome . Not just one , but everyone I had interaction with treated me as I was most important to them. It made me remember what being a valuable customer feels like. Thanks Rec Tec

  10. Its a jewel !

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    Perfect size for my needs. 2 butts no problem. 3 chickens no problem. 12 to 15 burgers no problem. Holds the temperature very well. Had shipping damage and was taken care of quickly and no questions asked. New piece in 5 days and that included the weekend. Only problem I have is the hopper is a little small. Would like to see the ability to buy a hopper extension so I can put more pellets in for longer cooks.

  11. Outstanding Product and Customer Service!

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    This product is rock solid and well built. The quality and workmanship of my smoker are impressive. The product worked flawlessly with no issues. On top of that, the customer service is the best!!! Called a few times to address some minor issues and questions, and wow...they take all calls or emails very serious and respond immediately. A great customer experience with this company! I highly recommend.

  12. its great!!!!

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    first pellet grill ..learning how to use it so far its been wonderful ...thank you


    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017


  14. Great product

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    Purchased a month ago. Temperature stayed within 1 degree of desired temperature. Easy to use easy to clean.

  15. Fantastic little pellet grill

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2017

    Could not be happier with our new RECTEC mini pellet grill. After our old pellet grill finally died, I wanted one a little more smaller but with much more quality. I am spoiled with this new one. Just turn it on and set your temperature and enjoy!

  16. Simply The Best

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    It's Simply the BEST pellet grill in it's price range. And it is now my go to grill for 90% of my grilling needs and I have 4 different bbq's: propane, Kamado, a portable charcoal and now a pellet grill. I've done brisket, pull pork, ribs (pork and beef) and seafood in the last couple of months. Friends have said the food was amazing. The PID temp control is a blessing to have on a grill especially when there is a long grill and you need some sleep. There was a short learning curve but after that it was easy as pie and incredibly reliable and no need to constantly check the food. I salvaged a table from a piece of equipment from work and mounted it to the grill and added a seal around the door and now she is perfect. A definite 5 stars.

  17. Instant Success

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    As a first-time owner of a smoker, I was apprehensive as to the difficulty. The start-up of my new unit was easy to follow the basic steps. My first adventure was smoking chicken breasts and they turned out great with practically no effort on my part. Next time I smoked pork loin, again with success. The Rec Tec smoker held its temperature throughout. The biggest surprise I had was how little pellets were actually used--my expectation was that it would take a lot more pellets. I'm tremendously pleased with my Rec Tec smoker.

  18. Love my Mini

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    The constant temperature is the key for me and I love using my "mini"! Always complimented on the finished "smoke" and makes me want to try new things. And you couldn't ask for better customer service!


    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017


  20. touch & feel

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    I use this grill for camping it's the best small grill out there it breaks down and is very small and it saves me a room it's made very well and performs very well

  21. amazingly easy to cook exellent smoked food!

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    I have really injoyed my rec tec mini. Easy to use and makes great food!

  22. best little smoker in texas

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    Started with something simple, boneless skinless chicken breast. Seasoned then put on at 250 for 1.5 to 2 hrs. I was sure i overcooked cause didnt have a temp probe. Pulled them off covered with foil maybe 30 minutes. Meat was moist and smokey,i took some to work for another opinion everyone that tasted said it was very good. Another test wanted to try something not usually done, cook a ribeye low and slow. About one lb. 250 for 1.5 hrs. I was sure it would be chewy, was wrong. Didnt need a knife . Great smoke taste to. The cover for the mini is heavyduty just like they said. Fully assembled out of box, love that. Look forward to sunday when i just push that button and watch this baby work.

  23. RT-300 Mini -the Best!

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    Having owned the RT-680 for couple years, it was with no doubt we buy the RT-399 Mini when we wanted to add a smaller unit. We are as thrilled with the RT-300 as we are our RT-680! We have complete confidence every cook, not worrying if temp will fluctuate & ruin food. Consistant every time. And you can count on the staff for any questions you have. The grills & company are the best! Would recommend this to everyone - do not waste time/money on any other brand. REC TEC is #1.

  24. best grill on the market and I should know...

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    I have had many group parties on my back deck (sizes 5-35). I always receive rave BBQ reviews from my guests because of the smokey, precision temperature with no-flame pellet grill!!!

  25. Best smoker ever. highly recommended

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2017

    Highly recommended! Best smoker I have ever owned.

  26. Excellent smoker.

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    Coming from the big green egg I was concerned about the amount of smoke I would get from the pellet type grills. However in the last 2 weeks or so since I've had it I've been pleasantly surprised to find that I actually end up getting more reliable smoke flavor using this grill than I ever did with the green egg. My RecTec mini (RT-300) seems to do a great job with producing it. On the RT-300 model, the Xtreme smoke feature is built into the temperature controller when set between 180F and 250F. You can hear the fan cycle into this mode and it is pretty obvious visually.
    My main reason for choosing RecTec is the build quality and the customer support. Thus far, I haven't needed to call RecTec about any problems. However, just being a part of several BBQing forums and social media groups, it's obvious that they are always taking care of their customers if there are any issues. Love the grill, thanks again RecTec!

  27. Where has this grill been all our lives!!

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    We absolutely LOVE our new smoker! It's easy to use and big enough to make a huge piece of meat but small enough to take with us on trips.

  29. "Best Grilling l Have Done In 57 Year's"

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2017

    I bought this grill for smoking meat only and planned to keep my charcoal grill for grilling steaks , burgers and chops. After purchasing the grill grates I tried a steak on the Rec-Tec mini grill and was treated to the best steak of my life. I'll be getting rid of my charcoal now and I won't even miss it. All of the food I cooked on the Rec-Tec has been the jucyest and the most tender food I have ever cooked in my life. I promise you that this will be the last and only grill you own. I'm glad I gave Rec-Tec mini grill a chance because I have been into charcoal cooking for my whole life and thought that it couldn't get any better, Well it did. Give Rec-Tec a try and I promise that you won't regret it. Join the happy smoking crusade. "Thank You Rec-Tec!"

  30. Better than I expected!

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I am a BBQ judge and have seen all kinds of grills. I had a big off set smoker tha I just couldn't make work. I talked to a lot of cookers about wha to get. One of them suggested Rec-Tec. I took a look and liked what I saw. I was impressed whe I got it out of the box. I was even more impressed after I used it. Did two briskets on it that I feel were competition worthy for my first using it. I have never used a smoker with any kind of good results before. I can't get over how easy it is to use. I am traveling in my motor home for the next few weeks. My smoker is in the back of my Jeep. I plan to use it a lot. Thanks Rec-Tec.

  31. Start Smoking in 10 mins

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I bought this smoker after a friend recommended it highly. And now I recommend it to everyone :-)

    Set up took 2 mins and I was smoking a brisket in the next hour.

    I messed up once and some ash got collected in burn pot which created more smoke than usual. I contacted them and got 2 calls back. They stand behind their product 100%

  32. Mini300

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    Have had for about a month now and used every weekend. Very easy set up. Have called customer service several times with probably dumb questions I did not find on FAQ page and they are awesome, called once or twice on Sunday and there was no answer but, on Monday I had calls from two reps who were responding to their missed call log, now that is excellent customer service. Cooked pork butt turned out great, pork loin great, chicken great. Tried their meatloaf recipe one with torn bread not panco crumbs and will probably never put in oven again. Perfect size since it is only me, glad I chose this brand over the others I had been reviewing for a while. If you are thinking about it just do it you will be glad you did !!

  33. Easy, perfect grilling and smoking

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

    In the short time I have owned this grill (maybe 3 weeks), I have cooked 2 whole chickens, smoked a brisket, and grilled burgers. The design of the grill is awesome in its simplicity. Easy to use, easy to clean and cooks everything perfectly. The portability of the Mini has been very useful. Naturally a longer period of time will reveal durability, but construction is solid and I have no doubts this was worth every penny.

  34. Worlds greastest grill

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

    Simple to use, produces great tasting food, best grill you can get.

  35. 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.

  36. 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

  37. 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.

  38. 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

  39. anniversary present

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    My husband loves it!! Said was best thing I've ever bought for him !! Think I scored !!!

  40. Best Smoker Ever

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    Very simple to use and does an excellent job.

  41. 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

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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!!

  45. 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. :-)

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

  50. Awesome Pellet grill and customer service

    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.

  51. 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!

  52. 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

  53. 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!

  54. 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.

  55. 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!

  56. 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.

  57. should have bought one along time ago

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    Does everything and more than I expected

  58. 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!

  59. 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!

  61. 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.

  62. 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.

  63. good so far

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

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

  64. 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.

  65. 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!

  66. 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.

  67. 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!

  68. 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.

  69. 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.

  70. 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

  71. 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"

  72. 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!

  73. 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!

  74. 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.

  75. 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 ><>

  77. 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 .

  78. 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.

  79. 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.

  80. 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!

  81. Excellent smoker !!!

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Bought a Rec Tec ..... Best decision ever !! Buy one and you'll know why !

  82. awesome x infinity

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    Great great great

  83. 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 .

  84. 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!

  85. 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!

  86. 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.

  87. 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 !!!!

  88. 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.

  89. 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.

  90. 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.

  91. 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.

  92. 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.

  93. 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.

  94. 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.

  95. 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!

  96. 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.

  97. 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.

  98. 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.

  99. 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.

  100. FANTASTIC. better than advertised

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

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