This is my first pellet grill, I always been a gas grill person. From the first time using it everything I have cooked has turned out outstanding. Cooked salmon and my wife said it was the best she has ever had. I did a brisket for the first time ever and had guest over and they all said the best brisket they ever had and said I should enter a cook off. So I say this Rec Tec Mini is great you set temp and leave it.
Posted by Ed on 27th Apr 2017
Had the grill for three weeks and I am loving it. It shipped okay and put it together easily. Worst problem I had was that one of the bags of silica beads broke open and they were everywhere. I have done ribs and a pork loin on it and all I can say is WOW. All you do is set the temperature and it takes care of itself. My only regret is that I bought the small portable one and while it is large enough for a family I will be buying a larger one in the near future.

This is my first pellet smoker and the always accurate temperature makes it easy to smoke food and do other things simultaneously. Prior to this grill I had to tend to the fire too often which was time consuming and often resulted in temperature swings. Those days are over with the RecTec. I am convinced that a pellet grill is the best choice for most homeowners. I look forward to trying different foods this summer on my grill.

I love this, I have a Mini and it's the perfect size as it is just the two of us, I spoke to Trey this afternoon about a concern about the exhaust ports as far wind and temp fluctuations, he thinks it is the wind affecting the fan. He mentioned about proto type port deflectors for rain which are going into production. My guess is these will be a part of the new Minis as rain gets in as well. I believe that Rec Tec should give me a pair of these when they come out as this is a shortcoming to the product. Some people have put the smokestack that can be bought and covered the ports and I have considered this as well.

I am addicted to cooking on my Rec Tec!! Never again will I go back to regular grill. Thank You!!

I was introduced to pellet grills several years ago by a relative . We liked the Ease of use but didn't like how they liked their meat. We recently moved to a new house and didn't bring our old grill with us so I started researching grills smokers and pellet grills.long story short I saw you YouTube videos on why rec etc was the better grill for the money and I couldn't agree with you more. Now people at work and relatives are inquiring about your grill. Thank you so much for making this product so well and for the online recipes they are wonderful. Sincerely Cecil Underwood

Had this grill for just a short time, but I'm impressed. It clearly hold the temperature steady, which in other grills is almost impossible. Well built, and love the portability

Used my new RT-300 several times now. The grill performed flawlessly. Temperature remained right on set point and the food came out perfect. Believe the hype about REC TEC grills! Extremely happy with my purchase!
Posted by Dusty on 24th Apr 2017
I've had my mini for about 3 weeks and cooked numerous items on it including frozen pizza and lasagna. Everything has turned out excellent. I was skeptical, but every review I've read is definitely true. Would never go back to propane.

The Rec Tec Mini is awesome from 0 degrees to 500 in 10 minutes great for steaks !
Not to mention one great smoker too.
Posted by C. Hudson on 24th Apr 2017
I recently purchased a REC TEC grill. I must say that I was skeptical as to whether anything could out cook my Big Green Egg. However, I immediately became a fan. Notwithstanding the technology that keeps your food cooking at an even temperature, this grill is virtually mess free. No more buying lalrge expensive bags of coals, scraping out the bottom of the BGE basket after a couple of uses and getting black soot everywere. I'm retiring the BGE for good.....
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Apr 2017
I received my mini about a month ago and so far have done ribs, wings, pizza and burgers. All have come out awesome and my wife even said the pizza and burgers were the best I have cooked.
Posted by Erica Benitez from Houston, TX on 21st Apr 2017
Every review online and YouTube are True!!! I had many doubts before I purchased this little guy, and it's truly impressive on how easy it is to grill for me now. The Quality is top of the line, their customer service is unbelievably the best !!!!!!! I won't think about it twice to get the bigger. Rectec. This is the total package just buy it you won't regret it.... Love it
Posted by Unknown on 21st Apr 2017
Best customer service. THey replaced my mini because of a broke bracket that could have been fixed with a couple of screws. The grill is the grill i have ever owned, easy to use and cooks awsome.
Posted by Unknown on 20th Apr 2017
This is the best grill I have ever had. Have friends who have one of the competitors grills and they agree this is a much better unit.
Posted by wolfgang on 20th Apr 2017
Cooked pork butts, sirloin roast, and brisket so far. Best brisket I've had... Grill stays on temperature through cook. You can start at bedtime and cook through the night without worry. For more smoke flavor choose cookinpellets comp mix.
Posted by Roger Ben on 20th Apr 2017
The grill is simple to use and does an excellent job on all times of grilling and smoking. Couldn't be any happier with it.
Posted by Josh B on 19th Apr 2017
I have been fed up with gas grills for a while now, and have been using mostly charcoal for the last year or so. This grill is so convenient and you get the wood flavor of charcoal without the mess and babysitting. I bought a few cookbooks for pellet grills and am excited to try out some new recipes. The quality seems better than most other brands in the same price range. Love the youtube videos! Keep them coming! I will NEVER go back to propane.

Got mini out of box and went to grilling first thing after initial burn!
Works great and very easy to have perfect grilling experience!
Posted by Unknown on 18th Apr 2017
I have used this grill every weekend since I got it. It is very convenient and easy to use.
Posted by Bob on 17th Apr 2017
I have only used this grill 4 times and all I can say is Wow.
The first thing I made was bacon Candy. I liked it my wife hated it and told me she thought the grill should be returned. I said you didn't like something it was not the fault of the grill. So she said here are 2 chuck steaks show me.
Coated the steaks with 1 part sea salt and 3 parts corn starch and put them in the frig over night. The next day I washed off the salt and cornstarch. I cut away all the fat and sinue coated with a rub. Heated the grill to 550 degrees with cast iron shearing plates on the grill. Placed the steaks on the shearing plates for 4 minutes each side and produced nice tasting steaks that were fairly tender.
the next was some rib eyes, which turned out excellent, then came Salmon filets which were truly restaurant quality.
Now wife Is convinced this is the best grill we have ever had. Believe me she is a tough sell. I am looking forward to gaining more experience with the grill as the more I use the better the meals are becoming.
Posted by Chuck Dirienzo on 17th Apr 2017
I have had gas grills in the past but this grill was by far, the easiest to setup. Unpack the box, remove the packing material and you are ready to go. With the legs collapsed it is very easy to roll around, but a little unsteady on uneven ground (aren't we all). This price can't be beat. I would highly recommend this grill to anyone who doesn't need a monster grill.
Posted by Walter on 17th Apr 2017
This is one great smoker grill. Would say it the best I seen. What makes the grill even better is the personal service team they have. You can call and get a real person at any time you have a question.
Posted by Ron Irwin on 17th Apr 2017
I am very happy with this grill. I have smoked and grilled with it. It is as advertised. Temperature control works great and holds the temp very well. I would definitely recommend this product.
Posted by Gil on 16th Apr 2017
I can't say enough great things about this grill and company. Not only do I love my Rectec, but when I had a problem with with my ignitor rod they went so far above and beyond to help that I was blown away.
Posted by Steve Beaudoin Minot ND on 13th Apr 2017
I have been smoking meat for years but on a larger scale and have always wanted a way to do it and cook for just the two of us. The ease in which I can do this now is amazing and I don't have to babysit the temps. Also wanted a product that would fit into the lower storage on our RV so we could take it with camping. Thanks for a great product we are extremely satisfied up here in the great white north of ND.
Posted by Terry Esteb on 12th Apr 2017
Picked mine up on a visit to Augusta. The people were great. Shopping and comparing makes the Rec-Tec choice obvious. Monster short ribs, chicken, turkey and pork, all just awesome. Just wish they had thrown in a hat,
Posted by Ron & Rita on 12th Apr 2017
Did a little research and decided against a propane BBQ. We puledl the trigger and bought your REC TEC RT300 grill. Could not be happier with it's performance. Cooked up a couple chickens, some San Louis ribs, a tri tip, a 5# rib roast and a 4# blue fin tuna loin so far. Very well built. We're in luv with this smoker/grill.
Seems a little tipsy (top-heavy) when I move it about, but this is my & wife's main grill and wont be moving it far.

The Mini arrived two weeks ago. I have smoked a brisket, smoked a pork loin, baked a pork loin, smoked bone in chicken breast twice, baked a casserole, baked a pizza and grilled burgers using the grill grates. I am so done with propane.
Posted by Michael Wheler on 11th Apr 2017
OUTSTANDING! The best grill I have ever purchased in 50 years. We have grilled and smoked fish, chicken and boston butt. Absolutely perfect every time. We could not be any more pleased. Also, customer service has been great and very helpful when I had a question.
Very impressed with product and service.
Posted by jr from Ohio on 11th Apr 2017
I've had this smoker for 3 weeks but due to my schedule have only been able to smoke ribs and make a pizza so far. The ribs were the best we've ever had and that includes the restaurants that specialize in ribs. The pizza was as good as baked in the indoor oven. Since the Rec Tec only really smokes at temperatures below 350F we did not get a smokey flavor. I am very pleased with it's ease of use and especially how fast it comes up to temperature ( much faster than our indoor oven ). Haven't had a chance to try the pellets from Rec Tec yet. Our smoker came without the pellets due to problems in shipment so we had to buy some locally. Rec Tec sent us more pellets very quickly without us having to call them. They called and e-mailed us that they were aware of the problem and another shipment was on the way. Bottom line here if you haven't already guessed is Rec Tec and the people there are 1st rate along with their products. Best purchase ever.
Posted by Ron L on 10th Apr 2017
This grill is a GREAT product. I love that it maintains the temperature all the time. you can fire it up and walk away until time to take whatever your grilling off. Extremely Pleased!! :-)
Posted by gene jesse on 9th Apr 2017
The grill was shipped and recieved on time. We reached our 500 degrees to sear the steaks very quickly. The first time I used the grill the New York Strip Steaks came out perfect.
I would recommend Rec Tec Grills to everyone!
Posted by Greg Bowman on 8th Apr 2017
I have been using the Rec Tec Mini for about 3 weeks know ( cooked 4 times) and I must say it is so easy to cook on along with providing great tasting food!. Came out of the box with the temperature probe protection piece rattling around and I couldn't see where the piece came from in the instruction booklet so I called and it just so happened that Rec Tec had closed early for a company function ( according to message). I had read numerous other posts about their stellar customer service so I decided to text a picture of the part to the GM along with my question, sure enough within 10 minutes ( or less) I had a response and answer ( I had already figured that piece out). He explained that the piece comes off sometimes during shipping in the box is turned upside down. Thanked him told him that their reputation on customer service definitely made a believer out of me. Have a pork butt on today (1st one on the Rec Tec mini) and can't wait to show it off to my family members later today. Looking forward to many more cooks and I am definitely a convert to their products if it continues to perform as I expect.
Posted by Joseph on 7th Apr 2017
Have nothing to compare it to however I am pleased. Only two minor items that would improve the mini. 1.) The power cord is very stiff and unruly. 2.) Caution is needed when moving as the hopper will tip the grill onto itself, especially when full. AS I said these problems should not deter you from purchase. I waited until I ran 80lbs of pellets through with no problems before I reviewed.
Posted by Tim D. on 7th Apr 2017
I spend all my free time trying to figure out what to smoke next. This grill takes all the worry out of smoking meat. Set the temp, let it pre-heat, place the meat inside and come back hours later.
I'm totally addicted.
Posted by Nick D. on 7th Apr 2017
Three things come to mind. Superior quality, innovative design (easy fold and lock legs on portable model), and most important makes delicious food. This smoker brings the best of a lot of different cooking methods into one. The taste of charcoal broiled food with the speed and ease of using a gas grill. Very happy with my purchase and would make the same decision if purchasing again; however, with the quality and craftmenship of this grill it will probably be the last one I buy!
Posted by Bill Neuman on 5th Apr 2017
I have had my mini for about a year now and absolutely love it. We take it with when we travel in our RV and have taken it on some hunting trips as well. I have recently had an issue with it , and the Rec Tec family stood behind their product with flying colors. Unbelievable service, what a great company, I'm sure you would not get service like this from other pellet grill mfg's as I have read hundreds of reviews prior to purchasing mine. Because of their great service I have repaid the service to their outstanding quality and have talked co-workers , friends and family into purchasing from them as well, and they too are happy , satisfied customers. Keep up the great work Rec Tec.

I purchased this last mini as a gift for my son who is away at college. Great flavor and easy to use...

This grill, in my opinion, is the best available pellet grill, and personally, I've never experienced better service from any company, in any business. These guys are awesome!!!:)
Posted by Doug in Truckee on 1st Mar 2017
Great product. Great service and warranty. At a time when most companies sell you a product with big budget advertising and trade off quality and customer service, Rec Tec delivers. Rec Tec makes a great easy to use pellet smoker.

Work great right out of the box. Have had other smokers but the REC TEC makes everything so easy.
Posted by Terry on 20th Feb 2017
I bought the Rec-Tec smoker and used it a few times. But I had a small problem with it. I contacted Ret-Tec. And they completely went way beyond anything one could ask of a company to fix my problem! I do not believer you could find a better company to buy from. There was no run-around, no dodging, no dog and pony show, no spinning or twisting! They stayed in contact to provide outstanding service to see the problem was fixed to my satisfaction! Now for the Rec-Tec grill. Its like smoking-cooking with a gas stove. Turn it on, set the temp, go enjoy your day. And check back in a few hours to enjoy what you just smoked-cooked on the Rec-Tec! These guys thought of everything and built a practical and hassle free smoker! I could not be more happy with this smoker. And my wife said the ribs were the best that I had ever made! And that is saying quite a bit. Given I cook all the time and believer she is somewhat spoiled! Honestly the Rec-Tec is pretty much mindless to operate! Should it wear out over the years. I would not buy from a different dealer! For two reason, their personal commitment to service is unparalleled. And their product will do everything they claim it does. Don't shop around, get a Rec-Tec, you'll love it! Pass the Ribs please.......
Posted by Adam Miller on 20th Feb 2017
You guys are the best! Customer service was spectacular when asking about which model I should order. Always had a friendly intelligent person answer the phone by the second ring.
Mini 300 is absolutely mind blowing. I cooked everything from Brisket, wings, ribs, mac and cheese to cinnamon rolls and she has performed flawlessly. I think I have 4 of my buddies talked into purchasing a Rec Tec.
Posted by S. Rager on 19th Feb 2017
Better than expected. YouTube channel is an excellent place to get ideas for cooking. Will definitely recommend to others.
Posted by Mike on 18th Feb 2017
Came with a bent temp probe. Called and talked to customer service and quickly received a new one in the mail. We have cooked baby back ribs, spatchcock turkey and venison jerky so far and it all turned out beautifully! Easy to use even in 10 degree weather in northern Michigan! We are very happy with this purchase
Posted by Bryan Knepper, Dunnellon, Fl on 17th Feb 2017
One of the best investments I have ever made. Used to use wood chips and chunks in barrel smokers which required perpetual attention. Now it's prep the food, turn on the grill, add the food to the grill and relax. That's not even the best part! My Rec Tec grill has digital temperature control so there is no need to constantly adjust the temperature inside the grill. It's never been easier to produce great food consistently .

Have own two other pellet grill before the RecTec and wished I would have found RecTec sooner. I think it ultimately was important to have had the other two grills to appreciate how good, and intuitive this grill is. Totally satisfied customer
Posted by Scott on 13th Feb 2017
I bought my Rec-Tec mini in late November and winter in Nebraska isn't always the best time to grill, but I've been able to use it about a dozen times. It's truly worth every penny. It's simple to assemble and set up and it holds the temperature level perfectly. I've been able to produce some incredible brisket, pulled pork and ribs, but the real surprise has been how well it works as a grill, to the point where I'm putting my Weber Genesis on Craigslist. In temperatures around 30-35 I've had no trouble heating it up to 550 and holding that temp. I would definitely suggest buying the sear grates if you plan on doing much high temp grilling as they do seem to make a difference. The mini produces a fairly mild level of smoke but if you like a smokier flavor I suggest the Amaz'n Smoking tube. It's been really fun to experiment with different rubs, flavors of pellets and cooking methods but everything so far has come out great. You will probably spend a little more time cleaning this than a regular grill in terms of vacuuming out sawdust and ash, but that's a pretty minor thing. We bought the mini because it's just the two of us and I didn't want to spend the extra money for the regular size. The mini is fine when it's just us but I wish it was a little bigger so I could put a few more things on at once. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this purchase.
Posted by Norm on 12th Feb 2017
Just had a blizzard 14 in. of snow, usually i'll give up on grilling until it melts, but my new toy is always on my mind, so i cleared a path to my back yard uncovered the 300 got it fired up and 4 of us enjoyed chicken thighs with the honey rub, made some bacon & burgers, strip steaks using the searing kit, well once again AWESOME. If you can afford this grill, but your on the fence, well get off it because this grill is AWESOME. Never used this type of grill till a few weeks ago, i'm like a kid in a candy store and i'm no kid, at 58 LOL...can't believe i'm moving snow to grill. More snow coming, will i do it again LOL..
Posted by GWW on 11th Feb 2017
The RecTex produces great flavor with easy start up and temperature control. Add a remote readout thermometer and cook meats to perfection! I do miss the "charcoal" flavor in some items - but the RecTex is so easy, that's the cooker I seem to nearly always use.
Posted by Norm on 10th Feb 2017
Bought both REC TEC GRILLS, but this is about my 300, easy to get running rite out of the box, nervous to start, hoping it was everything advertised. OH BABY, everything functioned great. played around with the temps and they reacted to the tee. Being from RI. the northeast i was AMAZED, for some reason nobody around here has heard of this grill, if i'm the 1st GREAT, they'll hear a lot from me. Don't mean to be long winded, but my 1st real treat was putting it in my truck for SUPERBOWL Sunday, driving 60 mi. to my bro's house with PIZZA and a 8LB LEG OF LAMB, arrived popped it out of the truck got it running, cooked the PIZZA, then the leg of lamb, i've never seen a GRIN on my brother's face, like i seen after he tasted the LAMB, and not just him, as we are avid OUTDOOR CAMPERS. If there wasn't so much food, we would of cooked on it all day an night. LOVE MY NEW LITTLE BUDDY......LOL......MORE TO COME, THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH. PS.used the greek rub on the lamb
Posted by Mike Simms on 10th Feb 2017
This was my first pellet grill. I always do my homework when shopping for a big ticket item. I get on the internet and research message boards, competitor websites, Facebook, YouTube, and brand vs brand comments. I kept coming back to the Rec Tec, and man am I glad I did. It's easy plug and play made my first brisket smoke taste like the brisket from the smokehouse down the street. Let your kids know now you will be spending their college fund on meat, because it's addicting. However, it's not just about the product, it's also about the people who stand behind the product, and Rec Tec is next to none. You have a problem, they get it fixed. You call, they are there. You have a faulty part, in the mail next day no charge. Not to mention the Rec Tec community on social media. Always there for suggestions, input, and recipes. So, like I said, write the check and get a Rec!!
Posted by Steven on 7th Feb 2017
Ive almost always had a propane grill and it seems like they never last. Ive only recently discovered pellet grills. I did my research and how could i go wrong with a longer warranty then the competiors. After using almost daily i love my rec tec and my wife even says it was a good invesment.
Posted by Schulzter on 7th Feb 2017
Received my RT 300 two weeks ago and have put it the test. First I tried a few pizzas and the Family and Neighbors couldn't believe how good they tasted. Next was a pork loin that came out with a great smoked favor and was so juicy. Cooked up a few sliders for the grand kids and they gobbled them down. Had to try a Tri-Tip and it was a perfect medium rare. For Super Bowl weekend cooked up a Cheese Burger Fatty and Fire Cracker Chicken both were insanely delicious. Rec Tec has taken all the work out of cooking out. No tending a fire, adjusting dampers or flare ups. The best part is how easy and convenient these grills are to use. You don't have to wait for the weekend to enjoy great BBQ.

Works as stated...easy and turns oout a wonderful product. I've cooked burgers, steaks, and a rib roast...all perfect. Love the temperature control system. Great product. Would like a front shelf for it if you ever manufacture them please let me know...I think a many of your customers would purchase this product.
Posted by Tom K. on 30th Jan 2017
After months of doing my homework, looking at different pellet smokers and countless product reviews, I finally purchased the Rec Tec RT-300 and I couldn't be happier. I have used it about four times so far and it lives up to everything that I had read it would. It's a little beast! And so far the customer service is everything I had hoped for. When I first received my smoker and after the delivery driver drove away, I noticed that one of the bull horn handles had been bent in from shipment. I called immediately and another replacement lid was on its way that day! It only took one phone call, no waiting through an automated lineup of choices on the phone, an actual real person! I received the second lid a few days later and that one was damaged as well! Not Rec Tec's fault, and again, after one simple call a replacement was on its way with an apology. Customer service is top notch!
Posted by Ruben reyes on 30th Jan 2017
The absolute best grill for overall grilling. It especially brings your smoking low and slow to the next level . I'd give it a ten star if it was available.. love it ! Love it !
Posted by Unknown on 29th Jan 2017
I researched the mini smoker grills off and on for about a year. I settled on Rec Tec and have no regrets. The grill/smoker works great and their customer service is fantastic.
I've been using my Rec Tec mini for about 6 months now and haven't had a bad cook yet and believe me, I'm capable of poor grilling. The family is very happy with the result.
Posted by Unknown on 28th Jan 2017
I use it every weekday and some on the weekends. I still cook with my Egg when I have more time (better flavors) but this is so much more convenient. Push a button and you're ready to cook. So easy my GF started grilling too.
Posted by Unknown on 27th Jan 2017
Can't say enough good things about this grill of course it's new I want to see how long it lasts I am very hopeful

I was skeptical of the flavor. Because I've always been a charcoal guy. And no it doesn't taste like charcoal but has a great mild smoke flavor when using as a grill. Or I can cook low and slow and get a great smoke flavor. Customer service is top notch. I shopped and compared for 2 years. Finally got the rec Tec. Wished I would have done it sooner.

I have had my Mini for about 2 weeks now. I have done St Louis Ribs, Whole Chicken, Pork Loin, Chuck Roast, and a reversed seared Prime Rib Steak. Every cook came out fantastic. Living in upstate NY the temps have basically been in the low 30's for all my cooks. No matter what temp I set the Mini to, it held the temps all throughout the cook.
I bought a bag of the Rec Tec Ultimate Blend through Amazon Prime, and really like them. They burn very consistent, with very little ash. And the flavor is great.
If your looking for a great pellet grill, the Rec Tec Grills are the ones to consider.

This thing is great never had so much fun bbq-smoking food. I have put the bbq away and the rec tec is here to stay. Have cooked 2 prime ribs that were amazing, chicken, potatoes, pizza. Everything turns out nice and juicy and tons of flavor. What a great product maybe some day moving up to the big boy but for now this will do just fine. The father in law just keeps coming over every weekend for the food.

Researched for almost a year before settling on the rec tec smoker. All the rave about customer service is what finally made me decide on rec tec. I have done a couple cooks with it now and so far it lives up to my expectations. The only downfall I've seen so far is that you don't have the extreme smoke option with the small smoker. I would like to have had a little more smoke flavor in my pork butts. All in all I highly recommend this smoker!

Happy with my grill, however very disappointed that there was no cookbook with it, or available to purchase! A lot of us have never smoked before and need recipes with cooking info. such as temperature to cook different meats at, and also internal temperatures that indicate meat is done! I have a great smoker, but no guidance on how to grill and smoke!!! Very disappointed with this aspect of my purchase!!!

Amazing! Technology meets Wood Smoker / Grill! This small, mighty, heavy duty Grill cooks and smokes like no other that is similar in size! I have both grilled and smoked in 20 degree weather with NO problems... as the technology keeps the pellets managed at just the right pace. Treager is no macth for the REC TECH!

Great Customer service; called twice and was given prompt and helpful answers. The grill comes assembled right out of the box, you only need to do a couple of minor things. The competition requires assembly. I've used it a couple of times already in 32 degree or colder temps and it maintains the heat very nicely. Unit is very heavy duty and built to last. You can tell Rec Tec takes pride in their products and that is refreshing to see.

First of all I never take time to write reviews but this one is worth it! This is my first pellet grill and I will never look back! The grill is amazing and the customer service is out of this world!! You tell me how many companies out there you can call and get a person on the other end in 2 rings?? Trey in customer service is a class act!! If you are even thinking about a new grill no need to look anymore. Thanks again Rec Tec!

The protective packaging was great! I've used it several times and am so pleased with its performance. Even when it was bitterly cold it was able to still maintain temp within 2 degrees of set point. Durable construction, easy fold up legs, ease of use instructions.

Great grill ,been using gas for way to many years.Every thing I put on has been noticeably better. The temp control is spot on.I'll have to learn to not open and check; for all the bad things that happen with gas.

This is the best grill I have ever bought. I us this grill everyday, I have cooked everything I can think of on it. I am a customer for life.

In one word, FANTASTIC.

I'm very impressed with this grill. I own a charcoal box smoker which gives me great results however it is big and a it is a chore to get it set up and up to temperature (about 1 hr). Bought the ReTec mini in December and have used it a lot despite freezing temperatures. have cooked turkey, ribs, chicken, fish, brisket point and pork chops all with excellent results. Up to temp in 10 minutes when it's 30 outside. Everything turned out as well or in some cases better than my box smoker. I have not tried searing, since I do that on my Weber kettle, but I LOVE THIS AS A SMOKER!

Best grill I've ever used.

You can't get a real smoke flavor from anything else. My RecTec Mini puts the best smoke flavor on all my food. If you can put it in the oven, put it in your RecTec. You'll eat better and the wife can get into grilling. RecTec customer service is second to none. It's definitely one of the best things I've bought for my house.

I have owned many grills over the years. Gas grills are nice for control and ease of use. Charcoal grills are great for adding flavor to the meat but you don't have as much control and can be messy to clean up.
After using my new Rec Tec grill for a few months and cooking everything from salmon, burgers, steak, chicken, and smoking a turkey breast, it all tastes great on my Rec Tec grill. The meat is juicy with a lot of flavor that the wood pellets add. You can cook meat using the same recipe with say hickory and get a slightly different flavor using apple pellets.
As for control, the Rec Tec had no problem climbing to and holding a set temperature of 450 degrees in an outside temp of 28 degrees.
If you are on the fence deciding on getting a Rec Tec grill, just get one!

I could not be happier with the rec tec mini or the rec tec customer service. This smoker takes all the tedious thermometer watching out of the equation. I can set and mostly forget versus dealing with my old propane smoker. Customer service is great and even sent a brand new mini after a flare up during its second use (without questioning user error). I'd gladly make this purchase again. It definitely delivers on its promises.

Well worth the money, looking for many many years of grilling enjoyment!

I like everything about this grill/smoker; except for the two holes in the back of the lid; that release the smoke. The holes are opened with no screen for the bugs to enter into your food on the grill. I'm worried when the bug season arrives it's going to be really hard not to keep the bugs from entering those hole, only to land on my food. I DON'T like Bugs in my food.

I can't believe I put it off for so long!
I finally decided to order a Rec Tec grill and from the very first time I used it the taste has been amazing in everything I cook.
There is nothing like putting a big roast on inserting the thermometer and coming back in 4 hrs to a perfectly done delicious roast.
