Product Description

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

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

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

Kit Includes:

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

  1. Sear grates

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2017

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

  2. Great product

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2017

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

  3. Great Grill

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2017

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

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

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2017

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

  5. Love this pellet smoker

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2016

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

  6. Awesome grill

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2016

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

  7. Great for Salmon and Steaks

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2016

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

  8. Love my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2016

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

  9. Resturaunt quality grill marks

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

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

  10. Very Happy

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

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

  12. Sears meat well

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

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

  13. Amazing Grill Grates

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2016

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

  14. will never cook burgers any other way

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2016

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

  15. Just like dad would have done it!

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

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

  16. Sensational, smoky & sexy

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

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

  17. Must have for burgers

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2016

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

  18. Much needed addition!

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2016

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

  19. Best purchase ever.

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

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

  20. Searing kit

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

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

  21. Grill Grates work GREAT !!!

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

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

  22. Best Searing Grates

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2016

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

  23. Very Pleased

    Posted by on 27th May 2016

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

  24. Awesome

    Posted by on 24th May 2016

    So good I bought 2 of them.

  25. Absolutely Necessary and Work Great!

    Posted by on 16th May 2016

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

  26. Grill Grates

    Posted by on 16th May 2016

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

  27. Works great

    Posted by on 10th May 2016

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

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

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

  28. A must have for Steak

    Posted by on 10th May 2016

    Buy them you won't regret it.

  29. Great Product

    Posted by on 9th May 2016

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

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


    Posted by on 13th Apr 2016

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

  31. Works Great!

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2016

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

  32. Excellent Tool for the RecTEc

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2016

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

  33. Grill Grates work Great!

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2016

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

  34. great for searing or just cooking on

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2016

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

  35. nice grills

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2016

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

  36. Work Great

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2016

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

  37. Great addition for your grill

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2016

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

  38. great grates

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

    like that you can use either side

  39. Searing kit

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

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

  40. Does the job

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    I have several sets of these and they make the Difference

  41. another great accessory for the Rectec

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2016

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

  42. Not to bad

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2016

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

  43. works awesome

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2016

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

  44. Great for Searing Meats - Steaks

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

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

  45. Quality!

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2015

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

  46. great steak

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2015

    Unbelievable steak on the rectec with the searing kit.

  47. excellent

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2015

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

  48. Built With Quality Materials

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2015

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

  49. Great Product

    Posted by on 14th Oct 2015

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

  50. I love this grill AWESOME

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2015

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

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

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2015

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

  52. Gets those Marks on

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2015

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

  53. Great searing kit

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2015

    I've only used the searing grates three times now and so far so good. They leave nice sear marks above 400. Wish they were a little wider to fill the space of the grate. I thought they were a little tricky/ messy to clean. Overall a nice product!

  54. 5 Star Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2015

    This is the best smoker I have ever bought just set it and walk away it does the rest.

  55. great searing on steaks

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2015

    By using the searing kit for the grill, my steaks had the beautiful grill marks and were perfectly done. They looked like they had come from the nicest restaurant.

  56. Dont waste your time with a Traeger

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2015

    I did plenty of research before purchasing any model from any company. I am so happy with my choice as well as the family. They love the results and its so easy my 6 year old has become the pit master! Now i can spend more time in the kitchen trying to perfect the details vs my time stressing over the pit.

  57. This is what every pellet grille needs

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2015

    If you want to sear and cook faster - this is just what you need.

  58. Great addition to a great smoker!

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2015

    I too was skeptical about these plates. I got three beautiful ribeyes from the market. I removed the one side of my wire grates and put these grilling plates in, put the temperature to 500. I let it sit at 500 for about 10 minutes then threw on the steaks. Five minutes on each side, turning 90 degrees halfway through on each side for the grill marks. I was very pleased with the results. I have twice since, done burgers on the plates on one side and corn on the cob on the regular grates on the left. Very pleased, well worth it. I'm going to get rid of my old gas grill now.

  59. Great Searing and cooking tool for steaks!

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2015

    These grates do a great job of cooking my steaks. I wrap the steaks with a slice of bacon secured with a toothpick. I cook them for 20 minutes. (5 minutes each side flipping to get the X marks on the steaks.) The steaks are about an inch thick. I take them off and let them rest about 5 minutes then they melt in my mouth. The steaks taste like I was in a high class restaurant but at 1/4 of the price.

  60. Awesome Accessory ":~)

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2015

    I had to put two sets in after seeing how they worked, now whatever I grill has great looking seared marks. You can still use the non stick sheets for your fish and veggies right on top.

  61. works as promised

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2015

    Leaves nice marks. It's pro baby!!!!

  62. Can you say grill marks!

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2015

    Does what they are advertised to do.

    I would have given 5 stars if they fit the space of the grill gates that is removed for use. Should have had 4 panels. vice 3.

  63. Searing kit

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2015

    These are awesome! Work better than expected. I've used them about 4 times since I got them and they perform just as expected. You can tell the quality of them when you open the package, just like the grill! Easy to clean. The large fork / spatula that came with it is a tool I've been looking for too! I thought it was a little steep in price, but you get what you pay for, and I got QUALITY!

  64. works great

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2015

    A must have on a smoker !

  65. Simply the best

    Posted by on 28th May 2015

    stainless grates do well but don't transfer heat very well, cast is a PITA. But these are engineered to cook. These are probably the only grill grates that were actually designed to do what they do. They transfer heat to make great grill marks, they radiate heat for an even cook & they're easy to clean. Simply put, the only grill grate engineered to cook on.

  66. Must have for grillin

    Posted by on 21st May 2015

    Really does work well and turns smoker into an affective high temperature grill

  67. Awesome!!

    Posted by on 20th May 2015

    I was a little concerned as to how the grill grates were going to put sear marks on my steaks or chicken but they made me a believer. No flareups and great markings. Great product!

  68. The Accessory That I never Knew I Needed

    Posted by on 19th May 2015

    I have had a pellet style grill for several years and had all but written off decently seared steaks. I could not have been more wrong. These things are amazing. My only regret is that I did not discover them sooner.

  69. great cooking

    Posted by on 14th May 2015

    excellent choice, great cooking experience, easy clean up.

  70. Searing Station is a must!!!!

    Posted by on 9th May 2015

    I recently purchased my Rec Tec Grill and purchased the searing grates with my grill. It is a must when cooking steaks and hamburgers. Seeing the well defined searing marks are just the bonus. It is sad to say, my family will no longer eat out, good for us but bad for the local restaurant businesses.

  71. awsome!!!

    Posted by on 6th May 2015

    Would recommend these with your order of grill.
    Easy to maintain great sear, good tasting food completes the grill

  72. Love those grill grates

    Posted by on 24th Apr 2015

    Wow, used these for the first time last week and the steak was picture perfect and the taste was outstanding. I am now officially spoiled. Will never settle for steak cooked any other way.

  73. Simple clean and just works

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    Used this for fish, worked perfectly! Steaks this weekend!

    These guys are top notch!

  74. really completes the Rec Tec

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2015

    These are amazing for high temp grilling. I get great sear marks and the food is juicier than if I just cook on the regular grates. These have totally transformed the Rec Tec.

  75. Now there is nothing I can't do on my Rec Tec!!!

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2015

    Now my rib eyes are truly the best around! I've always thought my grill needed more heat to get that good sear texture. Now I have it! My Rec Tec.


    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2015

    Have used these doing lamb burgers and rib steaks. They work great. Love the way they leave the searing marks and the flavor you get.

  77. Love the Lines in my steaks, hamburgers

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2015

    I am really happy that I decided to get them. Really works well for things you normally do on a gas grill.

  78. Rec Tec searing kit

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2015

    Great for searing steaks and pork chops!!!

  79. Love the grate

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2015

    I am still seasoning the grates. Have tried them twice and they work great. Love the spatula that goes with it too.


    Posted by on 20th Jan 2015


  81. Heavy Duty

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2015

    The searing grates work exactly as advertised. I reverse seared some ribeye steaks and has perfect results.

  82. Grill grates are Great

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2015

    Purchased 3 grates with my Rec Tec then I came back and got 3 more,to,completely cover my Rec Tec. These are great great for getting a nice crunchy crust or just to get some nice browning on my meat.they work like a charm easy to clean and are very hevy duty.

    I liked them so well I also got some for my Weber gas grill and they really make a difference for heat. They are the finishing touch to make my Rec Tec a complete smoker and grill very nice product no one should be without them.

  83. Searing Kit

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015

    The searing kit works well. It puts nice sear marks on the meat when properly heated, and the lighter juices get trapped between the rails to help keep the meat nice and juicy. For best results, get the searing panels as hot as possible (450-500 degrees) before placing the meat on them.

  84. works great

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2014

    works great its awsome

  85. A must have accessory

    Posted by on 19th Dec 2014

    These grates do an excellent job of searing and cook evenly across the entire surface. The flipping tool that comes with it is also and ingenious idea. Great product!

  86. Best sear grate!

    Posted by on 17th Dec 2014

    Having a great time cooking meats on the sear grates. Consistent cooking!

  87. searing racks

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2014

    Bought 2 Sets....Don't Use Grates Anymore....Racks Are Awesome.....

  88. Work Awesome

    Posted by on 22nd Nov 2014

    Tried these out on some nice thick pork chops. Got great sear marks and they tasted awesome.

  89. Fantastic!!

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2014

    I hardly recommend this awesome Rec Tec grill.
    for months I did research on pellet smokers until I get across RT website. Immediately I love this great looking grill. I ordered as soon as I had the money. when the grill arrived to my home I open the box and I liked even more. I have been cooked: Ribs, whole chicken, pulled pork, chicken wings, New york steaks, T-bone steak, carne azada, smoke fish, smoke salmon, Tuna, cookies, brownies, cakes, and more.
    This is a versatile grill I can cook low and slow smoke food and fast and high temperature as high as 500* Fahrenheit.
    Great, great, great customer service. I live in San Diego county, 3 hours of time difference and they answer their cell phones!!!!!
    You can be wrong!! I will never regret!!!

    Works great and do nice to be able to go from smoking to grilling

  92. Awesome

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2014

    Works exactly as described. Great product

  93. Works great

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2014

    This works great. Used it on steaks and was very happy with the sear marks

  94. Wow

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2014

    I've been cooking with pellet grills for years....and just recently decided to upgrade my smaller grill to the rec-tec. I have experience with the other grills, and really missed the ability to sear so I was surprised to see the sear grates as an option. I was skeptical like the others, but MAN do they work. Highly recommend them!

  95. must have

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2014

    perfect addition to a great grill must have throw a steak or a burger
    comes out perfect have not used my Webber since I started using my REC-TEC

  96. Grill Marks for sure!!

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2014

    Well it makes great grill marks and does exactly as advertized. Customized cut to size, fits like a charm, I may even purchase another set and eliminate the grates completely!


    Posted by on 13th Aug 2014

    This kits works great. Heat up well and leave excellent grill marks and I think they speed up cooking too. I love them and the meat I cook so much that I haven't even tried cooking on the REC TEC grates.

  98. Superb quality and value

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2014

    Extruded aluminum with laser-cut holes, heavy profiles, and excellent finish. Very well crafted, and accompanied by a lovely fork/spatula.

  99. GrillGrates

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2014

    Ok, gave these grill grates a 4 versus a 5 because I am still experimenting with them. I have used them for chicken, burgers, steaks, and quesadilas and they do sizzle and leaves some pretty marks on the food. But.... I was expecting them to help impart the flavor of a charoal/gas grill sear, which they really don't.
    The fit and finish of the product is spot on. Will keep doing some more testing and see if I can come to love these as much as I do the Rec Tec.

  100. Quick and flavorfull all in one

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2014

    I love the searing kit because it makes you into a barbeque and smoke king al at once. So far I am kind of playing it by ear, but the worst I have done is overcook hamburgers, and they were still delicious.
    Rec Tec may need to come up with a whole new set of cooking times and recipes if many people start using the searing kits instead of the stainless steel grates. In fact I think they should be a standard accessory.
