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.

Steaks and burgers are fantastic on the rec-tec. Now with the sear kit reverse seared steaks are amazing. I also flip them over and use the flat side to sear. I highly recommend this product.
Posted by Blake Dudley on 25th Apr 2017
I used it 3 times already, love it. It's a must have for how I smoke .
Posted by Les Howard on 7th Apr 2017
Does exactly like they say. Great design and good quality. I like how you slide them together, and they lock well together. They don't wooble or rock on the grill either. They heat up very fast and you can use both sides. Just depends on what you're cooking.

Just two words, OH YEAH!!!
Posted by Dave H on 8th Mar 2017
Not really impressed with it
Posted by Roger on 27th Feb 2017
I didn't get it at first thinking I wouldn't need it but after seeing what others were saying about it I decided to get one and I am glad I did.

So what the hell, got a set for the RT680 can't go wrong, THEY WORK GREAT.
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by J Wensloff 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
Posted by Ed Franklin on 16th Jan 2017
I am still experimenting, but so far I couldn't be happier with the Rec Tec.
Posted by Matt 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.
Posted by Kevin Bonwell 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
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Brian Skelly 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
Posted by Richard Frates 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
Posted by Ron E. 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.
Posted by Unknown on 11th Oct 2016
Shipped quickly, packaged well, HD construction, easy to assemble, preforms superbly - would HIGHLY recommend

Have used these several and meat always is seared to perfection. Easy to season
Posted by Henry D. Matthews 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.
Posted by marco 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
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Sheila 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
Posted by Ken Wilson 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
Posted by Donald Anderson on 15th Aug 2016
I never had good luck when cooking steaks till I bought the sear grates. They leave great grill marks and I've had the best steaks I've cooked. The steaks are juice and melt in my mouth!
Posted by Bill Nielsen #Bndigny on 27th Jul 2016
Great if you want that heavy hot searing. Awesome for tuna steaks.
Posted by Josh D on 21st Jul 2016
I bought these because I had a Traeger previously that had issues getting up to temp. I wanted to be able to reverse sear some steaks, and bought these to accomplish that better. First off, being able to get up to 500-550 is awesome, but these get even hotter and give such good marks and flavor. I've even flipped them upside down to use the flat surface to make blackened fish, and they work great for that.
Posted by Ron kohl on 20th Jul 2016
The sear grates are awesome give a great crust on steaks and does potatoes and veggies like no tomorrow
Posted by Benjamin Jones on 18th Jul 2016
In my opinion it's a must have if cooking burgers and steaks on the grill. It has two sides, one that gives you perfect grill marks and the other that will give you a nice crust. I prefer the flat side for searing with a crust.
Posted by Pal-369 on 14th Jul 2016
I am using these in a Pellet Grill and it's not a Rec Tec grill, 5 units fit in perfect and covered the whole surface. I had to trim about an inch from the corners to get it into round grill with the one inch wide edges. Steaks cook perfect every time with a real nice sear to them and that goes for anything that I cook on the grill.
Great product if you like grilling you need to buy this.
Posted by Mike Harris on 5th Jul 2016
Just like they say....works like a grill or a flat top for the crisp. Don't buy a grill without it.
Posted by Ronnie & Katie on 29th Jun 2016
Bought these for the hubby for Father's Day and he not only loves them but so do I! Great for the perfect steak but don't save it for just your steaks as we have found it a great addition for so many of our meals. This is just a wonderful addition to the perfect smoker anyone could ever buy...REC TEC.
Posted by Unknown on 28th Jun 2016
Well I tried these searing grates today on some steaks and corn on the cob. I had my Rec Tec fired up to 500 and they sizzled the moment the steaks hit the grates. Did a quarter turn to give it a crisscross grill marks before flipping. Did the same on the other. These were the best sear marks that I have ever had. The grates were also great on the corn on the cob, caramelizing the sugar in the corn. Now I want to try reverse searing on some steaks.
Posted by David Botticelli El Cajon, Ca. on 25th Jun 2016
If you cook steaks you will appreciate the perfect grill marks from these grill grates!!
Posted by Dana Brown on 24th Jun 2016
The searing grates give the meat that depth in flavor that I was looking for.
Posted by James 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
Posted by Danny. on 16th Jun 2016
If you love to really grill food this is the way to go. I really love it on fish and vegetables.
Posted by Grill Master on 16th Jun 2016
I love my new Rec Tec Pellet Grill and all the accessories I have purchased so far. The grill grates are a nice enhancement to an already superior product!
Posted by Stacy R. Ball 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.
Posted by Anthony Unruh 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....!!
Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2016
This is a "rock star" pellet grill! It is everything that they claim it is and more. It is high quality that delivers with a push of a button and leave it alone. We grill steaks, burgers, roast chicken, smoke brisket and use it to bake pizza. Thank you Rec Tec for engineering a high quality pellet grill so that we can easily cook with wood.
Posted by RajunCajun - Knoxville, Tennessee on 27th May 2016
Does okay on the Rec Tec. Absolutely love the searing marks. Fancy.
Posted by Unknown on 24th May 2016
So good I bought 2 of them.
Posted by SconnieHawk 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!
Posted by Steve on 16th May 2016
Works great, fits rt-680 "like a glove".
Posted by Bill 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.
Posted by Unknown on 10th May 2016
Buy them you won't regret it.
Posted by Unknown 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 Mark Lankston 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
Posted by Bill Rumsey 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!
Posted by John in Riyadh 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.
Posted by Daniel 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.
Posted by Kevin 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"
Posted by Anthony Unruh 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..!!
Posted by Ralph 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
Posted by Ed Moore 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!
Posted by Joel on 9th Mar 2016
like that you can use either side
Posted by Unknown on 9th Mar 2016
Works great so far. Glad I decided to get it.
Posted by G.B in Vermnont on 26th Jan 2016
I have several sets of these and they make the Difference
Posted by @colorthumb 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.
Posted by Mike Riley 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.
Posted by Bob Baxter 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
Posted by Chris Kramer 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.
Posted by Jersey George on 28th Dec 2015
Rec Tec delivered as advertised. High quality materials and performance.
Posted by chris on 25th Dec 2015
Unbelievable steak on the rectec with the searing kit.
Posted by Rodney Quesenberry on 19th Nov 2015
Recommended by the Rec Tec staff and I couldn't be happier with the purchase!
Posted by Judy 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.
Posted by C. Paquette 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.
Posted by Unknown on 12th Oct 2015
After we got it up and running....I love it!
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Dennis 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.
Posted by Chris 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!
Posted by Paul Schneider on 14th Aug 2015
This is the best smoker I have ever bought just set it and walk away it does the rest.
Posted by Ken Whitley 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.
Posted by Bryan 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.
Posted by Tom on 13th Jul 2015
If you want to sear and cook faster - this is just what you need.
Posted by Darren Mears 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.
Posted by Curt G. 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.
Posted by A Gregorio 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.
Posted by Unknown on 29th Jun 2015
Leaves nice marks. It's pro baby!!!!
Posted by Daniel Jaquez 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.
Posted by Unknown 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!
Posted by Unknown on 4th Jun 2015
A must have on a smoker !
Posted by Bill Wyko 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.
Posted by Bill Clark on 21st May 2015
Really does work well and turns smoker into an affective high temperature grill
Posted by Unknown 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!
Posted by Etumos 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.
Posted by jim on 14th May 2015
excellent choice, great cooking experience, easy clean up.
Posted by Ty 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.
Posted by Troy on 6th May 2015
Would recommend these with your order of grill.
Easy to maintain great sear, good tasting food completes the grill
Posted by Les Mueller 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.
Posted by Steve C. Omaha on 13th Apr 2015
Used this for fish, worked perfectly! Steaks this weekend!
These guys are top notch!
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Jesse 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 Mike 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.
Posted by Curtis 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.
Posted by Joe.... on 26th Jan 2015
Great for searing steaks and pork chops!!!
Posted by Tommy Clayton 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 Unknown on 20th Jan 2015
THESE WORK GREAT BEST THING IVE USED
Posted by Michael on 19th Jan 2015
The searing grates work exactly as advertised. I reverse seared some ribeye steaks and has perfect results.
