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

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.

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.

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 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 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!

Works great, fits rt-680 "like a glove".
Posted by Unknown on 10th May 2016
Buy them you won't regret it.
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 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 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 8th 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 23rd 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.
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Ron on 31st Dec 2014
works great its awsome
Posted by Corey 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!
Posted by Unknown on 17th Dec 2014
Having a great time cooking meats on the sear grates. Consistent cooking!
Posted by Tim Smith on 26th Nov 2014
Bought 2 Sets....Don't Use Grates Anymore....Racks Are Awesome.....
Posted by Bill on 22nd Nov 2014
Tried these out on some nice thick pork chops. Got great sear marks and they tasted awesome.
Posted by Carlos Bustamante 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!!!
Posted by James Barney Cable on 31st Oct 2014
Works do good and so easy
Posted by James Barney Cable on 22nd Oct 2014
Works great and do nice to be able to go from smoking to grilling
Posted by Unknown on 8th Oct 2014
Works exactly as described. Great product
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Sep 2014
This works great. Used it on steaks and was very happy with the sear marks
Posted by El Heffe 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!
Posted by Unknown 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
Posted by Aladino Gregorio 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 Rick 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.
Posted by Marc 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.
Posted by Kurt 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.
Posted by Les Wyant 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.
Posted by Eddie on 28th Jul 2014
Rec Tech is a totally Awesome Grill for everything including Steaks now with the sear plates---perfect for the reverse sear method, The plates complete the grill.
Posted by Unknown on 20th Jul 2014
I have only used my Rec Tec twice so far, but I am impressed . I tested temp all over grill surface and only got a couple of degrees difference. I have it at my beach house in Flagler and plan on having some really big cookouts/ parties in the future.
Posted by Ron G on 14th Jul 2014
To my surprise this item performs as advertised. Cooking time for high temperature items, steaks, burgers, etc., are reduced by about 20% and it seems to provide a true "sear", so the meat is juicier.
Posted by lance buchanan on 11th Jul 2014
Great for steaks
Posted by Eric (Detroit, MI) on 6th Jul 2014
I did a lot of research on pellet grills and almost bought one at Costco due to it being rather inexpensive. But I am glad I didn't and love my new Rec Tec. The grill is made very well and appears to include stainless hardware, which is AWESOME! The grill works really well and love using it for smoking meats, cooking pizza, etc. I had a couple small issues that I talked to a couple people back at Rec Tec on, and they were great to deal with. They went out of their way to help me. I would highly recommend this grill to anyone.
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jul 2014
Smoked our first garlic infused, sweet maple rubbed tenderloin on the Rec Tec using the grates. If you don't do this, you are missing out. Period!!
Posted by Smiley Rodriguez on 1st Jul 2014
These grills are awesome for my RecTec smoker. Being from South Texas beef fajitas are on everyones grilling menus. I had never tried to cook them on my RecTec before until I tried the searing kit. It worked great! Had lots of compliments on these beef fajitas.
Posted by Duane Roland in Springfield, Mo. on 24th Jun 2014
When used at higher Temps, it leaves perfect charred sear marks on meats, veggies, etc. The set will cover half the cooking area.
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Jun 2014
I was going to wait for my husband to come home from deployment before I put it together and I just couldn't wait. BOY am I glad I didn't wait. its unbelievable how much the food tastes. its amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The grates are a most have. Steaks are so good and juicy.
Posted by Mike Small on 23rd Jun 2014
The REC TEC is both a great grill and a great smoker but add these grill greats and you have up'd your game. We do steak night with our friends every Friday, and the grill grates left great sear marks on everyone's steak. Easy to install, season, clean, and use. They also include a great spatula that word great for cooking and cleaning. Good job!
Posted by Roger on 5th Jun 2014
I was very skeptical about these Grill Grates and thought they were kind of expensive, but man are they made well, and they really do get hotter than the grates that are in the grill, you can hear the meat sizzle when it hits these Grill Grates, and they really do leave nice deep and brown sear marks, I Love these things, very good product, and very well made.
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jun 2014
Sears the food perfectly. Have already used for burgers and fish, both were good and the grate tool made flipping the fish extra easy.
Posted by Donna Frazier on 28th May 2014
The perfect accesory for grilling steaks! We made some Rockin Porterhouse Steaks! This item makes using our very highend gas grill obsolete! Perfectly seared meat, juicy and flavorful! May have to buy another set to cover the entire grill for when company is over!
Posted by David S. Albuquerque, NM on 13th May 2014
What a great idea. I have been smokin for over 30 years Started with Barrel to OK Joe's to Traeger now Rec Tec (each was an improvement on the prior) and have kept a gas grill on the side for steaks and such. That gas grill hit the clasifieds and is now gone. Thanks for turning me on to these grates. Great compliment to an outstanding product.
Posted by Unknown on 13th May 2014
Make sure the grill is hot and these grates will give your food the perfect checked pattern. I used these with the drip pan still in and they produced outstanding results!
Posted by Gwendolyn on 7th May 2014
I wasn't sure if these plates would be necessary or if they would be more of a pain when they first came. Now I can't imagine cooking steaks on anything else.I received these along with the grill to review for MadameDeals.com. You can read my full review here -- http://madamedeals.com/rec-tec-grills-review/
Posted by Unknown on 7th May 2014
lock in the flavor
Posted by Tim Smith on 6th May 2014
I am not necessarily worried about sear marks on the food for appearance, the Rec Tec grill keeps the moisture in everything.
What I like the grates for especially is to help with items that easily fall apart like fish. Cook with the skin side down first, then flip using the provided spatuala. The spatula fits between the grates and allows you to keep everything together.
Your items will be so moist, and the appearance of sear grates doesn't hurt.
Posted by Jeff Colotti on 4th May 2014
I just received my second set so i can fill the whole grill. They are very well built and add the searing marks perfectly and when you get them out of the box and inspect the spatula if it doesn't putt a smile on your face your in the wrong business. Thanks again Rec Tec for filling up the world!
Posted by William Peterson on 22nd Apr 2014
Although the stainless grills which came with my RecTec are outstanding, I would recommend to anyone the addition of the GrillGrate accessory kit. Easy to use, clean and move as necessary, the anodized aluminum grates are a joy to cook with, especially if you, like me, love to see those iconic grill marks on a juicy steak.
Posted by C Pepper on 19th Apr 2014
Leaves perfect sear marks on burgers and steaks, well worth the money
Posted by Troy on 16th Apr 2014
But serious grill marks on your beef/pork steaks is a MUST to lock flavor in! These fit the grill/smoker perfectly, and are heavy-duty!
Posted by Dave E. Douglass TX on 14th Apr 2014
The grates are awesome. They do exactly what they are supposed to do and they do it well. Used them the first week I had the grill and I was very pleased.
