  1. Hot

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

    Not only looks hot, it also cooks hotter than the others. Seared a prime rib then slow cooked, it was a Christmas hit.

  2. Pure Awesomeness

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2017

    I was on the fence about buying a pellet grill. I have a huge smoker that I built for smoking deer sausage and assorted meats. I was really in the market for a new grill for the house.
    I was doing a lot of research on grills and stumbled onto some videos of the RecTec. I read and watched everything I could find. It seemed to be the best of both worlds, smoking and grilling.
    I ordered the "Kitchen Sink" package. I have also ordered the second shelf, cold smoker, and the cold weather blanket. The first break in period and cook was on a day here in Minnesota that was 14 below zero. The RecTec with the cold weather blanket came right up to 400 degrees and held temp with no problem. I AM IMPRESSED!!! I cooked three pounds of bacon after the break in period. I then cooked hamburgers to have bacon cheeseburgers. Wow was it good!
    I have smoked a couple of briskets, meatloaf, and 15 pounds of chuck roast. I have used the super smoke feature on most of these smokes. All of this in the first month of ownership.
    If you are on the fence, get off and buy! You will not be sorry! It works flawlessly and I absolutely love this grill!

  3. Solid as a Rock!

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2016

    From the time the grill arrived, putting it together and smoking our first turkey, it was exactly what we needed. Instructions were spot on, parts are well made! Great first impression! Had a question that I needed to call the support line and they were quick to get me taken care of. Love the service.

  4. I Can Do This....

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2016

    First meal out of the box was a large beef tenderloin that tried to intimidate me. I followed the recipe from Bob Devon's wood pellet cookbook. I couldn't believe the results. It was like dinning at 5 star restaurant.

    My wife loves the simplicity of pushing the button, putting the food in and checking the temperature for the desired finish.

    We got the "Kitchen Sink Bundle" because we had a placed to store the pellets and the shipping was free. All of the other items are great and are being used. We specially like the searing racks and the cooking mats. The meats and vegetables are awesome when cooking at the same time. The meal comes together hot off the grill at the same time.

  5. My search for excellence

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2016

    I started with a 60" natural gas grill. I was a master with this grill. I was at Costco and the Traeger sales representative talked me into buying a Traeger pellet grill. My reason for taking him up on his offer was because it was Costco, if I don't like it i can return it with no questions asked. My food was much tastier than anything cooked on my gas grill. I sold my gas grill. I am hooked on the pellet grill. The food was tastier but I couldn't MASTER that grill. Cooking times were not consistent and cooking temperature was not consistent. Had problems with it. I took it back and upgraded to the larger one. Kept it for a while, had problems with that one so I took it back and exchanged it for another one. I was on my third Traeger and the flame would go out in the middle of a cook.

    I started looking online to trouble shoot the problem and stumble across the Rec Tec.

    I went to their website, compared the two, read some reviews. I called Rec Tec, spoke to them a couple of times.

    I felt a sense of Excellence so I decided to open an account and bought the Kitchen Sink Bundle. I bought 6 racks of ribs. I cooked 3 racks that first day. Perfection. I cooked 3 racks the next day. Perfection and consistency. I feel like I can master this grill. I took the Traeger back to Costco (I had the last Traeger for 4 years) no questions asked. I really like the Rec Tec better.

    I should have paid closer attention to what comes with the Kitchen Sink Bundle because I thought it came with "EVERYTHING". I thought that the cold smoker was included, I thought the apron was included, I though the extra inside shelf was included. If I would have realized that those things were not included I would have ordered them too because of free shipping.

    I guess I will wait for my Birthday in July to complete my Rec Tec rig.

    If you are serious about which pellet grill to buy, I highly recommend the Rec Tec.

    Buy the Rec Tec now.

  6. Satisfied in Texas

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2016

    I recently ordered and received my Rec-Tec kitchen sink bundle. I was very happy with the careful packaging. it took me about 2 hrs. to assemble by myself. just had someone help me tip it up after putting legs on. It took a few days before I could season it. I did my first cook on it last night. I cooked some chicken thighs and legs. came out very tender. I have not cooked with a pellet grill in a long time. I at one time owned 2 different Traeger grills. The Rec-Tec grill is made so much better than a Traeger. There is no comparison in quality for the buck. I had problems with my second Traeger grill right out of the box. I was cooking some ribs and the grill shut off right in the middle of cook. It took 2 different control packages to finally make it work. The Rec -Tec grill looks very well made and sturdy. I look forward to many more cooks on the grill and know service available for it will be excellent. Thanks Rec-Tec.

  7. A no brainer

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

    Ordered the kitchen sink version. I haven't looked back. Assembly, burn-in, seasoning, and first 17 hour smoke were flawless. Rec Tec Grills has made me a hero. The only way Rec Tec will get this grill back is if they pry it from my cold, dead, smokey hands.

  8. Awesome product

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2016

    It was delivered a day earlier then expected which made me happy. I've used it twice so far and love it.

  9. Rec Tec...There is no substitute!!!!!

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2016

    From the time I received my RecTec 680 ( Kitchen Sink Bundle ), I've been totally impressed. It was delivered to my door and the truck driver, using a dolly, placed it in my back yard. I watched the RecTec YouTube on unpacking and assembling my RT- 680, it was true to form. It went together easily and when I was done, I was again very impressed. I'll have to admit, the Bull Horn Handles definitely catch your eye, as I'm sure they will to your friends and family when you have them over for some great smoked meat cook outs. I've done 5 different cooks on "My" RecTec and each ones has been as good or better then the last. I just love this smoker. I did this years Thanksgiving Dinner, I followed the YouTube RecTec video on smoking a turkey. The turkey looked to great to even carve. It was beautiful. But when I did carve into it, it carved very easily, the juices just flowed, the thigh, drum stick were brown and juicy, the breast skin was crispy and golden brown. When I carved into the breast, you could feel the moist and tenderness of the turkey. The family just loved the dinner. The best to date. The pellet auger worked just as the manual describe, all parts fit accordingly, the Smart Grill Technology Controller ( SGT ), was easy to understand and use. I did read the Owner's Manual and User Guide, so I had the basic information on the workings of the RecTec. The RecTec is a great looking smoker, and I literally can't wait to use it again. You'll enjoy all the RecTec cooking videos as well. I congratulate Ray Carnes and Ron Cundy for developing an absolutely dream smoker to use on all your cooks. Joe

  10. Amazing

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2016

    Have been wanting a pellet smoker for a while now and after a bit of research I found Rec Tec but could not pull the trigger at the time due to other issues.

    Well, I was finally able to place the order a year later and man, it was a long wait but so glad I did. The day after the initial burn in we did a Ribeye, which was OK but two days later I did my first ever Pork Butt. Lets just say, the old charcoal grill is now for looks and the gas grill has since been torn down and placed out on the street corner and one of the neighbors picked it up.

    Great packaging, assembly was a snap and I bought the kitchen sink package and all of the extras it came with were fantastic. Within the next couple of days I will get the cold smoker attachment on order.

    I might never use the stove again. If your in debate, don't be, pull the trigger you will be glad you did.

  11. Wish I had done this one first

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

    I purchased another product first (Louisiana Grills) and after a year-and-a-half of nothing but troubles. I finally got smart and bought the Rec Tec. I wish I'd done this all along and now I have never been happier. Thank you Rec Tec, I love my new RT-680.

  12. This is the only way to grill

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

    After many days of reading reviews, I am very pleased with making Rectec my choice. I was a little nervous about assembly but it was pretty straight forward. So far I have grilled steaks, ribs, tri tip and even a pizza. Easiest grill to use, just set the temperature and use the remote thermometer to get the meat cooked the way you want it. The added accesssories included in the kitchen sink package has been money well spent. The company has been a pleasure to work with and so far I am enjoying and looking forward to grilling.

  13. Great grill

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    I have all kinds of grills, Charcoal, Gas and the Green egg. Thought the Green egg cooked some of the moistest food and controlled heat the best until I got the Rec Tec. The Rec Tec is unbelievable at keeping the heat constant. Set the temp, put the food on, cook by time or slide in the thermometer, open lid when done. Doesn't get any easier for great food with smoke flavor to go along with it.

  14. My first smoker

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2016

    I am one that researches everything before buying. I have hit another home run with buying this RecTec. I went all out and got the Kitchen Sink bundle. Hardest thing was unpacking the 650# boxes that were delivered on a pallet. It went together smoothly. Some of the bolt holes are a bit difficult to access with a wrench on it. I do wish the bolts had hex heads instead of phillips screw heads, but I got it together The legs seemed a bit wobbly when inserted into the tubes that you bolt them into, but it holds up the grill very well. Would have been nice to have the grill legs about 5 inches longer but it is likely due to trying to keep the mass of the grill/pellets from being too top-heavy. 5 starts is a shame. I would rather give it 10! I have smoked on it 3 times, with the last time being a turkey. Mmmm. If you have any doubts, don't worry, I am almost 60, and put this together on my own. My wife did help me stand it upright. What a great product, and I think it will serve me well for years to come!

  15. As good as advertised, maybe even better!

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

    I agonized for quite awhile over which brand of pellet grill to purchase, after many hours of researching I decided on the Rec-Tec and so far couldn't be happier. Received it very quickly, easy to assemble , haven't quite mastered the searing grates, but working on it.
    If I were to offer any criticism in the interest of being completely honest, it would be the "Everything but the kitchen sink package" states, 240# pellet assortment, but it's actually 240# of same "blend". And there was some slight damage to the floor mat, but not too bad . Seems it was used as packing material to protect grill and got a little roughed up during shipping.

  16. Best decision I made !

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2016

    Was a 2 traeger owner. Wanted to upgrade to bigger one. A little bit of Googleing and came across Rec Tec and all the great reviews. That turned my world upside down. Kept going back and forth and although a little skeptical I finally pulled the trigger on the kitchen sink deal. When I recieved it I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning. Un boxed it and as soon as I opened the lid all I could say is WOW ! You can immediately feel the difference and better build quality. After assembling it you can really appreciate the superior quality of all the components. The stainless is thick and this sucker is heavy in a good way. It even comes with a spare fuse and electric heating element. Did the initial burn and it maintained Temps within a degree. Needless to say I sold the traegers and am now anxiously waiting for my RecTec Tec mini and cold smoke box to arrive. Would definitely recommend this grill to everyone. Thank you Rec Tec !

  17. Works perfectly

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2016

    I did a lot or research on the 680. I ordered the kitchen sink bundle and it came out better than i expected! It's built super tough and works flawlessly. This smoker is great for beginners with it's easy to use temperature control. I would recommend this smoker to anyone.

  18. Glad I came across this pellet smoke/grill

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2016

    Wow. I cooked the best rib eye steak that I have ever had in my life on this smoke/grill. This is my first smoker and I am still learning. I think I bought the best product out there to learn on. Excellent craftsmanship and a high quality grill.

  19. Best for the money!!!

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

    Ordered the kitchen sink package on a Thursday and was cooking on it the following Thursday. Just have to say, this is a heavy duty piece of equipment. Neatly packaged, easy to assemble, and will make you the envy of the neighborhood.
    Have cooked brisket, chickens, pork butts, and spatchcocked turkey. Everything has been simple and straight forward. Set her up and let the Rec Tec do the rest. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

  20. Super Smoker

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

    Everything taste better smoked. Well packaged for shipment. Great customer service. Still have a lot to try on the grill.

  21. Top smokers on the market

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2016

    Best purchase I have made came in on time was cooking on it in 2 hours have cooked on it every weekend last three weekends have Done ribbs butts and 1 1/2 thick pork chops all turned out exellant Rev tech is the best tom dean

  22. Rec Tec is the best!!!

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    After doing quite a bit of research, I ordered my Kitchen Sink bundle on Sunday over the Memorial Day weekend. I actually received a call confirming my order and to check if I had any questions the next day, on Memorial Day!

    The grill was delivered the next Friday in Kansas City, very fast delivery. It took me a couple of hours to unpack the grill and put it together, everything went together very easy. After the initial burn in I have cooked on the Rec Tec almost every day since. Brisket, ribs, pork loin, hamburgers, brats.... they have all turned out fantastic!

    Don't waste your time or money with the others out there, the Rec Tec is the best on the market

  23. I bought the kitchen sink with the cold box.

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2016

    The employees are great and very helpful, it is extremely hard to find good customer service after you have already bought there product, but this company is outstanding! The smoker/grill is excellent! It keeps the temperature that you set and works just like it is advertised. Thank you to all the staff at Rec Tec, because it takes a team to be this outstanding.

  24. Just bought the grill

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2016

    First off, I wanted to say that I ordered the “kitchen sink” option last Monday, Memorial Day, and I received the shipment, Friday, before noon (in Omaha, NE)! That was incredibly fast delivery, and I want to greatly commend your ordering system and delivery service.

    Yesterday I used the RT-680 for the first time. A few years ago I started slow-cooking meat with an old-fashioned smoker where I had to load wood chunks and monitor temps using baffles. That meant sitting for hours and hours, paying careful attention to temps. But it was too much time commitment for somebody like me, with a job, wife, and three kids. A few months ago I was in Costco, and a sales rep talked me into buying a Traeger, promising me that “I could set the temp, shut the lid, and let it slow cook the food.” At that time, I wasn’t aware of the advancements in wood-pellet grills available, so I bought it. Unfortunately, since buying the Traeger, it’s been a never-ending battle of wild temp swings and flame outs. Many times I thought, this is harder than old-fashioned smoking—now I’m having to dig out unburned pellets from the fire pot or else watch temps rise 200 degrees hotter than what I had set.

    So I did more research and learned about the PID controller. I did more research after that, and narrowed things down to REC TEC or Green Mountain. I bought the REC TEC (because of great comments that I found on the internet), and yesterday I slow-cooked a beef brisket at 225 for 11 hours to 200 degrees internal temp. It was the first thing I had cooked on the REC TEC (after the initial burn at 400 degrees for an hour).

    The REC TEC held 225 degrees for the entire 11 hours (I bumped it up to 250 for the final 30 minutes to get it from 199 to 200 degrees). The brisket turned out like it was made in heaven!

    You’ve got a great product, a great company, and, all I can say is that everybody who wants to slow cook meat should have a REC TEC, because it works perfectly and exactly as advertised.

  25. My 1st pellet grill

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2016

    I purchased the Kitchen Sink bundle just before memorial day 2016. it arrived the following weekend on Friday. it took me about 2 hours to assemble the pit. I am from Texas so when I bought this grill I was skeptical at best. I love to smoke any thing on my conventional pit, but being able to tend it was getting to be a chore. ( I'm not as young as I used to be) once the assembly was complete which was easy and the instruction were very helpful. I did the burn in time to season it. the next day I put 1 pork loin 1 whole chicken 3 racks of ribs and sausage at the same time. all of which came out fantastic. I used the screaming pig rub on the park and it was amazing. I used the Greek on the chicken and my wife loved it. I have smoked tuna and salmon since then and it was great. you can cook anything on this pit. I know this because I also did a pizza and a very berry bourbon cake. My recipe! I am convinced this is the best purchase I have made in a long time. I have used this pit a total of 48 hours of burn time and still haven't refilled the hopper. very efficient
    If I was going to say anything negative I would say the hardware used to put it together was hard to get out of the package. I would recommend different packaging.

  26. Dinners ready

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2016

    My friends say I am just showing off now. From burgers hotdogs pizza ribs bacon to Boston butts, rec tec had made me a better cook. Love it

  27. Love My RecTec

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    This is the first pellet grill I've owned and completely love it.


    Posted by on 12th Jun 2016

    This really is a quality product. The materials used in construction of the grill are top notch, and the rest of the package is the same. From the hardwood pellets to the rubs and sauces as well as the utensils included in the "KITCHEN SINK" package you'll have everything needed get started. You'll only be limited by your imagination. Easy to assemble and you can't beat the customer support team that stands behind the product they sell.

  29. Why did it take me so long to find this grill?

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2016

    The flavors of the foods I have cooked, have been great. My friends hate me...Thank You!

  30. WOW!!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2016

    I always thought of myself as someone that did a pretty good job of cooking on the grill. After getting going on the REC TEC I know Im good and it does all the work. Thanks REC TEC for making me look like a PRO!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Hands Down Best Grill Ever!!

    Posted by on 18th May 2016

    This is by far the best grill I have ever cooked on! Phenomenal Results!!!

  32. Haven't had any complaints!!!

    Posted by on 17th May 2016

    I love this grill and so does my whole family, I put it together 3 days ago and smoked some ribs on it, they came out perfect, everyone I had over got soo full they fell asleep in my living room and last night I cooked 2 8 lb pork butts, 10 people destroyed that in about an hour saying it was the best pulled pork they'd ever had...I'm very proud of my new smoker.

  33. 1st time owner of a wood pellet grill.

    Posted by on 14th May 2016

    I looked at wood pellet grills for quite a while before I made up my mind. I had leanings towards USA made grills, but they were pricey and I thought the craftsmenship was sub par on a few of them. Then I find RecTec grills on the web and I loved what I saw.
    I ended up purchasing RT-680 kitchen sink package and I haven't been disappointed in the least. When it arrived, assembly was a piece of cake.
    I have been impressed by the quality and workmanship of this grill.
    I waited quite a while before I wrote this review, because I wanted to cook with it to be sure it would perform as specified. Now I can say with confidence that anything I've prepared has come out to perfection. Some of the things I've prepared are Boston butt, baby back ribs, and all kinds of chicken. All coming out delicious and flavorful, with just the right amount smoke flavor. All in all I would recommend this grill to anyone who's in the market for a pellet smoker grill!

  34. Best grill i have ever owened

    Posted by on 13th May 2016

    This grill is the the best. Everything i have cooked on it came out better then ever. Made a rack of ribs on it and it was the best ribs i have made yet.

  35. Best Steak Ever!!!

    Posted by on 9th May 2016

    The first day I had my Rec Tec I grilled some ribeye's. I used the searing kit that was included in the "Kitchen Sink" bundle. By far, not only the best steak I've ever made, but the best I've ever eaten!!! Love my new Rec Tec!!!

  36. Fantastic

    Posted by on 9th May 2016

    Incredible, grilled for 8 adults steaks, hamburgers, brats, potatoes and asparagus. Still had room on the grille. Flavor was fantastic!

  37. Amazing grill and smoker

    Posted by on 7th May 2016

    My Rec Tec works amazingly and does exactly as advertised. I did a whole lot of research and decided to go with the rec tec instead of a treager. I am so glad I did since the rec tec has a 40 pound hopper. I have smoked a brisket for 12 hours without having to be concerned about running out of pellets. I am very happy and satisfied and would highly recommend this grill to anyone considering buying one.

  38. Worth The Wait

    Posted by on 6th May 2016

    I spent several months researching grills to replace my long time gas grill. I wanted something that would not only grill, but smoke as well. The Rec Tec turned out to be the best of all the options. It is very well built for the money, and is easy to use. I am very happy with my decision. The bonus is that the customer service is as advertised! For example, I called early one morning, but since they were not yet open, I did not leave a message. In less than 30 seconds, my phone rang, and it was Rec Tec! I highly recommend this grill!

  39. Great

    Posted by on 6th May 2016

    Posted by on 3rd May 2016

    This grill is amazing! From now on, I will not go out for BBQ. This is the best grill I have ever used. Well worth the investment! Customer service is amazing and the grill is built with real quality materials. A+++ company!

  43. Wow!!

    Skeptical at first but after all the research took the plunge. Looked at this grill almost two years ago and told a buddy to check it out. He purchased last year and had nothing but great things to say, soooo, this year I finally purchase and what an easy grill to use. Still learning how to cook but everything so far has been flawless. (Chicken, burgers and brisket) Will do some ribs this week. Will try the 3-2-1 method. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Never knew smoking could be so easy. Set it and forget it.

  44. Great Choice

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2016

    I looked at a lot of pellet grills/smokers for about 3 months and decided to go with the rec tec. So far a great choice. It was easy to put together and easy to get started cooking. Look forward to years of great food coming from my new rec

  45. Quality and Value

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2016

    Was a Traeger owner for years and struggled with it for a long time. Finally got rid of it and purchased a Rec-Tec. Very happy and the quality is so much better than what we had previously. The value is very apparent and I would suggest and encourage BBQ/Grill lovers to purchase Rec-Tec over other brands. The six year warranty offers peace of mind as well.

  46. Incredible!!!

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2016

    After much research, I decided to believe the reviews and go with a RecTec. I went all in and got the kitchen sink bundle. Wow what a great decision. This grill is so easy to use and does an incredible job making good steaks taste great. It is foolproof to use and consistantly does a great job. it is the best.

  47. Toro! Toro! Brutus is his name!

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2016

    We decided to name our horned beast Brutus. We've done six smokes so far ranging from bacon, chicken, tri tip, and pork ribs. We did bacon twice after the initial chamber seasoning because it cooked so nicely that we're starting a new breakfast tradition.

    We had been pondering a new smoker for quite a while, and had been primarily considering a stick burner. Greg at Ballistic BBQ convinced us to at least look at pellet smokers, and specifically the Rec Tec. After another round of research we started to shift our thinking to the pellet style smokers, and Rec Tec surfaced as one of the best built, best designed, and highest capacity smokers for the money.

    We opted for the Kitchen Sink package, and we're happy we did. First off, it looks awesome! Second, it has all the accessories that you would end up buying separately (or wish you had) over time in addition to a healthy supply of pellets.

    The amount of stainless steel, and the workmanship was a determining factor for us. The ease of start-up, the consistency of temperature, and the super smoke setting confirm that this is a well thought out rig.

    Beware! The neighbors will invite themselves over. Upon starting our first tri tip smoke, a text from our neighbor came in asking if we got a new smoker, and a suggestion of getting together for libations, and a meal. We're on two acres of property so that should give you an idea of how the tasty scent can travel. Brutus better get ready, we know we will be entertaining a lot this Summer!

    Bottom line: We highly reccomend the Rec Tec.


    Posted by on 19th Apr 2016

    I could type my thoughts for hours but I can tell you that it would not do it justice. I researched this product for weeks before buying as well as visited a handful of friends that have other pellet grills from different manufacturers. I could have bought any of them, GMG, Tregger, Yoder but having seen all of these in person I bought the one Pellet Grill that I did not see in person and that's the REC TEC. I can tell you whole heartedly that I made the right choice. Without question, there is nothing Better than a REC TEC.

  49. Smoking made easy.

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2016

    I've never was big into smoking meat because of having to tend the fire and temperature. But this Rec Tec is awesome, just set it and leave it and it does the rest. I highly recommend it. It is worth the money.

  50. Raging Bull Grill

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2016

    This is a great grill that I received the 1st of April and this is only the 12th of April. We have cooked Ribs, Boston Butt Roast, Beer Can Chicken, Cajun Turkey, Pork Steak and New York Strips along with lots of side dishes to compliment them. We have no intention of slowing down on it's use. Just set the temp and set your appetite for the best tasting food you have ever had with no worry about cooking what so ever. Using the Maverick thermometers helps to monitor the temps internal temp of the meat and also the grill temp which is not really necessary due to the accuracy of the Smart Grill PDI Controller. Can't say enough good about the purchase and the customer service which is second to none. Thanks for such a great product.

  51. Excellent

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2016

    Grill is very well made easy to put together. Love cooking on it great smoke flavor and holds temp very well. Would highly recommend.

  52. Game Changer

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2016

    Absolutely love this grill. Everything I have cooked has turned out amazing. First and last smoker I will own. Awesome design, heavy duty and quality materials make the Rec-Tec stand out from the rest. Thanks Rec-Tec - I now have a new hobby.....smoking!!

  53. Rec Tec grill best of best

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2016

    Only have had the grill for a couple weeks ,but have done a bunch of cooks on it.I love it.......made to last, easy to put together,and food results are nothing short of spectacular.Read all the reviews before the purchase,and I can tell you "they are all true"The old saying "you get what you pay for"......this grill is surely a product that fits the saying.Thank you Rec Tec

  54. Exceeded expectations! A+++

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2016

    Coming from a WSM 18.5 smoker, I had high expectations, but there is no comparison to the RecTec. I can't believe the time I wasted getting the WSM going for midnight cooks. This thing is built like a tank and is beyond simple to operate and clean. The grill cooks evenly and food is more flavorful and moist than any of my previous charcoal smokers. I'm beyond impressed and pleased with this purchase.

  55. Great for everything!

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2016

    I was worried at first, but it was the best thing I have bought. Everything I cook on it is great!

  56. Great pellet smoker out of three.

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2016

    This is my third pellet smoker. I started with a Traeger that put good smoke flavor into the meat but the grill would not hold or maintain the correct tempiture. I then moved to a Green mountain grill. It would hold the temp great but did not put the smoke flavor into the meat. The Rec Tec seems to be the best of both worlds. Great smoke flavor and holds the tempiture well. The Rectec is also a larger grill and now I can cook for all our family members for the holidays.

  57. Best Grill I have cooked on

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2016

    We use this grill at least 3 - 5 times a week. The food always turns out great. I used to cook horrible tough briskets. My Rec Tec is making me look like I know what I am doing. Briskets turn out awesome.

  58. so far great

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    Haven't been able to use to any extent, but has been great so far. Great construction and temp holds

  59. Awesome grilling machine!

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    I purchased this grill for my husband after doing tons of research on pellet type grills. The Rec Tec grill has performed way beyond our highest expectations. The ease of use is helpful and we have had nothing but amazing grilling experiences. Also the customer service department has given us stellar service. Five+ stars for us thanks Rec Tec!

  62. Simply Amazin!!!

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2016

    We have never smoked before and with the online support and outstanding customer service our first grilling experience was to feed 28 friends and family. It turned out so awesome leaving us looking like grilling experts, lol. Thanks Rec Tec!!!

  63. Forilla grilla

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2016

    Love my grill. I have been ruining meat my whole life till now. Shame on me.

  64. Easiest smoking ever!

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2016

    Smokes great and I don't have to watch the fire box non stop. Set it and forget it. Makes an old pro out of anyone.

    Customer service above any others out there. Definitely got my money's worth and then some. Everybody should own at least one Rec Tec. Order the "kitchen sink" package, you won't be disappointed.

  65. Better than expected

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2016

    Got the RecTec a couple weeks ago. I was excited to try it out, so I fired it up while it was snowing. I was surprised how quickly it heated up & how well it maintained the desired temperature. The best part was the way the T-bones turned out! I've already recommended the RecTec to several people.

  66. skeptical at first

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2016

    This may be the best girl that money can buy try to put on ribs and brisket at 5 p.m. pull the ribs off at 11:30 let the brisket continue to cook went to bed got up at 7 temperature is still at the same setting continue to let the smokers club 18 hours now best food best brisket best ribs I've ever eaten in my entire life you cannot go wrong with this Grill

  67. The greatest grill

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2016

    Had a trader grill before, and loved it. It was time to get a larger grill, looked at transfer again but the quality just was not there. Starting doing my research, did a lot of web searching, found rectec. The quality and warranty is unmatched. If you are looking for a grill, this is the package. Start cooking with wood!

  68. REC TEC Wood Pellet Grill - Is the Boss

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2016

    I id much research and selected the Rec Tech. I have used it almost daily for over a year to BBQ, Prime Rib, Steaks, Fish, Smoked Trout, Deer Jerky (using 2x 4 stacked racks from sporting good store for a total of 8 smoking racks. Temp stays dialed in. Huge cooking footprint. Very little maintenance. Great customer support. My friends and relatives who previously bought a tr*&^r grill, are all impressed and will all buy a Rec Tec in the future. I even strap the unit to my camper 'carry all' and take it to the lake with us. I see they came out with a portable unit now, so I'll be ordering my new REC TEC travel buddy this week!

  69. Love our Rec Tec

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2016

    Best smoker ever

  70. Great product

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2016

    The Rec Tec pellet smoker is a great product. I am an experienced grill master, and have always wanted to smoke meats, but until now I have always been intimidated at the thought of working endless hours attending to a traditional wood smoker. After doing some internet research I chose the Rec Tec full bundle. I called Rec Tec and talked with Trey who assisted me with placing the order Tuesday evening and Trey assured me that the smoker was in stock and would be delivered within 7 days. That sounded reasonable considering the delivery distance from Georgia to Texas. The smoker was delivered Friday morning just 3-1/2 days from the time it was ordered. Following the instructions the assembly was reasonable straight forward and took about 2 hours to complete working alone. Since then I smoked a pork loin, bacon, hamburgers, baked potatoes, Texas brisket, and steaks (using the searing plates). All has turned out great with little effort. Following some online recipes makes using the Rec Tec easier than any other outdoor cooker I have ever used.

  71. Wow the best

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2016

    We have used this four times now. It is so easy to use. Just push the button. The rubs and stuff that came with the grill are fantastic. The grill is the best and I and my wife love it. The videos the owners put on line are true and I am glad I bought this . It is worth every dine spent on it.

  72. One Word... AWESOME!

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2016

    These guys build a solid & quality smoker. The assembly video will save you a bunch of time. Their customer service is the best I have ever encountered... Hands Down!
    Without a doubt I highly recommend this smoker and this company. You won't be disappointed!

  73. Better than advertised.

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2016

    I have had the RECTEC for a little over a week now, Have done a tri tip roast, split chicken breasts, and a pork loin chop. Very happy with the results. Shipped quickly and arrived in great shape. Assembly was easy and took about 2 hours. Looking forward to much more good cooking as I learn more about the grill.

  74. awesome

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2016

    love this !! Has all the bells and whistles Fast shipping makes grilling and smoking so easy and tasty

  75. Love this grill!

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2016

    The assembly was easy, the grill is sturdy and the meat we have grilled on it so far has been outstanding. The price was higher than wanted to spend, but worth it!!! All the extras with this package were high quality!

  76. I Got Wood

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2016

    I dove deep into the underworld of the internet researching pellet grills. The Rec Tec name came up again and again. Then it came up again. After two months of pre-buyer's remorse I went with the Kitchen Sink option. Granted, my first two cars together were less money, but IMO it was priced way too cheap. About 15 minutes after I ordered I got a call from the customer service explaining the shipping process. The grill came LTL and I picked it up at the local yard three days after I ordered. Incredibly heavy. Incredibly well built. Assembly instructions were spot on accurate. Burn in and seasoning complete the next day. No issues. Quick to temp and holds it perfectly. First cook was ribs. Perfect. Pork butt, perfect. Brisket, completely dry and nasty and my dog wouldn't eat it. That's on me.

    Buy it and don't look back. Top notch customer service.

  77. What hasn't been said already?

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2016

    I first learned of Rec Tec 2 years ago as I started to get into smoking and unwisely chose an Electric unit. As I got more and more into it and wanted more rack space the choice became clear, I just had to have a Rec Tec! From Setup > First cook I have nothing but good things to say, the meat (Pork shoulder) turned out beautifully and it couldn't have been more simple to achieve the desired results.

    The only complaint I've found is the reported temp on the control unit and the Maverick disagree while cooking (Approx. 20 degrees), when the smoker is empty they are within 2 degrees of each other.

    Overall this has been a great purchase and I can't wait to do more cooking with it!!!!

  78. OMG, THE BEST EVER.....

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2016

    WOW, I just got this grill a week ago and I couldn't be MORE pleased. My wife said she wished I loved her as much as this grill, HA HA, I love you honey. I've cooked 2 pork butts, 3 slabs of ribs and some chicken breast so far, 2 different methods on the butts and the 3,2,1 method on the ribs. WOW I was happy happy. I really took the time to document the time the grill arrived on the truck and the complete assembly. I have many pictures and videos. I've posted many videos on my Facebook page and my friends and family keep asking when I'm going to open up my new restaurant. I'll post more on YouTube real soon. I hate to admit it but I have to go out of town this week and I'm kind of upset I can't stay home and use my grill. If you're looking for a grill STOP looking, this is it period, STOP, buy this baby, you won't be disappointed. I could see myself buying another one just to say I have 2 of them. LOVE LOVE LOVE my Rec Tec.

  79. BEST.smoker.EVER!

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2016

    After conducting a ton of research on the various options for smokers, the obvious choice for quality and ease of use was the REC TEC! We have not been disappointed! Our first attempt (we have never smoked before) was an 11# brisket and tonight we smoked ribs. Both were the BEST meals of both cuts we have ever experienced! The REC TEC is very simple to assemble and use (great video online too). We have found the temperature regulation to be superior and extremely efficient for fuel, requiring no babysitting! Both times we were grilling in approximately 40-degree ambient outdoor temperature. A tip we had read suggested using a welding blanket to help insulate against cold weather to improve temperature regulation. Works like a charm! There was significant damage in shipment to the barrel on the first delivery, but a brief call to customer service (Thanks, Ben!) and the problem was resolved with a redelivery! We could not be happier with our purchase and the outstanding customer service and responsiveness of REC TEC!

  80. The best bang for your buck.

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2016

    My wife surprised me with the kitchen sink bundle this past Christmas. I must say that this is the best smoker that I've ever used. It's very well made and very user friendly. I will definitely recommend Rec Tec grills to everybody I know.

  81. What more can I say.....

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2016

    I really can't add much to the rather detailed reviews already on the site. I've waited several months to write so I can evaluate after the thrill of purchase dissipates. I relied on those other reviews and can say that I am not the least bit disappointed. So far the unit has worked flawlessly. It was well packed for shipping and other than the front bolts being to short for the extra tray, all went together easily and well without any help. (I did cut myself installing the shelf due to the sheetmetal not being properly finished although it hasn't been a problem after installation so be careful.) I was surprised to find an extra igniter and fuse in the packaging-good move guys. The cooking has been really great and the temp. control is spot on no matter the weather. I've even cooked bread and it cooks similar to a brick oven, I suspect due to the even temp. distribution. The construction is heavy gage and others have remarked to that effect. The pellets supplied are very mild in nature so they must be augmented with a separate smoking device like the one supplied in the kitchen sink package if one wants to get the richer smoke such as we are used to in Arizona where mesquite is used so much. Still the smoke ring is really impressive and has been spotted by my guests. Part of the reason for purchasing this unit was to develop additional food that my wife could enjoy on her restricted diabetes diet, and I must say it has really helped her. She has even remarked that if it hadn't been for these new meals she would have had difficulty staying on her diet that has now really helped her lose weight and keep her "numbers" in line. Also one should remember that this is an oven in its own right so you can use this to cook other things than meat and thus choose to keep heat out of the house in the summertime and save on the A/C bill. It would be hard to come up with suggestions for improvements as the unit is so well thought out and executed, but I did think of one minor improvement that could be added-a covered hole that would allow one to insert the thermometer probes without squeezing them with the lid. Minor I know. Otherwise, I say you can't go wrong with this unit---so cook on buddy!

  82. grill of all grills

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

    Great, clean, even , delicious cooking! We smoked a turkey, bacon, baby back ribs, and a porky roast in the first week & all were cooked to perfection! Meat was soo juicy & tender! One recommendation in to include a few recipes with the kitchen sink!

  83. Just opened the box

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

    I spent the last 7-8 years with a competitor and decided it was time for a change. I ordered a Rec Tec and out of the box I knew it was different. The quality it top notch! Assembly was relatively easy (it would have been simpler with two people but I was too anxious to wait for anyone else to get home!). Planning to break it in tonight and get cooking after that. I will update or write a second review once I have cooked with it, I was just so impressed with the craftsmanship that I couldn't help writing this one.


    Posted by on 26th Dec 2015

    I have used my grill 3 times in 3 weeks. Grill works GREAT. Quality is outstanding. The thing that is the most impressive is that once the grill gets to the temp. setting it stays at that temp. There is no change unless you open the lid. Cooked ribs and they were perfect. Cooked a ham for Christmas and it was Great ( not over smoked) . I cooked a brisket, and it had a perfect smoke rig. I highly recommend this grill.

  85. Kitchen sink the way to go!

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2015

    All arrived on one pallet. Everything I needed to start grilling. Really glad I purchased this package instead of buying the grill and then picking things up as I go along. My wife and I love the flavor. I am not hesitant to recommend this grill.

  86. A very excellent product, without a doubt

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2015

    I'm a convert of many year from the old gas/wood chip smoker. I got the Rec Tec "kitchen sink bundle. Wow, I can't say enough good things about the bundled package. All the accessories are wonderful and such quality. The packaging of the shipment was excellent. The assembly of the pellet grill was easy. The written instructions we very understandable. The quality of the entire grill is absolutely superior to many of Rec Tec's competitors. I searched, compared and questioned many grill masters before setting my sites on Rec Tec. After the initial burn in, I was disappointed in loosing the pretty red shine on the lid, but with one quick polishing with my Turtle Ice it restored it's beautiful sheen. It has maintained the shine after several successful cookouts. The searing grates were important to me, after using them I am so pleased with them. I look forward to smoking our Christmas prime rib on our Rec Tec. I'll no doubt purchase the smaller grill for my recreational property. Thank Rec Tec.......

  87. Way better than my Traeger Little Tex Ellite

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2015

    Grill is made with all of the correct materials and temp controll is unbelievable. Shipping to Alabama was done within two days of placing order.

  88. awesome!

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2015

    First, the grill arrived in excellent condition. They truly have an expert in designing the packaging to ensure the grill arrives without a scrape. They use a ton of cardboard and styrofoam. I've only used the grill three times so far but if tested smoking large and small meats as well as grilling hamburgers. Everything turned out great. I'm looking forward to using it a bunch more. Pulled pork will be next.

  89. Love my Rec Rec!!!!

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2015

    Ordered the " kitchen sink bundle" and that's what I got. Everything but the kitchen sink, sauces, rubs, custom grill cover, frog mats...........!! Assembly was easy, burn in about an hour and I've been in heaven with this grill/smoker ever since. Just fill it with cooking pellets, turn on the power, set it to your temp and sit back and relax. I made thick cut bone in Pork Chops right off the bat and they came out moist and delicious, unlike when I would make them on my old grill. The indirect heat makes me look like I know what I'm actually doing. Did ribs next, which came out spectacular!!!(2-1-1 method). Also, thank you Rec Tec for the BBQ sauce also. I'm up north in Wisconsin and have only had ketchup based sauce, and really good stuff at that. Then I tried your vinegar based Rec Tec gourmet BBQ sauce and was blown away!!! Absolutely love your sauce, and grill/smoker and so far everything else about Rec Tec!!! World class customer service doesn't hurt either. Keep up the great work guys!! Highly recommended!!!!

  90. The Love Affair that my wife knows about! (-:

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2015

    I love my new Rec Tec. Easy to assemble and it looks amazing. Even if you are not on the professional circuit you will look the part. I smoked a ham and turkey on Thanksgiving Day at the same time, and I have also used the sear grates to do some Halibut, beautiful markings. I have found my new love affair, and the best part is my wife purchased her for me. If you're on the fence and thinking about a Rec Tec smoker, go for it, you will not be sorry!

    Negative - My rec Tec showed up with a scuff from things rubbing together from shipping, so I need to call customer service, and I sure that they will send me some touch up paint to cover the scratch on the top of the smoker, but that is not a show stopper for me.

  91. New to cooking.

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2015

    Iv'e been looking at the pellet fired grills for over a year. I did get to look at several of the brands that are sold in local stores but price vs. quality was pretty sad. So online I went to search out the best bang for the buck. There were just so few negative comments about the Rec Tec it was almost not believable. So I started looking on independent sites and still just very few bad things to say about the Rec Tec. It came well packaged, everything arrived in great shape. Assembly was a snap and instructions were good enough. It is heavy built, sturdy just really well built. Well I have had it for about 3 weeks and have cooked a pork butt, a spatch cocked turkey, beans, mushrooms, pork loin and a ham. All were amazing and super easy. The Pork butt was on for 14 hrs and I never touched the temp setting or added pellets. Too easy. Thanks for a great product.

  92. awesome

    Best grill I ever used been grilling for 30 years


    Posted by on 30th Nov 2015

    One of my great loves in this world is grilling and smoking. I live in Southern California so I can and do grill year round. I am a firm believer that wood should be the only source of fuel used. I own 3 Big Green Egg Kamado grills which I love but they can be a bit temperamental and I constantly have to tweak vents here and there to keep temps steady. This can get frustrating especially over the course of long cooks. I recently went to a friend’s house who was using another brand of pellet grill and I really enjoyed the food which peaked my interest. So, I searched and searched. I did a ton of research on what the best option was. I kept coming to REC TEC grills. They are by far the best constructed pellet grills on the market and their customer service is second to none. So I made the jump about a month ago. My RT-680 showed up about a week later and I quickly assembled it which was a breeze (I’ve read some reviews saying people had trouble…not sure why). I was up and running in about two hours. I did the recommended burn in and I was off. So far I’ve done two pork butts, one 15lb brisket and two Thanksgiving turkey’s (17lb and 20lb at the same time). Everything came out PERFECT. The grill heats to temp quickly and remains rock solid so heat management is completely removed as a concern. I cooked my last pork butt at 225 for 19 hours and didn’t even use half a hoppers worth of pellets. I’ve also used it to cook up a set of Juicy Lucy burgers which my 80 year old father in law said was “the best burger he’s ever had”. Ray and Ron are truly passionate about grilling and their trade. This wonderful smoker is a result of that passion. Check out their YouTube videos that even a veteran like me continues to learn from. Bottom line; if you are looking for an incredibly well constructed smoker backed by the world’s best customer service at an incredible bargain, then look no further. Their interest free financing offer should you need it should remove any hesitation you may have.

  94. Grill and cover

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2015

    I bought the grill about a year ago, had an assembly issue which was quickly resolved to my satisfaction. A week later I received a hand written letter from one of the founders of the company thanking me for working with them to correct the problem. He also sent along a box of goodies. ( I am not easily impressed, but this did impress me) In the last year I have used nearly 1000 LBS of pellets and could not be more pleased with my RECTEC.. I use it year round in weather from zero and snowing (Yes, I am a dedicated BBQ chef) to nearly 100 degrees., The original cover wore out so I replaced it with their new custom fit cover, just got it a few days before Thanksgiving, I expect that it will last well, it seems to be well built. (did a 20 lb turkey when it was 20 degrees outside this year)
    I am a professional salesperson and would be proud to sell a product of this quality.

  95. Even better than advertised.

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2015

    Just not enough superlatives to describe this package. Setup is definitely a two person operation. Solo it took almost three hours with lots of expletives necessary. So far, every cook has been a hit. Tube smoker resulted in super smoked cheddar. Low temp provided excellent lightly smoked chicken thighs. Mid temp resulted in near perfect bacon wrapped meatloaf. Smoking two turkey breasts tomorrow after an overnight brine. Shipping was just ok with two punctured pellet bags; however, minimal loss of pellets resulted. Overall, I wish I hadn't procrastinated so long before opting for the full kitchen sink option.

  96. A great pellet grill with amazing temperature control.

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2015

    I have used the grill a few times and the temperature control is truly amazing. To say that it will hold the temperature to plus or minus 5 F is not an exaggeration. I was also impressed with the relatively low pellet consumption to maintain temperature set point. I used the extreme smoke setting a couple times and it works flawlessly. This was a wise investment.


    Posted by on 5th Nov 2015


  98. So Far, So Good

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2015

    I bought the Rec Tec after a lot of on line research based on the superlative reviews from almost everyone, and particularly the comments on the superior customer service. So far I have not been disappointed. My grill arrived without any damage. The mat was back ordered and arrived within days.
    The assembly was straight forward. You cannot help but be impressed with the quality of all components. Beefy materials, quality fits, great finish work. The only start up issue I had was mistakingly thinking the auger was not turning when in fact it was but at an almost imperceptible speed. I called Rec Tec for advice and the tech took me through a diagnostic procedure to assure all was OK.
    We have only tried two recipes so far: thick pork chops and a chicken. Both turned out with excellent flavor and very juicy.

  99. Amazing results every time.

    Read a lot of online reviews for this grill before pulling the trigger. I was somewhat skeptical due to the lack of negative reviews. But went ahead and so far I have found that I cannot mess up what I cook on the grill. Chicken, Ribs, steak, bacon, all wonderful every time.

    Very efficient with the fuel pellets. After multiple cooks for several hours have used a surprisingly low amount of fuel.

    Only complaint I have isn't rec tecs fault as there was a bit of minor damage in shipping that I didn't find till after the delivery driver was long gone. One can of high temp paint and 3 min of prep to get every thing prefect.

    Very happy with the product

  100. Outstanding in every way

    After a year or more of reading reviews and studying between Yoder, Traeger, and Rec-Tec, I made the decision to go with the Rec-Tec. I can tell you now that I know I made the right purchase. There are a lot of good grills out there on the market, but I feel Rec-Tec just about has it all. The prices are extremely fair, the huge hopper comes in handy, and the customer service is top notch. The list goes on and on. I wish I had made this investment years ago! In the 3 weeks I have owned this smoker, I have cooked Boston butts, pork tenderloin, burgers, sausages, steaks, and ribs. The temps stay right where I set it. Low and slow cooking leaves the most beautiful smoke ring I've ever seen. Once you reverse sear a steak like they show in the YouTube videos you will never grill a steak any other way. Go ahead and go with the kitchen sink bundle, you will NOT be disappointed, trust me it's worth every penny!!
