  1. i wish

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    I wish I would of bought one sooner. Me and my wife spend quality time cooking on the 680. Thanks Rec-tec


  2. Best Father's Day gift ever!

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2017

    My wife insisted on buying me the bundled package deal with all the bells and whistles, including helpful accessories that i would probably not have purchased separately but am now thrilled to have. It was well worth the cost. The smoker is remarkably handsome, especially the bold red color and polished stainless steel bull horn handles. But the real test was in the cooking. It replaced a Traeger smoker with only 3 temperature settings. After watching a few RecTec online videos, I made world class ribs and brisket the first time I used it, with nice quarter inch pink smoke rings. The temperature control mechanism makes all the difference in ensuring a perfect outcome. It can also double as a grill, thanks to the searing grates, so there was no need to replace my 20 year old Genesis grill. Assembly was straightforward and took about 1 1/2 hours. Customer service was great when I fired it up for the first time and called for help. The representative stayed on the phone with me to diagnose the error message that I had failed to connect the thermocouple.



  3. Best Grill I Have Ever Owned

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2017

    Comes with everything you could possibly need to be successful. Great customer service. Loyal customer fan base. Happy to be part of the Rec Tec family!


  4. best quality grill i have ever had

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    Finally at the age of 55 i have found a grill that has everything i have rigged to make mmy old grills cook the way i wanted.them to. This grill makes a long smoke easy to manage with such great temperature control and the grill grates lets you grill a steak on the same pit.


  5. Outstanding product

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    First smoker I can call my own. Have used friend's smokers in the past but took the plunge. Did a lot of research and chose the REC TEC. So far it is the best decision I could have made regarding a smoker.

    My first brisket was scrutinized by a guy who smokes meets competitively and he gave my brisket a 4.8 out of 5. Smoked some short ribs and they were cooked to perfection.

    The customer service provided by REC TEC is beyond exemplary

    I couldn't be happier with my decision.


  6. YAY

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    We love our grill and all of the goodies!! I purchased this for my husbands Father's Day gift ordering it early so that on his special day he would have a pretty good idea how to use it. He has gone to town with it and loves all of the sauces and rubs!!! Wonderful product that the entire family benefits from .... Including our four legged friends!!!!
    I feel this grill will sustain our harsh Wyoming weather and is worth every penny.


  7. Legendary Grill

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    If I could give this grill 100 stars I would. I have used it nearly every day since I got it. It is mind blowingly good. It's so EASY and the food turns out just like a professionals EVERY time. On top of that it looks awesome and RecTec has the best customer service I've ever encountered. By far one of the best purchases I've ever made!


  8. REC REC is the best.

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    I ordered the kitchen sink and it arrived without any problems. Upon assembly I noticed that the lid had a flaw in the finish, I called customer service and they took care of it right away. My first big smoke was a 12 lbs. Corned beef that turned out to be fantastic.


  9. long time griller first time smoker

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    Lets just start with simply amazing. Went together without a hitch. My wife and I were at a friends who had another smoker brand and the food was really good, so we thought we would start investigating. I have been a charcoal guy for 30 years. (mainly out not knowing there was something better) My friends and family always came over for bbq.
    Now, I have had the 680 for a week, we are getting compliments from neighbors saying some of the best ribs and brisket they ever have had. I just told them it isn't me, it's the REC TEC. Your videos and online communities are fun, informative and friendly. Thank You Rec Tec. As I started with: Simply Amazing


  10. Rec Tec costumer service showed before I even received the product.

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2017

    I ordered the Rec Tec wood pellet grill 680 – Kitchen Bundle which by the way included shipping. I was happy from the beginning with the total cost. Eager to receive the grill and to get started, I tracked the shipment from the start. It was shipped across the US. The shipment started it journey in a short time after ordering and made it to my home state very fast. Then it was transferred to a local transit company for delivery, there everything stopped. I waited a couple of days for delivery but nothing happened. I contacted Rec Tec and the grill showed up later that day. I was contacted by a member of the Rec Tec team to make shore everything was fine. I appreciated the quick help they provided.
    I assembled the grill in one afternoon and grilled my first meal for the family the next day. I’ve grilled several meals so far and my family enjoyed them all. Looking forward to a long summer of grilling on my Rec Tec. This is going to be a summer to remember.


  11. Finally,..grilling can be relaxing!

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    I always thought I liked grilling, but dreaded cooking certain meats (chicken was the worst) because I always got flare ups and ended up with crispy, dried out expensive meals, that the whole family crunched on, just to make me feel good.
    Now I can actually sit in the lawn chair with an adult beverage and have a leisure conversation while producing juicy, soft precise cooked meals that everyone truly raves about.
    No THIS is ultimate grilling!!


  12. Best grill/smoker

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    Probably the best grill/smoker I've owned. Supper easy to run just a simple push of a button. Assembly was a breeze with the instructions they provided. My first cook with it was bacon to season it up the I did some ribeyes that turned out amazing. Can't wait to get the cold smoke box think that will also work a a warming chamber. Maintenance on the grill is easy takes less then 5 minutes as long as you foil up your drip pan. If your looking for a new grill give Rectec grills a try you won't be disappointed.


  13. Definitely exceeds expectations

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Agonized over this for months and I have to say this was one of the best purchases I have ever made. Have used for 2 whole day cookouts with ribs, tri-tip, pork loin, chicken, various veggies and going big next weekend with Boston Butt and will probably do pizza too! Can't say enough. I got the "kitchen sink" package and would definitely recommend biting the bullet and going with the whole enchilada deal. The maverick temperature control works wonders and ensured that I did not overcook anything, extra shelf was a must as I filled the inside of this to the max. Everything was so juicy and tender and the smoke flavor was great - even the chicken came out so juicy and tender and the grill grates work wonderfully. Ribs and tri-tip were better than Lucilles and everybody at the party was blown away, definitely a pellet man forever!!!!!!


  14. Great product

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Assembly was easy. This is a great smoker. Just set it and forget it. No more feeding coals or watching the temp. Put tinfoil on the drip pan and cleanup is a breeze.


  15. Happy Rec Tec Owner

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2017

    Just received my RT680 and I must say this is the best purchase I have made in a long time. I have made burgers, pizza, & pork shoulders so far.

    The simplicity of the grill/smoker is unreal. I no longer have to babysit my smoker to assure temps remain steadfast.

    My shoulder cook was a 10 hour cook and the only problem I had was trying not to sneak peaks . The pulled pork turned out great!

    Also the customer service is beyond good.. I have spoken and emailed customer service 4-5 times and the curteousy the Rec Tec Team surpasses all others.


  16. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    We've owned our Rec Tec for about 3 weeks now. Started with burgers the first night and have cooked on it every night since then. I've done 10 pounds of chicken wings 4 times. Everyone said they were the best they ever had. We've done 10 pounds of ribs twice. Simply amazing. We've done bacon, a turkey, steak, chicken breasts and pork chops. Soaked corn with a little olive oil and salt is great! I did shrimp wrapped in bacon. Best I ever made! In fact, I had a few shrimp left over and just threw them on with nothing on them. They were awesome! I can't wait to do jerky and cheese in the cold smoker. I will review that when I do. And as far as the grill itself. I love it so much I built it it's own "house". It looks even better in person. It's like the center piece of my backyard now. The craftsmanship is incredible. So well made. I am so glad I didn't buy a Traegar. We did our homework and got the best. Make sure you get the "whole kitchen sink". Definitely worth it. And last but not least, the guys from Rec Tec are awesome! Support is second to none.


  17. Best grill ever

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    Got the kitchen sink, and I can say enough on how much We love this from burgers to pizza so far. Doing a pork butt this weekend


  18. most fun

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    I was so skeptical about buying and spending this kind of money for a smoker , however. , it's the best money I ever spent !!!! The ability to set the heat and leave it alone for hours is the best thing ever !!! I've cooked chicken , pork, beef , and you really can't mess up ! Put a prime rib on in the morning and 8 hours later you are eating it , it's changed supper at my house ! My wife love the fact I do the cooking now and I couldn't be more proud of my creations ......... the longer you wait the more regret you will have for not getting one quicker !!!!

  20. You won't regret this purchase

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2017

    I love this grill! It's really as easy as everyone says, set it, forget it, enjoy amazing food. I'm no BBQ expert, but I can cook like one now. I've done bacon, ribs, and brisket so far and it's all been fantastic. The kitchen sink comes with great seasonings, all the accessories you'll ever need, along with a ton of pellets to keep you grilling for weeks. If you're on the fence, get off and buy it!


  21. Fantastic product

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2017

    I own three smokers and a gas grill this grill tops them all. It is everything I expected and more. I have had it for a couple of weeks and have had better food than I have ever gotten off my other grills. I am going to be getting rid of some of my old grills. Thanks for the best grill I have ever used.


  22. Best Grill Ever

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2017

    I currently own an smoker, propane grill and charcoal grill. I really wanted a "do all" grill. I've been looking at new smokers, grills and pellet grills for almost a year. After much research I pulled the trigger on a Rec Tec 680. I've owned it for a few weeks and I should've bought it a year ago. I've cooked two briskets, a whole chicken and burgers. I am like the neighborhood expert now and trust me I'm not. I just like to cook and I want it simple. The Rec Tec does that, set the temperature and leave it. It is a very well built grill, with easy assembly instructions (I actually watched the Rec Tec video). I got the "kitchen sink" package, it was outstanding! I loved everything that came with it. I am very enthusiastic to cook now, I'm constantly thinking of what to cook next. The recipes and videos that Rec Tec have are informative and easy to follow. Above all else, their customer service is the best I've seen in a long time. After my initial order I get a phone call from the GM telling me what to expect with shipping, not an email, text..a phone call. If you are on the fence with a Rec Tec, dive in, its the best investment you will make for outdoor cooking. I highly recommend the Rec Tec grill.


  23. top notch smoker

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2017

    I had a Traeger for 5 years and got tired of all the problems so I bought this smoker after doing a lot of research and this grill by far exceeds my expectations!!!!! Did my first brisket on it and the final product was spot on I will never own another smoker again. Everything I have put on this has come out beyond amazing. Thanks Rec Tec!!


  24. OMG Why didn't I get this a long time ago!!

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2017

    Got my Kitchen Sink Bundle last week, put it together with a little help and started smoking! This is soooo well built and easy to use. Did wings the first night (after my bacon) and 3 racks of ribs for memorial day. They were all gone in a few minutes, people said they were the best ribs they've ever had. I think the kitchen stove is going to gather some cobwebs because I have a Rec Tec!!


  25. The BEST!

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2017

    Easy peezy is the best way to explain the cooking method with the grill/smoker. Produced some of the best ribs and kabobs that I've ever cooked. Quality is second to none regarding construction. I really enjoyed the items that came with the kitchen sink bundle.


  26. Reliable and easy to use.

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    So far have already cooked more than 100hrs in cooking in less than a month of purchase. Everything works as advertised, the temperature deviation is no more than 1 degree. The amount of smoke is just right. Getting good smoke flavor and smoke rings with minimum supervision. Has become the defacto cooking setup.


  27. Best smoker/grill I've ever owned

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    We have had a few rainy days here in the Marietta, GA area so haven't been able to use the RT680 as much as I wanted. Still managed, however, to have done about 10 cooks. First cook was day of assembly which was, of course, bacon! (For seasoning purposes only, of course...) Second cook was three whole chickens using the non beer can recipe on the Rec Tec website - highly recommended. Since that time we have done pork chops, pork loin, bone-in ribeye, etc. Every single cook has been good to great and, as I continue to learn the grill, I know it will only get better. Have some pork belly curing right now hoping to use the cold smoker this weekend! So far, the RT680 is everything it is supposed to be!! And, if you can, go for the Kitchen Sink bundle... The only issue I had was that when I received my "bundle" the grill cover had not been upgraded to handle the cold smoker. One simple email and the new cover was shipped the next day along with a pre-paid label for return of the incorrect cover.
    Customer Service - REALLY nice to experience that again!
    I cannot fathom how anyone can go wrong with Rec Tec!


  28. Greatest grill ever!

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I had a hard time justifying spending this much for a grill. I was using 2 Weber grills and looking to buy a gas grill and a smoker. I do a lot of grilling so I wanted something nice. I saw a infomercial for a pellet grill. I became curios and looked into it. I figured a pellet grill could replace all 3 cookers I wanted. I did a lot of research and came across the Rec Tec. Took about 3 weeks to pull the trigger and I can't believe how amazing this grill is. I bought the kitchen sink package and man is it worth it. If you are looking and wondering is it worth it, the answer is YES. Buy, buy, buy that's my advice!


  29. First meal out of the box made some of the best ribs I have ever eaten!

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    PROS: RT-680 is a well designed and made BBQ. I am looking forward to cooking many meals on it going forward. It is so convenient to just turn it on, wait a couple of minutes then throw your meat on. The temperature controller takes a lot of the worry out and you do not need to constantly keep the fuel source supplied. The smoky flavor was just right without having to use the extra smoky feature. Great Job!

    CONS: Not many as the product and service are great. It does take a fair amount of time to assemble the unit but it is worth the wait and time. The grill is pretty low off the ground. I would need to get on one knee or sit in a chair to grab the towel in the towel ring. This was due to the desire to keep the center of gravity low (i.e. safety). These are minor things compared to the PROS mentioned above. Maybe REC TEC will make a leg extension kit for tall people. Let me know if you ever fabricate a set ;o).


  30. Beat Grill/smoker out there

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    I've always wanted a decent smoker but never knew which one was the best to buy. I did some research and have a few buddies that own the "other" brands out there and they even told me to check out the Rec Tec !! After my cousin bought one and raved about, I had to pull the trigger and get my own. Everything I've made on this so far has been the best I've ever grilled!! I've always had difficulty making BBQ'd Ribs, but made 6 racks this past weekend and was the hit of the party. If you want the Cadillac of pellet smokers I highly recommend looking into the RecTec, well worth every penny!!


  31. Great Product Looks Awsome

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    Cooked pork shoulder and Chicken it came out great. Looking forward to cook prime rib roast and ribs for a neighborhood get together will have a great time.

    Thanks for a great product.


  32. Love this grill

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    We love our new grill. We are still learning how to cook on it but everything we have done so far has been great. This package is great. You get a lot of stuff for the money and the seasonings & BBQ sauce are large not a little sample of the products,


  33. great grill

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    my son and I cooked beer can chicken, filet mignon and brisket the first three days I owned your grill. Everyone was restaurant quality! Outstanding grill!


  34. wow

    Posted by on 28th May 2017

    To the Rec Tec family, I recently purchased the 680, and Wow, I was not disappointed, it was everything that you said it would be and easy to use,from chicken bombs to tri tips to a 24lb turkey. Maybe I am using it to much but I just love it, you guys are on to something and have a great product keep it up. Thank you Rick


  35. Amazing Tank of a Smoker/Grill

    Posted by on 26th May 2017

    Excellent built Smoker. Temp control is precise and consistent. Cooking space is vast and everything is easy to access, clean and get back to smoking and grilling. I've cooked Brisket, Ribs, smoked avocados and made a smoked blackberry cobbler. That's just the first couple weekends. This is the best outdoor cooking machine I've ever owned.


  36. RT 680

    Posted by on 25th May 2017

    I Love this grill, I work midnights and can put something on when I get home in the morning by the time I get up its time to eat! the temp control takes care of everything. Love it. thanks REC TEC.!!!


  37. The Ultimate Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 24th May 2017

    I had a minor problem with the blower motor sticking. I called Rec-Tec and they identified the problem immediately. It was just some debris causing the motor to drag. after a few starts it's OK and the grill is working perfectly. I've done Boston butts, steaks, and sausages so far and all have turned out perfectly!! It is just start the grill, set the temperature and wait for the food to be done. I'd buy it again !!


  38. This grill is a awesome

    Posted by on 24th May 2017

    I've had this grill for almost a month and haven't used my oven or stove since. The wife and I are continuously thinking of new things that we can cook on the grill. Everything that we cook on there it's just been awesome no other word can describes it.


  39. Fantastic

    Posted by on 24th May 2017

    This Rec Tec Grill is assume and does not disappoint.


  40. Best smoker for the price around.

    Posted by on 22nd May 2017

    I am happy to be a member of the Rec Tec family! Best investment I have ever made. It is so much fun cooking on this thing! I hate to take a day off! Everything is as advertised. I have never seen this smoker more than 1 degree off. Kitchen bundle is the way to go. All extras I have used. And I love them all! Thank you Rec Tec.


  41. The best Pellet grill on the market

    Posted by on 21st May 2017

    Worth Every Penny!


  42. Great Product!

    Posted by on 17th May 2017

    My Rec Tec showed up on time and in great shape. I've already cooked pork ribs, pork loin, beer-can chicken, KC Ribeyes, bacon, and wings. All of them turned out fantastic. Quality product and great customer service!


  43. This grill Rocks

    Posted by on 16th May 2017

    I have been a pellet head for a few years now. Owned a Memphis pro built in prior to this. Was concerned the quality of this grill may disappoint me. Quite the contrary. I have been impressed with the quality, design and overall performance of my rec tec.

    From contacting them with questions prior to ordering and all the way though the ordering process right up to the delivery was smooth and clear. Communication and information exchange was exemplary.

    To start with, assembly overall is straight forward and relatively simple. my only complaint about that process is the bolts that hold the legs in are a little short and took a bit of patience and creativity to install with the lock washers and such. Now that I think about it, that is my only complaint. I could see this grill was very well thought out and designed.

    Now the best part...actually cooking with it. From long, low and slow cooks to just cooking burgers this grill is spot on. The controller does a great job at regulating the temperature. It produces beautiful smoke rings and flavor. The fan is a bit noisy, but nothing that is annoying. The sear plates really provide an extra level of versatility. I absolutely love the 40 lb hopper capacity. From the little things such as a light inside the grill to the quality of the handles, this grill is solid.

    If you are in the market for wood pellet grill, I highly suggest moving this grill to the top of your list.

    Great job REC TEC!


  44. Worth Every Penny

    Posted by on 15th May 2017

    I've had my rt-680 for about two weeks now. So far I've done burgers, ribs, chicken and this weekend three Boston Butts. All I can tell you is that it performs as advertised and is worth every penny. I was surprised by the weight of each part. Even the light cover is heavy glass. If you're on the fence, take the leap you won't be sorry.


  45. Top Notch

    Posted by on 13th May 2017

    Although this is my first pellet grill, I've been around them for years. I've owned gas and charcoal and won't complain about those methods, as I've had some amazing food that's come off of both. But I must say that the Rec Tec has been amazing and a lot of fun. The quality is outstanding!! From the way it is packaged, speed of delivery, the way it is delivered, the support from the Rec Tec Team, all the way through to the amazing food I have produced. I love the fact that they constantly update their video page for new ideas and instructions. How much easier does it get? Seriously...prepare your food, press a button on the TecTec, adjust the temp, put the food on and you are done! The grill was easy to put together and the quality is unsurpassed. I can't say enough. Cheers. Happy Grilling


  46. Best out there!!!!

    I was nervous about spending that much on a pellet grill, but once it arrived it was worth every penny and more.


  47. Superior Product

    Posted by on 12th May 2017

    Totally satisfied with the product and customer support.


  48. I COULDN'T -NOT- GET IT!

    Posted by on 11th May 2017

    A co-worker and I spent a couple of weeks looking at several smokers, and were leaning to Green Mountain or Traeger. In our searches, we kept stumbling across this unknown brand (RecTec) with glowing written reviews, YouTube videos, etc. Eventually, we were trying to find a reason NOT to buy this unknown (to us) grill. I finally pulled the trigger after giving up on finding anything negative. The accolades are numerous and non-stop.

    RecTec's customer service is not a myth. I assembled my grill in the garage due to rain. While moving it to the back patio, I somehow lost the spare fuse out of it's plastic bag. Saturday night, I sent an email to RecTec asking what fuse I needed to buy to have a spare on hand. SUNDAY morning, I had an email with a shipping order. Three hours later... another email showing 'items shipped'. Two days later... 3 fuses arrived in the mail at no charge. Who would do this? RecTec!

    I called twice with questions about adjusting the auger speed and getting the 'extreme smoke' working correctly. (I could've read the directions, but that's SOOO un-manly. Right??) I was walked through both in less than 2 minutes. You want smoke? Extreme smoke is a crazy good feature. I cooked a brisket and two baby back ribs. One word: WOW! I cooked 6 hours at 225 degrees and only once caught the temp at 226 for a half a second. The rest of the time it was spot-on at 225. (Anyone want to buy my Egg?)

    It's so refreshing to find and do business with a company that TRULY believes in putting the customer first, even AFTER they have your money. Equally good is the beyond-excellent materials, craftsmanship and state-of-the art components that make up this grill. On a scale of 1-5, I'll give RecTec 6 stars across the board.

    'It just don't get no better'n this.'
    Thank you RecTec. You are appreciated!


  49. Love it!

    Posted by on 11th May 2017

    Received promptly. Lid had paint overruns and customer service promptly sent out a new one. Been burning pellets and livin' large...brisket (packer cut), two pork butts, three turkey breasts, two salmon, beef jerky, spiral cut ham and six corned beef (gotta have my Sunday mornin' hash, stash :). Looks like a week-end forecast for ribs and mebbe some beer-butt chicken. Some people get super-sized, some get down-sized...I've been "pellet-ized". La vida Buena!


  50. Love this grill

    Posted by on 10th May 2017

    Very easy to set up. works great. have had for about 3 weeks now and have cooked on it 5 or 6 times already.


  51. awesome grill

    Posted by on 9th May 2017

    This is a just a great grill. A bunch of my buddies got pellet grills and so I was on the market for one. Did some shopping around and decided to go with the rec tec


  52. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 9th May 2017

    I had been researching pellet grills for about a year and was tentative, because I wasn't sure about grilling things like hamburgers and hotdogs. I found Rec Tec, read a lot of the reviews, watched utube videos and pulled the trigger on my own. Since I got it, I cook on it at least 2-3 times a week. Absolutely love it!!


  53. best pellet grill on the market

    Posted by on 7th May 2017

    I first ordered the mini grill it worked so well but I didn't have enough room. so I ordered the big grill and its even better the little one. best food I have ever tasted. this grill is the easiest grill I have ever used just set it and forget it. the best part is I have forgotten food on this grill and I still didn't burn and no flair up ever


  54. awsome grill

    Posted by on 6th May 2017

    First bought the mini loved it. Lost it due to a house fire, could not wait to get in another house so I could get another grill replaced it with the 680 love this one too. I have cooked ribs porkbutt, chicken can not wait to do a brisket tomorrow


  55. As easy as they say!!

    Posted by on 6th May 2017

    I've sat back watched and compared RecTec for almost a year and finally realized it was the best choice. Took advantage of the kitchen sink bundle and I must admit all the accessories are great!!
    This grill holds temps so spot on all throughout the longest cook times. It's a must have in my opinion for bacyard enthusiasts.
    I did have a slight issue with fan sticking during initial burn in but one quick call got me right to a knowledgeable staff member who had me running full steam ahead within minutes!!


  56. Just do it already!

    Posted by on 5th May 2017

    I would say I knew absolutely nothing about a pellet grill before roughly 4 months ago. I did a massive amount of research before I decided on the the Rec Tec RT-680 Kitchen Sink bundle, with the Cold Smoker attachment. I'm so glad I bought this one. It is built like a Sherman tank, I've done just about every rrecipe that a skilled BBQ master would do, mind you I've just started in the pellet grill world. I can say every thing I've grilled / smoked has been amazing. A little tweaking and I'll be a pit master ( at least to all of my
    friends ) I / my wife had extremelconcernes about the price, but as soon as we started using it , wow. We are going to order one for our son for his birthday. If your on the fence, take the leap, you won't regret it ...


  57. Sweet anointing !

    Posted by on 4th May 2017

    Just received my grill three weeks ago. I have cooked ribs, chicken, pork butt and this weekend my first brisket. I am new to all of this but so far I love it!


  58. the best grill and smoker

    Posted by on 3rd May 2017

    I have used the grill 4 times now and love the way the food turns out. I've cooked steaks, 3 racks of ribs, and a beer can chicken and a smoked chicken . I used to have a propane smoker and I liked it but was a lot of work constantly adding wood chips plus always had to keep an eye on the temp. This grill / smoker makes smoking and grilling pleasurable. Can't wait to try smoking salmon and some pork belly in the cold smoker box


  59. Amazing smoker

    Posted by on 3rd May 2017

    This is my first experience in smoking anything on my own. I have to say it's easier than I expected. The help I've received from the RecTec crew has been amazing. Everything I've attempted so far has come out amazing. My biggest concern is trying to figure out what pellets I like the best.


  60. Perfect

    Posted by on 3rd May 2017

    I was hesitant to spend the money, but glad that I did. The Rec Tec system is perfect and easy to use. This package gives you everything you need to get right into it. If your just starting out or have been in the game for a while this is the best package to get.


  61. Lovin our Rec Tec

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    We love our Rec Tec so far! everything is just as advertised.


  62. Well Built Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 1st May 2017

    Bought this grill a few days ago and love it. It is well built and built to last! Cooked a brisket last night and it was great. Highly recommend this grill for anyone who loves to cook and eat smoked foods. Worth every penny!!!!! Go Tech!!!


  63. Super Design/Quality

    Posted by on 1st May 2017

    This wood pellet grill is so simple to operate and works extremely well. Versatile too, with temps low enough to smoke fish and high enough to grill steaks. Mainly I wanted to take the effort out of maintaining the grill temperature for long cooking times, like periods over 2 hours and the Rec Tec is ideal for that. The thermostat is trustworthy and the hopper holds enough fuel to cook forever. Plus, it is so solidly build I can tell it will continue to work this way for the indefinite future. Finally, great support on YouTube -- makes the assembly, break in and first attempts at cooking a breeze.


  64. great product for the price

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2017

    Best grill on the market great customer service can't go wrong with this grill


  65. off to a good start

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2017

    Easy to assemble, easy to start, and my WIFE was the first to grill ribs low and slow while I was out golfing for the day. Nice surprise waiting for me when I got home


  66. No Joke

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2017

    This bad boy is just what the Dr ordered. You can't go wrong with this grill. The grill does all the work.


  67. So far it is the best. Just got it put together.

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    I will review after the first grilling


  68. Amazing!!

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    I bought a Traeger a year ago and wasn't happy with it, so started looking at other smokers. I looked and researched every single one, compared them all in a spreadsheet. My husband couldn't understand why I needed a new one, but he doesn't really need to understand why, it's a Texan thing, gotta smoke the meats. I bought the big one with the kitchen sink. The smoker is stable (the other one blew over), holds a lot of pellets (always running out), smoke cycle is amazing, lots of grill space, push start and set the temperature. I opted for the Kitchen Sink and the accessories with that make smoking so much easier, everything you need and all the things you want. Comparing the new Traeger with the Rectec, the cost to get everything I got with the Rectec, the Traeger was still more expensive. My only complaint, small one, is there isn't a hopper cleanout on the Rectec to change pellets easier. Oh, and the cover is tight getting on and off, but it isn't blowing off, so that is a good thing. The rubs are really good, the cooking mats make cleanup easier, the thermometer is sweet and so are the probes. Accurate temperatures. All in all, it was a great investment and use it every weekend. He's not complaining so much now ;)


  69. Buy one

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    Hands down best money I've ever spent on a grill/smoker worth every penny!!


  70. awesome

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2017

    Awesome built grill not only do I love it my family loves it as well teaching my kids the basic to making BBQ and everyone in my subdivision loves it


  71. Just Getting Started

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2017

    Well, I waited a few weeks after receiving my grill before posting this review. Didn't make sense to just grill some delicious hamburgers and then post a review. So now we've done those burgers, 3-2-1 ribs, stuffed pork loin, smoked meatloaf and chicken wings and I couldn't be more amazed by this grill. From the super quick shipping, to the secure packaging of the product, to the easy assembly, all the way to seasoning and making the magic happen. You know it just doesn't get any better than this. Looking forward to years of great cooking on this grill. Want my endorsement, you got it. Better get yourself one!


  72. best investment for 2017, fast delivery, helpful in ordering the upper rack was left off the order made the call had it in two days

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2017

    Fast delivery 7 or 8 days helpful in ordering the upper shelf was left off I made the call had it in two days
    The performance of the grill has been outstanding once it has found its new home it is truly a plug and play
    I have logged 60 hours so far and cooking today I feel bad for the neighborhood cause they are down wind


  73. 5 Star Smoket. It does not get better than this.

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2017

    Very impressed on how the product is packaged. Very impressed on the product quality.
    Very impressed on the products functionality.
    Very impressed all products style.
    I may never buy a gas grill again.
    With the ability to grill and smoker this Smoket is great for people who are new to smoking food or advanced smokers. There are plenty of great recipes on the Internet using this smoker. I have tried several of them and they are amazing.


  74. Very surprised

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2017

    This is my first pellet grill and I am very surprised by it. I have friends who have more expensive name brand grills. They are all jealous now. I ordered the cold smoker option also, and after a few hours the cheese is awesome. Only complaint I have is that with the "kitchen sink bundle" you get the folding shelf. Once installed you lose access to the cool bullnose ring "towel holder". So I relocated it to a better/ more useful spot. On the front centered edge of the shelf. I have tried to attach a pic but it keeps getting blocked.


  75. constructive criticism very happy

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2017

    I like it. If you're selling a product to man you probably want to do a DVD or have a link on your website on how to put the grill together. Nobody I know Reed's instructions. You got to get on the Wi-Fi bandwagon and create an app to control the temperature. Grill temperature and meat temperature to probes. You probably need to work on your delivery method but call me.

    Very happy though my business partner ordered one got the same thing.


  76. Get the whole sink package

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2017

    We ordered this three weeks ago. I went back and forth in between the easy of gas or the flavor of charcoal but I believe i found the best of both worlds with wood pellets. Before I pulled the trigger I called to ask a few questions. In two rings a gentlemen located in Georgia picked up. Talk about a feel good moment. He was helpful and made me feel like my business was wanted but he was not pushy at all. I placed my order. With in two hours a received a call, again from Georgia, confirming my ordered and letting me know that i had a few bucks coming back to me. I received two more calls one to say it was ready to go, and one to say it shipped. UPS called when it got into town to set up a date to delivery it to the home. Assembly was easy and we were smoking ribs in no time. So far we have made pull pork and ribs twice, as well as, got a good sear on some porter house steaks, with the sear kit. I feel like a pit master and my family have been extremely impressed. This is worth every single penny!!!! Get the whole package and add in the extra shelves for large parties and you'll be ready to go. We are going to try briskets this week, and then a whole chicken after. I also got the cold smoke box but i haven't used it yet.


  77. this grill is amazing

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2017

    I was in the market for a new grill and wanted to get a pellet grill for better flavor and did some research and came across the Rec etc. I called to ask a few questions I had and they answered all my questions. I ordered the grill on a thursday evening and I had it by the following Wednesday. Makes some delicious food. Would recommend this grill to anyone.


  78. You won't be dissappointed

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2017

    Great customer service along with a superior product.


  79. Smokin like a Champ

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2017

    Awesome experience, you can actually take time to make sides because you are not married to Temperature control, RecTec keeps the temp within a couple degrees if not right on your target temp. I got the Kitchen sink bundle and it was worth every penny. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to grill or Smoke.


  80. i Love It! Best Grill!

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2017

    I have absolutely no complaints.
    The order process was easy, shipping arrangements were precise and on schedule. Putting grill together was easily done be myself. We have used several times and all food prepared was amazing! No worries about burnt food!


  81. The Best Evere

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2017

    Thanks rec tec !!! this is one of the best investments Ive made in a long time. I was a little worried about having to put it together but it was really easy the hardware is bomb proof so is the whole unit.So far have cooked ribs and brisket both turned out awesome am looking forward to many hours of cooking on this beautiful smoker.Thanks again would recommend this to all.Have to make one last adjustment I live in Arizona and saw the youtube clip where you can dial back the feed a bit.Oh bye the way got the kitchen sink bundle ,best value by a long shot.


  82. top of the line

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2017

    after watching my father cook a few summers on his traeger I decided to look into purchasing my own, except after reading the reviews I steered away and went w w rec tec 680. best decision I have made in a long time. I have had it set up for maybe two weeks ive done bacon wings veggies steak pork loins everything has come out fantastic. Even when it was in the high 30s the rec tec had 0 issues keeping set temp points. Its a great grill very tough and durable definetly need two people to set up unless you are a meat head lol


  83. Fantastic grill and great service!

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2017

    This is by far the best smoker grill I have used. It is built like a tank and looks great on the deck as well. The best tri-tip, ribs, smoked nuts, and pizza I have made is due mostly to this grill. Super easy to use and great temp control. The cold smoker has been really handy to make smoked spices, and occasionally a warming area to keep burgers or hotdogs. The service has been great too. When the grill arrived, the shipper had put a fork lift tong through the premium grill pad!! Not easy to do as strong as it is. I called and they sent me a new grill pad with no hassle at all. I have been recommending Rec Tec to all of my friends.


  84. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2017

    I ordered the grill expecting to be happy with it and I was still blown away with the results. Every single part on this grill is extremely high quality. I have cooked steaks on it and they are amazing. REC TEC has a really nice product and I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a pellet grill!


  85. The Grill i Had Too Have !!!

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2017

    I have been looking for a better smoker for awhile now. After reading over 350 reviews I knew this was the smoker -grill for me. I just couldn't wait for the shipping to get it. Not that there shipping is slow or anything. I was excited to get it and couldn't wait. So I decided to make the trip to get it myself. I drove from canton Ohio to Augusta Georgia. I got down there and I was 30 minutes late on a Saturday. I thought to myself no im going to have to stay in a hotel till Monday. Ben Lesshafft and three other workers were still there. I told them I messed up by making a stop in North Carolina and asked if they could still help me. They said no problem we'll fix you right up. I was so so grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I did not want to have to stay till Monday. You guys saved my bacon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Where I live if you're late getting to a store 1 MINUTE they'll tell you there closed. I'm not used to getting treated like they did at Rec Tec Grills. Ben even asked if I wanted some soda for the trip back. The customer service in the reviews is an understatement. I'm glad I was impatient and made the trip I would have never met the people behind RecTec Grills and how incredibly nice they all are. Make the trip its well worth it.
    As for the grill I got back to my cousins house in Kentucky had it assembled by 9:00a.m. by noon i cooked bacon in it to break it in. Then for supper i done steak and thick chicken breasts. My one cousin eats chicken breasts everyday of her life. If anyone is an expert on chicken breasts it would be her. Her exact words were "oh my god that was the best chicken breasts I've ever had in my life." well she's in her 30's and like I said she eats chicken breasts everyday so you do the math that is a lot of chicken breasts to be competing against. Once I got back home in Ohio I done brained whole chicken with a garlic butter injection that i make. With Rec Tec's honey rib rub. Excellent is all I can say absolutely excellent. So far I've cooked on it everyday except for one it rained that day. I will never look at another grill again I've finally found the one.
    Ps. The cold smoker attachment works excellent as a plate warmer when the temps are cold. Just put them in there on the bottom shelf 5 minutes before your food is done they'll be warmed without getting them smoked up.


  86. Best choice I've made

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2017

    This is a major upgrade for you trager owners.I love my Rec Tec!!! Wouldn't trade it for anything..don't hesitate on purchasing this investment and that's exactly what it is an investment ..if you enjoy smoking and putting out great food for friends and family don't think of anything else but Rec Tec!!!


  87. Brother's Birthday Present

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2017

    Bought this for my brother and we both love it! He was great with a grill anyway and this made him the BBQ Master! Pork, beef, venison, chicken... ANYTHING! Awesome!


  88. It's a tank and a Grill/Smoker

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2017

    The Rec Tec is built tough as nails but also with a fine attention to detail in its design making it not only durable, but functional and a darn good looking grill/smoker. We've used it about four times in the last couple weeks since we received it and everything turned out great. We've grilled/smoked a pork shoulder for pulled pork, baby back ribs, italian sausage, flank steak and a couple burgers with the searing grates. Oh - and a pound or so of thick cut bacon for that first cook - holy crap was that good. That'll likely be an every weekend breakfast feature. I've been smoking for a while and have received plenty of compliments on my cooking, but wife said the ribs were the best she's had so far. We'll be doing a large brisket for a retirement party in a couple weeks and who knows what in between. It's easy to use and easy to clean. We haven't used the cold smoker yet, except as a warmer, but it's also well-made and very functional. The traditional oven is not going to get nearly the use it did in the past.


  89. Nothing but the Best

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2017

    I received this a few weeks ago and i have been amazed every inch of the way! Grill is outstanding, I have done 2 cooks so far first was a brisket second was ribs. Everyone's first comment when they see the grill is, WOW!!! You guys have hit a home run with this one great job REC TEC!!!!


  90. Damn near the most perfect grill... Well worth the price!!!

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2017

    For years I have been disappointed with the grills I have bought in the past. They never seemed to last 3 years before they need work. I know I would need to spend more than a $1000.00 to get a good quality piece of equipment.
    Saw a infomercial about pellet grill, but not a REC-TEC Grill.
    After doing extensive research about pellet grills, I stumbled across the REC-TEC. Seeing the true difference between the quality of the different grills, I was very impressed with REC-TEC.
    After assembling and going through the initial burn. I was anxious to get grilling.
    We cooked chicken the first time and WOW... My wife actually ate two pieces and she never does that and she commented through eat how good it was.
    Have made several other things and they were great.
    It is a different type of cooking, because you don't have to baby sit it like other grills, no flare ups. Set your temp and walk away. AWESOME.
    Well worth the price.


  91. Love it

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2017

    We are still learning, but love this grill


  92. WOW what a bundle

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2017

    purchasing the kitchen sink was the way to go. Everything you need to get started enjoying your first cook. Totally amazed of the time it took to do the burn-in and enjoy our BLT in one evening. Too pretty to cook on the wife says.

  95. happy smoke, cooking to please rec tec is the one for me!

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2017

    I am extremely satisfied with my new rec tec 680. It took me about 3 hours to set it up,and I followed all the instructions to the letter. I did have to add some pellets to the fire box to get it going, but it has worked great ever since. I smoked a 6pound bottom round on it at 225 for about 6 hours which I then chilled and sliced for some of the best beef sandwiches on the planet. I also did two fresh pizzas on a standard stone and they both turned out awesome. Tomorrow is chicken Sunday and I can't wait to smoke them. The rec tec maintains very even temperature so burning is never an issue. I am very happy with my purchase.


  96. WOW

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2017

    I was on the fence for a pellet grill for well over a year now. I kicked the tires on a Traeger pellet grill and nearly pulled the trigger at a Road Show last summer. After careful review of Costco member experiences with the units (which was less than stellar), a Costco member had returned his third and final Traeger to Costco and bought a Rec Tec 680. I had not heard of REC TEC but I quickly started reading all of the reviews and watched all of their videos.

    If you're reading this review, you're on the right web site and looking at right grill/smoker. If you're on the fence, don't be. This unit is built like a tank and will last a long time. The PID controller does a stellar job maintaining temperature and it's nice being able to walk away from the cook.

    The items in the bundle package are well thought out and ad value. I would recommend this to everyone.

  98. Excellent Grill and Customer Service

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

    I read the reviews, did some researched and decided to purchase a Rec-Tec. The quality is superior and the customer service is better than anything else I've purchased on-line.

    If you're serious about BBQ, then don't waste your time and money on propane or wood. While these methods are fun, they do not produce the same consistent results as electric.

    The temperature controls enabled me to quickly master smoked salmon, port butts and ribs (still working on the brisket).




  99. Love My Rec Tec 680

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

    My first pellet smoker and I made the right choice. I've had my Rec Tec 680 for 7 days... This thing is awesome I have cooked Bacon, Pork Butts, Chickens and a Turkey and everything came delicious... Assembly was easy took about a hour and 30 minutes by my self...


  100. Many more great meals to come!

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2017

    Takes some time to assemble, and very good to have a helping hand.
    Easy to use and the temp probes get the meat just right.
    I'm sure after more experience I will be able to plan the total time to complete the meal.
