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.

I found a new hobby with this grill. I smoked spareribs using a rib glaze recipe from rec tec. The family loved the taste. The next day i smoked chicken breast. Very juicy and using the glaze on top they were amazing. My neighbors are getting teased with the smell of the smoke. Great grill.

Wow best food ever. New to smoking can't imagine a better way to start. This smoker makes it very easy
Posted by Bill on 10th Feb 2017
OK... first use - used smoke tube and did reverse sear with only salt - OMG the flavor was superb - never have I had that flavor on gas/charcoal grill...
cant wait to do pizza on the flat side of sear grates! I already am counting on best pizza flavor - temp is totally controlled - and omg no messing around w/charcoal!!!

We've used our grill/smoker several times when weather permits and love the end result. The temp stays accurate and the smoked flavor we get from the various pellets is awesome. We would recommend this grill to everyone. Also, the customer service at RecTec Grills is second to none. I've called them a couple of times and the response has been quick and they always had the right answer/resolution. Thanks to RecTec for building and offering such a great product that when taken care of, should last a lifetime.

I swore I would never cook on a pellet grill. I have to say that the Rec Tec has done a great job on the foods that I have tried already. Ribs and burgers were awesome, but I have to say steaks we are still learning. I was wrong the grill had done everything it has been advertised to do.

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

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!

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.
Posted by Jerry F 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.

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.

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.

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.
Posted by Todd H 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.

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

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.

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.
Posted by James Kelly 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.
Posted by David H. 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.
Posted by John Peterson DO 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!
Posted by Smitty 41 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.
Posted by James C on 23rd Nov 2016
This is an awesome grill. It reaches the set temp. quickly and holds it perfectly. The staff at Rec Tech are very helpful and professional. I love the convince of the grill and the taste of the food is excellent.

Posted by Albert Gargano 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 !
Posted by Derek 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.
Posted by Unknown 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.
Posted by Brett 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.
Posted by BillDeser on 14th Nov 2016
Everything taste better smoked. Well packaged for shipment. Great customer service. Still have a lot to try on the grill.

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

I made ribs that just fell off the bone. They were delicious and easy to make. The only thing I wish was for better instructions on attaching the child smoker.
Posted by Dave on 5th Nov 2016
Just got it and have made jerky and ribs... so far I am pleased beyond expectations... Delivery was FAST, assembly was easy enough. I feel it was $$ very well spent for a grill that will last a lifetime... Thanks

This is a lean mean cooking machine I've had ur for about 4 weeks and I've smoked 12lb picnic shoulder. Ribs. Pork chops. Brats. Chicken thighs. Pizza. And grilled rib eyes last night it makes anything you put on it so much easier to cook than my old Oklahoma Joe smoker get it you won't be disappointed

I have been thinking about buying the REC TEC grill for over one year.
I waited until the beginning of October to place the order so that i could get the kitchen sink and the cold box together.
The cold box was out of stock until October.
So far i have smoked chicken, ribs, brisket, trout, potatoes and cheese in the cold smoke box.
My friends and my wife just say " FANTASTIC "
Posted by Vic on 1st Nov 2016
I have been smoking meat for the last 20 years on a "stick burner" and am truly sorry that I did not get the RT-680 years ago.
The food I have prepared with the REC TEC is fantastic, and the grill really does do all the work!
I have been recommending this grill to all my friends, and definitely will continue to do so.
Posted by Brian f on 30th Oct 2016
I've been stalking the rec Tec review site for about a year now. I finally decided to pull the trigger and get a 680 with the kitchen sink bundle. Everything is very high-quality. I cannot be happier with the product and customer service. This smoker will definitely up your game. Don't waste your time waiting like I did. Buy it, you won't regret it!
Posted by Ron T on 27th Oct 2016
The only word I can use for my rec tec grill and my experience working with the rec tec team is awesome. I did my research for months, cooked on a treager, green Mountain, and yoder. The only one that I consider a close match to mine is the yoder. After my first 4 cooks I know I made the right decision. Started my first overnight cook for pulled pork for the wife's bunco group Friday night. Very confident there will be no problems coming up. I will be buying myself a Christmas gift in the next month when I order the cold smoker. The whole experience has been nothing but positive, the delivery driver even put my huge box in the garage. Looking for many years of use from my rec tec. I will try not forget my 2 gas grills, my Santa Maria grill, and my wood burning smoker. For the winter I see me using nothing but the rec tec. Thank you and keep the videos coming, see almost all of them. How about some using the cold smoker, recipes ideas.

We have never done any kind of smoking before. We LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

After researching grills for two weeks, I decided to pull the trigger and order a REC TEC Grill. I even called and asked several questions about the Grill and each one was patiently answered by Jody. I carefully reviewed every accessory and ordered every bell & whistle as each would add value and flavor to my overall grilling experience. When my grill arrived, I helped put it together which took approx. 2 hours. This grill will be around long after my grilling days. It is built for durability and sturdy. This is hands down the BEST grill I have ever owned. I plan to use every chance I get! Thank You!
Posted by Jason Tabbert on 20th Oct 2016
I love this smoker it's my first smoker. I smoked a brisket and ribs they turned out awesome. My next cook was a Tri tip and whole chickens. The problem I find is I have so much room on the grill and I don't want to waste pellets so I end up buying lots of meat. I eat it all week long. And give some of it to my neighbor "Father" he doesn't mind at all. I bought kitchen sink the new cover blanket for cold wheather. Go big or go home. I love all the videos Ray puts on you tube they really help with my cooks. And give me some confidence. Thanks Ray Carnes!!!

I purchased the kitchen sink bundle.
This is my first pellet grill
I have owned high end grills by Lynx with costs over $5,500. This grill with the kitchen sink option was under $2,000 delivered.
The delivery. The delivery company sent my grill to another person and I received their $4,000 big ass fan by mistake. This took about 3 days to get corrected. The people at Rec Tec were there and doing what they could. The delivery company was less service oriented.
The grill is of good quality and somewhat surprising good for the price. All the items in the package like the spice and sauce bundle, grill cover and grill pad are also what you would expect at a higher price point..
My son and I assembled the grill in about 50 minutes. It is a relatively easy assembly. I think it would take about 30 minutes longer if one person were to assemble it.
I tried the grill a couple times already and it performs well. Again, it may not be the most expensive grill/smoker that I have ever owned. However, it has been the most rewarding grill purchase that I have ever made.
I would recommend this grill for the first time purchaser to the well experienced.
Also, I would say this is a better choice over a charcoal or gas grill. It delivers a much better flavor over charcoal grills. It provides equal ease of use that a gas grill might deliver without the flare-ups. Simply set the desired temperature and walk away.

!)You hear so much about great customer support. Ok I've heard that before but in this case its 100% true. I had a question and made a phone call to their support people after hours. I did NOT leave a message just figured I would call back when they were open. Well before I could call them back the next day they had already called me back to see if I still had a question. Most support calls these days you get to pay pick a number on the phone then your get a recording. Here you dial the number and a REAL person answers the call and your question.
2) Product quality is tops...again you read this on the internet But once again everything you read is true, Don't want to waste my time writing and your time reading when everything that could be said has already been said much better than I could. I use my time to smoke something and I hope you will also when yours show up
Posted by Mike Webb on 19th Oct 2016
I have had my new REC TEC for about 3 weeks now. My timing on purchasing was bad because I've started a strict diet the week it got here. It is yelling at me to do ribs and pork butt but I have not caved in to its calling as of yet. Instead I have been able to grill and smoke some of the best chicken and salmon. The flavor and moistness of the chicken is amazing. The REC TEC is just as easy as they said it was. One push of a button set your temp and walk away. I am one very happy customer, so happy in fact I am planning on buying the smaller unit for my lake house.
Posted by Kevin on 18th Oct 2016
I have been smoking on an UDS for years now. Never planned on trying anything else. Decided to try a pellet smoker for ease of use more than anything. Didn't have high hopes for the smoking side of it. Have had my REC Tec for 3 weeks now. Boy was I wrong!! This thing is FANTASTIC. I wish now that I had started out with it years ago!!The smoke ring is GREAT!! We have used it almost every night, and love the recipes and rubs. My wife askes me every day whats for dinner tonight. I get everything ready in the morning, and leave her directions for putting it on. I monitor meat temp and cooker temp from work with a Tappecue. This is the BEST smoker I have ever used!!
Posted by Rick Johnson on 13th Oct 2016
The Rec Tec is everything you want in a grill/smoker. It is the best construction of any pellet grill I looked at and after having it for a couple of weeks I could sell them by letting people taste what I have cooked on it. Well worth the money.

Absolutely love my rec tec, made a sirloin tip roast today
Posted by Trey Vereen on 6th Oct 2016
This Grill is outstanding! It works as advertised and is the most well built outdoor cooker I've ever seen. The company is top notch and the owners even give you their personal cell numbers to call if you have problems after hours. Not to mention it comes with a 6 year warranty. It's very easy to cook with and the food comes out perfect! Thanks Rec-Tec!!!
Posted by JIM on 5th Oct 2016
Ordered the kitchen sink bundle and couldn't be any happier with my purchase. Everything arrived on time and in excellent condition. Assembly was a breeze and you can really see the quality put in to design and parts as you get it put together. I was able to stuff eight pork shoulders and a whole tenderloin in it and cooked for eighteen hours and fed 100 people. The grill kept the temperature just right and made it easy for me to do other things while the cooking got done. Most agreed it was the best Pork they had ever eaten and kept coming back for more!
Thank you REC TEC
Posted by Craig Miller on 1st Oct 2016
VERY VERY NICE. I'm impressed with the way the thing is built, solid, solid, solid! The food coming off of it has been amazing! My friends are also complimenting the grill. I'm still learning times and temps for the grilling portion, the smokes I've done have came out fantastic. I took 2'nd place in a prime rib cook off, lost by one vote! A few friends have stated they are going to buy one! I can't recommend it enough!
Posted by Billy on 30th Sep 2016
I bought the kitchen sink bundle after months of researching pellet grills. Having been a stick burner user for years this is a new experience for me. I have had my rec tec for a few weeks and am very glad a made this purchase. I have done wings twice , steaks, and ribs everything turned out great. Have not done a long cook yet but will be doing some butts and brisket very soon. I am very happy with the way you can just set the temp. and it forget it can not do that with a stick burner. So far I have nothing but good things to say about the rec tec. If you are looking for a pellet grill you can not go wrong with the rec tec. Best customer service in the business hands down.
Posted by Kurt on 30th Sep 2016
I have been wanting a smoker/grill for a long time. After extensive research I decided on the Rec Tec. This smoker/grill is well built. The kitchen sink bundle is a great option and I am glad I decided on it. Everything I have cooked on it has turned out perfect and it was so easy to do. When you can cook skinless/boneless chicken breasts and have them turn out extremely juicy and full of flavor then you have passed the ultimate test! I have been 100% satisfied with this product.
The customer service is exceptional. My order was fulfilled quickly and delivery was extremely fast.
I could continue on but the quality and performance of product speaks for itself. Combine that with great customer service, you can't go wrong in purchasing a Rec Tec.
Posted by Unknown on 29th Sep 2016
Since receiving my kitchen sink bundle in August I have grilled steaks, bacon, ribs, brisket, chicken and pork chops. Going to try some salmon this week. Every item has ended up perfectly cooked and tasting like a slice of heaven. Even got some vegan friends to try my home cured and smoked bacon! Thanks Rec Tec for a truly exceptional product.
Posted by Cari on 25th Sep 2016
I bought my grill 2 years ago, and we use it for everything. I love it and couldn't be happier with our purchase. It's also great that when you have a question or concern you talk to owners, or somebody who truly has a vested interest in the product and company not just an employee. My dad recently bought a mini and is more than happy with his purchase.
Posted by Claude Comeaux on 24th Sep 2016
I too like others went to Costco and bought a Traeger Century as a first grill o/a July 4th. Temps were off the cuff. Burned hotter than heck and very irregular. Customer service sent a new thermostat and to no avail had same problem. Customer service sucked. Told on 3 occasions someone would call to troubleshoot but never did. Took unit back to Costco for a refund and started doing my homework and bought the bundle. Seared ribeyes and they were great. Tomm a brisket will be smoked. Temp is constant and on cue. So far so good. Called once with a question and customer service was excellent. Thank you for a great product and stressing GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. Quality goods and great customer service will propel your company upwards

I purchased the Rec- Tec RT-680 Kitchen Sink Bundle. Also ordered the optional cold smoker box that won't be released till 10/1/16. I've used the smoker and it is by far the best investment spent for good times ahead. Look forward to smoke some cheese in the cold smoker. Thanks for such an exceptional product
Posted by Larry Brents on 20th Sep 2016
I did a lot of research on smokers, and decided that I thought a pellet smoker was the best option for me, then researched them and decided on the RecTec. I called to order my Kitchen Sink Bundle and have to say the customer service that you read about doesn't quit cover how good it really is...
It was about a week before I recieved my RecTec 680, and have been using it just about every other day since it was delivered. I have to say this is the best decision I have made for a purchase in a long time! I LOVE it!
I have done briskets, chicken and pork loin. I even had friends over just so that I could cook more.
Posted by Craig on 11th Sep 2016
We purchased the RT 680 and are very impressed with the workmanship and quality. The grill not only looks great, the BBQ food is even better. Simple to use and fantastic food...thank you Rec Tec!

Kitchen sink bundle arrived in perfect condition, nothing damaged. Freight driver wheeled it into the back yard for me. Took two of us about an hour to put it together. Online video to assemble was very helpful. Used it several times now. Ribs, chicken, pork butt for 10.5 hours, beef jerky all turned out great. Everything is top notch. My only complaints is the cover is a little tight but you figure it out after a few times and I wish the folding front shelf didnt have "Rec tec grills" cut out of the surface so cleaning rags or paper towels didn't catch on it. I'd also like to see either another add on shelf below the handle or hooks to hang the grills on when changing the foil. Overall, I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

I ordered the kitchen sink bundle and it arrived in Northern Nevada in less than a week. Putting it together was a breeze and, after seasoning the grill, we have smoked a variety of meats all of which have turned out perfectly.
We live off grid and I was concerned about the amount of electricity the grill would use but it has not been a problem. Just set it and forget it.
I would recommend the Rec Tec to anyone who is in the market for a pellet smoker.

After getting everything uncrated and put together I got to using this puppy. I have made a few dishes with great ease and success. 1 was even off the websites recipe list, bacon wrapped tenderloin!!! It was everything it was in the name of the dish and then some.. I love the sear kit makes steaks picture perfect. I did have a little issue getting the heat up over 450 but that has only happen 1 time. Otherwise I and my friends and family have had no complaints. The smoke tube is great for a extra smokey flavor and I am eyeballing the new second rack for the grill to expand my capabilities. Cant wait to do some winter cooking here the chicago land area. This thing rips even the wife has tried a few things on it. I would recommend this to everyone. Do your research and you will see the price for quality cant be beat!!! Buon appettio!!!

The brisket was the best! The grill is beautiful and easy to use. The remote transmitter and receiver makes it easy to monitor the temperature of the meat. We love the grill!

Everything about this is product is outstanding. The shipping came off flawlessly. The grill was easy to put together and is very well made. As for the results of using it, it is simply the best and easiest way to make amazing food!

I actually ordered this package over a month ago and wanted to wait a little bit before writing my review. Now that I have had the unit for some time I can say that its everything I wanted it to be.
Unfortunately the hot rod was bad right away and the grill was tripping my GFCI however they included a spare so I got that put in and was up and running. They then sent me a replacement out very quickly. Burn in went without a hitch and I was ready to make some bacon for the first cook and it was fantastic. However my first grilling of burgers and chicken was only okay and sadly I wished I would have used my weber! Well the grill grates were back ordered at first so I didn't have them. I used them as soon as they came and they fixed the issue, I could grill now! I didn't think the smoke flavor was sharp enough so I cold smoked the meat with the included Amazen tube for 20 min on the next cook...another problem solved. The first go round I used RecTec pellets and when that bag ran out I used the perfect blend bag that came, much more to my liking for smoke flavor. Very grateful that my order came with different types of pellets to try. I'm now using 50/50 of the two included types until I run out. I've never cooked a turkey before, but with the included temp equipment it was no problem and very worry free to cook it to the correct temp. The only item I don't care for that much is the cover. Its of good quality but shouldn't be such a pain to put on. They should have made it square at the bottom and then a pull cord to tighten it up vs trying to make it quite so form fitting. Obviously I'm not the only one as they had to make a youtube video for it, which I am grateful for.
In summary if you don't already have the correct equipment to go with the grill get the Kitchen Sink Bundle. Now that I have it I won't need these items in the future. Also be prepared to learn the grill if you've never used a pellet grill before. It is a 5 star product but you need to give yourself some time to learn the grill and play around with tricks that fit your own style. I love that my wife now grills, she never would mess around with the briquettes before but now she enjoys this unit as much as I do!

I finally made the plunge into the smoker world, after years of encouragement by my brother. He is a Traeger guy and encouraged me to buy the same--but I did my own research and was blown away by the overwhelmingly positive reviews for REC TEC all over the place online including Amazon. I can tell you as an engineer this is a sturdy, well-built grill. It is very heavy due to the quality (thickness) of the steel used. I've done a rack of ribs and steaks so far and they both turned out excellent. I'm blown away at how much better the taste and how much easier the process of using a smoker than a bar-b-que. I can't believe how steady the REC TEC holds temperature--it is dead on. I highly recommend the REC TEC.
Posted by John on 30th Aug 2016
Well honestly I was a little skeptical at first seeing it was 1900.00, but now I can say it was worth penny spent!!! Highly recommend this smoker!!!! So easy to use and the food....well my wife says her and I are going to get fat!!!!
Posted by Todd & Kathy on 29th Aug 2016
We couldn't be happier with our grill! The food is so moist and the smoky flavor doesn't overwhelm, just enhances. Best part was that there wasn't a lot of assembly. It's really a hearty product and the follow-up customer service has been great!
Posted by Taylor on 27th Aug 2016
Got the kitchen sink along with the smoker box. Set-up was a breeze, only took two beers (each). First cook was cowboy ribeye, set the temp at 210 and put the steaks in the smoker. Waited one hour, heated the pit and moved the steaks to the sear kit. Reviews were best steak ever. Next did burgers, lean meat slow cooked, best burger I've ever had. Next experiment, breaded chicken fingers, flavor profile was something out of sight. Had to wait to right this review until after the ultimate test. Bought a large brisket at SAMs and smoked that sucker 16 hours, turned out to be one of the best cooks I've ever done, even on my stick burner. Try the banging brisket rub, can't go wrong.

I am totally happy with my purchase from Rec Tec Grills. I called Rec Tec 2 times before I ordered and got a quick response to my questions both times. My order was processed promptly and I received the grill in about 8 days.
Posted by Adam Collins on 22nd Aug 2016
My wife purchased this for me after catching me researching them leading up to fathers day. Well, we have cooked on this enough times to go through almost 4 bags of pellets already. This evening, after a lot of rain, humidity, and switching to a new bag of pellets; we started the grill. Unfortunately there was no magic, no heat, and darnit no fire. So we cleaned everything out, and realized the auger was not feeding pellets into the fire box.
I called Ashley or Ashton in customer service at 6PM, and he was as understanding and helpful as anyone could ask for. He walked us through the correct process to trouble shoot, had a new auger motor on stand by for us, and even got me to a tutorial video to walk me through the auger removal and cleaning process.
These guys are nothing but top notch, and deserving of every positive review they get. If you are ever looking for someone to represent your products in Northern Indiana, I am definitely available as a former Augusta boy myself.
Thank you for a perfect experience with customer service, and the grill kicks butt.

We love our new RecTec grill it holds the temperature better than other wood pellet grills even when windy. When we opened the kitchen sink bundle it was like Christmas morning, a lot of fun. The delivery service was organized and on time. Would highly recommend , food comes off this grill fantastic! Including veggies and bison. The only thing my wife complained about was why she did not get a T-shirt.

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
Posted by Teena Scott 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.
Posted by James larson 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.

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.

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
Posted by Unknown on 14th Jun 2016
This is the first pellet grill I've owned and completely love it.
Posted by WAH 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.
Posted by Bob H on 12th Jun 2016
The flavors of the foods I have cooked, have been great. My friends hate me...Thank You!
Posted by Mike 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!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Matthew F. on 18th May 2016
This is by far the best grill I have ever cooked on! Phenomenal Results!!!
Posted by Jason 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.
Posted by Timothy 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!
Posted by Brian 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.
Posted by Blake G. 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!!!
Posted by Unknown on 9th May 2016
Incredible, grilled for 8 adults steaks, hamburgers, brats, potatoes and asparagus. Still had room on the grille. Flavor was fantastic!
Posted by MP 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.
Posted by Richard 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!
Posted by Tony Thomas on 6th May 2016
The Rec Tec grill is great never used a pellet grill smoked great the taste of the meat was great had a nice smoke ring I loved it set the temp & 6 hrs later done perfect I had a question called a number on the card it was late at night they answered the phone GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE !
Posted by Unknown on 5th May 2016
Great service... Shipping co made mistakes and rec tec made it right.. The grill itself is amazing... I'm cooking carne asana as I type for cinco de mayo... Got the cold smoker as an add on... Rice/beans/tortillas r in there warming up.

Best grill ever
Posted by Scott 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!

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.
Posted by Brett on 2nd May 2016
After doing my due diligence I decided to purchase the Rec Tec kitchen sink bundle definitely thinnest bang for the buck. Free shipping too. Took a little more than one hour to put together. Everything was well packaged. The best part are all the videos by rec tec or rec tec owners they cut the learning curve way down. Have now cooked on my rec tec turkey, pulled pork (22lbs) fish, steak, hamburg, beef jerky(15lbs) two 10 lbs leg of lamb at once plus potatoes for 20 people it came out perfect and on time because we control the heat so well. Most things I tell people to do their own research and don't make to many recommendations, but would definitely recommend the rec tec grill.
Posted by Jeff Russell 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
Posted by BDH 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.
Posted by Steve 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.

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 JN 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.

Got the grill and had to wait a couple of weeks due to cold weather and snow in pa. When finally got to season did one burn at 400 then cooked a pound of bacon to season. My son said it was the best bacon he had ever had. Have grilled shrimp and they were awesome. When I first bought the grill I was concerned could not sear. I was in Augusta working and went to the store and they assured me the searing grates would sear. This is why originally I was looking at the Cookshack 500. Hard to pass up the deal on the rec tech. I reversed seared steaks this weekend and they were awesome which brings me to the outstanding customer service. I thought I would try the extreme smoke feature for the steaks since I wanted some real smoke flavor. When I entered this function the fan was going on and off. I thought it WS the plug but it wasn't. I took it off the extreme function and the fan continuously ran. Tried again and same thing. I thought it was not working. I called the emergency number and got the answer machine. I had the owners card and was told to call with a question so I called the first name Ben. Sure enough he answered I explained what was going on and he stated that is the way it was suppose to work. I felt silly but was impressed one of the owners took time out on a Sunday afternnoon to answer my question. I am glad I chose the rec tec and would recommend to anyone in the market for a pellet grill.
Posted by Mike Panzer 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.
Posted by Blane White 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.
