  1. Cooking at its best

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2017

    Was looking at reviews of Traeger grills and came across RecTec. Glad I did. The food I've made on it is outstanding and the customer service is second to none.


  2. pleased with my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    Very pleased with my purchase of my Rec Tec 680 Grill


  3. Cooks great and Looks Awesome

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    This is a topic of conversation even before the meat is served. I really like the ease of use with the PID temp control and pellet feed.

    Rex Tec 1 great company

    Thank You


  4. great grill

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    I recently purchased the RecTec grill after many impressive meals off my friends. I went for the total package with all the bells and whistles. This grill can do it all from hot and fast to slow and low temp cooking. The total package is a great bargain that has you ready to cook in no time after it arrives. I wanted to replace the gas grills I have had and fought with in the past from running out of gas to hot spots and flare ups.

    Just order and have the food ready to put on.

    Great purchase, great value and easy to use!


  5. Very Happy!!

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    I don't know why I waited two months to make the purchase. Once I pulled the trigger, I could not wait for it to get here. I went to the distribution center to pick it up so I did not have to wait two more days for it to be dropped off at my house.
    Assembly was easy. I did make one phone call to the customer service. They quickly answered my question and gave me a few more pointers.
    I was cooking like a pro the next night.
    My daughter asked me if I liked my new grill. I said yes , why? She replied, you have not stopped smiling since you got it! I explained to her.
    There are not many times in life that you truly feel like you got your moneys worth, with product I know I have got my money's worth. Plus a great company behind it.
    Thank you


  6. great product

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    My only complaints are that it is too short, I am 6'1 just seems too low. And it is not made in USA. This product screams USA.
    I received this on a Thursday afternoon, assembled immediately, pretty easy. Bolts seem to be a tad short.
    Seasoned with bacon as suggested. That Friday cooked steaks,then Saturday cooked for 50 people. 2 - 9# pork shoulders, 25 chicken beast and of course hot dogs. Performance was excellent, the control of the heat takes the stress out of mananging the temps.
    Looking forward to another party


  7. High Quality and a ton of goodies!

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    High quality smoker. Ton of extras with the kitchen sink package. The only thing missing with the kitchen sink is a Rec- Tec hat! I would recommend the kitchen sink!


  8. Quality and Customer Service

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    I ordered the Kitchen Sink, and it was by far the best value in the pellet smoker market. After looking at other brands, the quality in the RT-680 is so far ahead at Rec-Tec's price point, it's not even close (watch the video comparing it to the Traeger). The unit assembled easily in about an hour and has performed flawlessly. In the 2 weeks I've had the grill, I've done ribs, butt, pork roast, chicken, and reverse-seared T-bones, and they all turned out perfect. Brisket is next. In researching pellet smokers, the thing that drew me to Rec-Tec was the 5-Star ratings across the board. I also saw a few positive comments on the customer service. The positive ratings are great, but I can honestly say the customer service is even better. Within 3 minutes of submitting my order, I received a call from Rec-Tec welcoming me to the "family" and letting me know what to expect for the shipping. Everything arrived well-packaged with no damage. The only issue I had was the BBQ sauce bottles leaked a little which is not uncommon when shipped to 6300' altitude in Colorado. I e-mailed Rec-Tec on a Friday evening to let them know about it in case they needed to look at different bottle seals for higher altitudes. Andy called me on Saturday morning to get the details and shipped out new sauces for me that day. I did not request new sauce or expect it, but he sent it anyway. As a bonus, I told him I was about to do my first cook (ribs) and he talked me through it. Best ribs I ever had! Now that's customer service. From my research, you're not going to find that from other brands. So, bottom line, for the price you cannot beat Rec-Tec for quality and customer service.


  9. Last Grill I will ever Buy!

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    Well worth the money , very well made, not cheap like the competitors. I purchased the total package(kitchen sink)
    Maintains heat very well while using little consumption of pellets. Very impressed.


  10. very good grill

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    Only thing i could see changed is the height. My son Ben and i bought one 2 weeks go and we are both tall. We both agree they could be taller.


  11. Best decision on BBQ

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    So far I've used it to cook several chicken breast, 3 rack of amazing baby back ribs and 1 brisket. And I haven't been off on a weekend since I received it 2 weeks ago.


  12. Awesome compared to Traeger

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    I had a Traeger for about three years and it did a fine job till it started to rust, plus I wanted a larger grill. After doing lots of research and reading blogs I decided to order a grill I had never heard of before. Rec Tec has done an incredible job of building a great grill/smoker. My order was shipped out the next day by freight. Due to tracking the order I saw that it arrived in my city on a Wed. And they finally called the net Tues afternoon to schedule delivery on Wed. It sat for almost a week. Not impressed with the freight company, but very impressed with Rec Tec. My only disappointment is that it is made in China. It is rugged and heavy duty and looks badass.


  13. New Rec-Tec 680

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    I have had my new Rec-Tec for about 3 weeks now and am quite impressed. Love the convenience and great taste that a pellet grill provides. It appears to be built like a tank and should last for years. I am keeping my Weber gasser for reverse searing of steaks but will use the Rec-Tek a majority of time. Ordered the kitchen sink package and the front shelf and additional rack were missing. Called customer service and they shipped me those items right away. Terrific customer service as many reviewers have mentioned. The rave reviews about their customer service was a big determination in deciding which grill I was going to purchase. Very pleased so far!


  14. Best Grill Ever

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    Just got my grill and have used it a few times already. The experience was great from the buyer's perspective. Rec Tec took good care of me and made sure the order arrived as promised. They provided all the support I needed to get it up and running. It is clear that everyone I spoke to goes beyond just working there - they live the grillin' life!

    The product itself is really cool looking and works like a dream. It is well-built and reliable. The sophisticated control system handles everything except taking all the credit for your smoking masterpiece! I am a huge fan of the grill and the company.


  15. Smooth operation and very easy to clean.

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    Excellent grill. Easy to operate and give great results.
    It maintain a truly constant temp and gives just the right
    amount of smoke flavor to the meats.
    It is very well built and easy to clean.
    I highly recommend this grill.


  16. Great Product Easy to Use

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2017

    I have been looking at buying a pellet smoker/grill for the last 6 months. After much research I landed on the 680. We have already gone through a bag and a half of pellets and I haven't even done a overnight smoke.

    Only thing that I believe needs improvement is the wheels and casters. This is a lot of weight for them to handle and rolling the 680 out of the garage and back in after use seems to be a little much as one of the casters already seems loose.


  17. The grill is very heavy duty and holds a steady temperature

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2017

    I am getting some great results on the 680. So far I have done beef ribs, chicken wings, steaks and turkey breasts. The turkey is awesome on sandwiches. I have had to adjust the temp up to get it to where I wanted on the maverick temp reading. Works fine like this but I may test the maverick then get the rec tec adjusted if the maverick temp is correct.


  18. Fantastic Grill

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    This grill is absolutely amazing. Hands down the best grill I have ever owned. If I was going to not pick it I would have to say the grill cover is a bit of a pain in the ass to remove. It fits absolutely perfect. Which makes it rather difficult to remove. The 1st time I removed It, BAM, ripped a little on the edge where there thermostat and stainless shelf are. Let's be honest tho, if that is my biggest complaint I really don't have a complaint. If you are in the market for a pellet grill then look no further, this bad boy is the cream of the crop.


  19. Best BBQ Investment Ever!

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    I have had my Rec Tec 680 for about 3 weeks now and I am now a complete RT addict. I have been smoking for about 20 years and including my 680, currently have 5 smokers, four of which will soon be up for sale! It is so easy to use that instead of only smoking on weekends, I now smoke all through the week. Smoked meatloaf, smoked stuffed peppers, smoked salmon, all of which can be done in a very short period of time, make weeknight smoking a breeze with the RT 680. Turn on the power, set the temp, load up your food and walk away. Have you a cold one while you wait on smoked perfection!

    I bought the Kitchen Sink Bundle because it had so many extras that I wanted, and after doing the math, the Bundle only made sense. To be honest I didn't care two rats tails about the rubs or sauces that came with it as I always make my own, but thought that I would give them a try. I'm sure glad that I did, because they are dynamite!!! Will be reordering some of them for Christmas gifts for my other smoking buddies. Long story short, I am freaking out over this thing. I have never loved a piece of equipment so much in my life!

    P.S,....the horns point up. Embarrassed myself when I posted pics online.


  20. Absolutely Awesome!

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    Even though I have only had the grill for a couple of weeks, I already feel like a master chef! The quality and performance is beyond expectations and the ease of preparing top shelf food has to be tried to believe! Very happy customer!


  21. Quality

  22. Taking the Grilling Bull by The Horns

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    Having enjoyed some meats cooked on a Traeger in May, and my first experience with a pellet grill, I was all in to get one of my own. But I wanted to research first to see what's out there. Once I discovered Rec Tec and read all the great reviews, I was convinced it was a great product. But all the reviews mentioned the one thing more important to me than any other - customer service. And that's what sold me. Now that I own one and have experienced the post-sale service, I understand all the praise this company receives. Yeah, I don't know that much about pellet grills, but so far the Rec Tec has already taken my bbq to new and wonderful levels. Best outdoor cooking I've ever done, period. Combine that with the best, most personal customer service possible, and buying a Rec Tec is a no brainer!! Getcha one!


  23. Easy to use

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Great smoker, tried pork butts, they took a little longer than I thought they should, it was just me getting the hang of this grill. Would have given 4 and 3/4 stars for the use of phillip's head bolts over allen head, minor problem. Also the long bolts are abut three threads too short, I got them to work but not easy. The grill/meat thermometer is not real durable, LCD screen cracked after it fell from the grill, also not that easy to program. I will get one more durable and easier to use, but otherwise it's a great package though I still don't have the cover for grill and the cold smoke box yet, backordered.
    I do love it!


  24. Very Pleased

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Very happy with our new Rec Tec

    Highly Recommend to everyone


  25. Best Pellet Grill Available

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    I had researched several pellet grills and was considering a Traeger when I a friend at a guys golf weekend in Alabama told me to check out the Rec Tec 680. When I returned home, I finished my research reading all the reviews and cult like or family like following for the Rec Tec. One concern was the shipping experience as it appeared you had to be at home for the delivery and I travel frequently so I delayed my purchase. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered on a Monday Night after July 4th and the Kitchen Sink Bundle was delivered to my home in Texas on Thursday in perfect condition. I did add on the cold smoker and my grill cover is still on backorder which is my only complaint. I watched several youtube videos on un-packaging and assembly prior to starting on Friday. Make sure you have a good box cutter and the buddy system with a beer would have been helpful. The quality of the packing and the grill/components is top of the line. I do agree with some of the comments on slightly longer stainless steel bolts would be helpful. I was able to assemble the entire unit with cold smoker box and move to my backyard by myself, but agree a buddy would have been helpful. After initial burn in, my wife returned from the store with 2 pounds of thick cut pepper bacon that we used to season the grill on the grill mats - absolutely outstanding! I then proceeded with a 15 hour 225 degree smoke of a 10 pound pork shoulder that came out perfect. The 3-2-1 Best Ribs Ever recipe worked well for baby backs last weekend. Texas Jack's chicken thigh recipe is next, followed by meatloaf and then brisket. I've been able to slow cook a few jalapeno sausages in between that we amazing. Looking forward to seeing how the cold smoker works on trout after a future fishing trip and on cheese when the ambient temps in Texas get below 95 degrees. Follow the many great videos and recipes available on youtube, facebook, etc. provided by Rec Tec and their pellet grilling family and you'll be the envy of your friends and neighbors. Great product guys!


  26. RT680

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    So far I am very pleased. Turn it on and let it do its thing.


  27. Grill Master overnight.

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    I waited on making my decision to get a Rec Tech for over a year. After doing the research, reading the reviews, I could not find a reason to wait any longer. I jumped in and got the kitchen sink bundle which was more than I needed, but find myself utilizing all of it over time. So far I have tried my hand at Boston Butt (1st place), pork chops, pot roast, polish sausage, flank steak (2nd place), pork belly (for dried beans, which added awesome smoke flavor), a couple of hens, and Salmon (wives fav). Brisket is on my radar next, the ease of turn on, set temp (225) and go on about your day or to sleep and wake up to perfect smoked BBQ.


  28. screams quality!!

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    I just want to say I absolutely love this Rec Tec 680 very easy to use set it forget it! Everyone that sees it loves it! Food comes out amazing! Both neighbor's on my left and right will be purchasing the minies seeing that that don't need the size but want the quality that Rec Tec has with their grills. I would have bought a Treager for the same money but it was out of stock THANK GOD FOR THAT!@ I would have been kicking myself in the Ass after seeing and knowing about Rec Tec so with that Thank You Rec Tec


  29. My first RecTec

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Went to actual factory while I was visiting family in GA. Had to have one so I ordered one.
    There are a two things I didn't like with my order.

    1st the shipping company, they really didn't take good care of my grill while in transit. I was able to unbend the things that was bent on my own without having to get RecTec involved.

    2nd the long bolts that come with the grill wasn't long enough. Looks like someone cut the ends off premature. I had to go my nearest Ace Hardware store and buy the correct size bolts to put the grill together.

    Other than that, the grill is amazing. Used it twice already and my family loves it. I bought the Kitchen sink bundle so I got everything but the cold smoker which I might get later.


  30. I love my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    After spending quite a bit of time researching online and almost proceeding with the Trager, I chose the rec tec 608. I'm so glad I did. The ordering process was extremely simple and I was amazed at how fast the entire shipment arrived at my home in Utah. Enjoyed my conversations with the people at rec tec and they have extremely helpful. Assembly was simple as well. The smoker itself works amazing and every food item we've cooked so far has been absolutely delicious. I'm going to try wings tonight and brisket later this week! I look forward to furthering my Pit Master skills, LOL!


  31. best grill ever!!!

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2017

    We are still playing with different foods and meats to grill and smoke and have enjoyed every one. We've smoked a pork shoulder, brisket, baby back ribs; cooked burgers, dogs, and tons of veggies! In fact, my wife and I hardly eat out anymore and would rather stay home and grill healthier foods together. It's been a blast cooking and spending better quality time together while making our favorite and new meals. Highly recommend for a novice like us or a master smoker.


  32. Great Smoker/Grill

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2017

    I'm not a person to normally write reviews, but this thing has exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Kitchen sink package is the way to go IMHO. . I got my Rec-Tec 680 the end of March and I wanted to use it a while before reviewing it.

    Pros:
    Very efficient on pellet use.
    Cook temp is spot on the entire cook.
    40# of pellets...............self explanatory.
    Get the cold smoke box. Great warmer and can also cook somethings at lower temps if you are cooking high temp on the main cook area.
    Stainless steel lids and shelves make for easy cleanup.
    Best fitting grill cover of any grill I've ever owned.
    Great being able to do a low temp smoke or high temp cook,

    Critiques:

    Nothing major to knock them on, just a couple small things.

    I wish the leg bolts on assembly were 1/4" longer with torx head. Would make assembly a bit easier IMHO.

    The second shelf is nice, but a bit awkward IMHO because it would be nice to have more clearance between the bottom & top rack when being used.

    My only problem I've had with my rec tec is the sticker in the pellet hopper they are required install to not stick your fingers in the auger because of our sue happy society came off and made its way into the auger with some pellets and balled the auger up. I was mechanically proficient enough to solve the problem myself, but just a heads up to the Rec-Tec team and future users.

    Overall, a great smoker/grill, makes great food, and is very easy to use and seems to be very well built with quality materials.



  33. love it

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2017

    Love everything about it. The grill mat was damaged in shipping and they sent a replacement same day. Only thing is I didn't get a manual. No big deal as the Internet has all the details!!


  34. Great Quality at a fair price

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2017

    I have been wanting a pellet smoker for months....came across the Rec Tec 680 online...I have to say after much research and reading the experiences of others, this is the grill I chose....so far it has been an absolute pleasure to use and cook for friends and family...The construction and materials used are heavy duty and of great quality...The customer service and the willingness of the company to help with any issues is something you just don't see these days...Very happy to have made this purchase....(Rec Tec 680 Bundle)


  35. GREAT PRODUCT!

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    I absolutely love my new RT 680
    I cooked 2 large briskets on it and the guys at work
    did not believe I actually cooked them. They thought I bought them from a BBQ joint.
    great customer service as well.


  36. Amazing, Easy To Use Pellet Grill/Smoker

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    Super impressed with the Rec Tec from a quality and performance standpoint. Very well made and easy to use. Food comes out amazing time after time.


  37. Awesome product! Pull the trigger!

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2017

    My wife and I did quite a bit of research for months and decided on the RECTEC. We have been very pleased so far. It has only been a month but I have used it almost daily. 2 days of smoking for 6 hours and about 10 grilling hours so far. Delicious and amazing food! Love the smoke tube and super smoke function, as well as the controller! Get the kitchen sink package!!! You won't regret it! You guys are awesome! Look forward to using this thing for years to come! Thanks!


  38. AWESOME...AWESOME...AWESOME

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2017

    Since 1-15-17 I have purchased both grills, all the apparel, rub & sauces accessories, except the smoker, couldn't be more pleased, a little tip on the apparels, you may want to get a size larger as i did, everything fits great. The only purchases i haven't purchased are the upgrades & service parts, because i have no need for them as of now!!!! What can i say about customer service, second to none. LOVE being a REC TEC'ER living the life every day!!!! 5 stars plus 5 AWESOME, AWESOME,AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!


  39. Meets Expectations and more

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2017

    I bought this for my husband for Father's Day, although I ordered a little late and received it right before the 4th. Let me just say that we have been eating a lot of meat. My husband loves it and I love that I don't have to cook as much! My husband wished that the temperature could reach a little lower than 180 since its gets hot in MO! He said it's easy to use, clean, and can cook a lot. He's definitely been showing it off. Thanks!


  40. Amazing!

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    Bought it for my husband for Father's Day a little late and it came in right before the 4th of July. We have not stopped eating smoked meat. My favorite so far is the reversed sear ribeye. I haven't cooked a main meal since we received it.


  41. Better than I expected

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    I spent several months shopping and looking at all the reviews for pellet grills. Yoder, Camp Chef, Traeger, Green Mountain and the list goes on. I even have a few friends and neighbors that have Greater and Green Mountain pellet grills. After all my research and following reviews I decided to take the plunge and buy the RECTEC RT 680. The set up was simple and there is a video on the web that can help simplify it if needed. During the initial burn in I noticed that once it reached 400 degrees it stayed and never changed even 1 degree, IMPRESSIVE! My first try was a 6lb brisket and was nervous about it. But it looked AMAZING and everyone loved it. I took 2 pieces that were left to work for a coworker to try that used to own his own restaurant and was the head chef. He loved it and had tried several of the other workers brisket that they wanted to try and mine was the best he had out of all the others. Thank you for an AWESOME product that will be a part of our everyday cooking from now on!


  42. A No-brainer

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    You will not be disappointed. After putting it together (not difficult), we spent the next 4 days cooking. Truly, a great grill! Great communication from the company after ordering the product. Quality still exists!


  43. Awesome Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2017

    Grill was very easy to assemble. Used a Rec Tec recipe for spare ribs. Friends that were over said they usually don't eat ribs but these were real good. The wood gave just enough flavor to the ribs. Cooked some chicken breasts as well. Very juicy and flavorful. Don't know why I wanted so long to buy my Rec Tec.


  44. AMAZING

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2017

    Too much to praise here and not enough patience to type, love the smoker and customer service has been awesome. Kitchen sink option was the way to go, Everything was there but the bottles of sauce had leaked out of sealed lid. I got over it. Trying new recipes every weekend, no worries, love it!


  45. Exceeded Expectations!

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2017

    I received my Rec Tec about three weeks ago. Assembly was a breeze with help from the video. I've put a brisket, burgers, chicken, fish, shrimp, pizza's, veggies, and steaks on so far. All I can say is I wasted time by not having ordered one before now! The ease of cooking plus the flavor of the foods is amazing. Our home oven has become obsolete! It is so easy to set and use. The customer service is outstanding. I had a simple question after hours on a Saturday. I didn't leave a message when I found out they had already left. Monday I receive a call wanting to know if everything was ok and if I needed anything. Now that's service! As advertised. Well worth the money. I'm feeling like a Pit Boss!


  46. Great Product!

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    We've done pork loin, beer can chicken, pulled pork, filets, burgers, stuffed jalapenos, brisket,cornbread stuffing stuffed chicken, NY strips, and grilled chicken breast.... in the last two weeks since the 680 was delivered..... All came out great!


  47. Awesome Grill and Package...except

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    Let me start out by saying that the grill has been amazing and has produced an excellent product every time it is used. The out of stock items (Grill Mat & Front Shelf) were shipped so quickly to me they got there before my grill did.

    My only complaint (more of an annoyance) is the bolts that are provided with the grill are BARELY long enough during installation. I racked my knuckles multiple times trying to get everything on the very short bolts.

    Amazing product that I would definitely recommenced to anyone; it is definitely worth the money.


  48. Awesome

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2017

    Awesome smoker! All the research led me back to Rec Tec. Best decision...everything has turned out great.


  49. Simply Awesome!!!

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2017

    I've used wood fired and propane smokers for years, but using a Rectec is simply awesome! I have gotten rid of all of my other smokers because this simply does the job. I love that I can set it before I go to bed, sleep all night, and not have to worry about keeping the temperature steady or feeding it wood. I can now smoke things more often since I don't have to babysit it the whole time. It is well insulated, holds the temperature, and makes me want to find new things to cook on it. Chose this over the Yoder, and glad I did.


  50. Holy Smokes!

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2017

    I cant say enough about the absolute fantastic quality of the REC TEC smoker, but it's so much more than that. The customer service has been first class. I was having some issues with the shipper, REC TEC reached out to me and then the shipper and made it right. When it did arrive, though late, the packaging was solid and secure and everything arrived without the slightest scratch.

    Now to the important stuff. The day after I put my smoker up, I put it to use. Within the last two weeks I've smoke ribs, chicken thighs, three pork tenderloins, a big fatty, brats, and my favorite...a beef brisket and burnt ends. Everything was delicious with great smoke penetration and the moisture was off the chart. In my mind, the brisket is the mother of all tattle tales...and this tale had a very happy ending. After eighteen hours, the meat had a perfect tug, a beautiful pink smoke ring that was a full 1/4 inch deep and a great smoky flavor thanks to he REC TEC pellets. I love my new smoker!


  51. Best purchase ever!!

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2017

    I recently received my rec Tec and absolutely love it!. I've made the best chicken, loin, ribs, butt, and steak I've ever had! I'm getting ready for my 1st competition. I'm sure the results will be great. This grill is so easy to use my wife even uses it and she's never cooked out in her life. The machine is extremely efficient as well. I smoked a pork butt for 12 hours and my hopper was still 90% full. This is the best purchase I've ever made.


  52. Great so far!

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    I have only had it for a couple weeks and have not been able to do a long slow cook yet. But what have done has turned out great. I would call it a subtle smoke flavor which appeals to more of the family! Did a whole chicken, turned out moist and tender, used the remote to monitor the temp and pulled it out just before it was done, then make a smoked chicken stock from the bones! My only complaint is the length of the bolts on the legs, they should be longer! Other than that I am really excited to get more things going on there to see how it does on long smokes! The other reviewers were right about the customer service, top notch! The kitchen sink bundle is the way to go! Thank you Rec Tec!


  53. Freakin' Awesome!!!

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    Being the skeptic that I am, I thought this REC TEC pellet grill was going to be the waste of money, just like the gas/charcoal “Char-Griller” grill we bought three years ago that rusted out and is going to be repainted an ugly bright green and used as a planter to either hold plants or the manure it is worth. BOY, WAS I WRONG!!!!
    I heard pellet grill were the next best thing. We have one at the fire station. I got online and looked at Best pellet grills. Up came this video of two good ol’ boys talking about this magnificent grill. I am thinking sarcasticly, “Come on, sure! Nothing is as it seems.” I would go from store to store. I knocked out one brand after another. I did all kinds of research on so many brands that I had to keep track on a large note pad. I studied all their reviews. Remember, I am a skeptic, so I believe the bad reviews. I could NOT find a bad review on Rec Tec. I was a little disappointed. I kept digging and never found someone who hated this grill. I tried everything to knock the Rec Tec out of the running. But it was now at the top of the list of grills to buy.
    It is difficult buying something you cannot touch. But the video where he compares the Rec Tec with the Treager piece by piece turned the table, especially, talking about the different steel types and the 6 year warranty. Treager only has a two year warranty.
    Ok, so now I decided it is going to be a Rec Tec, I think! I compare some more. Everything still comes back to Rec Tec.
    I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the kitchen sink bundle. Again, doing the research, I priced each item out. On my list of individual items, I left out the items I really could care less about and it was still cheaper to buy the kitchen sink bundle than stupidly buying the grill and paying the shipping and handling and then purchasing each one of the items individually and paying the shipping and handling on those items as well, individually. I ordered it late that night.
    Unbelievable I get a call in the morning thanking me for the order and telling me what to expect and when to expect it. Five days late, a truck delivers the grill, the pellets and all the items that Rec Tec said would be there. Believe me I checked off each item.
    I could not believe the craftsmanship of this thing. It is the Cadillac of grills, very sturdy, and very well made.
    I put it together. We had a beer to celebrate and cooked the bacon. Best damn bacon EVER! It tasted as if it was cooked over a campfire. Next night, I bought a pre-made pizza. Rec Tec cooked it just like an oven. Tasted a little like cardboard. Not Rec Tecs fault. It was Target’s fault. Next night, two chickens cooked to perfection according to the recipe. I was thinking, this Rec Tec is a little big. That is so not the case. Fourth of July comes. My wife and I invite another couple over. We have ribs, pork butt, beans, mac and cheese all smoked on the grill. I didn’t have to use the oven in the house and thank God for the second shelf to hold the beans and mac and cheese.
    I am finally able to say I love my Rec Tec, sincerely. By the way, the friends that came over for the fourth of July want a Rec Tec. Their daughter and son-in-law want one too.
    Cooking that pork butt for 16 hours and never having to refill the hopper was fantastic. Yes, I keep thinking this thing is to good to be true. I am continually disappointed at how wrong I was. This is a fantastic grill.


  54. awesome smoker /grill

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    I have used the 680 four times in the first week. Everything turned out great. May as well get the kitchen sink and save on shipping. I did, and I believe I will use everything in the package often.


  55. Smoking Awesome.

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2017

    Wow, what an awesome piece of culinary mastery. I got it a little over a week ago and we have had friends and family over almost every night. From bacon wraped elk burger to pizza and pork lion. This thing is bomb. The remote thermometer could be better, doesn't seem to work all the time and has a huge temperature swing compared to the digital read out on the RecTec. Juat waiting for the rest of my backordered items to show.


  56. Having Fun

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2017

    I've had my 680 for about 2 1/2 weeks and am very happy with it. I've already used it about a dozen times and everything I've smoked has turned our great. Looks like I'll be cooking dinner 4-5 nights a week.


  57. Best fathers day gift ever

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    This was delivered on a day that I had to leave for out of town for an entire week. It was a total surprise gift from my wife and two daughters for a Father's Day gift. The good thing is o Aud a whole week to research and watch videos on assembley and things too cool. Probably what my wife intended. Man is she lucky, I have been cooking almost everyday and everything on it. Coming from a family of foreign decent we had my mom and dad over for what my mother calls it a "Biscuit". I have made many in the past but the BRISKET kicked ass. Thanks for providing a great product.


  58. Couldn't Be Happier

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    Lovin' the Rec Tec lifestyle. In two weeks I've done steaks, chicken, 9 racks of ribs, two butts, a pizza and a brisket. I've nicknamed it "The Machine." From the accessories to the rubs and sauces, everything is top notch. My sales guy Ashley Brown was fantastic, customer service is great, assembly was a breeze, but nothing was as easy as making great tasting food for my friends and family. I own a Webber gas grill and a Big Green Egg, and they've both been demoted. My only regret is how long it took me to pull the trigger.


  59. First time pellet griller

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    I have always used gas grills because you can start them up really easy, bring them up to temp and grill pretty quick. I started doing some research when my last gas grill rusted out and it was time to replace. After months of comparison research I decided I wanted the Rec Tec. After another month I had talked the wife into spending the money for the "Kitchen sink" package! It arrived a week or so later, palletized, wrapped and protected very well. It assembles very easily with some basic hand tools. After seasoning by cooking a couple pounds of bacon, I decided to grill some boneless, skinless chicken breasts. A staple of mine being the unskilled gas griller that I am! After cooking and plating the chicken I cut into one of the breasts and was shocked by all the juice running out! My first thought was oh my God, this isn't done! To my surprise it was done...perfectly! Since then I have cooked, fish, burgers, pork tenderloin, hotdogs, more chicken and steaks! I can't tell you how much juicer and tastier the food is, I even baked pizza in the Rec Tec! The Rec Tec has changed me from being a simple burger and dog back yard griller and inspired me to create dishes my family get excited to eat! Its so easy to use and it looks cool too! If you're on the fence about purchasing a Rec Tec, just do it, you will love it!


  60. Wow Best Smoker/Grill I have owned

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    I've had Webber's, a custom smoker on a trailer and everything in between, this is hands down the best. I smoked brisket in the REC TEC for the first time for 40 people, my guest said it was AMAZING, FANTASTIC, BEST THEY HAD EVERY EATEN.


  61. Wow

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2017

    WOW WOW WOW!!!!! I COOK AT LEAST 4 MEALS A WEEK ON THE REC TEC. THANKS GUYS... WHAT AN AWESOME PRODUCT!


  62. Very constant temperature

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2017

    I have friends and family with less expensive pellet grills and the RECTEC pellet grill my friend is the only way to go. You will not be disappointed.


  63. What Injury?

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2017

    Had a recent accident before my Rec Tec arrived. Torn hamstring and shoulder. Couldn't stand the idea of my Rec Tec sitting on a pallet in my garage any longer. When my wife went shopping for the afternoon, I went to the garage and assembled it! Done.......(I wouldn't recommend others attempt that with such injuries, but I couldn't resist)..
    The result? The most tasty and juicy meals ever!
    The quality and accuracy of this grill is unmatched -- and I've had em all!
    Thank You Rec Tec Team!


  64. Best money spent.

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2017

    I really like my REC-TEC it cooks great and do not have to watch it. It take care of the cookin' and I take care of the eatin'.


  65. Excellent Product - some improvements could be made still

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2017

    This is one really exceptional grill/smoker. It is extremely easy to use and takes the stress out of cooking. I've already cooked ribs, bacon, bratwurst, hamburgers, pork shoulders, pork tenderloin, steak, ribs, veggies, smoked mac n cheese, smoked baked beans, and swordfish on it. I've been impressed with everything that comes off of there.

    The remote temperature probes that come with this package deal make it easy to set it and forget it until the alarm goes off. I did an 18hr smoke on a pork shoulder and only checked it 4 times during the process just because i was curious.

    The instant temperature probe is very fast and very accurate. I don't know how i've been grilling without one for so long. I use it on all my cooks now.

    The sauces and seasoning/rubs that come with it are all delicious but could use some better instruction on what they are best on. Definitely sample them before using them. It's easy to use too much.

    The cold smoker and cover haven't arrived yet for me to review those.

    The large quantity of pellets is nice and will keep me cooking for a while. I would guess on average i'm burning a pound of pellets per hour. I haven't tasted other brand pellets to compare but they both give good flavor. That hopper is massive and a huge benefit to the grill/smoker.

    The extreme smoke tube isn't easy to initially get lit but man does that thing smoke once you get it going. I would guess it smokes heavily for 3-4 hours.

    The grill itself is really well made. It holds heat in really well but it has some bad air leaks around the door. It's easy to solve but something you wouldn't expect to have to solve on your own. The light on the inside is a nice touch. The control panel is super easy to use. It takes a little while to initially heat up but not long enough to be bothersome.

    The second shelf is really handy if you are cooking large quantities of food but it takes a ton of food to fill that thing up.

    The front shelf is a little low, as is the whole grill/smoker. But it's heavy and I understand it's important to keep the center of gravity low.

    Now for my gripe on the RecTec - the packaging that the hardware came in was an absolute nightmare. Even with scissors it was hard to get into. And the bolts are difficult to get started because of how short they are for the legs. They could use another 1/2" of threads to make the assembly easier. The hardware is really good quality though. Aside from that - assembly was straight forward. It's an easy thing to fix and I really hope they do for future orders. I also hated to see that they chose to not manufacturer in the US. I'd love to see them change that.

    All in all - i'm stoked with my purchase and it's worth the money. Don't get the little one - go all the way and get the large package. You won't regret it! I was worried about the price of it all until i received it and cooked on it. Stop reading and go get one.


  66. MAD!!!!!!

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2017

    I am MAD that I did not buy this 6 months ago when my buddy bought his. Everything we have made on the grill has been spot on. It is SOOOO easy to use even the wife is using it when I'm out of town. Not a bad word to be said.....


  67. Very happy buyer

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2017

    Received the kitchen sink and put the grill to use. Delivery was good and set up of grill went OK. Very heavy unit and very well built. Have been receiving back ordered items and think I have about everything. Like it a lot. My research told me this was the best grill to buy and now I know so.


  68. Best Pellet grill

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2017

    I have had the RT-680 for a little over a month and I love it. I was initially hesitant to purchase it since I was not able to see it in person before hand and I looked at many other brands and the quality just wasn't what I was expecting for the price. I sent an inquiry and they responded in a timely manner and insured me that if it was not the quality that I was expecting, they would make it right. I ordered the Kitchen Sink with the cold smoker. I received it a week after my order was placed. I set it up right away and it took me about an hour by myself before I had it on and completing the burn in. I have used it for everything from ribs, pork loin, steaks, pulled pork, turkey, wings, veggies, potatoes. It has never disappointed me. I love everything about it. I can not wait to use it more.


  69. built like a tank

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    My Rectec is built to last! The stainless steel provides for a lasting grilling experience like no other.
    It's versatility is like no other grill on the market.


  70. can't make a bad mesl

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    Inaugural steak grilled...Kobe beef and smoked salmon. Melt in your Mouth! Next day, ground steak hambugers...again, melt in your mouth and lots of flavor. Outstanding!


  71. Loving it so far...

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2017

    It took about two weeks to get delivered to the west coast and I'm still waiting on a couple back-ordered items but I am loving how easy it is to BBQ like a pro. I've only used it a few times now but it works great and the food comes out delicious!


  72. Good Product

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2017

    Well built. Price point is competitive. Competes well with much more expensive pellet grills. Fit and finish is high quality. I am waiting for my shelf as it was on back order, but still a great product.


  73. BEST SMOKER THERE IS......

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2017

    BRINGS SMOKING MEATS TO THE 21ST CENTURY. TOOK A TASK THAT WAS VERY TIME COMSUMING AND MADE IT EASY. MAKES THE BEST BEEF RIBS YOU WILL EVER EAT


  74. Research led me to believe this grill was the best one on the market, Experience with this grill proved I was right!

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2017

    Research led me to believe this grill was the best one on the market, Experience with this grill proved I was right! Absolutely love this grill. My first grill was a 14 hour overnight pork shoulder that was amazing. Next grill was reverse seared steaks that were unbelievable.
    A few suggestions: Packaging for the nuts and bolts was difficult to open, the long bolts needed to be 1/8th inch longer for easier threading and the instructions could have been better (although the video was great help).
    If you are looking to become a pellet head ..... you will NOT be disappointed with this grill.


  75. The Best

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2017

    I like to cook for a hobby, I have a Big Green Egg but it is just to hard to use. I can do this by my self without help from my husband. Love the flavor of everything I have cooked so far.


  76. OUTDOOR COOKING IS NO LONGER A CHORE!

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    Absolutely top quality from the product to the service along with video's and recipe's makes this purchase seem to good to be true. But it is and more. I have only had three cooks with baby back and St. Louis Style Ribs and a whole chicken. All were tender and juicy and enhanced with well balanced Rec Tec Seasonings and BBQ sauce. The ease of preparing the meat and cooking plus cleaning the grill afterwords makes this senior citizen a happy camper. I also recommend the bundled package and the pellet blends are excellent.


  77. 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


  78. 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.



  79. 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!


  80. 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.


  81. 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.


  82. 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.


  83. 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!


  84. 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.


  85. 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


  86. 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.


  87. 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!!


  88. 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.


  89. 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!!!!!!


  90. 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.


  91. 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.


  92. 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.

    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 !!!!

  96. You won't regret this purchase

    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!


  97. Fantastic product

    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.


  98. 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.


  99. 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!!


  100. 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!!
