  1. off to a good start

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2017

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


  2. No Joke

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2017

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


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

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    I will review after the first grilling


  4. Amazing!!

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

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


  5. Buy one

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

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


  6. awesome

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2017

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


  7. Just Getting Started

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2017

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


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

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2017

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


  9. 5 Star Smoket. It does not get better than this.

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2017

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


  10. Very surprised

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2017

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


  11. constructive criticism very happy

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2017

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

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


  12. Get the whole sink package

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2017

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


  13. this grill is amazing

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2017

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


  14. You won't be dissappointed

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2017

    Great customer service along with a superior product.


  15. Smokin like a Champ

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2017

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


  16. i Love It! Best Grill!

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2017

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


  17. The Best Evere

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2017

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


  18. top of the line

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2017

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


  19. Fantastic grill and great service!

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2017

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


  20. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2017

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


  21. The Grill i Had Too Have !!!

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2017

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


  22. Best choice I've made

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2017

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


  23. Brother's Birthday Present

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2017

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


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

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2017

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


  25. Nothing but the Best

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2017

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


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

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2017

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


  27. Love it

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2017

    We are still learning, but love this grill


  28. WOW what a bundle

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2017

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

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

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2017

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


  32. WOW

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2017

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

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

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

  34. Excellent Grill and Customer Service

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

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

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

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




  35. Love My Rec Tec 680

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

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


  36. Many more great meals to come!

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2017

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


  37. nice looking grill

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2017

    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.


  38. New passion

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2017

    Wow best food ever. New to smoking can't imagine a better way to start. This smoker makes it very easy


  39. FLAVOR - CHECK

    Posted by 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!!!


  40. AWESOME!!

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2017

    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.


  41. I was Wrong

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2017

    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.


  42. Hot

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

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


  43. Pure Awesomeness

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2017

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


  44. Solid as a Rock!

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2016

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


  45. I Can Do This....

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2016

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

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

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


  46. My search for excellence

    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.


  47. Satisfied in Texas

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2016

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


  48. A no brainer

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

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


  49. Awesome product

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2016

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


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

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2016

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


  51. Amazing

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2016

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

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

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

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


  52. Wish I had done this one first

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

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


  53. This is the only way to grill

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

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


  54. Great grill

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

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


  55. My first smoker

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2016

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


  56. As good as advertised, maybe even better!

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

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


  57. Awesome Grill

    Posted by 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.


  58. Great Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 22nd Nov 2016

    Love the Grill and accessories. Awesome product that makes great food.


  59. Best decision I made !

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2016

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


  60. Works perfectly

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2016

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


  61. Glad I came across this pellet smoke/grill

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2016

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


  62. Best for the money!!!

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

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


  63. Super Smoker

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

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

  65. Amazing Ribs

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2016

    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.


  66. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

    Posted by 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


  67. Everything I expected and so much more

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2016

    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


  68. FANTASTIC

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2016

    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 "


  69. Outstanding Grill/Smoker

    Posted by 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.


  70. 680 with kitchen sink bundle

    Posted by 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!


  71. My honest review of my experience with rec tec

    Posted by 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.


  72. So happy!

    Posted by on 27th Oct 2016

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


  73. Great Balls of Fire - Best Grill Ever!

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2016

    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!


  74. This thing is frickin awesome!!

    Posted by 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!!!


  75. Good Product Great Customer Service Questionable Delivery

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2016

    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.





  76. OK there is something you read on the internet nthat really is true

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2016

    !)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


  77. Love my REC TEC

    Posted by 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.


  78. AMAZING!!!

    Posted by 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!!


  79. Best Pellet Smoker on the Market

    Posted by 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.


  80. Awesome

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2016

    Absolutely love my rec tec, made a sirloin tip roast today


  81. Don't buy this if you like crappy food

    Posted by 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!!!


  82. SMOKIN!

    Posted by 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


  83. Rec Tec Black Edition

    Posted by 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!


  84. Awesome Product

    Posted by 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.


  85. Awesome Product!

    Posted by 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.


  86. Amazing grill

    Posted by 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.


  87. Still VERY Happy after 2 years.

    Posted by 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.


  88. Top Notch

    Posted by 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


  89. Smoking Good Times

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2016

    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


  90. AWESOME!!

    Posted by 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.


  91. Excellent Grill

    Posted by 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!


  92. Well made

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

    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.


  93. Off grid smoking

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2016

    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.


  94. Performs as described

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2016

    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!!!


  95. Husband is smoking and grilling every night!

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2016

    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!


  96. Outstanding product

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2016

    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!


  97. The best place to start

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2016

    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!


  98. Great experience for a rookie smoker

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2016

    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.

  100. Couldn't be happier!

    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!
