  1. BEST THERE IS!!!!!!

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2017

    My first (and last) pellet grille!!! Amazing cookery!!!

  2. Best of Everything In One Package

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2017

    I can’t say enough about RecTec the company and my RT680 grill! This package came with everything BUT the meat! I’ve already cooked several different meats on it and they have all turned out amazing! Thanks guys for putting “service” back where it brings, on the cutomer. YOU GUYS FREAKING ROCK!

  3. love my rec tec 680

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2017

    I have cooked a variety of meats and they have all turned out great.
    I have done 3 14 hour cooks and it held the temperature the whole time.

  4. Love the RECTEC!

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2017

    I’ve had my RECTEC 680 for a little over two weeks and have had a chance to cook beef , pork, and turkey so far...I love this grill, my only regret is that I didn’t get one a long time ago! As I write this review I’m making some smoked ribs and beans at the same time. After cooking the Thanksgiving Turkey on it, I carved the bird and put the rest of the uncarved turkey back in the RECTEC for 3 hours at 180 degrees, stripped the smoked turkey off the carcass... it was the best leftover turkey I’ve ever had. This thing is awesome!

  5. super

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2017

    used once and after folks got a taste of the meat I have been using it non stop. Hams, turkeys, tri tips, etc. folks have put in there request for Christmas already. Love this grill

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2017

    best ever

  7. easiest smoker ever!

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2017

    Got my smoker right before thanksgiving. I had a few questions on different days, one on turkey day. Rec tech called me back on thanksgiving wishing 10 mins and answered my question. They next time I used messenger the day after and they answered me back within 10 mins. The rec tec group is like a family. The customer service is top notch. The smoker is sooooo easy to use. It’s like cheating. The construction is good to go! I will be a member of the rec tec family for a long time! Thank you rec tec!

  8. The envy of the neighborhood

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2017

    What can I say? This thing is a beast! Aside from the awesome looks, it cooks great! My neighbors all want to get a look at it. They are all jealous!

  9. I Love this Wood Pellet Grill! RT-680

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2017

    The design and quality of this grill is amazing. The food I can produce is excellent. The seasoning that came with the kitchen sink package are extremely tasty. I know I will be cooking on this grill for many years. I will cook a variety of meats on it all at once, timing them separate and removing them when done. Food for the week or food for the neighbors. Thank you Rec Tec People for putting out an awesome cooking tool.

  10. RT680

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2017

    Food has never been this flavorful! I'm grilling stuff I never would have trusted on any other grill before, such as nachos. I knew my skills were good and now becoming great thanks to Rectec. Thanksgiving was about 25% the effort this year and at least 200% increase in all food quality. Customer service is second to none. I had a question early Thanksgiving morning and instant messaged Rectec, not expecting a response due to the holiday. They responded back within 6 minutes and gave me the tips I needed. Thank you all at Rectec!!

  12. Rec Tech 680

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    I reviewed smokers for 9 months before finally deciding to purchase the 680 with Kitchen sink. I am not disappointed so far. Nicely built smoker.

  13. Best smoker ever

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2017

    I do not work for Rec Tec. I reviewed ALL different kinds of smokers for 3 years and finally made a decision to go with the Rec Tec kitchen sink bundle.
    This is the BEST decision (besides getting married and having kids) that I have even made. If your looking for a smoker, STOP looking around and get a Rec Tec. The product is well built, easy to put together (with some beers) and customer service, I can't say enough, THE BEST.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. the best

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2017

    This is the best purchase by far! From smoking to grilling we are in love with our RecTec! Great smoke and evenly grilled juicy chicken! We are new to smoking but are rocking the Rec Tec we are not disappointed at all!

  15. great grill

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2017

    Awesome smoker! Kitchen sink bundle was great! Assembly was good, grill fired right up! Only bad part was the grill cover tore the first time I took it off. It caught on side of sharp end

  16. Badass Pellet grill

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2017

    I researched for months and finally chose Rec Tec best grill I’ve ever owned built well. Customer service is great. Only a month into learning this pellet gig but is so easy my wife actually smoked a brisket.

    This grill met all of my expectations. It performs perfectly and is made like a tank.

    Best Grill Ever

  21. Totally Awesome

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    The Rec Tec does everything except eat the meals for you. I love it. I would have rated it 6 stars had I received the cover with the grill. It is back ordered until December.

  22. love it

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    Great!! Love it

  23. Best Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 5th Nov 2017

    Received my RT680 a few weeks ago and after the initial setup and start, began cooking. Wow! What a grill. Everything, I mean everything I cooked, (steaks, chicken, turkey, fish, vegetables, etc.) turn out perfect. The quality construction of the grill is superb. The temperature holds, and the smoke it produces is fantastic. Called Rec Tech on a question and they were very helpful. Great service.! I would recommend this grill to anyone.

  24. RecTec 680 bundle

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2017

    I got the "everything except kitchen sink" bundle and am very pleased with it. The smoker is extremely well built. the 40 pound pellet hopper is fabulous. So far, the smoker has exceeded my expectations. During my initial burn in seasoning, I did notice a lot of smoke coming around the doors of the main body and the smoke box addition. I purchased a roll if high temp gasket tape and applied to both doors and solved that problem.
    Rec Tec service techs are the best. I called about the wireless temp probe not showing the same as the smoker controller and was answered promptly, no wait time at all. Working with the entire team from ordering to delivery was most pleasant.
    This is one HIGHLY RECOMMEMDED pellet smoker, the RecTec 680!!!

  25. the best

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2017

    We love this grill. I have owned several grills and smokers over the years. This is pur first pellet grill though. It is so solid and well made, that I think it will be pur last. From smoking turkey, or tenderloin, to just doing burgers, everything comes put perfect. It is efficient at holding the temperature and the meat probes are very helpful. Great rubs are included also. One of the best things about this purchase are the employees and owners of Rectec. When you call with questions or concerns, it is like talking with family. They are very friendly and they know smoking. Thanks to you all.

  26. AWSOME

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2017

    Have had it for about three weeks and have cooked on it just about every day... The temp control is perfect... Love it.. Highly recommend it

  27. Very pleased!

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2017

    After smoking 8 racks of ribs, both St. Louis cut and spareribs, 2 pork tenderloins, some burgers and a few other recipes, I'm now a complete convert to this type of cooking. The grill is very solid and thoughtfully designed, making it easy to use, even for a new convert. The smoke flavor is wonderful with no artificial flavor or carcinogens -- all natural. Now it's time to smoke some chickens, and maybe even a Thanksgiving turkey. The prospects are unlimited . . .

  28. Makes cooking outdoors easy

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2017

    I'm very impressed with the fit and finish on the Rec Tec. I've owned it for 3 weeks now, and everything I've made has been super moist and tasty. My only suggestions would be to beef up the wheels a little more for rolling on uneven ground. And the bull-ring is a great looking idea, but as soon as you put on the optional front shelf, it is hidden and useless. A bracket should be already on the front of the shelf so the owner would simply move it to the front.

  29. I am blown away

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    After reviewing the top grill that I heard great things about including rectec, treager, and camp chief. And actually going and looking at them. The Rectec won hands down. Better built, better warranty, holds more pellets and to mention the pellets are a better price. Before the purchase I called and spoke with Casey. He spent a lot of time answering all my questions and then handled the purchase process. Oh and I should mention he did it on his own time from home. That’s customer service. Now I’ve cooked brisket, chicken, steak, burgers and they turned out great. I invited my neighbors to try and they were very impressed, even cooked a brisket for them. So if your looking to purchase a grill call them and talk, ask all the hard questions. A very good investment.

  30. Best grill /smoker I ever owned

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    I love this grill I thought I would use it occasionally on the weekends but it's so easy I use it throughout the week. The food cooks perfectly and either smoking or grilling it adds a great but not overwhelming flavor. If you want to create good food everyone loves and without it consuming all your time get this grill!!!!

  31. amazing product

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    Fantastic and easy to use. Everything from sausages to pork to brisket all have turned out perfect. No other grill or smoker even comes close.

  32. the super grill

    Posted by on 18th Oct 2017

    Everything is just top notch. We had an issue with bolts beeing too short when my husband put it together. Calles customer service and next day we had longer bolts. Fantastic customer service!

  33. Pellet Novice

    Posted by on 17th Oct 2017

    I have two friends who bought Rec Tecs and both loved them. One said she called the "customer service" telephone number on Christmas and received a call back!! I've used it once on a brisket in the two weeks I've owned it and it turned out perfect. A turkey will be next. We used the Rec Tec Honey Rub and the mild sauce last Saturday on a friend's Rec Tec and was impressed. All in all this BBQ is great and I'm glad I spent the extra money.

  34. Impressive!!

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2017

    Bought this after a friend got one. Read many reviews and made a good choice. Its got sex appeal and impressive cooking results. Super Stoked!!!!

  35. Awsome - Just Awsome!!!

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2017

    This is an amazing grill! I bought this for my husband as a gift to honor a successful kidney transplant. I (the wife) was his kidney donor. He was like a new man after the surgery and had a life to him I haven't seen for years. I did much research to find the best one out there on the market. We plan on many meals to come with family and friends.
    There was a slight problem with shipping but ended up ok in the end. ( you can call if you are concerned with what it was) But other than that - awesome - just awesome.

  36. Awesome product, even better results ( the food)!

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2017

    Well made, great functional product. stays right on temperatures selected. heats up fast and easy to clean (using foil on drip pan). I am enjoying the results of wonderful food most of all.

  37. Love my Grill!

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2017

    I bought this grill after months of researching and I am so glad I found others' reviews so persuasive because I would not have been as happy with anything else. For the money, this is the best value on the market hands-down. I have done so many different things with it already and every single thing has been the best I have ever had off of this grill. I have been able to show this thing off to so many people, I am sure I should be a salesman for Rec Tec or earning commission by now. I was impressed by the lack of negative reviews on Amazon, the quality of parts, the fact that the owners give out their cell #'s, etc. And it looks awesome with the bull horns! I work for a company that sells Traegers and they are better than gas, but nothing close to my grill at home. It was an investment to buy, but I see this as the last grill I will ever buy. Thanks Rec Tec.

  38. Having Fun Fun Fun!!!!

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2017

    Great product! People think that I'm some kind of smoker wizard this grill is making me look good. One piece of advice put the 2 bolts for the attached front shelf with all the other bolts! Da!


    Posted by on 9th Oct 2017

    Did my research and ordered the RT- 680 Kitchen Sink Bundle. Always grilled on a gas grill, but wanted to upgrade to a wood pellet grill/smoker. Ever since unpacking and assembling my RT-680, the gas grill has been mothballed. I've had my Rec Tec for just three weeks and have grilled/smoked chicken, brisket, wings, ham, fish, steaks and everything comes out perfect every time!! Definitely the BEST money I've ever spent.

  40. WOW, 225 degrees on the button for 15 hours. Finally!!!!

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2017

    I must say I was a little reluctant to spend this much money on a smoker. I am glad I did and I would spend it again. My first cook was a pulled pork 12 pounds set at 225 degrees for 18 hours. I had so much fun because I was able to socialize with friends. I was able to sleep and not have to worry about the smoker either burning itself out or getting too high of a temp. I left it at 11 at night, came back 6 hours later and it was still 225° on the button. I don't think there's another smoker that's going to compete with the Rec Tec.

    The construction was also extremely impressive for this Grill. It is built to last a lifetime. I am definitely glad I am now a member of the Rec Tec family.

  41. simply awesome

    Posted by on 4th Oct 2017

    Amazing company and product. Shipping was fast. Assembly was easy. Operation is simple and straight forward. Have smoked a Boston butt, steak, chicken, and veggies so far. All have been amazing. Customer service is amazing. Was contacted 10 min after placing order to thank me, invited to visit when I am back in the area, and even received a response to a very old Facebook chain that I commented on. If you are debating on this system go ahead and take the bull by the horns and do it. You won't regret it.

  42. Da BOMB!

    Posted by on 4th Oct 2017

    I can't say enough about my grill. I have had it for 3 weeks and have done about 5 meals on it with amazing success. I love all the videos on YouTube for different ideas and tutorials. I did a ton of research before I bought this unit and I really think that I made the right choice. Called customer service for questions before I bought and they called me right back. So far, so good in my book. The freezer is packed with meat and ready for grilling!
    My only recommendation is, when you add the front shelf, the screws need to be about another 1/8" longer. I had to forgo putting on the recommended washers to get the bolt to thread. No big deal, all worked out, but it would make assembly a little easier. Thanks REC TEK!

  43. Love'n it

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2017

    Greatest thing since sliced bread. They are not kidding when they say it will turn a backyard enthusiast into a pit master. The Rub's are amazing . great flavors for everyone from heat to sweet.

  44. So Fun!

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2017

    I am a CPA and do not know much about grilling. I know no one with a pellet grill. I just turned fifty last month and instead of buying a motorcycle I bought a grill. This has opened up a whole new interest to me. I bought the Kitchen sink bundle. It arrived as planned. Was fun to set up. I started watching YouTube video's on how to cook things. I have made Jerky, two Briskets (I had no idea what a brisket even was), baked salmon, smoked salmon, Chicken, Have not yet made burgers or steaks. I am so, so happy with it. I wish Rec Tec included a for sure cook book. This is something that is interactive an fun. I absolutely love it. I think about it all the time. It brings me into things that I do not know anything about and now I might be someone to talk to.... BTW...I ordered the mini and then changed my mind to the 680 and then
    Rec Tec took care of everything. Sorry Rec Tec, but I am so happy that I changed.

    Love It!

  45. Best all around Pellet Smoker on the market

    Posted by on 26th Sep 2017

    Just want to thank the guys at Rec Tec for their incredible and well made Pellet Smoker. My Rec Tec far exceeded my expectations upon delivery. Very well built and should give myself and my family many years of cooking bliss. Ordering was easy and customer service is outstanding. We tried your easy peasy lasagna recipe last Saturday and by far was the best lasagna and garlic bread we ever had all thanks to our Rec Tec. Sold my traditional wood smoker and my electric smoker immediately because our Rec Tec takes the place of everything. I look forward to every weekend now as all I want to is use the Pellet smoker.

  46. Wow, why did I ever smoke meat with anything else

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2017

    What an amazing grill, I can't stop buying meat to smoke. I've smoked with stick, puck, electric, and Komodo smokers and the Rec Tec beats them all for smoke penetration, bark, tenderness and moisture. This is the first smoker I've had that doesn't need the half way through foil wrap. Awesome smoking, if not done steaks yet, can't stop smoking, I have make breakfast biscuits a couple times, they come out very evenly cooked. I did have a couple bumps with the delivery of the Grill but a very simple non-confrontational very helpful phone call corrected both issues in a matter of just a few days. So far this grill is worth every penny, I expect that it will be for years to come when I compare to the construction of other pellet grills. I'm glad I didn't fall for buying one of those other grills that a are relying on their brand name to sell you a grill.

  47. first pellet snoker

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    Very impressed with the packing, overall quality and craftman ship of the rectec grill. I have only cooked a few proteins at this time and everyone has far exceeded my expectations. Meat is extremely moist, tender and full of flavor. I would have given the grill 5 stars but the SS bolts were cut to short and we're not usable and there is a 1/4 gap on the lid when closed. I am going to adjust the lid tonight and see if I can minimize the gap. Other than that top notch system, grates, fire pot and I love the searing plates. If your considering a pellet smoker buy a Rectec. I highly recommend over its competitors.

  48. LOVE THIS GRILL!!!!!

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    My husband decided he wanted a pellet grill. I decided to research pellet grills on the web. Although it was more costly, after reading the reviews and watching the videos, we decided that this one was the one. The 6 year warranty also put the teeth in our decision. If they were willing to back up the product that long, it must be made the way they said. We ordered the "Kitchen sink." My husband who is very critical looked like a kid at Christmas! He received it on a Friday evening, and smoked 170 pounds of summer sausage on it that weekend. He was happy with everything about the grill. He loves the grill!!! I'm sure I will too if I ever get to use it. Very happy we made this purchase!

  49. Yet to be disappointed

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    I was 100% skeptical about pellet smokers/grills... I'm going to spare a lengthy read and just say I did my research and ultimately made a decision from a group of Big name pellet grills... My Rec Tec Grill 680 is among my top prized possessions and has yet to disappoint myself or my guests I've cooked for... Excellent machine!!

  50. I made the right choice

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2017

    I am not a regular reviewer. Actually I never review any of my purchases. So here is my first. I have wanted a smoker for years. I have done the Cabelas and Gander Mountain thing including Home Depot and Fleet Farm. I have spent the last 35 years working at a company that has been fabricating stainless steel products. I found Rec Tec on the internet and reviewed their specifications and finally found the smoker that I would dish out the cash for. Rec Tec is the real deal. I really enjoy cooking on it and will always be my goto cooker / smoker.

  51. best grill ever created!

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2017

    I own all types of grills and cook with everything from wood,lump,charcoal and pellets, when I first used my 680 I couldn't believe how simple it was to start and control the temp, I cooked ribs and brisket on first cook. Only filled hopper with about 20lb of pellets and cooked for 14 hours without a glitch or babysitting. Food was fantastic and had the nice smoke ring I was hoping for. I'm definitely going to buy a second one just so I can use two instead of my stick burner. And customer service is fantastic! Would highly recommend to anyone.

  52. Forever converted from built-in gas grills

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2017

    I have been using the Rec Tec Grill now for about 3 months and this is by far the best grill I've ever used.
    I have always had built-in gas grills which end up with hot spots and uneven cooking. I have always wanted to try a pellet grill and when our new house did not have the built-in already I just took the plunge and bought the Kitchen Sink Bundle. I have been grilling meats that I would have never done on my gas grill and the results have been awesome!!! My first time ever doing pulled pork I did 15lbs overnight with minimal effort and excellent results.
    Only con so far is the light doesn't even need to be there, it was immediately covered in brown smoke color and doesn't put off much light. Hey Rec Tec, you could make a detachable light with flexible pole that could be used when needed and stored when not.

  53. purchase of RT680

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2017

    Recently purchased a RT680 and I have cooked a 18lb. brisket for ten people, three racks of baby back ribs. Also have cooked T Bone steaks and Rib eyes as well. I have tried a grilled pizza also and every time the food turnes out fantastic. People can't believe how great the food taste and how moist the meats are. I have been grilling on charcoal for a long time and this grill is the best investment i have ever made. The customer service has been wonderful as well.Kelly

  54. Set it and forget it

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2017

    The beauty of this grill is the technology. When I'm ready to cook a brisket, I turn the grill on, set it for 225, put the brisket on, and go to bed. The temp stays steady within a degree or two and I don't have to constantly monitor it. I have a Big Green Egg (which I love), but I haven't used it since the 680 arrived. Additionally, I should mention that I purchased this grill over the Traeger because of all of the positive reviews about the quality of materials used by RT. This is a solid grill and I have high expectations for the long life I expect from it - very impressed. I sprang for the Kitchen Sink Bundle and am glad I did (will use everything in it so I saved a great deal)! I've already recommended this grill to many of my friends. RT really does it right, great value, very pleased with my decision.

  55. Best Grill Ever!

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2017

    I purchased this as a gift for my husband and couldn't be happier. I did a ton of research from Treger to Memphis and for the quality and price we have no doubt this was the right choice. I was extremely apprehensive about the red color in our outdoor kitchen space but it is more muted than I expected. We have been using it for everything from pizza and meats to veggies. Love this grill and would do it again.

    We own the grill for a few weeks and have already roasted a whole pig, never having done that before. It was beyond delicious!!! We've also used the searing grates for the best burgers, steaks, and chicken breasts! Good-bye natural gas, HELLO REC TEK! Highly recommend!!

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    This thing is built like a tank ! I was truly surprised when I received the item , it was a lot heavier than I expected it be , but then again for the price you definitely get what you pay for with this grill . Received my 680 a week and half ago assembled the grill burnt it off and then proceeded to cook 80#'s of pork butts for a group of 200 people nothing left pork was fall off the bone and delicious. Got numerous questions on how I cooked them .i explained that I had purchased a new smoker and Cooked them low and slow on my new rec tec 680 .. Most of these people have had Bbq I have cooked on an open pit but they all said this was by far the best ever Bbq I had made ... thanks for the wonderful experience, hoping to create many more memorable moments with this smoker grill !!

  58. Great quality grill!

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    I love the grill it works great and the quality is great. I bought the kitchen sink set which is cheaper to buy it in the bundle rather than a piece at a time. I am not sure if everything that comes with it should really be as expensive as it is though. In all the grill is what I am really impressed with! Great product.

  59. A complete smoking, grilling, & baking experience.

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2017

    I did a lot of research/comparison between brands of pellet cookers. I feel the right choice was made when the trigger was finally pulled & the Rec Tec 680 "everything but the kitchen sink package" was ordered.
    Ordered on a Friday & got it the next Friday here in CA. 1 1/2 hours to assemble by myself, but you really should have a helper as you are advised to in the instruction manual.
    In the 2 weeks we've had it I can only complain about the country style ribs (learning curve lesson I cooked them 3-2-1 & that's too long).
    You can do anything an oven can do plus low & slow with smoke.

  60. Fantastic!

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    I bought trhe Rec Tec Kitchen sink bundle for my husband's birthday/Father's Day. Well, he hasn't touched it yet. I've been using it. I have gone through 5 bags if pellets already.

  61. Best pellet grill on the market

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    I have been trying to use a gas grill for 20 years but can't control the temp inside the grill...Finally I am able to do that with the rec tec.

  62. Did a bunch of research

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017

    The reviews and research were overwhelming, RecTec is becoming to foremost pellet grill on the market. Purchased the "Kitchen Sink Bundle" and saved over $800.00 when compared the "T brand" I was considering. Great quality of construction and components, and great grill flavor from the ultimate pellets...cooked up half fryers, it was the best chicken we have eaten, moist, tender, and just the right amount smokiness. I really appreciate the quality of the auger and temperature control...easy cooking with consistent great flavor.

  63. First try at pellet grill cooking is a home run!

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    Never tried pellet grill cooking but have to say I'm having fun with my new Rec Tec. Have a high end gas grill and a Kamoda grill and enjoy cooking with both. But the new REC TEC is rapidly moving to the top of my list for lots of my outdoor cooking.

  64. still learning

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    I've never owned a smoker before so I really have anything to do a comparison with. But I'm having fun learning how to use this there's definatly a learning curve. What I have made was spectacular , full of smokey flavor. I'm a true work in progress with this wonderful product. I feel with my new rec tek grill I'm going to be a master smoker in time.

  65. great product

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    In less than a month I cooked four butts for a family reunion, a brisket and a pizza on vacation. It performed well and the spices and all of accessories are also well made. I recommend the kitchen sink if you can afford it, I saved up to get it all at once with free shipping

  66. Top Notch pellet grill

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2017

    I have had the grill for a couple of weeks and love it. So easy to use and make consistently great food. With so many new recipes to try the hardest part is figuring out which ones to do first. Highly recommend!

  67. American Quality at it's Finest!

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2017

    Gone through 80lbs of pellets putting the Rec Tec 680 to the test. Did the short test, long test, all types cooking test; wife's so pleased she don't want to cook no more, she says my foods best!
    After thirty years the fires rekindled and the honeymoon stage is back on the plate!
    Thanks Rec-Tec things are going great!

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    The Rec Tec 680 is by far the best pellet smoker I have ever used. After having used the competitors Pro-34 for over a year, the RT680 leaves the competitors smoker in the dust. Not only that, the customer service at Rec Tec is exemplary. The overall construction is first class. The PID controller is spot on controlling temperature by 5 degree increments including re-establishing set temp extremely fast after opening lid. I’ve have now cooked on the RT680 for over a month and ever food product cooked has been awesome.

  69. Maybe the best grill I have owned

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2017

    Operated about 12 hrs. Used maybe 13 lbs of pellets. Every thing has come out great. Can't wait to try something new.

  70. Enjoying being part of the Rec Tec Family

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2017

    So fare I smoked some baby back ribs turned out great!!
    Tri-Tip I need to work on Fillets turned out great grilled pork chops and smoke some Italian sausage awesome. Working on learning how to use the rec tec but very pleased so far!!!

  71. Best Grill Ever!

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    At first I was a bit reluctant to make the purchase, given the cost, which was comparable to other brands on the market. And there was a bit of, "Oh boy, what did I just spend my money on?" Once I got the grill delivered and set-up, I smoked the following weekend and just WOW! Money well spent. BBQ Restaurant-quality meat. I smoked a brisket and a pork belly, using the Rec Tec spices. The food was devoured in no time at all. The ease of this grill is amazing. Load the 40 pounds of pellets, turn it on and set the temperature.... just place the meats where you want them and that's it! Waiting on my Cold Smoker box and I'll be adding square footage to the menu. Rec Tec truly does build a superior product, living in NY and putting out real southern bbq I've always enjoyed when visiting Oklahoma, Texas and Alabama, I couldn't be happier.

  72. Very Satisfied with my purchase.

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    I have owned my REC TEC 680 for two weeks and have used in 5 times in that period. Burgers, Mac N Cheese, Chicken, Sausage, & ribs, all came out great. Easy to assemble and easy to use.

    My family loves to hear me say that we're using the Rec Tec tonight for dinner. Everything has turned out great and the customer service was OUTSTANDING!

  74. I like all the extras that come in the Bundle.

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2017

    I mostly bought the bundle as I was looking at around $300.00 in shipping costs to CA. I figured I would rather pay a little more and get stuff for my money rather than simply pay for shipping. I would say there is nothing in the bundle that I am not glad to have purchased. The searing Kit, the cooking mats, meat probe, front shelf, top shelf, extra pellets, meat thermostat, meat probe, bottom mat for the smoker, and smoke tube (I LOVE this thing, as it adds lots of extra smoke flavor no matter the temperature), and spices. The question I kept asking myself is what would I not consider a MUST have to make my smoking experience great? After some consideration I think the only things that are not a must have is the cup holders and the T-shirt, I consider everything else necessary to a great smoking experience with my REC TEC. So my advice is do not spend money on shipping if you can afford the bundle, get features and tools to enhance your smoking experience.

  75. This grill lives up to everything i was hoping for.

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    The Rec Tec is made wonderfully well. Every thing I have cooked is infused with a rich smokey flavor. Easy to use, and simply the best customer service I have experienced (maybe ever). I am glad I went with the RecTec.

  76. 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.

  77. pleased with my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    Very pleased with my purchase of my Rec Tec 680 Grill

  78. 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

  79. 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!

  80. 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

  81. 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

  82. 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!

  83. 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.

  84. 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.

  85. 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.

  86. 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.

  87. 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.

  88. 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!

  89. 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.

  90. 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.

  91. 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.

  92. 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.

  93. 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.

  94. 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.

  95. 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!

  96. Quality

  97. 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!

  98. 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!

  99. Very Pleased

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Very happy with our new Rec Tec

    Highly Recommend to everyone

  100. 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!
