    I'm smoking pork ribs on my Rec Tec as I sit and write this review. I have been cooking for many years and I can tell you that this is hands down the best grill that I have ever owned! I now on my RT-680 for just under a month now and my family and I love everything that is made on it! I see many early morning days in the near future out on the deck with my Rec Tec smoking everything under the sun! CHEERS!

  2. up in smoke

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2017

    Easy to use sit back and wait great food every time no brainer

  3. Top of the Line Wood Pellet Smoker

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2017

    Extremely well built with very strong welds, heavy metal, high end electronics and reliable and accurate temperature control with huge wood pellets bin holding 40 pounds with well conceived auger. It is also attractive looking. It is nearly a flawless product.

  4. Best Pellet Smoker regardless of price

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2017

    Are you kidding me....? You just have to cook with it once to know the value of what you have. I did a lot of research on pellet smokers/grills looking for a dual purpose tool. I can grill at 500 degrees or smoke low and slow at 225 for 16 hours without having to empty the hopper. And if you haven't tried a reverse sere steak on a Rec Tec you're missing out. I use my Rec Tec year round with an Easy-Up over it in the winter, sides and all. I will continue to enjoy it for years to come. To top off the performance their customer service is second to none. If you're looking for the best grill/smoker you'll ever own put your faith in this one and these guys.

  5. Works well, holds temperature constant.

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2017

    I have used a pellet grill for about 12 years and recently upgraded to a Rec Tec. it is well-built and works quite well. I am surprised at how constant it holds the temperature. I like the enhanced smoke feature and use it all the time.
    The only item I have an issue with is the temperature measurement - it shows a lot higher than the temperature at the grill level. (When it reads 275, the grill level is 240 or less.) I have heard all the arguments for it, but I still set it higher to adjust for this and it's not a big deal. I rely on a remote thermometer.I like the 40# pellet hopper and the auger mechanism seems smooth and constant. I occasionally use an "smoke tube" to enhance the smoke volume and flavor. I like that the actual grill racks are two pieces - makes it easier to clean. I don't try to sear items in the Rec Tec but use an infrared gas grill, a torch or a frying pan.
    I sent an email to customer service about adjusting the pellet flow and Adam called me back in a short time to help. Needless to say, I'm happy with the customer service.

  7. Couldn't be happier, I'm back to grilling nightly

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2017

    I converted from a green egg and couldn't be happier that I did. I stopped enjoying the short cooks because it was time consuming and attention demanding, so I stopped grilling steaks, chicken, chops, and only performed large cooks over the weekend when I was free (rarely). My first day I put the rec tec together, performed the initial burn in, and cooked a steak for me and a chicken breast for my ladyfriend. Both turned out phenomenal and the experience couldn't have been easier. Set the temp, walk away. Put the meat on, walk away. Take the meat off, walk away (I did a couple quarter turns in there but that's just what you do on any grill).

    The build of the grill itself seems to be high quality. Assembly was quite easy for me, though lifting the finished product off the ground I could have used a little help if it was available. They may have their reasons for it, but one thing I wasn't a huge fan of during the assembly was phillips head bolts vs an easier hex head. The 90 degree driver they include did not have the proper bit size for the larger bolts, which made securing them difficult. I used my own driver when I could, but there are a few locations where you absolutely need the 90 degree. I'm not taking any 'stars' off because of this - like I said, they likely have their reasons and in the end my grill is solid.

    Finally, getting into customer service you hear everyone say theirs can't be beat. After working directly with Casey, I have no doubt this is true. He was quick to respond, worked with me after hours and on weekends, and helped with every question or request I had. I was teetering between a Yoder and a Rec Tec and I have to say that because of Casey I am a proud Rec Tec owner.

  8. Well Made and Easy to Use

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2017

    I know two people who have this smoker. Although they highly recommended it to me, I looked at many other smokers to compare. I decided on the Rec Tec and am very pleased with it. The construction is first quality and it is easy to use. I don't know which is correct but my remote grill thermometer says the grill is 25 degrees below what the grill thermometer reads out.

  9. So easy to have great smoked meats

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    Always wanted a pellet grill/smoker and looked at many locally and internet reviews. Was sold on the Rec-tec and after buying 100% happy. Best part is I don't have to tend my smoking project all day and I get great results. In first 3 weeks, I have done some of the best ribs, salmon, steak, pulled pork I have ever done with little or no effort.
    It's great. Easy to assemble as it is mostly built out of the box. It is heavy though. Took 3 grown men to get it on the back deck from the garage!
    Thanks Rec-Tec for a great product. A little more money than some of the local ones but after seeing it, it is twice the quality!

  10. Incredible grill!

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    I have never written a review on a product until now! I have had my REC TEC for almost a year now and I can honestly say that it is in a class by itself. I have cooked on other pellet smokers and expensive grills in the past, but have never had the versatility to cook everything on one unit. I have not used my gas grill since it arrived! Great service and a tremendous product that I would recommend to anyone!

  11. Meat Smoking Awesomeness!

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    I am impressed with the quality of the product , ease of assembly and use, awesome results, and responsive customer service! I have smoked whole chickens, salmon, beef briskets, and prime rib; everything turned out better than I could have imagined! I appreciated their proactive call about how the freight delivery would work.

  12. Best Grill/Smoker EVER

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2017

    Our uncle had a Rec Tec and swore by it. After attending a few cook outs at his home we decided it is worth the investment to add the Rec Tec to our backyard cook out area.
    It was delivered within a few days and the gentleman at Rec Tec responded immediately to any of our questions. Grill was really easy to assemble and it is beautiful. Already smoked our first 17 pound brisket to break it in and it was a hit! Don't hesitate due to price. Quality, 6 year guarantee and customer service are worth every dollar spent.

  13. A top og the line home grill.

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2017

    I cooked a prime rib roast on the new grill. I got the roast from a very local butcher (great cut), and I cooked the meat on a slow temperature. I used a spray mister with a sour mash base every 15-25 minutes. Cooked until the meat was 125% F. What a treat. This is my 2nd pellet grill. This one is the real deal.

  14. Very impressed this grill.

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    I received this grill/smoker after 30 years of being a Firefighter as a retirement gift. The very first cook was at my retirement party. I was a little apprehensive about smoking three 9lb. Prime rib roast for 40 people but they came out perfect. Its so simple to use and it was high end restaurant quality food.
    It's heavy duty and very well made.

  15. Stylish

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    This pit looks great and is built out of great products and more stainless than most other pellet cookers. The temperature control system is top notch. The horns for handles is a very nice touch and they are heavy duty. I'm excited to be able to use this pit for many years to come.

  16. Best possible choice in Smokers

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    Received the Rec Tec 680 on a very large pallet. It also contained all the 'goodies' including 200 lbs of pellets. The assembly instructions were very simple and straight forward. Most reviews were critical of the bolt length for the legs and how hard it was to put on the flat washer, lock washer and start the nut. They were absolutely RIGHT. After wrestling with the first one, I drove directly to the Fastenal store and purchased a bag of metric lock nuts. I used the flat washer and got rid of the lock washer and plain nut. It went together in a breeze after that. After construction, the unit is laying on it's side. It will take two people to stand it up on the wheels. It's made of 12 - 14 guage steel, so it's very heavy.

    The wife went to the store and bought our first smoking adventure, Baby Back Ribs. I used a portion of a recipe from the Rec Tec website and altered it a bit. What a delicious treat. We've also done steaks, baked some potatoes and salmon. Everything turned out perfect.

    This is one really great grille. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a smoking grille.

  17. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    This is the best grill. I've cooked more on it than any other grill I've ever owned. It's fantastic having a 40 pound pellet hopper. I've cooked low and high with great success.

    My only complaint is that I have a small chip above the left bull horn. Don't know why it chipped.

  18. Versatile Grill

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    I have been exteremely pleased with the purchase of my Rec Tec RT680. My grilling skills have improved and my family appreciates the results. Don't think I would ever go back to propane after experiencing the flavor difference.

  19. Look out Traeger

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    I was a nervous wreck once I decided to let go my Traeger of 7 years and venture out to Rec Tec land. Let's just say the 680 is every bit the equal of my Traeger elite and then some. It all started right after putting it together, when I didn't notice the auger moving, I dialed customer service and was shocked by a person answering. He easily walked me through a couple of steps and I have been turning out works of art to some degree surpassing the predecessor. The extra bin space comes in handy and my friends continually comment on just how nice the grill looks. Speaking of looks, look out Traeger, there is a Red bull coming fast.

  20. New to Pellet Grills

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    I used a conventional wood-box smoker for years and had some awesome results! It was always a huge effort to maintain the low temp over the long hours necessary for a large brisket. After a lot of research, I ended up with a Rec Tec 680. After first use, I am a convert! My first brisket was largely consumed on Labor Day with great reviews. It'll be a short learning curve, I believe. I can't wait to try some steaks. And I got a full night's sleep while my brisket was smoking on 225!

  21. Grilling and smoking made easy

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    I have really enjoyed my rec tec.
    No flare ups on my burgers, steaks come out like they were cooked by a 5 star chef.
    Brisket and ribs are as easy as can be. Still working on pork shoulders for pulled pork. But I just have to find the combination of amount of time and temperature. That just gives me some more time to enjoy cooking for the family!!
    This grill is great!!!!!!

  22. So much better than Traeger!

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    I had a Traeger select elite from Costco - made the mistake of believing the sales guy about what it could do. Returned it a month later after endless problems - maxed out under 400f and couldn't hold temperature. Bought the Rec Tec to replace it, and it has been awesome. Heats up quickly, get over 500f for a great sear on steaks using grillgrates, and holds temperature accurately for long smokes. On the first day I set it up I thought the auger wasn't working properly, so I called customer service - it was closed (6pm PST). Everything worked fine so I didn't call again, but Rec Tec called me first thing the next day to make sure everything was ok (I didn't even leave a voicemail). Great customer care.
    So glad I made the switch, and I'm now a believer in the versatility of pellet grills.

  23. The wife was truely right this time

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    Absolutely love the Rec Tec 680, I have been cooking on it 3-4 times a week since it has arrived rain or shine. I was against a pellet grill from the beginning. I have other smokers and grill's and wanted a custom gas burner/ smoker all in one setup custom made. We placed the order to have one made long story short we pulled out of that deal due to an unreliable company and placed an order with Rec Tec Industries. I am extremely happy with my purchase and happy to be apart of the Rec Tec family.

  24. Great Customer Service

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    I had an issue with my grill not holding temperatures. I called customer service and they shipped me new parts the next day free of charge. I installed and the grill is working as new. Thanks rec rec for the excellent customer service!

  25. A Class Above!!!!

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    I did quite a bit of comparison shopping for wood pellet grills, on the internet, and read so many reviews for different grills. I owned a Traeger Junior Elite, so I was familiar with these grills and how they worked. I also talked to the RecTec staff. I saw the video comparing the build of the RecTec and the Traeger, and that is what finally sold me on the RecTec.

    Many of the reviews on this page talk about how well the RecTec cooks, but if you are trying to decide then let the quality issue be your deciding factor. This grill is heads and shoulders above other grills you will see. Start with the fact that the grill is made of a heavier guage steel and that the key parts, such as the bolts and grill are stainless. The temperature controller is ultra precise. The hopper holds 40lbs of pellets. Think of a Mercedes when you think of the RecTec. My Traeger was wonderful, and I miss the little guy. But his temperature bounced up and down due to a lack of precision, and his grill was hard to clean because it was not a stainless material. And finally, because it was a lesser gauge metal, it lost it's heat faster in a blowing wind.
    I have a regular cooking grill that cost me $3,000 when I bought it 12 years ago, and because it is such a high quality, it will last easily another 12. Think of the RecTec in those terms. This will not be a grill that leaves you still looking for another better grill. This one will stay with you forever.

  26. Gem of Grill

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2017

    I love my new RecTec smoker. Easy to assemble and use.

  27. amazing

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2017

    I am a rookie griller. I learned a few things on a gas grill over the last 2 years. I bought a green egg, loved the results...but hated the process. The Rec Tec pellet grill is so awesome. Wood flavor with no gas to manage. Perfect temperature with no airflow to manage. Fantastic flavor. Superior construction. Fantastic customer service. I'm so wowed by my experience so far.

  28. Rec Tec 680 awesome

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2017

    Excellent pellet grill did not disappoint!

  29. Simply amazing.

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2017

    It's like your cheating! I never knew I was such a good cook! Really it is so much fun. I work at a place that sells the "other" guys pellet smoker and could have gotten a big discount BUT did my research, and knew RecTec was the way to go. I have had to build their models and just the hardware is night and day. The 40lb hopper is the best. A 14 hour Boston Butt without having to worry about refilling the hopper is the best. You can't go wrong!

  30. Rec Tec Grill wins the Nobel Prize!!!

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    To the creators and founders of Rec Tec Grills, you guys should win the Nobel Prize for creating such a life changing product! My family never got excited when I mentioned I was going to grill before; however, now when I say I'm cooking dinner on the the Rec Tec grill, the whole family holds their breath in anticipation, to see what I cooked on it this time!!

  32. Best Product Ever

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017

    Easy to use and cooks great!


    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    After being unhappy with my Traeger purchase, I took it back and did a lot of research on wood pellet grills, going back and forth between REC TEC and Yoder. I am extremely happy with my decision to go with REC TEC. So far, everything I have read or heard about REC TEC is 100% true. About an hour after my purchase I received a phone call from a representative at REC TEC to make sure I was happy with my purchase and answered any questions I had. After being delivered to my doorstep within a week, the assembly was a breeze (less than an hour). This grill has lived up to the hype so far. I love the 40lb hopper, the ease of use, digital temp settings, temp stays within 5 degrees of setpoint, and looks bad ass!!! This purchase was worth every penny. If you are on the fence make this purchase, you won't be disappointed.

  34. Absolutely Awesome Grill/Smoker

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    I looked forever trying to decide which pellet smoker to get. The Rec Tec was a little up there on price but it is well worth the money! Its just an amazing grill! From grilling steaks to smoking a brisket, this thing cooks amazing food!! Grill is SOLID! I am so impressed and can't get over how well this things cooks! Plus it looks awesome!

    Thank you Rec Tec,

  35. Exceptional

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2017

    I have been using charcoal smokers for 10+ years. So have been reading up on pellet smokers over the last couple of years. Was truly very skeptical on getting the quality of food I am used to, needless to say very much pleased yes, and then some!!!! With my order I also ordered the amazing smoke tube truly not even needed you cook at 220 to 235 it’s really not needed. With my order Rec Tec through in a free bag of pellets Wow that was very nice surprise. I have had the smoker for less than a month and already have 10 cooks on it. I have done a 22 hour smoke on a pork butt turned out amazing. I had 2 temp probes on the grill I also set the range on probes with only a 20 degree swing. To my amazement on a 22 hour smoke no 1 bark from my probes. The RT680 holds what you set it at period. By my use it runs about 1 pound of pellets per hour give or take ½ pound. People who are new to smoking cook wise you can’t go wrong, it’s up to you on prep for whatever flavor spice wise. Other than that you can’t go wrong. Like I said done pork butt , ribs, chicken. Also did reverse sear on rib eye steaks holly crape WOW the taste MONEY . This grill will smoke till your heart is content. And you can push this thing to 500 degrees for burgers steaks whatever. When doing my research I was truly looking at the Yoder money was not a factor in my choice. The simplicity of temp control was and REC Tec knocked it out of the park. Assembly takes about well with me and my 17 year old son 2 hours took our time and had fun doing it father and son great moment. On a side note my now old smoker Weber Smokey mountain retired well unless going camping the REC TEC is up to temp and cooking in 30 min on charcoal 1 hour plus by the time get lit bring to temp and stabilize. Have also a drum smoker and an offset it’s the same 1 plus hours to start cooking. Not to mention fire tending. Now I can truly say can concentrate on cooking and not both cooking and fire and temp.

    Thank you, REC TEC

  36. best pellet grill out there

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    I have a twin eagles gas grill which I will hardly use now- I had a large Green egg which I sold. I looked at Treager and Green Mountain and they are not even close to my Rec Tec . It is like having a new toy. Best purchase ever.

  37. Looking to replace offset smoker - found the answer it's REC TEC!

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2017

    having done many briskets on an offset smoker for years - I have a little worried about switching to a pellet smoker but after doing my first brisket on the REC TEC my concern is gone. Followed the combined guidance from YouTube videos and my own experience it was amazing. The bonus of how easy the long smoke was with the large capacity and consistent temp was outstanding. I'm fully converted and the REC TEC was awesome. I also did 2 racks of ribs and some of the best I've ever done.

  38. love it

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2017

    Been awesome so far

  39. You Can Take Them At Their Word

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2017

    Several weeks ago I purchased the Rec Tec RT 680. I had been researching the market and what it had to offer in pellet burners. I looked at quite a few different brands, I won't list them here because obviously, I made what I considered to be the best choice. Rec Tec has the best controlling system, the best construction materials, and the best guarantee. They really do stand behind their product and it shows. I have already had several cooks now, ranging from four huge slabs of beef short ribs, (dino bones,) to competition style pork loin back ribs and St. Louis style spare ribs, every cook was as advertised. The controlling system kept the temp dead on for hours at a time without fluctuation. When I opened the cooking chamber up to do what I needed to do the resulting loss in temp was corrected quickly as soon as the door was closed again, and settled right back into the set temp. All the finished products came out perfect, which I am embarrassed to admit had almost never happened before. After years of fighting the fire box to keep the temperature at least somewhat consistent, I can't tell you how much it means to me to have the time to enjoy a cooking session.

    I would like to thank the General Manager, Ben Lesshafft, for personally handling a small delivery problem I had with the shipping company. He actually did answer his phone at 9:30 PM to help a customer. This is a great company and a great product. Thanks to all at Rec Tec from the owners to the shipping crew.

  40. Customer Service second to none

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2017

    I received a smoker for Father's Day, first chance to fire it up was Labor Day weekend. Instructions indicated there would be visible white smoke. Upon seeing no white smoke I sent an email, figuring a reply to come next week. Within five minutes I had a phone call, was told there is smoke but will only see the white smoke at temperatures below 250. Was also having some issues with the wireless thermometer that they immediately cleared up. The smoker itself is a high quality unit, but the customer service puts this company off the charts. They clearly know how to do business right!

  41. Hardest part of cooking is taking off the cover

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2017

    I could not be happier with the purchase of the RT-680. I have had a large wood smoker for many years and only used it a couple times a year because of the constant attention required and by the time food is done so am I. Too tired to enjoy your own party. I am cooking on the RecTec at least once a week. Cooking to perfection is easy. Now it's all about what to try next. Clean up is easy, change the foil, vac the ash, cover the smoker for the next time. Cover can be a bit of a challenge to get off but I am getting better at that too.

  42. simply AWESOME

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2017

    Have cooked several Brisket, a Turkey on it so far and it is all that I exspected and more, it is built so well compared to other Pellet Grills that have seen. This is a KICK ASS GRILL that's all that I can say and Rec Tec customer service is extrodinary I tell everyone I know that shows an interest in grill you gotta YouTube Rec Tec Grills before you buy. The are the top of the line at a affordable price 5 Stars is not enough to discrbe this Grill. Still waiting on my ordered Cold Smoker attachment, can't wait to get it

  43. the best

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2017

    Bought the mini and quickly realized it was not going to be big enough. Bought the 680 and absolutely love it. Effortless smoking and grilling. I love it.

  44. Great Grill

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2017

    The grill arrived on time and the shipper was very helpful with the off loading. The grill was packaged good and no damage to the grill. Easy assembly. It is fun to cook on and try different recipes.

  45. Best grill / smoker ever!

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2017

    This grill was recommended to me by a close culinary professional. I've had other quality smokers but this exceeded all expectations and then some! The engineering of this smoker is simply amazing and it's performance is state of the art smooth. Why settle for anything less. Rec tech 680 grill / smoker delivers as promised!

  46. RT-680 is Awesome

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    Received my 680 about a month ago and wanted to use it some before writing a review. I put it together by myself in a little over a hour. The fit and finish was perfect except for a small scratch in the red powder coat near the hinge. I called REC-TEC to order the grill grates and a cover and I mentioned the small scratch. The guy told me that he would send me a bottle of touch up paint and would ship the grates and cover free of charge. There's not another company in the country that would do that.
    As others have mentioned the cover fits almost to perfectly and I managed to put a small tear in it the first time I put it on.
    So far I have cooked a little bit of everything and have yet to screw up anything. The wife and I love the smoke flavor the food develops as it is not a heavy smoke flavor. Perfect for us. I have tried a variety of pellets but the only ones availabLe locally are the Traeger, Pit Boss or Lumber Jack pellets and I tried them all. Our favorite was the complimentary bag of Rec-Tec ultimate pellets so that is what we will be using from here on out.
    I like to be able to look at something before I buy it and I looked at everything I could find. After watching the videos I decided to go with Rec-Tec and I can tell you it is well worth it. The shipping is nothing compared to the extra quality you get.

  47. Best Money Ever Spent

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2017

    I have been in the market for a great smoker for awhile , and like most, I'm sure you have run across ( 3 ) that have been always placed at the top of ever review. I am not going to post names, but 1 starts with (Y), one starts with (T) and of course the RecTec. After taking EVERYTHING into account. "build quality, material and value". I was still torn between two, the RecTec and the "Y". Now the "Y" cost more, but that is because I was in love with the stout beefy look with the competition cart. But then I spoke with a few employees at RecTec. And that was it, my search was over. I knew that I could build myself a nice competition cart of my own, but there is nothing, I Mean NOTHING you as a purchaser can do about customer service. And I am here to tell you, You can NOT beat RecTecs customer service. "Incredible". Now I have been around awhile, and I have bought some really nice and costly things in my life. And I know machines break. I love knowing if something goes wrong, with ONE call I will get fast and helpful customer service.
    I have had my unit for just over 1 Month, and in that time I have cooked, smoked and even seared on it with ZERO issues. I LOVE IT. Its the best money you will ever spend.

  48. A Beast!

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2017

    Awesome grill, worth every penny! Built really strong & super easy to use, I wish I would have purchased one years ago. The RecTec family are super helpful, just call them up anytime!

  49. Love our new Rec Tec Grill

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2017

    We have used our grill almost every night. Love being able to set the temperature and leave it. Cooks wonderfully..

  50. Extremely Satisfied

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    Was looking at all pellet grills out there. I narrowed my decision between 2, Treager Timberline 1300 & the Rec TEC RT-680. Both units were not to be seen anywhere in person. Reading reviews online I took some advice and called Rec TEC customer service. Spoke with Connor on a Friday. He answered all my questions, also referring me to the you tube videos for a side by side comparison. After talking with Connor he told me they were going to be closed on Saturday so I called on the following Monday and talked to Andy. Both Connor and Andy answered all questions asked and were extremely helpful. Hands down this has been the best decision made. The RT-680 is beyond excellent. Brisket, ribs and pulled pork came out juicy and tender. My advice, buy it, don't waste any time in a decision. You will not be disappointed.

  51. nicest grill i have ever had or used

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    I watched a lot of YouTube videos and sought out reviews when my propane grill quit working. While I was a bit skeptical of the pellet grill, I took the plunge and bought the 680 and a few hundred pounds of pellets. I have used it 6-10 times now and it continues to impress. Beercan chickens...no problem...ribs, easy as 3-2-1....burgers, no sweat...shrimp, sausage, cornbread...check! So easy to set temp, and maintains like a champ. It seems really efficient in the burn too, as I have gone through much less pellets than I thought I might. Wonderful product!

  52. Fantastic Smoker and Excellent Customer Service

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    I have owned a green egg for a couple of years and always had issues maintaining precise temperatures without babysitting it which made overnight cooks impossible. This smoker is as good as it gets. Precise temperature control and long cooks. I needed a replacement part and the team at Rectec could not have been more accommodating and responsive. Overall satisfaction is 11 out of 10 stars. Do yourself a favor and get one of these.

  53. Wonderful Smoker

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2017

    This has really been a great experience with this smoker. Wish I had gotten a 680 long ago.

  54. TAM Texas 17

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2017

    Well built. Easy to put together, my wife and I put it together in 1 hour. Tried with two chickens and they turned out great. To hot outside, will try more items once the weather gets cooler.

  55. Newcomer review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I am new to grilling and can't say how much I enjoy the Rec Tec 680. I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger and found the Rec Tec 680 as the best of the best. It has not disappointed. The entire family has loved everything I have cooked on it. My daughter wouldn't touch a hamburger before but now she loves them grillex on the 680.

  56. Grilling with Holy Smoke !!!

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I purchased my Rec Tec 680 after I had two bad experiences with the Weber Genesis II LX 3burner. But I will say, it was not so much a grill failure, rather than an assembly error. But the frustration was enough to make me go back and re-asscess the RecTec, which was my initial choice. Although my wife continued to want the smaller 2- burner, and said I could get the Rectec mini and we could have the best of both, I just went for the RecTec. This was the correct decision

    I ordered from Conner on Friday And got call Tuesday saying it was here ( Irvine, Ca) and would be delivered Friday morning. Seven days from order to delivery..... from Augusta to California. Not too shabby.

    When it arrived, the packaging was excellent. No damage and when I in-boxed , it had all parts and hardware. Took about 1-1/2 hrs due to it taking 30 minutes for first bolt. It just would not work. Finally it got on and the whole process of assembly was great. Good instructions and the final fit was dead nuts on.

    I burned in according to the manual and then did some ribeye steaks. Great taste. Have since then, made spatchcock chicken and a brisket. 12 hrs for brisket cooking at 230F. It stalled at 150F for 5 hrs. When it got to 165 I wrapped and added 1 cup au jus and put back on until reaching 200F. Let it rest for hour and sliced. My wife was really impressed and could not believe the flavor!!! If I had to do it again, would not wrap and take off at 195F. Am now ready for a Boston Butt and pork sandwiches for the weekend.

    I have to say I was really worried about purchasing a $1000 item thecweighed over 300 lbs sigh in-seen. But after reading the reviews, watching videos and speaking with the folks at RecTec, I pulled the trigger. I also would suggest getting the fold down shelf and sear package as I think it is required.

    Customer service at RecTec is great as I wasted to ask some questions and guess what? I called Ray Carnes and was he called me back within 3 minutes.

    If you are hesitating about purchasing this grill, please look at reviews and call them with any questions you may have.... you won't regret it.


    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I recently bought the rec tec smoker and it is a huge difference from the traeger smoker I just threw out because
    The whole thing caught fire including the pellet feeder,,There are no more temp swings, I just set temp and not worry
    About it,,I recommend this smoker to anyone,

  58. first smoker grill

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    Have used a few times and very happy with the simplicity. Maintains temperature and drops quickly when needed. Might to invest more to get the additional accessories.

  59. Heavy Duty AWSOME

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    I have owned many different types of grills and smokers, gas,propane ,electric and charcoal. Barrel, Komodo, and quality grills. This RecTec is a quality piece of work. I received it two weeks ago and got started cooking right out of the box. First a beer can chicken to season grill. AWSOME. I am a avid fisherman so onto smoking Bonita, first batch 180 deg for 5 hours. INCREDIBLE. Many compliments! ! Next ribs 3-2-1 very delicious. Then a Margarita pizza ,could have been better but nothing to do with grill, need a better crust recipie and more experience with pizza making. Next more smoking of bluefish. Even better than Bonita. Adjusted brine recipie and smoked even more Bonita and Blufish. Freinds and family were very impressed with results It just keeps improving!! This grill is incredible. Burnt through my first 40 lbs of pellets and expect the food flavor and quality to improve with time and experience. I can't say enough about the quality of this grill, solid and the accuracy of temp is within a degree over entire grilling process. Litterally set it and forget it. I expect this grill to last a very long time judging by the workmanship and the quality of componets, and with RecTecs 6 yr warrenty that shows me of their confidence with this grill also. I have not had any issues other than they forgot to include grill cover with order but with phone call that was rectified imediately. I am very happy with this grill and am very confident that i made the right choice with this Beast. I grill in MA year round and use my grill more than my stove inside. So as they say, write the check and buy the Tec you wont regret the purchase, that i can assure you !!

  60. quality product

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2017

    Recd my rec tec 2 days after ordering. I was very pleased with the way it is built. High quality materials used..used the grill to smoke some baby back ribs,held temp perfectly,ribs turned out very good,they did not last long..going to do some more Labor Day weekend.thanks for a very good product.

  61. Amazed

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2017

    I've been making BBQ for about ten years, first on an offset cooker and then a Kamando. There were a few issues with both methods the biggest of which was doing overnight cooks. I was getting catnaps on the couch and checking the fire often. Since getting my Rec Tec I did an overnight with a brisket and pork belly. Temp held perfect at 225 all night even when it rained. After several cooks now, I started to break the habit of running out to check the temp every 15 minutes. My only regret is I waited so long to finally buy one. With the worry about maintaining steady temp out of the way, I'm trying different recipes that I'd never tried before ... like the pork belly which was delicious.

  62. Why did I wait so long

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2017

    I finally pulled the trigger on purchasing a wood pellet grill and extremely satisfied with my selection after exhausting research. I am cooking different recipes at least 5 times a night. I have smoked ribs and brisket grilled steaks, chicken, pork and seafood. I never knew these foods could taste so much better. If I had any issues or questions the guys at Rec-Tec have provided immediate response and help. This type of Quality Product and Service is difficult if not impossible to find in today's environment of take the money and move on.

  63. You will not regret purchasing the Rec Tec

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    I finally decided to purchase the Rec Tec 680 and am I glad that I did. I tried so hard to get good smoked food on my electric smoker and kamado style but was not happy with the results. If you enjoy smoking/grilling food, this baby is for you. I am very, very, happy with it and I can honestly say that, NOW, I can produce a brisket or pork butt as well as my buddy with his stick built. Except he has to stay beside his and I don't have to. .

  64. Worry Free BBQing

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

    The RecTec is so good at keeping the desired temperature I never go out and check on it. I trust it. The grill is solid and I believe the best on the market for its price range. I've only called customer service once to help Adjust the auger feed rate so my experience is limited but the rep was fantastic and I've heard other people gush about how the customer service is the best in the business. I don't doubt them.

  65. Great Smoker - easy to use!

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

    Good looking smoker that's easy to use!!! Eliminates much of the guesswork!

  66. In Love!

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

    So I bought this smoker for my husband for our 5 year anniversary (wood theme) and we absolutely love it! I actually use it more than he does! We use it at least 3 times a week and are always searching for new recipes we can try. The assembly was easy, they have great videos on youtube for beginners, and my favorite part is that our food doesn't char like it did on the grill. If you are wondering if this is worth the money.... it is!

  67. best of the best.

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2017

    I am hesitant when I read about something cooking the best food other because many people don't know who to cook. This is by far the best grill and smoker I ever owned. This does cook the best . Made killer pulled pork, excellent chicken with bite though skin and steakhouse quality steaks.
    If you are hesitant buy the 680 and never turn back. Not to mention this grill looks bad ass. Definitely the talk of the local BBQ cookout. You mention rec tec around a BBQ crowd they know what is . Two thumbs up

  68. Highly highly recommend

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2017

    I always do my homework on big purchases. I have been wanting a wood pellet grill for sometime. After a few months of reading reviews and looking at what each of the big brand names were offering, I pulled the trigger on the 680. The 6 year warranty was a no brainer for me. But the grill has exceeded my expectations. I assembled the grill myself although my husband had to help me unpackage it as the barrel and some of the parts are quite heavy.
    I made an error when installing the temperature probe and disconnected the wire. I contacted customer service the next day. I spoke with one of the owners and he told me how to temporarily fix the wire and he would send a replacement out that day no charge...awesome customer service!
    Once the grill was assembled, it was impressive...awesome look with the bright red barrels and stainless steel bull horn handles!
    My first cook on it was a beef brisket. The grill absolutely did it's part. Since then I have done ribs, steaks, burgers, veggies, etc. I prefer to cook on it every opportunity I get instead of heating up my kitchen.
    The only thing I would do different is order this grill today instead of last July. Only for the simple reason REC TEC is selling the 680 for $600 less than what I paid.
    Therefore, if you are looking for a wood pellet grill, the REC TEC 680 is it! For under $1000 dollars, nothing compares!!

  69. Rec Tec grill turned me into a great chef on the grill!

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2017

    I used to get made fun of by my wife and family for how burnt everything was coming off the grill. It was pretty terrible. Since the Rec Tec showed up a month ago, I've heard, "This is the best burgers I have ever ate!" I've cooked roasts, chickens, burgers, deer sticks all with great success! Love my new grill!!! Everything about the grill is what Ray says it is.

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    I had a great stick smoker and it is a brisket making machine. I cooked with oak, mesquite and pecan and the meat was great. The Rec Tec cooked as good or better and the flavor profile was great. Smoke ring was profound. The smoke flavor was NOT over powering. The installation was easy. Customer service is off the chain great. Having a computer run the smoker is great....I though this was cheating but now I have found a new love.

  73. Super impressed!!

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    My husband did all the research for this grill before I bought it. He fell in love and watched the videos what seemed like daily. It took me a bit to get over the price but I will say hands down it's worth every penny. We use it almost daily and not just for meat. My hubby made Mac n cheese on it a few weeks ago and it was the best I've ever tasted!!! We love our RecTec!!!!!

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    Good quality

  75. Best Grill and Company!!!!

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    I originally owned the 300. I had a problem, not the grills fault. I called RecTec and told them my story, even though it was my fault the 300 failed. I never asked for compensation, they offered me a full refund towards the 660. Best CS ever. Also the best grill I have ever owned and that's saying something, I have owned grills for 50 years. I love it.

  76. It's too easy to be great with this grill

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    After trying to smoke brisket flats and tri tips on a weber kettle for a couple of years, I finally stepped up to the big leagues with the RT-680. My first brisket flat on it was the best one I have ever done. Kept the rub the same, but the fact that this smoker will maintain temp so well over 12 hours is the difference. Oh, and you don't have to babysit it every 30 minutes. Set it and forget it. I did some baby backs the next day for 8 hrs and they were outstanding as well. Next up is a turkey breast. I've only had this smoker for about 2 weeks maybe and I've probably already put 20 hours on it. It really puts out more smoke below 250 than I thought it would. My only complaint (and it's small) is the fit where the legs slide up into sockets under the grill body is kinda sloppy, and the bolts aren't quite long enough. I shimmed those sockets on mine so it wouldn't wobble. Other than that, the grill is really solid, made out of heavy stainless materials. I like the fact that the lid hinges have slots in them where they bolt on so you can even the lid where it closes evenly on both sides if it's not already. Overall, well built smoker that can produce some top notch barbecue with little effort.

  77. Does Everything Well except 1 thing

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    I love the RT-680 I don't think I have let it rest since I bought it. I blew through the first 40 pounds of pellets in a week. The pork steak recipe I came up with using this grill is dedicated to my wife. Now I have to make it once a week. The one thing I don't like as much, and the only thing is Beef steak. I do have the searing plate and have followed those instructions. I just don't get a even sear like I prefer. So now I use this grill for smoking the steak and finish it on the Green Egg. All that being said this is the most versatile grill I have ever used and the quality is number one. I would not hesitate to recommend.

  78. Awesome Product

  79. Couldn't have asked for a better product.

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    I have loved the grill, it was easy to assemble and has worked terrific. The temps have stayed spot on the food has turned out amazing. If you are on the fence about buying a Rec Tec, don't be the product and customer service are top notch.

  80. Amazing!

  81. Our New Rec-Tec Rocks!

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    Recently replaced our old Traeger with a new Rec-Tec. I was impressed by the Rec-Tec quality specs online and the Rec Tec has been awesome. I am 5 for 5 on the first five meals cooked on the Rec-Tec, looking forward to many more! Burgers, Steaks, Chicken and Veggie Kabobs all turned out great!

  82. One of my best investments!!

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    I was interested in purchasing a smoker and was seriously considering a Traeger until I came across the Rec Tec. The quality and materials were far superior. Customer service has been amazing so far. I was missing one of the items from my order. I emailed them and they had a new one shipped out to me the next morning no questions asked. New to grilling and so far loving it!

  83. Rectec grill

  84. What a great smoker.

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2017

    A smoker the you set and forget. Well, for as long as it takes to cook. Simple to put together, great to cook on, easy to clean. What else do you need/want.

  85. I own two big green eggs and gas grill. rec tec is my favorite

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2017

    Love how it cooks Salmon and burgers and vegetables. Made my own beef jerky. Best I have ever made. Have not used any of my other grills since I bought my Rec Tec. Best turkey I have cooked. So easy to use

  86. I've Owned a Holland and a Kamado type grill

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    This grill is top notch. Quality throughout. It is the easiest grill to use that I have ever owned. The food tastes great and there is no fiddling required. Load the hopper with wood pellets, plug it into the wall outlet, turn it on to temperature you want, and Boom! You are cooking shortly thereafter. When your done, turn it off. My wife rarely grilled on my other grills, even the Holland. She has grilled chicken and pizza already on the Rectec. Do yourself a favor and get the shelf, Bullpen Thermometer and searing plates. I grilled hamburgers the other day in 10 minutes to a perfect well done temp. This grill takes the fiddle factor out of grills and let's you get to cooking easily. Cook at lower temps for a great smokey flavor or get the wood pellet tube to add even more smoke flavor to any temp cooking. I love this grill! Best investment in a LONG time!!! Plus you get to watch Ray's videos showing how to cook it up right! Go Dawgs!

  87. 680 plus awesome!

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    Same story over and over! Research, visit cosco Traeger day, thin metal etc. Wanted something to last and a great value. Cost/value, heavy metal, warranty, all the positive feedback. Great choice, wife was not too enthusiastic about price. Cooked pork ribs, salmon, brisket, beer can chicken, Cajun chicken, pulled pork shoulder (wife had 3 servings). Now my wife is happy. Purchased 680, cooking mats, second shelf. Wife had me order the custom cover after my first two cooks. I know there are higher priced grills, and I wish those who can afford it happy cooking. I'm happy with my grill and family starting to bring meat to smoke on the weekend. There's nothing like cooking for your family and having them tell you it's awesome! A job is always easier with the right tools! And mine is a RECTEC 680 Grill! Happy Grilling!

  88. excellant alternative to treager

    I've had the pellet smoker/grill for a few weeks now. It weighs quite heavy, much heavier than my previous grill/smoker. I'm very pleased with it. Does cook quite well

  89. great smoker

    Smoker is working perfectly. It is making me look like a good cook!! Thank you for excellent customer service I highly recommend this product.

  90. When you are getting old you need something that work great.

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    I was born in 1949 with a Simi-club foot repaired kinda but that didn't stop me from anything I wanted to do. I started to BBQ at early age. But after using Rec Tech 680 my bbqing wasn't good at all. It is a dream to use and when it windy and it is alot here on hill I could not bbq cause the wind blow out the flame. Not with my new 680 it can blow or rain and it keep on smoking. I have won awards for cooking and beer making but had to quit a lots of thing because my legs are not working good but with the 680 once I start it I can sit back and watch it. The other thing I like is the stainless steel ( no rusting) and a 6yr warranty It is the best birthday present I have ever got. Thank You Rec Tech for making a fantastic product and making my life easier .

  91. Amazing results convert skeptical wife into a huge fan.

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    Fantastic smoker, which has produced outstanding results so far. My wife was reluctant to get this smoker, as she had not had very good "bbq" in the past and didn't think it was practical. Well she's since changed her tune, and now she wants to smoke everything! Quick and simple operation makes it much easier to smoke a meal without it becoming an all-consuming weekend project... Which leads to more frequent use. With the second shelf accessory, we were able to smoke four 9-lb briskets (with enough room for a 5th) for a party that we hosted. Several gustes were drooling over not just the brisket... But also the smoker. Only issue i had was related to delay in delivery by shipping company. 15 min after calling RecTec, the shipping company called me to arrange delivery for the next day.

  92. Top of the food smoking chain!

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2017

    With this being my first smoker, I had a lot of questions to ask my father. He's had every type of smoker: pellet, electric, stick, gravity feed, drum, that one "egg" thingy. With his reaction it was plain to see RECTEC is going everything right! The light inside, the temp controller, the 304 Stainless Steel, the rollerblade style wheels, the drip bucket extended hook, all the way down to the bull horn handles. Saying TOP NOTCH gives room for the others behind them. RECTEC's customer service and 6 year warranty put them head and shoulders (pork shoulders...mmm) above the rest! Keep it up guys!

  93. easy

  96. best decision ever

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    I have cooked on a pellet grill for over 9 yrs. I have a traeger and I can't say anything bad about my traeger, but after buying a REC TEC, I can tell you there is no comparison. I was in the market for a pellet grill to take camping. After a lot of research I decided to buy a 300. It was immediately apparent to me the difference in quality of construction. Much better built grill. Once I used it I was hooked and knew I wouldn't be happy till I had the 680. My son wanted my traeger so he could get started with pellet cooking. I thought about it and just ordered us both new 680. Our first cook was for a family reunion. 10 Boston butts and 18 racks of ribs. It was AWESOME. Now let me comment on customer service. Traeger customer service sucked. It was frustrating as hell to try and get to speak with someone. Might be 4 days of several attempts. Rec Tec customer service is AWESOME. I had a major shipping error and was extremely frustrated. Within 20 minutes the general mgr Ben called me. He went above and beyond to ensure I waa happy. I know own 2 300s and a 680 decked out with a cold box and all the rest of the trimmings. Rec Tec all the way. ISeveral of my buddies have bought them now too

    I've had the Rec Tec 680 for a couple of weeks now and have done Jerkey, Steak, chicken, pork loin and Pizza on it, all of which turned out fantastic. I was very impressed by the follow up call i received from Rec Tec after placing my order, they were extremely friendly and helpful. Once i received the grill I was very impressed with the quality of the materials, everything is well built and heavy duty. Now that i have it set up it is extremely easy to use and holds temperature usually within +/- 5 degrees. I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Rec tec. The only negative is that as with most pellet smokers/grills it is hard to get a good sear, however i can get it up to about 510 and with the searing kit can get decent sear marks on my steaks.

    Did 4 cooks on the grill so far. Chicken, pork loin, eyround, and brisket. Every item came out tender and juicy-even the eyeround. The brisket was amazing. The Rec Tec is solid, holds temperature, and burns very clean. Even roasted potatoes to go with the brisket and they turned out great. I love cooking on this-glad I bought one.

  99. Great smoker, limited on grilling side.

    Have had the grill for several weeks already. Built like a tank with solid material and construction! Quality if definitely there. Smoked with it 3x already and it is perfect for doing that. Getting nice 1/2" smoke rings and the flavor is way better than my old charcoal smoker!!! Grilling burgers and steaks are a little tricky, can be done but take a little finessing to do so. Overall very happy as I bought with intentions of smoking only on it.

    Bought the grill. Had some small issues in assembly (Form and fit issues with components). Unit has more than made up for it in performance. Made 8 racks of ribs and a 12 lb brisket so far. Both are the best I've every had. Unit is easy to operate and maintain.
