  1. Great grill

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2017

    Absolutly love my rec tec. Im new to smoking and this grill makes it easy. My only complaint is the long bolts for putting on the legs are a little short and hard to get started.


  2. dont even use my green egg anymore

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2017

    the easiest,most hassle free grill ive ever used.


  3. excellent

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    Absolutely phenomenal grill! We are so thrilled with our purchase!


  4. Excellent quality makes for amazing food

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    Highly recommend picking one these guys up ASAP!

    Assembly was easy and gave me a chance to confirm the quality of construction and hardware. I fired it up for the initial burn without issue. It heated up quickly.

    Everything I've made has turned out great:
    - st. louis style ribs
    - beef roast for street tacos
    - pizzas
    - brined chicken
    - chicken wings
    - almonds
    - burgers
    - bratwurst

    Things have turned out so well, I've been asked to do pulled pork for 4th of July block party!


  5. Premium pellet smoker, priced right

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    I was going to go out and buy a GMG or a Traeger, so started to do the research online. Became convinced pretty quickly that my expectations would only be met by a Rec-Tec or higher quality pellet smoker (Memphis and Yoder appealed to me). However, none of the reviews that I could find made it sound like there was enough of a difference to justify the cost, at least for someone new to smoking.

    I ordered 5/30, received a call from Rec-Tec the next day letting me know when it would be shipped and how the process would go. Personal call was a nice touch. It then shipped out through Estes and was within 50 miles of my home the first week. It took another week for them to arrange to local delivery. Painful waiting! Arrived 6/14.

    Here are my initial impressions. It was packaged well on the pallet with everything secure and no damage. Easy to assemble with two adults..clear instructions. It is rather heavy, but that is a plus as it means heavier duty construction. Really nice heavy grates and drip pan etc. Didn't have issues with the bolts being short like some reviews say. Fired it up to do the burn in and it auto-ignited and did it's thing.

    So far I've done St. Louis Ribs, Spareribs, and Pork Shoulder. All better than anything I've eaten in restaurants. Massive smoke ring (I use extreme smoke for first couple of hours, but I don't think it's necessary). Ribs were beautiful mahogany color (dry rubs only) and very moist and tender. Did the 3-2-1 method. My rib cook the temperature only varied from 223-226 degrees! Pretty impressive.

    Wish they sold them through a few select dealers, but have no fear buying site unseen. Beautiful grill, solid construction, great PID temp control. I would add Wi-Fi and built in meat probe in as options.


  6. a great product

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    This is a great product, it is what the owners say it is, and what they say make sense. Watch the youtubes for their product description. Grilling is a lot easier, and with better results. Also, you can step away in a hot sun, so you yourself don't have to be grilled when you are grilling your own food.


  7. Getting bigger pants.

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    I've only had this grill for a few weeks but it's been going almost every night. Even my wife who couldn't even turn on our old grill is using it. I've had two different couples over to eat with us and both times they raved about the food that came off it (ribs and pulled pork). Before this grill I struggled with getting either the way I wanted. My only complaint would be that the food is so good that I over eat and I'm gaining weight.


  8. Awesome grill

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2017

    This is a very well built grill. I am happy with the grill and the service. Just outstanding!! Glad I made the decision to buy Rec Tec


  9. Despite the horns, this is no bull…

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2017

    The temperature control is uncanny. This is not my first pellet grill; the first one (from one of the top pellet grill manufacturers) would hold temp within ±15°F, the RT-680 is much more accurate, it is very close to the claimed ±1°F. This does make a difference. You can predict when dinner is done; you can control how it cooks. The burner is more powerful than the other brand and the grill can get much hotter. Precision, and a great range for heating. The proof is in the pudding. Well, haven't made pudding, but from hamburgers to turkey, this has been unbeatable. And the prime rib… I have never got such enthusiastic compliments. Do yourself a favor and get this grill.


  10. My wife thinks I'm a genius!

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2017

    Excellent grill. After 40 years of junk charcoal grills, this grill brings outdoor cooking into the 21st century. A must for any serious outdoor cooking! If I could add or change anything I would like to have the hopper for pellets compartmentalized for easy switching of different kind of pellets.


  11. wow

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2017

    the best grill ever


  12. I Absolutely love my Rec Tec

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2017

    I researched pellet smokers for a year and I decided to buy a Tec Rec grill. it was the best choice i could have ever made! All of my family is impressed with the looks of the grill and later extremely impressed with the taste of my cooking from using my Rec Tec! I can't wait to cook on it again and again!


  13. As Advertised

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    Assembly was easy. Worked as advertised after setup. So far ,cooked a great steak and fixed a pizza using pizza brick. Very easy to use. Beats all the work that I did with green egg.mega


  14. exceptional grill

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product. Have grilled three times since receiving the grill. Love the ease of use and the results.


  15. Solid

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    Went back and forth looking at several possible options. Finally settled on the RecTec 680 and haven't looked back. Very user friendly and simple to use. Cooked up some of the best steaks we've every had at home over Father's Day. It's not looking like the old gasser is going to get much action this summer. Going to try my hand at the Boston Butt this evening. Really enjoying a quite made product.


  16. Awesome Grill and Smoker

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    I was very skeptical of this Grill because I cook a lot of brisket and ribs. I cooked my first brisket on this pit and the Smoke Ring was beautiful. I put the brisket on at 11 p.m. and didn't open the pit up until 8 a.m. it was very nice not to have to tend to a fire all night.


  17. Best da-m smoker grill

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    I was some what reluctant to spend this much for a grill but I was tired of spending $400.00 every three years.
    Anyway this grill is built like a tank, very heavy and very sharp looking.
    I just fired it up on Father's Day and cooked T- bones, fish and French bread and everything came out awesome.
    I didn't actually smoke anything but the steaks came out perfect.


  18. Great Grill

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2017

    Love this grill. I have smoked on it the last 2 weekends in a row. Second time was 6 racks of baby back ribs, a tritip and a bunch of marinated chicken. The grill was packed and all of it turned out phenomenal.
    Only sad part was in large writing all over the box that said made in Chine. Made me sad as I thought I was buying a made in america product.


  19. Imported to Alberta, Canada

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2017

    I should mention that I own a Traeger 34 series and a Yoder 640 YS.
    Both are great pits.
    I decided to purchase both the Rec tec mini and the 680 size.
    Packing for shipment was excellent. It included a personal letter from the sales dept. A nice touch.
    The assembly went very smoothly.
    I was pretty proud of my great looking 680 and mini.
    My first cook was at about 5f. A pretty chilly day.
    I had a problem. The power cord is made of china's hardest plastic making it impossible to get into the wall plug. I had to use an extension cord to gently plug the pit into.
    I did my initial start up and pre burn to get the pit seasoned.
    Everything went well.
    My first cook happened about 2 hours later after prepping 4 pork butts.
    The rec tec cooked them perfectly holding an even temp of 220f even with the wind blowing.
    It varied so little that i kept checking the temp as I thought it was displaying the set temp and not the actual.
    I cannot say enough about the accuracy of this pit.
    I checked the internal temps using a remote thermopro thermometer. Very even right the way across.

    After using the rec tec for about 6 months the casters piled up. I could no longer turn the pit.
    I contacted RecTec and new casters appeared quickly despite using USPS. lol

    You must buy the Stainless shelf for this pit.

    The cover fits amazingly well.

    I do use a smoke tube with most cooks though as i feel most meats need a little bit extra puff.

    I only have one small complaint and that is the main power cord is cheap and nasty and does not work well below 32f.

    I have rewired both the mini and the 680 with good quality flexible rubber exterior cords and life is good.

    My wife really likes the mini.

    Accurate cooking temps, a great look. I like my Rec Tec's.


  20. What a suprise!

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2017

    I came home Friday afternoon wore out, being a Heating and Cooling Tech in record heat June all i wanted was 10 minutes of peace and quiet, but i knew that with 2 litle girls i was not going to get that. Craby and tired my wife said to me "why dont we grill tonight, but you will have to put it together", "PUT IT TOGETHER??? i dont have patiance today for jokes" was my response. She led me down to the garage and said, "in that box right there is your Fathers day present", "that grill that you have been going on for months arrived this afternoon". Standing there stone faced realising what kind of a woman had her hand on my shoulder i almost teared up, i have been born in a country thousands of miles away, lived trough a civil war, emigrated to United States in search of the "American Dream", as corny as it sounds this moment is when i felt that the Dream had became reality. This grill is high quality, from the materials to the finish, this grill is easy to use from assembly to setup, this grill is perfect, this grill is mine. Thank you to everyone at Rec Tec grills for making this product, more so thank you to the owner who called my wife when she purchased the grill and displayed the kind of customer service i didnt think was around anymore. To anyone on the fence about buying this grill i say " jump in both feet the water feels great".


  21. Best Fathers Day gift to myself!

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2017

    Received on a Friday and 24 hours later I'm smoking a brisket and 2 pork butt's. Set at 225 degrees and 14 hours later they came out perfect! Beautiful smoke ring on all the meats and the juiciness/flavor was delicious. All my siblings and in-laws have declared from now on I'm in-charge of the cooking.


  22. set it and forget it

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    Best smoker I have used and I've even built one don't have to worry about temp or putting more wood on the fire just set you temperature and walk away


  23. Living up to its reputation...

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    Initial contact customer service was first class and refreshing in today's world of retail. Communication was outstanding throughout the sale and delivery process. Assembly went well with help from my 14 year old daughter and we were up and running on our first brisket the next morning. Cooking experience was phenomenal and the meat looked and tasted like a pro had taken over. Since then, we've cooked chicken ribs and corn on it and had amazing results each time. Love the Rec Tec.


  24. Makes Grilling Easy!

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    I have always enjoyed "grilling" but this is a new experience. I have used the RECTEC a couple times and already getting used to the adjustment. Simply, turn on and set the tempature, go in and get the meat, come back out and place on the grill, shut the top and enjoy a cold beverage whilst the RECTEC does all the work. No running out of propane, no checking the meat to make sure it doesn't flare up, no moving from hot spot to other hot spot to get even cooking, no guessing at the tempature or time, no issues at all.

    The Rectec arrived on time and assembled easily. There were a couple bonuses to get me started grilling right away and I followed the "seasoning" video instructions and tried out some steaks the same night. They were wonderful and as mentioned easy to do. I bought the "big grill" and it is HUGE! There is more than enough room to make an entire meal for the entire crew. We are hosting a Father's Day BBQ and are looking forward to cooking steaks and veggies on the RECTEC for about a dozen people. The next challenge is a neighborhood BBQ, maybe I will do ribs or a brisket, either way, the RECTEC will make it easy!!


  25. The best reason to eat meat

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2017

    I have been a charcoal griller for the last several years, but had become interested in slow cooking/smoking meats for some time. Initially I had seen some new Traeger's at my local backyard shop, and was intrigued. Was mentioning the prospect of getting a smoker to a family member, who told me not to waste my time with Traeger and recommended rec-tec. I spent about 10-15 hours trying to research various products and ended up sticking with rec-tec. Glad I took his advice (and did a little extra research), as I have been extremely pleased with my rt-680. We have had this for about a month now, and have tried a variety of foods with it.

    In the last 3 weeks (or so), we have made:
    2 sets of spare ribs - absolutely delicious
    Approximately 50 chicken wings - each time they came out perfectly
    14 pound turkey - so juicy
    8 pound brisket - fall apart meat with incredible taste
    Approximately 8 drumsticks - pretty good taste, I think our quality of meat wasn't the best
    About 16 ears of corn - easy to cook, tastes great
    Tray of mac and cheese - nice mild smokey flavor
    about 5 frozen pizzas - again, adds a nice mild smokey flavor

    As you can see, we have been very busy eating well! By no means am I an expert cooker, or have any amount of training with the meats listed above, but that is the beauty of the RT-680. You don't need to be awesome with food to make amazing food. I have cooked for my family, my friends, my neighbors, co-workers, and even my in-laws, and everyone agrees that the food tastes perfect. And again, I can't really stress enough how easy the food is to make. For my wings, I rub em with a little olive oil, sprinkle on a rub and chuck them in at 275 for an hour, then go up to 400 until skin is perfect. That's it, not hard. I have been using injections to increase the moistness of the meat for the brisket and turkey, but that's the most complicated thing I have done.

    Regarding the hardware:

    Set up/Build - pretty easy, with a little help from my wife, took about 1.5 hours (in a hot garage). The instructions could have been a little clearer(the diagrams weren't perfect), but overall was very easy. Turning it on and test running the smoker was super easy.

    Ease of use - Extremely easy to use, you turn it on and set your temp and that is it (also make sure you have your pellets in, obviously). The internal thermometer was pretty darn good, within 5-10 degree with the "actual temp" on the display (I checked with an external thermometer system). Cleaning is fairly easy, I put tin foil over the drip pan before each use which saves a lot of hassle. I would recommend a wireless meat thermometer system for your longer/bigger cooks. Also easy to load wood pellets.

    Quality of build - It's heavy (in a good way). Nothing feels flimsy, feels like it could take a beating. Can't comment on the weatherproof-ness of the the machine as I leave mine in my garage when not in use. I have seen videos online of people cooking in blizzards but I personally can't comment on this.

    Taste - Cannot emphasize this enough, the food is delicious, and requires minimal work and know how. If you aren't a pro with food, that's fine. Watch a 10 minute video on youtube and you can make great food. I know it's good when my peckish mother-in-law go's back for seconds. I can't comment on it's taste compared to other smokers (as I don't have them), but I love the mild smokey taste. To add extra smokiness, I have used the Amazen smoker tube for a little bit more.

    Aesthetics - it looks darn good. Personally I think the red lid and the metallic horns add some really nice flair. These are just little touches, but for the price, might as well look awesome.

    Cost - With my RT-680, I bought 200 pounds of wood pellets, a large shelf, two meat thermometers ( a wireless one for long cooks, and a rec tec one for smaller meats), non stick mats, searing kit (still haven't used yet), a cover (haven't used yet as I keep it in the garage), and the rub kit. I think I spent about $1700 for all of this. This was a pretty heft investment. For my family, I would say this is definitely worth it, as we now eat out much less (saving money), but also the quality of food we eat is drastically improved.

    Overall - Is this smoker worth it? Absolutely yes! It's easy to use, the food tastes amazing, and I think the price is reasonable given the high quality of what you are getting. I have already been recommending this to everyone.

    Hope this is useful for anyone considering buying it. I will probably put a review up on amazon in the future, with additions after I have used it longer.


  26. EASY & AWESOME!

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2017

    I have been eyeing the 680 for a couple of years. Keeping up with the reviews, videos and comparisons hoping this wasn't just a fad before I could justify purchasing a top of the line grill/smoker. I have only used it 5 times in 2 weeks, but everything I smoked/grilled came out better than awesome and it is so easy to use! From ribs, steak, pork butt and thick cut bacon, they all came out great, making me look like a great cook. It is very easy to use. The searing kit and large inside shelf is well worth the add on. I used the searing kit for 1' cut ribeye's and they were by far the best steaks I have EVER eaten. I love to put thick cut bacon on the inside shelf with meat under and let the drippings from the bacon drip on the meat for extra flavor. My family has already set up parties for me to cook.


  27. The best grill I've ever owned

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2017

    By far, this is the best grill that I have ever owned. Two weeks before I purchased the Rec Tec, I bought a Traeger. Sadly, I had nothing but problems with the heating control system. After fighting with it for a week, I took it back to the store for a refund. I must admit, that at that point I was a bit concerned about buying another wood pellet grill. After researching many different brands, I chose the Rec Tec. I must say, it was the best choice that I've made in quite some time. My neighbor say it, and ordered the smaller Rec Tec grill. Between us, we'll be able to handle the whole neighborhood!


  28. This was a great decision to purchase.

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    We have a fairly new "stick" smoker with a new pile of split wood ready to go for the summer. However, our son showed us the RecTec grill his neighbor just bought and we were instantly sold on how much easier it was to barbecue on this electric grill than our smoker was. The brisket beat anything we have ever done on our smoker too. We have done only a few things so far on the grill. We smoked ribs and actually tomatoes from the garden. The ribs were great but using the grill mats the tomatoes were slowly smoked and dehydrated on the grill. the made a great smokey tomato dip. So far we are very happy with our purchase. The customer service department was very good too. I had a few questions about the grill and they contacted me almost immediately with the answers. This is a great product.


  29. Smoke em

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    I have been around other brand pellet grills, Not mentioning any names, So I'm not a newbe when it come's to smoke-in The Rec-Tec stacks up to all them and many improvement's over others. Warranty is awesome. I'm proud of my pellet smoker. With the use of a smoke tube I'm getting all the smoke I want. Resurrecting pellet smoker for 4 months, this is the one I choose. 680


  30. Everything you ever needed from a smoker or grill

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    I had read all the reviews and thought "how could one company get this many positive reviews?" well it is because they are all true. Their customer service is amazing. I had questions before buying and they were very honest and helpful. Once I got it delivered it was not very hard to put together. Then I was off to the races on my smoking. I have had some learning to do on how to cook certain things but it has been fun figuring it out. When I follow some of the Rec Tech recipes it turned out amazing. Especially ribs! Overall, this product is everything it says and is truly a set it and forget it smoker as well as a great outside oven and grill. Love it.


  31. Believe the hype

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    OK let's see, it smokes meat perfectly, it sears steaks and burgers perfectly, and it doubles as an extra convection oven.

    I've had the 680 less than 3 weeks now and every meal I've cooked since then has come off of it. I've already used up all the pellets that came with it and more. I've made bacon, pork butt, salmon, ribeyes, burgers and even mac & cheese. Everything has come out perfect. Thanks Rec Tec!


  32. Did all the research and Rec Tec is the best choice

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    Like the title says, I did research on pellet grills for almost a year before I purchased my new Rec Tec. I was very close to going with the more expensive Yoder but my research came to the conclusion that the Rec Tec is an overall better design. I've had it now only a few weeks and I'm very pleased with it but do find that it's a little light on smoky flavor so I'm getting an Amazing Tube. A couple of assembly issues, like the bolts used for the legs would be better if they were just a 1/16 of an inch longer as it's a little difficult to start them on the threads with the flat washer and the lock washer in place. Overall it's one of the best grill purchases I have ever made.


  33. Heck of a thing

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    I've had this RT-680 for a few weeks and everything I've cooked in it has been perfect.

    So far I've done a lot of bacon (perfect), a Boston Butt (perfect), a few ribeyes (perfect), some burgers (perfect), and some smoked salmon. Next thing is a prime rib, then who knows what.


  34. so far EXCELLENT

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2017

    After being so disappointed with 2 recent purchases of Traeger, we could not be happier with our RecTec. Love the way it holds a steady temp. Love it.


  35. wonderful product

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    I was up late one night watching tv and a infomercial came on about treager pellet grill. I told my wife I wanted one but was skeptical because I have never heard about pellet grills . Before I decided to purchase a treager I had done my research on pellet grills and load and behold I had seen that rec tec was on top of the list from different reviews. Me and the wife went camping and another camper had a treager, I asked him how he like the pellet grill he said he liked it but when he received it the auger was messed up and would not feed the pellets. I done my research on rec tec so I ordered the rec tec RT 680. I could not wait for it to get here I was so excited. All I can say it is the Cadillac of grills. The only downside to this is my wife works for one of the major charcoal companies. I just hope my rec tec does not cause me a divorce. I would highly recommend rec tec grills to anyone and everyone. The one other downside is should make a cook book and a temperature guide to come with it sometimes my internet goes down. But keep up the good work guys


  36. awesome

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    Bought this grill after doing some research. I made my decision to purchase based on their temperature control unit. So far I've cooked ribs, chicken, and a prime rib. All I can say is it's awesome. My five year old, who is a ketchup fanatic, said that the smoked chicken is so good that she can eat it without ketchup. That's huge praise from that one. I highly recommend the company and the grill. Customer service is top notch!


  37. Lov the Rec Tec Grill

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    So far smoked chicken and ribs and both turned out great!


  38. WOW! I never knew how good wood pellet grilling could be!

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    Amazing quality, service, and price. I have owned a Weber grill since my kids bought me one 20 years ago. She lasted but was on her last legs. Wanted to try my hand at smoking and a friend recommended Rec-Tec before I pulled the trigger on a Traeger.
    I read the reviews and it convinced me. Easy to use and set up and the results are amazing. My first test was a 7lb beer-butt chicken! Excellent and the temperature controls were spot on. Then I did ribs using the 3-2-1 method. So good. Then I did Halibut and scallops. People loved them. Finally I did a Leg of Lamb this weekend. Again, I love this smoker/grill. Rec-Tec for Life!


  39. Well Built

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    High quality. Excellent results. Makes everything easy and come out great. Much better smoker than other brands.


  40. Good food, great product.

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Costumer service is as good as it gets! I've had the grill for a few weeks and have used around 175 pounds of pellets. Ribs, briskets, tenderloin and pork butts. All have been great! My daughter made cinnamon rolls and we cooked them on it!


  41. very happy

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Easy to use, doesn't dry food unless you want it to. Week made


  42. Outstanding quality

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    I was very impressed with the sturdiness of the grill. I was also impressed with their packaging and instructions. The only thing I had issues with was that my hands were too big and had a lot of trouble tightening the bolts to the side tray, that was a bit tricky.
    I've used it several times in the past week for both high-temp, fast cook of steaks and low/slow ribs.
    Looking forward to using it much more and getting familiar with it's cooking "style"


  43. Love my R/T

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Still learning, and so different from a charcoal grill. Set it and leave it! Because of technology differences, am finding similar things might take a little longer than on my BGE, but that is the learning process and it does have many more options and the size of the 680 cooking surface is GREAT. A GREAT PRODUCT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EXCEPTIONAL. Well worth the investment.


  44. best money I ever spent on a grill/smoker

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    I am not one to normally do a review. I've now had the Rec Tec 680 for about 1 month. I've owned different models and styles of smokers over the years and never felt that I was very successful at smoking anything. I cannot describe how happy I was from the very first time I smoked a chicken on it two doing reverse seared ribeyes ribs beef and St.Louis Style to the Boston butt I'm actually doing as I write this. This smoker along with raised videos has made smoking absolutely easy I never thought that I would be able to successfully smoke anything and be as happy with it as I am with this Grill. If you're on the fence about spending this much money for Grill no matter whether it's a smoker or a grill I would tell you to spend the money between the warranty the customer service the quality of this thing it just makes life too easy and you will not regret having spent the money. Go Rec Tec


  45. DO NOT MAKE A MISTAKE

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    I have owned many gas grills in my time this is my first smoker pellet grill. Was hesitant my son inlaw has a smoker and he spends most of his time by the smoker baby sitting Damn what was I thinking. Thank God there is still truth in advertising. I searched long and hard before pulling the trigger on the 680, a little pricey but worth every penny almost bought a traeger but customer service swayed me. This is all they said it was,well built,fantastic customer service and it has a beginner smoking like a pro !!!! Many chicken wings whole chickens pork butts all AWESOME. The only bad thing is every BBQ family get together Im cooking but the put it on and leave still allows me horseshoes,swimming and enjoying the party until the praise comes rolling in. Thanks RecTec GREAT product. DO NOT make a mistake this is the grill to own


  46. 680 great grill so far

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    only cooked on 4 times did everything as directions said no problems cooked steaks at 450 d came out great also did burgers fine and a crown roast 6 wide at 225 5 1/2 hrs man was it tender.


  47. All purpose outdoor cooking monster

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    I'm going to leave it short and sweet. I've been grilling and smoking my whole life. I'm accomplished in the art of outdoor cooking. This grill/smoker just takes it to a new level without a lot of hassle or effort. As I've gotten older, that is a luxury I appreciate. Great for grilling, excellent for smoking. It will eat through some $$ on pellets if you grill/smoke as much as I do. The results are worth it.


  48. Awesome Grill

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    I had researched pellet grills for about a month before purchase, since I had only recently heard about this method of grilling. After looking at various models from different companies, I decided to go with RECTEC for the build quality of their components. Well the research paid off, and I'm more than happy with my grill selection, plus the bonus of the upgrades to the second generation 680. Although I have only had a few opportunities to use my new 680, I have been more than pleased with the use of use and the finished products I have prepared on the grill. I have recommended RECTEC to all my friends and co-workings, with some who own models from the competition, considering the switch to RECTEC.


  49. Better than expected

    Posted by on 11th Jun 2017

    cooks to perfection!

    Outstanding customer service experience!


  50. Very Happy!

    Posted by on 11th Jun 2017

    I am new to pellet cooking but very happy with everything so far. The grill is very well built as advertised. Assembly was straight forward and took an hour or so to complete. I have used it a few times and am gaining confidence and understanding on how to properly use it. Best results so far was on a t- bone steak reverse seared. I have been grilling for years and this was the best steak I have made in my life. The light smokey flavor was a winner. Thanks Rec Tec!


  51. juicy delicious

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2017

    This is my first pellet grill and I couldn't be happier it does what you advertise. I got the cold box with mine and one weekend I cooked hamburgers on the grill and put hot dogs in the cold box and everything turned out juicy delicious. My first cook was a brisket and it turned out perfect.


  52. this grill is Awesome

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2017

    It works exactly the way everyone said that it would. Simple instruction to get started. Maintains temperature precisely and looks great too.


  53. Very good value

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    A lot of bbq for $$ spent.
    I've had a Memphis so I have something to compare the Rec Tek with and I recommend it


  54. WOW!

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    I'm an old 'Stick Burner'. I have custom built many smokers in an effort to better control my fire/cooking temperatures. I am also a professionally trained PitMaster with over 10 years since my first competition. I no longer compete, but rather enjoy bringing good 'Q' to my family and friends. I got very tired of staying up all night tending coals before events, so I started doing my homework. This research brought me to the realization that it was time to make a move to Pellet Grills.

    As I started researching, I looked at all the smokers in this class. (Up to about $1500) Rec Tec stood out as the hands down leader on paper. So I called Rec Tec directly. One of the owners answered the phone! We visited for about 15 minutes and I placed my order.
    My smoker arrived promptly and I began the assembly immediately. Once the initial burn-in was completed, I put the smoker to work. In the 4 weeks that I have owned this smoker, I have smoked 2-Briskets and 5-Boston Butts. The smoker performed flawlessly.
    AND even better than that, I was well rested! I would put the Butts on @10:30pm and go to bed. The Butts woul be ready for foil by morning.

    I now have time to enjoy cooking without babysitting my smoker! I am a Rec Tec fan!

    Rec Tec's build quality is second to none. I placed thermometers/probes on the cooking grates with 3 across the back and 3 across the front looking for hot spots and I found none! The heat was within a couple degrees. The amount and quality of smoke is great as well.

    If you are looking for a cheap grill, go elsewhere. BUT, if you are looking for a quality built pellet smoker, your search has ended. I will put my Q up against anyone.

    Thank you Rec Tec
    Happy Smoking
    -Evan R


  55. Great!

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    Love my RecTec! Smoked my first pork butt this week and was amazed at how easy and wonderful it turned out. Very impressed!


  56. It does what it says it does

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    This smoker just plain works. I am still unhappy about abandoning my ole stick burner but it was time to embrace technology and I am glad I did. Temp control better than an oven is almost unfair to have . All the sleep I could have saved had I had this years ago is mind blowing. The smoke is different from pellets and an adjustment but if you are good at what you do then you will figure it out and make great smoked meats.


  57. Amazing product

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    I had debated for months on what pellet grill I wanted to buy. Finally decided to buy a Rec Tec and love it!! My wife hasn't had to cook a meal for 2 weeks. Worth the wait and every doller spent!


  58. Great first two weeks

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    I cannot leave a lot of details, as I am relatively new to using a smoker. I will say that the selling point for me, was "if you want to put a brisket or butt on it, and go out on the lake for the day..."
    Seriously. Set the temp, and it does the rest. Even my wife used it on her own this week while I was away.

    My only request so far would be...there should be pre-formed disposable aluminum inserts made to fit the grease bucket (like Weber does for gas grills). If someone can point me to them, I would call it perfect!


  59. Best Grill Ever!

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    I just bought my 2nd Rec Tec Grill. I have one in Colorado (they prefer electric grills bcz they won't always allow open flames due to Wild Fire concerns)......I am a grilling nut....just bought a second home in south Fla.......smoking fresh fish! best ribs, chicken, turkey...you name it.....so easy to use!! Put dinner on before you go to work and come home to mouth watering meal.......


  60. awesome grill i was so happy withmy mini i bought the 680 isnd couldnt be happyer

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    Couldn't ask for a better grill I hardly use the stove anymore.


  61. Absolutely the Best Smoker Ever

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    This smoker takes smoking meat to a whole new level. You don't have to worry about constantly feeding the hopper with wood to keep a fire going. The wood pellet feeder automatically does it for you. The food comes out delicious with a wonderful smoke flavor depending on how much smoke you prefer. The extreme smoke feature is the bomb. We love it and use it about 3 times a week. I love smoking meat and having it in the freezer so when guests come over we have ribs or pulled pork already ready. Did I say we love it? ;) Yes we do.


  62. Amazing grill

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    We recently purchased and received the Rec Tec 680. Upon arrival, setup was easy. The shear beauty of this grill went beyond our expectations. Smokes and cooks great. I also appreciate the great customer service too with prompt replies to calls, helpful cooking tips, etc. Top notch team. I've shared your website with friends.


  63. 5th and last Smoker ever!!!

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    I have had Propane, Charcoal and Electric smokers before
    and was not too dissatisfies with them until my son showed me his new Rec Tec smoker. I am blown away with the quality, simplicity and reliability of this smoker. It is in a world of it's own. I can set the temp and do what i want to do with my day. I do not have to baby sit my smoker!!! And all of the features, including the looks!, are amazing. I will never use another smoker.


  64. great product. simple and effective. beats the green egg hands down

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2017

    Great grill


  65. Best purchase EVER!

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    I shopped around for the best smoker for my needs, and the REC-TEC has made me happy I did. The construction of the cooker is outstanding, the temp is always just right, the add-on shelf is a huge help (do yourself the favor and buy it). Even the pellets I purchased from REC-TEC tasted better than other pellet cooked food I have had in the past. This smoker is worth every penny, and I genuinely appreciate that the company refuses to deal with retailers to keep costs even lower. I love my REC TEC! Having said that, I still do have my gas grill for a convenient searing grill, because I did not buy the searing kit. Best smoker ever, seriously.


  66. Love tbis grill

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    Setup and assembly was easy. Cooked bacon in it to season the grill as recommended for the first cook and it came out perfect. Have done ribs, chicken, pork loin all great. I have used a traditional stick smoker since I was a kid and never thought I would like this style grill but decided to buy it because I was tired of doing all night cooks for family events and being a zombie the next day. However I have found it's convenient, and with a garage fan pointed towards the grill I have been able to do all night smokes in the garage during bad weather without filling the garage with smoke. Overall great product. Hopefully my cold smoke box attachment arrives soon.


  67. ribs

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    Smoking ribs is a pleasure, flawless and possibly award winning. Costumer service is excellent . Best BBQ I ever owned


  68. WOW!

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    Only had the 680 2 weeks. So far have smoked baby back ribs, 3 Boston Butts, and 1 chicken. All exceeded my expectations! The first time I fired it up I smoked 2, 8 lb butts. I got nervous when they weren't done when I "thought" they should be. Ended up taking 17 hours to get them to 190; worth the wait. Only regret so far is I didn't pull the trigger and buy sooner!


  69. Awesome pellet Grill

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    I couldn't be happier with this grill. First, putting the grill together was a pretty simple process, it took me less than an hour to set it up. Next, starting the grill and running the burn-in went smoothly. The grill is self explanatory, hardly any reason for the instructions. The next day after the burn-in we did our first smoke and things couldn't have gone better. The grill heated evenly and the smoke put off by the pellets was great. I've smoked ribs, brisket, pork shoulder and chicken and they have all turned out great. Overall I would tell anyone looking for a pellet smoker to spend the little extra money and get a RecTec!!!!!


  70. So Far, So GREAT!!

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    It is my first experience with a pellet grill and it is amazing so far. It maintains and cooks at the set temperature and barely moves 1-2 degrees. It truly is amazing to manage now. It cooks very well. I have done racks of ribs, perfect! I have done ribeyes on the sear plates and they were amazing also!! Well done, Rec-Tec. I will review more when I have more experience.


  71. Just got it! What a unit.

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2017

    Most heavy duty. Not going to wear out anytime soon. Lots of heavy steel. Hardware is all stainless steel and oversized probably for what may only be needed. However...I do have one complaint. The leg bolts are too short. If assembled as instructed using both flat and lock washer, there is no thread left on the bolt for the nut. I took away the flat and barely had enough thread for the nut. When tight, only went half way into the nut. Should be about 5 mm longer at least. Rest of assembly went flawless. Again, all else is exceptionally well made and should last for many years.


  72. superior to Treager

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2017

    Owned a Treager before I bought this animal. The Treager is not even in this products league.


  73. FANTASTIC!

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2017

    I initially intended to purchase a Traeger mostly because my father in law has one and seemed overly pleased with it. However when I searched for the Traeger website a little lower on the search page I saw "don't make a $1000 mistake! I didn't really want to do that so I clicked it just to see what it had to say. I immediately liked the bullhorn handles so I started researching the grill. I went to Amazon and found it there along with pages of 5 star reviews. Even the negative reviewers found a way to praise the grill and mostly RecTecs customer service. since I could buy the Traeger locally I spent a few weeks trying to decide if the shipping cost was worth it. I have to say it absolutely was. The grill is amazing. Temperatures doesn't fluctuate at all. I've seen my father in law's Traeger fluctuate as much as 15 degrees one way or the other. 12 hour cooks and the amount of pellets used is hardly noticeable. In my opinion the perfect amount of smoke flavor. The grill is far superior at least in look and feel to the Traeger. Also larger than the one that is similarly priced.


  74. RecTeculous

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2017

    You need to stop reading these reviews and just get the grill already. I have been nonstop cooking on this grill since I purchased it. The assembly was easy with one person. It takes all the guess work out of grilling and the flavor is worth every penny. I also cant belive how well it maintains the temperature. I am officially done with charcoal/propane. Thank you REC TEC


  75. Best Grill You Will Ever Own

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2017

    This is the finest grill in the market. I bought one for my wife. That's right, I said I bought one for my wife. She absolutely loves this grill. Dinner and dessert, doesn't matter. Anything cooked on this grill comes out amazing. The sales staff, what a group of guys! Any questions you have these guys take time and explain everything. They know what they are doing at Rec Tec. Once you've enjoyed a meal that was cooked on this grill you won't eat another that was cooked on gas or charcoal. Yes, it's that good.


  76. Best Thing Ever

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2017

    Bought this grill after not having a very good experience with my Gig Green Egg smoking some ribs. Spent the better part of a Saturday afternoon trying to keep the temperature from spiking. So far I have made ribs (Myron Mixon style), beer can chicken, chicken wings, steaks, smoked sausages and hamburgers. ALL were excellent! This is probably the easiest grill I have ever used with the best results. I highly recommend you go to You Tube and watch the numerous cooking videos that Ray has uploaded, extremely helpful!


  77. makes traeger look antique

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2017

    Have used a Traeger pellet grill for 3 years and I can actually save this Rec Tec Grill is by far so much superior to Traeger.


  78. best price and quality in a pellet grill on the market

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I have been very happy with my pellet grill and i love it because i can set it and then go back when its time and the foor has been great.


  79. Best Smoker

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    From the first Rec Tec meal this grill has given me more satisfaction and tastier meals. It tops all grill I have ever used and that is many. I highly recommend this grill as it is sure worth the money


  80. excellent grill!

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I had the traeger jr and wanted something bigger. The quality of the Rec Tec is far superior!! Love it


  81. Best grill, period.

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    Far superior quality/customer service/and online support compared to others. Nothing you can't do, had mine for only two weeks now, have done steaks, burgers, sausage, pork loin, boston butt, while baking chocolate muffins, and casserole at same time.


  82. 680

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    WOW is a good start. It is everything as described. Sturdy, well built and easy to use. Customer service is outstanding along with nice videos to help through any problems.


  83. Ausome,, very well maid !!

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I'm so glad I brought the Ret Tec
    680 .
    Very impressed with it !!


  84. Smokin'

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    Early spring 2017, I was looking to replace my old grill and pallet grill/smoker was something I always wanted to own. Once I started my research, I came across an unknown "REC TEC" pallet grill. After seeing great reviews about the quality of the product and above all the customer service, it was an easy decision. I ordered the grill on May 8th and the same day got a phone call to assure that all customers get their utmost attention.

    By far the best constructed smoker IMO. It is super heavy and with 40 lbs hopper, you will never have to reload in the middle. I had some ribeyes and tenderloin steaks that was begging to be the first one to grace the grill. I would highly recommend this grill to anyone who is shopping for a grill/smoker.


  85. Worth Every Penny!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    Only had it for a little over a month and its awesome. Very well made, and customer support is without a doubt the best. Couldn't be happier.


  86. Solid, Well Built

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    Very nice Smoker , Sturdy not flimsy at all , Temps were very consistent on the 21 hour Brisket we just did. Set it and forget it , Wife picked this out I was going a different route , I was worried the Smoke would overpower everything but I was wrong , The taste was excellent , Smokey goodness there but just the right amount. I did research ahead and have a secondary unit for a reverse sear , which we tested on some tomahawks tonight . I am glad she talked me into this one.


  87. Excellent choice in a pellet grill

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    I was hesitant to spend this kind of money on a grill, but wanted to get a pellet grill. While there are a number of cheaper ones, if you go cheap you usually get cheap. This grill had high reviews and I really didn't see any negatives. A friend bought one a few months ago and had high praise for it. So I bought one. Delivery was relatively quick. It is heavy so it is good to have a friend help set it up. Assembly was easy has it was just installing the legs and adding the controller shelf , handles , and smoke stack. Have done 3 cooks on it so far, beef ribs, brisket, baby backs. All were fantastic. I have a pizza cooking while I am writing this. Bottom line, I highly recommend this grill. Customer service is excellent and they give you direct phone numbers and 24/7 response if needed. I have not had any problems but it is good to know someone is only a phone call away.


  88. Smoking made easy, get to sleep all night.

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    RT680 operates flawlessly. In 3 weeks, I have smoked a 16Lb brisket, 5 butts, a pork loin and a whole chicken. Except for needing bigger wheels, it is the perfect machine. I am fixing the wheel thing as we speak.


  89. Almost too easy

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    Had this grill for a little less than a month. So far have cooked ribs, pork butt, brisket, chuck roast, everything I do regularly on my other cooker. All have come out fantastic and the best part is not having to fool with temperature and fire management. This thing lets you concentrate on all the other elements of good barbeque without worrying about the temp. It will be spot on!!


  90. Rec Tec 680 does not disappoint

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    I researched for quite a while before making the decision to purchase a Rec Tec grill. All the reviews that I read pointed to this grill, and this company as the best in the industry. Now that I have purchased, and done about four cooks on the grill, I am definitely not disappointed in my decision. The grill I was sent has a finish coat issue with the lid upon arrival, and after one e-mail, I had an entirely new lid at my door in two days. I am ecstatic with my purchase, and recommend Rec Tec to anyone that I speak with about grilling.


  91. Great product! Great company!

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    This grill is everything it's cracked up to be!
    Super heavy duty. Accurate temp settings. No hot spots.
    Smoking food should not be this easy! Loved the assembly video. Very helpful.
    The only thing I would do differently is use hex head fasteners for a little easier assembly.
    Everything was exactly as they said it would be (and then some) once the order was placed.
    I highly recommend this product and this company.


  92. Easiest Smoker to cook with.

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    This smoker makes it easy to prepare your favorite meats. You don't need to worry about temp or fire. All you have to concentrate on is your recipe. Best smoker I have owned.


  93. Almost as advertised

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    Had my r t 680 app a month used it 3 times .Smoked 8 pound pork butt 12hrs 45min smoker did an excellent job with one exception i an some guest were disappointed there was little to no bark.I smoked from 225 to 240. I have seen on you tube many demo. IF Ron an all others got that dark bark they show then they pushed a button that i cannot find with this exception unit performed as advertised.Excellent customer ser.


  94. Rec Tec 680

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    I gave the rec tec 680 a 5 star rating due to my experience from start to finish. I by no means am a cook, I just wanted simplicity. Where did I start? Reading reviews on the interwebs as well as asking some friends. All reviews were more less speaking volumes about the customer service and a bit about the product. Next step was to call and speak to a rep @Rec Tec, well that went extremely well and made the purchase. Reciueved package and was surprised at the contents.(Thanks again to the staff). I immediately assembled the grill, put 40lbs of pellets, and turned her on for the hour! Next was the bacon for an hour. Next day put on a 12lb butt for 14hrs and for my first one it turned out amazing as I am being told. Experience with Rec Tec and their product is exceptional! Looking forward to being part of the family!


  95. Exceeded Expectations!

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    I seasoned the grill as recommended then the next evening I began to smoke a 13 lb brisket with 40 lbs of Rec Tec pellets in the great big stainless steel hopper. After 10 hours at 225 degrees I chose to wrap to speed up the stall. Cooked for another 2 hours until internal temp was 203 degrees. Let sit for just an hour in the au jus recipe on the Rec Tec YouTube channel. Great receive by the way! Served to 10 people and was told by many it was the best brisket they'd ever had. Thanks Rec Tec for making me look like a pro!


  96. Rec Tec 680

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    I weighed all options very heavily before purchasing this grill. I have been a stick wood cooker for the last 30 years and was very reluctant to change. I looked at other pellet grills but decided on the Rec Tec 680 for the weight and quality, what appeared to be the ease of cleaning, and the countless positive reviews not to mention the customer service. I called in several times to ask questions before purchasing and everyone I talked to was knowledgeable and very helpful. The assembly instructions are a little off but it is not hard to figure out. Thus far I have cooked burgers, steaks, brisket, and ribs twice and all to perfection. Nice flavor. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this grill to anyone who is interested in grilling/smoking meat consistently every time. The quality, simplicity of the product, and ease of operation cannot be beat!

    I purchased the REC-TEC 680 because of what I read about its construction. I was not disappointed at all! Super heavy gauge stainless steel for all the really hot parts is the right design choice to last. Every thing else is powder coated steel that looks really good and should hold up forever if it doesn't get gouged. The electronics were very straight forward to connect up and worked just like advertised. My first smokes have been both easy and outstanding! Ribs & Brisket so far.

    REC-TEC has been great to deal with. My order was packaged and sent from GA to the local delivery transfer depot in 3 business days. I was bummed with the local shipper/delivery vendor who truly didn't care if I ever got the thing. Took 2.5 weeks to go the last 25 miles. But that shouldn't be a problem for anybody outside of Connecticut.


  98. if you are thinking about this grill don't just get it you will love it

    I had a traeger grill​ and took back two of them in one week.
    This grill is everything that everyone says it is. It holds temp all the time and the food you can make will have people talking. I know the price scared me at first but this grill has a 6 year warranty that is incredible. I would go threw a grill every 3 years and you could never find parts for the grill after a year. This grill is all you will ever need what are you wanting for just buy it you will love it.

    Let me start off by saying i was getting nervous because of the shipping company. My Rec Tec sat at the shipping companies local warehouse for a week. Very frustrating to deal with them. But, once I received my Rec Tec i forgot all about that. This thing is awesome. We've made brisket, ribs, bacon, chicken, hot dogs, burgers even an apple desert all in the 1st 10 days of owning it. My 6 year old daughter now wants Rec Tec bacon everyday. We enjoy the ease of using it and the ease of cleanup. Definitely recommend this grill.
