  1. Great Smoker - easy to use!

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2017

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

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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!!

  5. 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.

  6. Killer Que Making Macnine

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2017

    This addition to my smoker arsenal moves to the front of the class. Tremendous quality, outstanding customer support, but most importantly...killer que!

  7. Fantastic

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2017

    Great smoker, great customer service. My grill was delivered damaged. I called Rec Tec and had a new grill within a week. They were absolutely great.

  8. #getone

    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.

    #getone #smokegoodmeat

  9. 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!!!!!

  10. review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    Good quality

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Awesome Product

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    Awesome product

  15. 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.

  16. Amazing!

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2017

    Great smoker.

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. Rectec grill

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2017

    The setup was very easy, only used it once so far cooked some salmon it was outstanding. Can't wait to use it again

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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!

  23. 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!

  24. excellant alternative to treager

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

    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

  25. great smoker

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2017

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

  26. 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 .

  27. 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.

  28. 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!

  29. easy

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    Great smoker, i really love it! It was a labor of love to put together!

  32. 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

  33. Great Grill, Great Customer Service!

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    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.

  34. Outstanding Grill

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    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.

  35. Great smoker, limited on grilling side.

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    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.

  36. Even a weekend cooker can be awesome

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2017

    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.

  37. Great Product

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    Very well built. Works exactly as described by company. Have recommended to friends and one is buying already.

  38. It's a snap to use

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    Simply stating that the Rec Tec is everything it was said to be and more. Little worried about overnight smoking but when I looked out my upstairs window at 3:00 AM it was sitting there smoking away minding it's own business.
    Easy assembling as well but the bolts were just a tiny bit short but we made them work. I use the smoke tube at times which makes for more smoke. Grill grates are a must and should be included. It is taking me time to adjust to not fussing over grilling. I love the dam thing!!

  39. Love it!!!!!

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2017

    Quality product, simple to use, every thing that i have made on it has turned awesome. The thought of spending that amount of money for a "grill" scared the hell out of me. I can tell you its worth every penny.

  40. Great grill!

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2017

    This is the best smoker-grill you will ever own. Just fill hopper and set temp and put in what ever you want the cook. Then walk away and no worries, no flare ups.

  41. Fantastic Smoker

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    I bought this smoker after reading several reviews. I must say the only negative thing about this smoker is the Bolts that were sent with it to assemble the product. Even without the Washers the bolts were about 3/8" too short. That being said a quick trip to Home Depot and bought the right bolts and I was off to smoking. Total assembly including a trip to Home Depot 2 hrs. and 15 mins. I have cooked both a Brisket and a Boston Butt and both came out perfect with Great Smoke Flavor and they were really moist. For my money I couldn't be happier.

  42. Rec Tec 680 is the "BOMB"

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    I absolutely love my new RT 680 thanks for making such an awesome pellet smoker!! The grill is very well made and the quality and craftsmanship that went into this grill is amazing. When you first open the lid you know you have a very well made product. If you are on the fence about buying one don't be, go ahead and make the purchase and you won't be disappointed!! Go ahead "MAKE YOUR FOOD GREAT AGAIN"!!!! Thanks to everyone at Rec Tec for an amazing grill and your amazing customer service and support!!

  43. Rookie Griller to Pitmaster

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2017

    This product is amazing. I have went from an average charcoal grill novice to preparing perfect 3-2-1 St Louis ribs, brisket, salmon and reversed seared steaks in 2 weeks. I use a smoke tube along with extreme smoke setting and get an amazing smoke ring. The grill grates are a great addition for all searing purposes. I have spent 40+ years in a manufacturing environment dealing with materials. That was the key factor in buying the REC TEC. Great quality and construction. Hats off to the Rec Tec group.

  44. Redundant bur, best grill i ever bought!

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2017

    I had a Weber gas grill and a Charbroil wood smoker, now I have my Recent Tec and that is all I will ever need.
    I do plan on getting a Mini for camping.
    If you are on the fence about buying one don't be, just get it you will love it!

  45. the best on the market

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    I new this was a pretty good smoker but once I started to unbox it and got my hands on it then the quality and craftsmanship really showed. totally remarkable trust me there is not another smoker on the market with the quality that in the Rec Tec 680 I've seen them all. this is by far the best smoker I've ever cook on. I am 63 I've been around the Horn a few times . thanks Rec Tec for making feel at home during my visit it was a fantastic trip.//

  46. Best Grill and Company!!!!

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    Not only do they have the best grill, they are the best company I have dealt with in 45 years. They are all about customer service and satisfaction. You can't go wrong with this grill and the company that stands behind it.

  47. love it

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    It's been great so far only 2 weeks

  48. Good time to take the Bull by the horns if looking for an awesome grill

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    Grill arrived in a timely manor. Packaged with care !.Solid build and easy to assemble. Grill maintained set temperature unless of course your one to peek

  49. Just order it

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    I waited for 8 months to pull the trigger on this. Assembly was super easy it took about an hour. I went with the 680 and I will tell you that this thing is no joke! If you want to elevate your backyard game order now! I have had mine for about a month and I have made baby backs, spatchcock chicken, beef short ribs, wings, cabbage, steaks, pork porterhouse, corned beef, hamburgers, corn on the cob and baked potatoes ALL HAVE BEEN AMAZING!
    Thanks RecTec!!
    My only regret is wasting 8 months thinking about placing my order!

  50. Holds the heat

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    I love this grill. It holds the heat and is not a pellet hog....Gave my Yoder Ronny kids and oarjwd my Camp Chef. Thank you for building a quality item....Smoke On!

    Love the REC TEC. Very easy to assemble and was simple to start cooking. HIGHLY RECOMMED because of the customer service and quality of the smoker.

  53. Awesome flavor with pellet grilling

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    I was a skeptic until I tried ribs from a pellet grill. Hands down the Rec-Tec pellet grill is built to last. Solid construction with high quality stainless steel. You will not be disappointed :)

  54. Great Quality

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    This grill is built like a tank! Very impressed with how it is built and the quality of material. I can tell that this grill is going to stand the test of time. There is nothing flimsy or cheap on this thing. It is well worth the investment!

    Did a bunch of research and kept coming up rec tec. It's a bit of a leap of faith not being able to put your hands on it but well worth it.

  56. Best Smoker Ever!

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    The communication from the time I ordered the grill to the arrival was an experience that was 5 stars! Very easy to put together. Looks great with chrome the bull horns. Best grill I have ever had and I have owned them all. The ease of operation was amazing. I have had my REC TEC 680 for 2 weeks and have cooked, Hamburgers, Chicken, Baby Back Ribs and a Brisket. All have turned out great the cooking was even and the flavor was awesome! A definite must have for the Smoking enthusiast!

  58. RECTEC Grills deliver great tasting smoked meals with minimum time and effort

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Spent month researching pellet smokers and finally pulled the trigger and bought a RECTEC 680. After using a propane smoker for years the RECTEC is a great improvement where I do not have to hover and watch and constantly adjust temperatures

  59. I love this grill!

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    I've owned many different types of grills and smokers but this one is my favorite. Easy to use and cooks very evenly.

  60. Great Smoker

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    We've had our RT-680 for one week now and I've cooked four different meats. Baby back ribs, filet mignon steaks, hamburgers and I've got chicken smoking right now. all turned out great. Quality smoker. It was lacking the spare fuse and igniter that the directions said were included but no big deal. You will love this smoker

  61. RecTec - When you're serious about a grill.

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    First off not enough can be said about the grill itself. Super durable, highest of quality parts, engineering, and over all fit and finish. The product is simply amazing. But, you can have a great product, but how's the staff and support? Three words, "Second to None." Putting that in quotes so you can quote me later! The RecTec folks are amazing. My product was damaged during shipping, but a simple call to support, and new parts were on the way.

    I've been using my RecTec 680 now at least 3 times a week, and wish I was home to use it even more. My wife and kids love it, almost as much as me. Just have to say thank you to the RecTec team, and can't wait till the next bbq.

  62. awesome!

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Super Quality

  63. Won't Go Back to Gas or Charcoal

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    Everything works great --- Just the right amount of smoke imparted to the meat. Just finished a Tri-Tip (not well known to you Easterns) --- results best flavored one yet. Family came by last week -- did a brisket (12 hours) -- tender as could be. Gave my electric smoker to one of the kids (too much smoke taste for me). Good job Rec Tec.

  64. Outstanding Smoker

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    This is the best residential smoker I have ever seen. Fantastic quality and amazing Temp control. No need for a smoker tube as this beauty will do one hell of a job below 220* smoking you food!!! Absolutely the best smoker money can buy. You will not be disappointed.

  65. Rec Tec RT 680

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    Man we could not be happier with our RT 680 a must have...We had some shipping issues with thrid party Rec Tec made it right great customer service...Thank you Rec Tec

  66. Taking up Smoking ...

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    Very happy with the value for money with the RT-680 and have served up some cracking pork ribs, beer-can chicken, tri-tip and lamb rack. Still to master brisket. Have found better results leaving (Rec Tec) recipes to cook just a little longer than that recommended.

    I find the RT-680 works better if you don't let it run out of pellets...!

  67. Engineered Tough

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    If you compare this to a Traeger, its not even a fair comparison. It is built so much more sturdy. The equivalent Traeger weighs 50-75 pounds less. Rec Tec is super simple, holds heat extremely well and the food is amazing.

  68. Everything just tastes better!

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    Been looking into a pellet smoker for some time. Finally pulled the trigger with my RT 680. No more hassle with the barrel, charcoal and wood and having to control the heat for long cooks. With the extreme smoke and recently purchased pellet tube I can add more smoke if I choose. Everything just tastes better with the RT 680 and I am very happy with my purchase.

  69. worth the money

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    The grill performs as advertised which is saying something ,given the state of things today. I have smoked the best ribs and brisket ever. The temp stays within the 5 degrees as advertised and for 12 hours for my longest cook to date , rather amazing. The setting for extra smoke is a great option. This has been a better experience than expected !!!
    I highly recommend this grill/ smoker......


    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    This is one heavy duty do it all smoker,grill,oven,convection oven. It took me and a buddy less than an hour to put together. It started up just by a push of a button. Followed the break in and seasoning instructions without a hitch. Started my first cook at 180 degree's and was not able to maintain the 180 setting it wound get to 235-240 and that was the lowest it would go. That night I emailed GM Ben Lesshafft with the problem. The following morning I had the solution. The minimum feed rate of 16 was to high for the Las Vegas heat it was at least 105-107 degree's that day. Ben sent me a video link that showed me how to decrease the minimum feed rate to 12 and not a problem since.The problelm was solved in less than 3 min. The grill is great and the follow up care outstanding. Also enjoy the REC TEC cooking video's.

  71. Amazing Smoker

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    The RecTec is built like a tank, and it looks amazing on the patio. I admit that it takes some time to get used to smoking on the RecTEc, but that would be the case for any new smoker. The management team provides their cell phone numbers when you buy a RecTec grill. I called one evening due to an issue that I was having with the grill, and I was shocked that they answered on the first ring on a weekend evening. They are amazing and stand by their product. You will not get this level of customer service with any other company. The more that I have used the RecTec the more that I appreciate the quality of the grill. If you learn to trust the RecTec, it will make you look like a BBQ genius.

  72. New Pellet Griller

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I've been wanting a pellet grill for a long time. I was tired of foil packs of wood chips on the gas grill. I decided to go with the RecTec because it had good reviews and sounded to be be more solidly built than many others. That, and the price point was more in reach of what The Boss would allow.

    Assembly wasn't too bad once I figured out how to deal with the slightly short leg bolts. Replacing the nuts and lock washers with All-Metal lock nuts did the trick. Overall fit and finish was good.

    I've had it for about a month cooked with it a few times with good results. Bacon & hamburgers on the Grill Grate to season the grill were excellent. (Did a reverse sear) I did a pork loin and chicken breasts for pulled meat that everyone seemed to enjoy. Pork chops and steaks were also good; again with the reverse sear. Penzy's Barbecue 3001 is our family's favorite rub so far. One of these days I want to do a pig roast.

    I like the extreme smoke feature on the controls & have used it a lot. I bought the 200# startup pellets and have been pleased so far. However, I want to experiment more with different pellets to see if they produce more smoke.

    The grill cover is a good fit and well made. It was a little tight when I first unpacked it, but after a couple of days in the sun it became much easier to use. I highly recommend getting one with the grill.

    I look forward to a lot of happy weekends of smoke with my RecTec.

  73. Best company ever

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I broke a part even admitting this Rec Tec covered it. Great guys fun staff

  74. 5 Year Wait was Well Worth it for The Rec Tec

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I have had the pleasure of cooking on The Rec Tec for about 8 years at my Father in Laws Cookout Gatherings and have been salivating to get one of my own since. I have been cooking professionally for about 30 years now and have to say without a doubt that this is The Greatest piece of Equipment ever. The smoke flavor is off the charts, the temp control is on the money and I have not even had to use it but reading online post of the Customer Service of Raymond Carnes is beyond Unparalleled in the service industry. You buy this for the tank of a smoker that it is and you love it for the people that stand behind it!

  75. great support and smoker

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2017

    Had problems with the trucking company, they were 3 days late and lost the pellets that were packaged with the smoker.
    Called rec-tec and they handled the problem immediately. Used the smoker twice, and would not trade it for any other.

  76. Love my new grill!

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2017

    I've had my REC TEC grill for a few weeks now and I love it! Set up and getting started were easy. Manual doesn't say to season with bacon before your first use but I saw that mentioned on the FB page so I tried it. 350 for 45 minutes. So far I've made pork chops, salmon, sausages, chicken breasts, and grilled veggies and they were all amazing! Only complaint is that I burned my forearm on the edge of the lid while opening it, but that's because I'm short :)

  77. best smoker ever i

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2017

    I have had many smokers from backwards to Pits and spirit and also how built smokers far this one exceeds All expectations absolutely love this grill if you were in the market for a grill should definitely put this one on your list

  78. High quality product makes amazing food

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2017

    My father bought a RacTec and I used it when I was visiting his home. I had a Big Green Egg and a Traeger, but I immediately knew I had to get myself a Rec Tec. It's heavy-gauge stainless-steel construction and its computer-controlled thermostat, combined with a 40-pound fuel hopper, make it the easiest smoker I've ever used. You literally set it and forget it until the meat reaches temperature. It is so easy to cook low and slow and the food is unbelievably delicious. Plus the grill looks really cool. I'm the envy of friends and neighbors. I highly recommend getting one!

  79. BBQ made easy!

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2017

    Easy to have BBQ and visit with friends; do not have to stoke the coals and baby sit the fire to have great BBQ

  80. Great product!!

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    I have cooked a beer can chicken that turned out great. Very moist and tender. The steak was also very good. I am glad I finally bought the RecTec.

  81. Best purchase made in a long time and the wife EVEN AGREES!!!!!!

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    I looked at Traeger and a bunch of other brands before I decided on the Rec Tec which was a little more money but I'm so happy that I chose the Rec Tec. What was hard for me is i have seen some of the others but was just able to read about Rec Tec on line. Once I got the rec tec there was no question I made the right choice. This thing is built so much better it heats up superfast. I've made several woodfired pizzas, garlic bread, chicken, steak, ribs, asparagus you name it. Their customer service is amazing just like it said online. Super friendly super knowledgeable I try to look for anything and everything to grill every day since it's so easy. What's funny is when it showed up, my wife was asking me what the heck did you buy? she was not pleased until I showed her all the stuff that I could do and this is the first grill my wife was actually Happy with. She's always trying to take over the cooking now too. Oh yeah even makes great chocolate chip cookies

  82. excellent product makes grilling easy

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    Just cooked a brisket over night. The smoke ring was awesome, the taste was awesome. It was almost effortless! I would recommend this product to Anyone! Don't even need to be a master griller to use it!

  83. Awesome Smoker/Grill

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    Discovered Rec Tec by watching You Tube as was looking at Traeger. Then Rec Tec came up for viewing and the comparison with their smoker vs the other convinced me to buy Rec Tec. I like my Masterbuilt but Rec Tec does things Masterbuilt cant do. Leg assembly and bottom shelf assembly small problem: been a Millwright by trade, I called the company and told bolts were quarter inch too short, the bolt comes halfway through the nut. I was told to remove lockwasher. Not a good thing to do. Bottom shelf, angle iron too small, had to use needle nose vice gripes to hold the nut. Overall outstanding smoker grill and proud to show it to family and friends.

  84. res tec

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    impressed with the construction. does everything you said it would. I have a pellet grill from a other company that has performed well but this one is three steps above one. I look forward to many years of cooking on a rec tec.

  85. can't keep my wife away for my grill

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2017

    Loving this grill the problem is that because it is so easy my wife wants to cook everything on the grill.


    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    We love everything about it have used almost every single day since purchase for cooking jerky steaks prime rib chicken pork and pizza

  87. Can't stop using this thing!

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Since getting my Rec Tec Grill, we have yet to turn our double oven on. And i have only used my gas cook top about 2 times also. This thing does everything i need and want it to do. I have been recommending your grill to all my friends and family! Thank you for making such an Awesome piece of equipment!

  88. Rec Tec 680 smoker

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Smoker works great and super easy to use. I like the that the construction is strong. A few things that should be addressed is the fire pot. would be nice if it had a clean out for ashes. The hopper should also have a easy clean out for changing out pellets. Finally, when I finally received my front folding shelve it was damaged on the hinge. Box was not damaged but the shelve was. Had to try and bend it back to get it to work. Have pictures if anybody want's to see. All in all great smoker and food taste great. Just the little thing that bother me.

  89. rec tec grill

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    Can't thank your company enough for such a great experience that this grill has brung to my family and friends who stop buy just to see this grill and of course to taste the unbelievable food that comes from this grill. Thank you!!

  90. Excellent Product and Service!

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    I purchased the RecTec RT-680 and have loved it. The assembly was straightforward. The instructions were very well done and all hardware was well packaged. Materials are very high quality. I'd recommend a ratchet set for the install, as stated in the assembly YouTube video. I seasoned the grill by cooking some bacon at 350 for ~ 25 minutes, which was a fun cook and produced some delicious smoky-favored treats. Then I tried my hand at 2 racks of ribs. I've never cooked ribs before so I anticipated some issues, but the grill is so effortless. I simply put in the temp setting and followed the recipe on the RecTec site. Restaurant quality ribs, no question! I then wanted to test out the grilling ability at high temps and reverse seared some amazing ribeye steaks with the purchased sear kit. Works just as advertised and gave me a great sear. So, this thing has versatility.

    With my first cook I had an issue with the temperature climbing up about 10-15 deg from the set point. I called in and a very knowledgeable employee walked me through a quick computer trouble shoot, immediately fixing the issue. This took < 3 min. He didn't transfer me, put me on hold, ask me stupid questions, it was amazing. When have you ever called a company and had them solve a problem for you in under 3 minutes. I'd guess never.

    I had a hard time choosing between the RT-680 and the RT-300. I cook for just my wife and I and occasionally friends. I called in probably 5 times and spoke with various employees who were very friendly and gave me their personal experience with both models. No one tried to up-sell me, just gave honest advice. I chose the larger model to give me the ability to cook both protein and sides when preparing dinner. I'm happy with my decision. I'd advise the smaller version only if you'll take advantage of its portability.

    I can't remember when I've purchased a product and been more happy with it. This is a solid product, but I'm even more impressed with the quality of the people behind it. Needless to say, I highly recommend you buy yourself one of these. You'll be glad you did.

  91. Fantastic smoker!!!

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    I have had a great smoker for many years( a Lang 48), but it required a lot of attention. Purchased a REC-TEC 680 and could not be happier! This smoker is fantastic and you can just start it and forget it. Temperature control is amazing!!!

  92. A smoking tank

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    This thing is built like a military tank. I checked out the competition and found it to be lacking in build quality. They felt cheap and flimsy. Of course i could not "feel" the Rec Tec so i looked at videos and decided to take a chance. Worth every cent.

    So does lt cook? Absolutly as advertised. Pleanty of beautifull blue smoke and sdt it and forgetit temperature controll.

    First rack of ribs was unbelievable.

    Fo it and youll never look back

  93. Super Pellet Grill

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    Great product! Enjoying the ease of set it and forget it. Well made. Great company. Couldn't ask for more in a pellet grill.

  94. Again, my son was right by suggesting the Rec Tec...he's so smart!

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2017

    I was really torn between a ceramic type grill, a new fancy gas grill or a pellet grill. Thankfully our son bought a mini Rec Tec a while back and kept after me to get the 680. After much research and actually listening to our son for a change I went with the 680 and now I not only am producing wonderful meals I also have a new hobby and for a retired guy that's a real plus. Guess I should have been listening to our son all along, he's pretty smart after all!

  95. versatility and performance driven

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2017

    I have many smokers, charcoal, wood, gas and electric. They are vertical, offset, water, etc., but all require adjustment, maintenance through the cook. Most only perform well in low wind and moderate weather. But the Rec-Tec has so far proven to be a versatile workhorse capable of cooking 90 plus pounds of meat in any kind of weather and finishing at the expected times. I'm getting great bark and excellent smoke ring. I admit I've never taken to pellet cookers in the past but the Rec-Rec has turned me into a believer. I can't tell you how many nights I've spent maintaining temps and smoke on my other smokers. With the Rec-Tec I can actually get some sleep on all night cooks. What a concept!! I do events and cater on location. The Rec-Tec is sturdy, well built and very easy to roll on and off a trailer. The auger and firebox require very little power which also is helpful. There is one trade off and even that can easily be overcome. The Rec-Tec can achieve and maintain internal temperatures of 500 degrees which is much hotter than most of my other smokers. However, at high temps, it does not throw much smoke. Even this can easily be remedied with the use of a 12 inch pellet tube. With this simple solution, the Rec-Tec becomes an awesome smoke filled Pizza Oven that can cook four 18 inch pizza's at the same time. I have stones on both the upper and lower racks for that purpose. In addition to traditional BBQ, it's also an excellent choice for cooking paella for a huge crowd.

  96. Fantastic product

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    I really researched smokers but kept coming back to this one.
    I am very happy I did. We had a small freight problem which was not there fault but the took care of it. Packaging was excellent and assemble easy. I highly recommend this company and its products.

  97. Rookie approval!

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    Couldn't be more happy with my Rec Tec! Just the right amount of gadgets to get the grilling/smoking done! Makes the rookie(me) look like a seasoned Pro!
    The only suggestion for improvement that I would have is to supply bolts with a hex head rather than Phillips. Other than that, I love everything about it.

  98. Best grill ever

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2017

    Very happy with my new purchase. Never heard of this grill until my buddy told me about it. Every pellet grill review rated the Rectec number 1. I would agree!

  99. bad ass piece

  100. The "PERFECT" smoker/grill

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2017

    I cannot say enough good about this grill. The quality, temperature control, customer service, and most of all the taste of the food is amazing. This is the "PERFECT" grilling and smoking tool.
