Based on the 5 I own

Bill Wyko -

Based on the 5 Rec Tec's I own and 8 years of use, I can tell you, this is going to be an amazing grill. I see the controller, quality stainless steel and the amazing competition base is in use which I have on my grill. It's obvious this will be yet another Rec tec with superb quality, dead on temp control and rock solid easy to roll base. You can bet It'll be yet another I will add to my arsenal of Rec Tec's. FYI, my 680 is on it's way to being 8 years old, It still works perfectly like it did on day one. I've already done your research, you can't go wrong here, click buy now, thank me later.

Go BIG or go home

Scott Haddon -

I’m am beyond excited on anticipation of receiving the 2 BFG’s I ordered. That’s right, I ordered 2, I own a restaurant and use 1 680 and 1 700. With the addition of these bad boys I can open up catering in a flash. I was hoping for this to happen as the 2 grills I have are used daily to serve all kinds of delicious smoked meats. Chicken halves, leg quarters, butts for BBQ, ribs, brisket, and even smoked sausage for breakfast. I have not had to replace any parts on my first 680 I purchased over 2 years ago and it has been a champ! I smoke butts over night. Smoke chicken n other meats during the day, 5 days a week. It has not let me down! Unbelievable 6 year warranty bumper to bumper and from what I can see in the BFG’s quality built specs, this will handle all my needs. 2400 square inches of cooking space for this price and the ease of cooking with pellets, showstopper! I can go on & on but you can’t go wrong with Rectec! By the way, when you call them, you talk to a real person not a machine. Check them out ROCK SOLID COMPANY

Cannot Wait for BFG

Anthony Pascuma -

I like others have had my RT680 for almost 6 years now! I too was looking at other companies for a larger smoker as on occasion, I am asked to cater and provide food for various work functions. The BFG came out right on time.,! I currently live in Germany and brought my 680 over here, I have had zero problems with my grill in 3 years of consistent use - even during winter snow storms.. I smoke year around and cook consistent quality brisket, ribs, pork belly and butts and have smoke whole hogs up to 110lbs on my 680 - I am more than excited to see what more I can produce in the BFG . The wonderful constomer service by the RECTEC Team was a primary consideration - this isn’t a call center but real people who help you thru any issue with your smoker. No front companies, no BS, just great Americans selling great products! If you are on the fence, give them a shot, in six years of use, I have replaced an igniter and a couple of fuses due to 240 power over here.. otherwise flawless cooking, control and customer service!

I bought my 680 5 or 6 years ago. I've only had a couple issues with it and the customer service was second to none. Cost me nothing to resolve. I love the way it cooks and I use it all the time. I have recommended it to friends who have in turn bought one or two. The ones they've bought and their friends have bought I've probably helped sale at least 10 or more. Not one person has regretted buying there grill. I've since purchased a different brand only because I needed a bigger smoker. It's a good smoker but I'm in the process of trying to sell it so I can buy the BFG RT -2500. Thanks Rec-Tech for great products and customer service.

Man, I just bought the Bull 700 before Thanksgiving. I'm loving it so far but this big grill I would prefer to own. Anyone looking for a 4 month old Bull???

Big Freaking Grill

Alex Heath -

I own a RecTec 680 which is arguably the best and certainly the most consistent grill of the 7 smokers I use. I have upgraded it to the wifi system which has been a game changer. It is used commercially and there have always been a few things about that irritated me. BUT every issue I've ever had with it is definitely addressed with the 2500. Finally its a grill that is tall enough. It has an easy clean shelf unlike the "tr" brand and the "ydr" brand. It has the competition cart as standard. It has space for hotel pans side by side. The paint wont fade. It can now cook everything I need without having to use 2 or 3 pits. <br>If it cooks as evenly as the 680 my life will forever be changed for the better. Thank you RecTec, your service and designs are winners.

BFG - Amazing!

Joe -

Gave the neighbor my 680 for helping me set up the BFG (needless to say he's happy as hell lol), LOVE it. Did my first cook with it this past weekend, nice packer brisket (18 pounder) and 4-5 slabs of baby backs. Came out amazing and the smoker is a BEAST! GREAT job team Rec Tec as always, couldn't be happier!!! KUDOS!
