My grill arrived last week and was packed very well with no damage. Some items were missing and are backordered. I was impressed with the quality of the grill and assembly hardware but there is no extra so don't loose any. The included tools are the bare minimal especially the screwdriver so you may want to use your own. Also,don't overtighten the leg bolts as it will dent the grill housing. It took about an hour to assemble,not hard. Did the initial burn in and cooked wings the same night. Held temps within 5 degrees and the wings turned out great. It took a few tries to get the WiFi to synch up to my router but once it did,the App worked very well with several helpful features. I'm looking forward to grilling/smoking all summer long. Thanks Rectec

I saw my first Rec etc in Augusta, Georgia about a year ago. Shopped and looked at other brands fora few months. I decided this was the best on the market, amazing grill, super service. You get what you pay for. I love this grill. Join the Rec Etc group on facebook and you will be cooking 24/7 just to keep up with some of the recipes.

As a previous rec tec mini owner for more than two years, I expected this grill to be fantastic, but it exceeded my expectations. I am amazed at the smoke output of this thing! It heats up super fast. The wifi controller is fantastic! It's a perfect size as well! Rec Tec created a fantastic product and I highly recommend it!

RT-590 Well worth the wait

Stephen Rich -

RT-590 is the perfect size for me. So far I’ve cooked pork butt, racks of pork ribs, tritip, steaks, whole chickens and they’ve all came out to be the best I’ve ever cooked. I am a novice smoker, but the results have my hard core traditional smoker friends considering crossing over. I am cooking more because it’s easy to use. Set it up go to the pool and watch your temps from the app.

Build Quality: legs, wheels, fire pot, deflector, grates, drip pan are 5 Star. The actual cooking chamber I would give 3 stars as the quality decreases some in stainless quality and thickness. Mine had a small cosmetic blem on on the exterior stainless. Would like to see a more insulated fit on the lid. The plastic overlay on the LCD screen was wavy and not uniform. My order was shorted, cover, t shirt, and small second shelf. Deflector vents are also on back order. Rec Tec was aware of this and I was notified. Now with all this being said... this is a nice grill for what you pay and l highly recommend it. I have already cooked a Boston butt, hamburgers, and a reverse sear ribeye. The flavor was superior to my gas Weber. The team at Rec Tec is awesome to work with.

I bought this grill for my husband as an early Father’s Day gift and he loves it! He likes that he is able to set the temperature and walk away. He even grilled a frozen pizza on it!
