Below are some undisputed facts that prove why REC TEC Wood Pellet Grills are the premier grill in the industry:


1.     Build Quality

This grill is built like a tank. REC TEC utilizes a combination of high-quality stainless steel designed to last a lifetime. They feature a commonsense design that doesn’t have gimmicky features that create weak points, making our grills something you can pass down to your family as a cherished heirloom filled with years of memories. The ultimate outdoor grill by a mile, we encourage you to buy once and buy right instead of buying inferior products over and over. 


2.    Components

REC TEC features stainless steel grates, firepots, heat deflectors, and drip pans. They also include a stainless steel logo and smoke cap, with stainless steel hardware as well. We have never in the history of our company had a firepot fail on us; we’ve even driven over it with a dump truck and a steamroller (we’re not kidding)! Our automated self-cleaning shutdown mode virtually eliminates the need to clean our firepots. Additionally, we added an interior light for those late-night cooks. REC TEC also utilizes a ceramic ignitor rod that won’t rust or corrode that’s been rated for up to 100,000 lighting cycles.


3.    Warranty

REC TEC offers the best warranty in the industry, bar none. The RT-700 comes with a 6-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that is absolutely unmatched by anyone in the industry. If you encounter a problem, we’re going to make it right. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s that simple. 


4.    Temperature Control

With the most precise controller on the market, our proprietary Smart Grill Technology™ is designed to maintain temperatures to your desired set point. Also, with WiFi capability, you can control your grill from virtually anywhere! This gives you unmatched control, flexibility, and precision. With your REC TEC reliably holding temperature, you can cook anything you want without worrying about the wild temperature swings that competitor pellet grills struggle with.


5.    Customer Service

You simply will not find a company that offers better customer service than REC TEC. Would you believe that each customer receives both co-founders’ cell phone numbers with their purchase? Well it’s true, and it’s our duty to make you feel as if you’ve truly become part of the REC TEC family.

    Very excited and satisfied with my Purchase

    Glenn -

    I've been doing research for a while decided I was going to go with RecTec. When I finally decided to pull the trigger I saw they came out with the Bull RT-700. I'm so happy that I chose this grill. It does everything I wanted and more. It was very easy to assemble and get started. Been using it for almost a week now and its been perfect. Customer service is outstanding, I called the other night just because I had a few questions in general and they were happy to talk. I think this unit is hands down the best bang for the buck!!!

    The Real Deal

    Grady Dunn -

    I did my homework & decided the RT-680 was the best on the market for all the right reasons. Only thing I could complain about was the Georgia Red lid. Called to ask if they would ever offer color options. Was told to hang on for a couple weeks. Low & behold 2 weeks later the RT-700 is debuted with more stainless, 2 wired meat thermometers, free shipping, wi fi w/ phone app AND a Black Lid. Ordered mine w/ all the accessories. Delivery was quick & assembly was a breeze. Today is showtime. Smoker quickly achieved desired temp & continues to stay on the mark. Plenty of smoke & pellet usage is very efficient. Only issue I’ve had is w/ phone app which I will inquire about Monday. May be my distance from my router. For now the ribs & chickens smell out of this world. My only problem is what to do with all my time. No tending the fire & watching the temp. It’s all on Rec Tec “automatic”.

    Awesome grill/ smoker

    Brian C -

    Been reading reviews for months and finally decided to order the new RT-700. Was a little scary due to this being a new model but I pulled the trigger and could not be more happy. Received mine yesterday and put it together last night. I did the initial burn in this morning then cooked wings for lunch and meatloaf for dinner. I thought everything was great but more importantly the wife thought is was outstanding as well. We all know if mommy is happy everyone is happy. Going to cook a few racks of ribs tomorrow - can't wait..... This is so much easier than my previous smoker and cleanup is a breeze - just brush the rack and swap out the foil on the trey below it.

    I thought that the 680 was an awesome smoker and it is. But the Bull 700 is even better! Put it together last Saturday and smoked on Sunday. The Bull hands down is the best smoker/grill on the market today! Control panel is simple and easy while at the same time very high tech. Shut down mode is 3 stages... Temp-Fan- Aug. But it all made sense after having it explained.<br>But most of all, the crew at Rec Tec is always so helpful and kind. They are the best!<br>Chicken turned out great buy the way. Being retired with the Bull is the best!

    new rt700

    Lucas Darr -

    This is my second Rec Tec grill. First one was the rt 680 . After I saw the rt700 I decided it was time for an upgrade . I have owned the 680 for 6 years . Great unit . Many, many hours of cooking on it. Sold it for about half of what I paid for it new, so was happy about that too. Purchased the bull in feb and received it in March ahead of schedule. So far very happy. Did the burn in then, next day cooked a full rack of spare ribs and a trimmed brisket flat. Turned out great. Much better temperature control than my 680. Less swings in temp . Was 28 degrees and windy out and held temp great. WiFi worked good too but then I changed location of grill and I think it is too far from my router. Going to try a WiFi range extender next . Looking forward to many more cooking trials with it.

    Went with the BULL based on the performance of the 680, customer service reputation, and value. Have had it a couple weeks now and it has performed as advertised. Best part is being able to leave the house and monitor your long cooks through the WiFi controller.

    Great Product!
