  • BFG is a BIG bang for the buck!

    Posted by Coy Goodnight on 15th Apr 2019

    This is just what I have been waiting for! The perfect size for catering and entertaining. I'm very impressed with the craftsmanship and potential durability of this, I've went over it with a fine tooth comb and you can see the amount of thought and planning that went into the design.
    The BFG holds every characteristic of the smaller 700 Bull, efficiently operating on about the same pellet use scale, holding rock solid temperatures and quickly recovering cabinet temperatures after the lid has been opened for prolonged periods of time.
    The addition of the two piece drip pan with more slope and dual drip buckets are a welcome addition. The wide stance competition cart and front folding shelf are also welcome additions that come with the unit at no additional cost.

    Absolutely love it so far. I've only had three cooks on it so far, but it met and exceeded my expectations. PID is amazing. When you set it to a certain temperature it does not vary. Hope to be using it a lot this summer.

  • BFG - Amazing!

    Posted by Joe on 10th Apr 2019

    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!

    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???

    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.
    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.

  • Cannot Wait for BFG

    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.
