  • Best freakin’ grill! Look no further

    Posted by Mark Moskowitz on 14th Jun 2019

    BFG 2500 should stand for best freakin’ grill. This smoker is a game changer and don’t be intimidated by size. The extra capacity is worth it for scaling up for big gatherings. It still delivers when smoking just for the family too. Burns cleanly and temps are steady whether smoking for 5 hrs or 12 hrs-plus. The materials are high quality. The drip pans are set at good angle and make for less mess. Lastly, the Bull Handles just affirm that this is one solid smoker that stands out. Thanks Rec Tec!

    This is my 6th purchase and obviously, the most expensive of my grill purchases from RecTec. Well, it was well worth the money! I even sold my Memphis Elite after I received my BFG 2500. This grill is huge but the PID control is as accurate as my RT700.
    There was alot of detail put into the pre production phase. Good job guys! I want to thank Ben in assisting with my purchase and Adam for taking care of me with any question or need I had. I have referred or saved at least 7 people from buying the inconsistent Traeger and have had them go RecTec. My next purchase will be the "Wyldside". Summary, don't bother researching other pellet grills, Become e member of the RecTec family

    I've been using the RT680 for the past couple years and absolutely loved it... except when I needed to smoke more than a couple briskets at the same time. The BFG was the answer! Build quality and features are excellent. At this point, the only thing it is missing is the hundreds of hours of sweet smoke that built up in my RT680!
    Without a doubt, the best feature of all Rec Tec grills is the customer service... second to none. Both my RT680 and BFG RT2500 were damaged by the shipping company. One call to Rec Tec customer service and they absolutely made it right... without making me deal with the shipper or jumping through other hoops.
    I wholeheartedly steer anybody that asks toward Rec Tec!
