This item is compatible with all REC TEC Wood Pellets Grills, EXCEPT for the REC TEC Matador Portable Gas Cooker.

REC TEC pellet grills purchased AFTER March 1, 2017 will come STANDARD with this ignition system. Grills purchased PRIOR to March 1, 2017 can benefit from this as an upgrade.

Our new HOTFLASH Ceramic Ignition System is a game changer. Continuously replacing old metal ignitor rods is a thing of the past as REC TEC’s HOTFLASH Ceramic Ignition System is rated up to 100,000 cycles. This ignitor is shrouded by a stainless sleeve and rises up to 1,800℉ for rapid pellet ignition. The fire pot design permits the ignitor to be suspended while allowing air to flow around it, keeping it cooler after shut down. Also, the ignitor is isolated from the burn pot; therefore it will not be subject to a constant fire while the grill is in use. 


  • Rated up to 100,000 cycles
  • Up to 1,800℉ to create a fire within minutes
  • 10 gauge stainless steel construction firepot
  • Indestructible design
  • Integrated ignitor shroud
  • Precision engineered 
  • Includes HOTFLASH Ceramic Ignitor Rod
  • Will Fit Most Traeger Models
  • Much more reliable than outdated steel ignitor cartridges 
  • Complete system ready to install

    Great instructions online from Ray and other users.
    Only thing was that I wish they had sent it with Molex connector. Lowe's and home depot didnt have it in stock as it's a specialty item from an electric store. I was able to youtube a video on taking the wire out of the molex.

    As far as performance works like a charm!!!

    Recently I needed to change my igniter in my RecTec 680 smoker. I called the factory and purchased the ceramic Hotflash system. It was simple to install and is doing everything as advertised. It ignites quickly and works like a charm. Great product and thanks for the retro fit system!!

    Went through a couple metal ignition systems. After seeing how easy the replacement is, I should have gotten this earlier. As far as performance, it definitely gets the temperature up faster.

    It work Perfectly. Was not to hard to install. If I had a forklift it would have been easier.
