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‚Ñâ 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‚Ñâ 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  • Much more reliable than outdated steel ignitor cartridges 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

    I've had the 680 for going on 6 years now and finally upgraded to the Ceramic Ignition System and wish I would've upgraded years ago. My 680 heats up so much faster now, especially in cooler Wisconsin spring weather. Money well spent!!

    Replaced my old igniter rod and fire pot with this. Install took all of 30 minutes and I was up and running. I had to remove the rubber gasket from the hole that the cables went thru to fit the the new cables thru, replaced them after they were thru.

    Very much appreciate the quality and ease of repair of your grills. Good to see a company put out a great product with even better customer support.

    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!!!
