How It Works

Controlled Wood Means Controlled Temperature

The REC TEC uses wood pellets instead of firewood, meaning that the amount of wood that goes into the fire can be controlled. The Smart Grill processor controls the cycle rate of an auger that controls just how much wood is delivered to the fire pot. Because of this, you can pick a precise temperature - for example, 225℉ and that temperature can be maintained by speeding up or slowing down the rate at which fuel is going into the fire. Instead of cooking something over “medium coals” with all the work that entails, you can now cook with precision, confidence and consistency.

The Grill That Acts Like A Pitmaster

The best pitmasters know how to control temperature with air and wood and then monitor their fires to maintain a consistent cook. Now, with a REC TEC, instead of having to mess around with sticks of wood, lumps of charcoal, vents to open and close, distance of fire from food, and countless other annoyances, you can simply set a temperature and you’re ready to cook. It’s similar how you control the oven in your kitchen, only instead of tasteless hot air or gas flames, you’re cooking with flavorful wood smoke… Like a true pitmaster.

The Grill That Acts Like A Pitmaster

As soon as you turn on your REC TEC Wood Pellet Grill, the Smart Grill processor goes to work by energizing the igniter rod located in the grill’s fire pot and adds just enough fuel to your fire pot to start the fire without smothering the flames. After a few minutes, you can see and smell the smoke coming from your grill.

Then, the thick smoke from the lighting sequence clears and thin clean smoke starts to roll. At this time, your Smart Grill processor starts adding more pellet fuel and your temperature starts to climb towards your selected temperature. As the grill temperature closes in on the temperature you choose as your set point, the Smart Grill processor analyzes the grill’s temperature data and calculates the proper pellet feed rate needed to reach that temperature and hold steady while you cook.

When you open your grill lid to add food or check your progress, heat will escape. When this happens, the Smart Grill processor will add pellets and recalculate the necessary fuel to bring your temperature back to your set point. Additionally, as your food increases in temperature or the outdoor weather changes, your Smart Grill processor will compensate for these changes in order to maintain the exact temperature you selected.
