Sized for your family, Priced for your wallet

People have clamored for a grill that was bigger than the “tailgater” type units on the market, that is sized just right for the average family. Well, REC TEC introduces the Stampede. This grill offers all the great features and build quality that REC TEC customers have grown accustomed to, and at a size that will accommodate a large family. 

The Wi-Pellet WiFi Technology allows you to control your cook from anywhere, while the Proprietary PID Controller maintains a precise temperature necessary to produce gourmet cooks on a consistent basis.

The Stampede has a unique octagon-shaped cooking chamber made of stainless steel that sets it apart from other grills on the market, while offering the durability to last a lifetime. No more settling for a size that doesn’t quite fit your needs. With other grills you are shopping “off the rack”, the Stampede is a tailor-made fit for your family’s cooking needs.

  • First Time Pellet cook

    Posted by Shane Jones on 23rd Nov 2018

    Now that we are all stuffed and resting from cooking for long hours and eating until our buttons popped I figured I would do my review of the Rec Tec Pellet grill, Stampede model.

    First, I ordered on a Sunday night and that Next Friday at 9am is arrived. Assembly was quick and easy and in less than an hour I was doing the first burn and running the grill with the App. The App is glitch free so far and works very well. I can control my grill from anywhere as long as I have phone signal.

    What I cooked
    13lb whole Brisket, injected
    2 14lb Injected Turkeys.
    This was about all this grill could hold.

    The Brisket went on at Midnight at 215*
    The Birds went on at 830am at 215*
    10am the Brisket hit 160*, I removed, wrapped in foil with added beef broth and put back in the grill to finish.
    Temp was set to 225*
    130pm Brisket hit 205*, removed and placed in a cooler
    Birds hit 165* at 345 and were carved for eating at 4pm sharp.

    First. This cooker held the most perfect temperature ever. The App gives you a graph of temp swings and it never varied more than 2 degrees. Amazing!
    The meat probes worked flawlessly. They are with in 1* of my two instant read Thermometers and 2 degrees from my Weber iGrill 2 thermometer.

    How did the meat turn out? All I can say is wow. The Turkey was juicy and done perfectly.
    The Brisket was a show stopper. A perfect smoke ring, perfect amount of pull and super tender.

    Over all this pellet cooker is a keeper. It is not a cheap product and I have no experience with other pellet cookers to say this one is better. What I can tell you is it is worth every penny IMO. The way it keeps the temp is far superior than any stick burner or propane smoker I have ever used and love my stick burners . The App is excellent! Meat was on at 12am and I was a sleep at 1210am. Almost 14hours of cooking at low and slow and used about 12-14lbs of pellets. This is exactly what Rec Tec says I should use with high quality pellets. There is no reason this grill cannot be a dedicated smoker. It does exactly what my Dedicated stick burner does but better. Holds temp better, less fuss, easy clean up, no hot spots and excellent food. It is in every sense of the word, a smoker with the ability to grill. Will there be and is there difference in flavor between a stick burner and pellet grill? Jury is still out. I think a stick burner will give a better bark if that is what your are after. The pellets I used were a blend and I use mostly Oak in my stick burner. So when I do a pork butt I will use the Oak pellets and will have a better idea of flavor differences.

    Started the REC TEC journey about 22 months ago, Since i already own the 680, 300, 2-Bullseyes, & the Matador, i had to get the STAMPEDE to go in line with these awesome grills, the line up is Bullseye, 680, Stampede, 300, Bullseye, Matador, the STAMPEDE is a BEAUTY of an addition to the group. Since beginning using these grills in Feb. of 2017 i've gone thru 1800# of pellets, 95% of cooks are done on these AWESOME GRILLS, since i live in RI. and the weather is all over the place, that speaks for ITSELF, having a Gazebo helps my cause, even if i have to shovel a path to it, i use them year round. Can't say enough, Thanks REC TEC

    Excellent control

  • Great Grill for the family!

    Posted by James Rankin on 4th Nov 2018

    I have had the Stampede for several weeks now and bottom line - I love it! I was skeptical about pellet grills as I have been grilling/smoking on the WSM and kettle grills for several years. This grill is perfect for the wife and I. So far I have done both low and slow, and hot and fast cooks including baby backs, thick cut rib chops, burgers, beef short ribs and chicken. Everything has turned out great, it's so easy I almost feel guilty (Almost!).
    Only thing Rec Tec could improve is offer a front shelf, and a custom fit cold weather cover for this beast! I'm a dyed in the wool Michigander and enjoy cooking year round, so the cover would be great for winter!
    Bottom line - I highly recommend this grill, it accurately holds temp, turns out great food, and with simplicity of the wi-fi controls makes this a very useful tool for your BBQ arsenal.
