Everyone considers two things when buying a new grill: size, and price. REC TEC has found the answer for both questions...


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 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.

    Shipped earlier than expected, easy to put together. Worked perfectly right away. Awesome grill. Amazing control to be able to use the app and check on progress of the food that’s cooking. Love my Rec Tec grill

    Very easy to assemble. Had a difficult time getting Wifi to connect to my network. Worked with Chris from Rec Tec for several days. He sent me a new controller and still unable to connect. I finally started reading posted reviews for the stampede to determine if anyone else experienced this problem. I found a review that addressed my problem. I moved my grill to the room that hosts my network and the grill connected. Thank God
    Although I’m happy with the grill I didn’t like having to move this grill to get the Wifi connected.
    My grill cover is still back ordered. If the products aren’t available they should be noted when you order the grill package.

  • Hi quality, excellent grill

    Nothing compares to the RecTec in quality, ease of use or or price! This is our first wood pellet grill, we researched many brands. We are very happy with our choice, we have only had it a month but we have grilled ribs, burgers,brats, chicken, vegetables, and pizza, so far, all have been excellent. Temperature control on the Rec Tec is awesome, very easy to use for precise cooking temps.

    I put a lot of time into finding a quality pellet smoker and stumbled across Rec Tec after a friend recommended it. So I decided to get the RT-590 Stampede because it was the best size for my needs. I was very happy with the build quality, look, and functionality of this grill. The Wi-Fi feature is really nice also. I did have problems with the shipping company, but I contacted Rec Tec about the issue and they took care of everything. Amazing customer service. I would recommend these grills to anyone.

  • This grill is great meets all my expectations heats up quickly and maintains temp perfectly definitely recommend

    I love it! It makes it so easy to smoke and grill out. I thought about all other big name smokers but was intimidated about controlling temperatures and lighting the charcoal. With my Rec Tec, it is as simple as turn it on and set the temp, just like an oven. Plus I can monitor it with my phone, I was able to smoke a boston butt while I ran errands without worrying about over cooking. Thank you Rec Tec!

    This is my second RT grill. Sold my other one to get one with a more sensible size to meet my personal needs. I bought one of the first original grills ever offered, and that was already a super duty grill. This one is even more so - the craftsmanship is higher quality, equipped with WiFi control + monitoring, and meat temperature skewer interfaces. Overall this is just one tough grill that means business!

    I love this grill!!! Just fire it up and forget it. Works like a charm. Adds great smoked flavor to my chicken, lamb chops, fish and shrimp.

    1st pellet smoker, have been using refrigerator door style electric smokers over the last 10 years or so.

    This smoker does what it is supposed to do, and does it well. Plenty of smoke, which was a concern, but likely because I tend to cook at fairly low temps.

    The added wi-fi monitoring and control is amazing. Dual probe and temp history for each probe and the smoker from the beginning to the end of the smoke.

    The alarms in the app don't work - the app has to be open - but that doesn't impact the function of the smoker (just the app, which can use an update in that regard).

    I had one issue upon assembly - one steel portion of the smoker would not accept the leg deep enough (right rear leg) to insert a screw to fasten. I used a mallet and forced it, no issues since.

    I let the guys at RecTec know, just so they could watch out for similar issues with other smokers - it was not the packaging, which was perfect - and they sent me some rub as a thank you for the heads up.

    The only thing missing is a quick clean up for the fire box and a quick release to dump unused pellets, but the wifi and consistent results more than make up for those missing features. All of my recipes translated perfectly to the Stampede, and this thing makes amazing tasting food with set it and forget it ease.

    5 stars. I'd like to see a release to dump unused pellets (I use different wood for different meats), and a quick clean out for the firebox, but those features are rare and far from the current mainstream of features for similar smokers.

    Great build quality, great temperature control and monitoring, good sized hopper and great tasting food. That's exactly what I wanted.
