  • RT-2500 BFG is Amazing

    Posted by Donluppo on 15th Oct 2019

    The biggest most beautiful BBQ ever!! This thing is built like a tank and is also very precise when cooking. 53 lbs hopper gives me super long cooks and the looks and style of the BFG are spectacular.... Thanks again Rectec for a truly brilliant pellet grill

  • BFG, Heck Yea!

    Posted by Dave Koston on 9th Oct 2019

    I did a test run of chicken, brisket, and ribs and the results were great. On my second use of the BFG, I made 40lbs of brisket and 48lbs of chick thighs for a group of folks who hold BBQ to a high standard. Not only was the BFG dead simple to use, everything came out amazing. I'm completely sold on Rec Tec and the BFG.

    NOTE: I'm in Texas where it's still hot and I had to turn down the minimum feed rate on pellets in the app to lowest to keep the temps even. Once doing that it held +-3 degrees for an 18 hour smoke

  • This is the beast!!

    Posted by Derrick on 13th Sep 2019

    Wow....this is built like a tank! This is definitely a two man job to assemble. I was not aware just how big this grill really was. The pictures don’t do it justice... it’s twice as big as I really thought it was going to be! It’s built to last for sure!!!!

    The BFG grill is the best grill I’ve ever owned It works awesome I sold my old grill A week after I got my RECTEC

    I ordered the BFG on a Sunday and it was delivered in 4 days. The size and quality build of the BFG is very impressive. Pictures on the website don’t do it justice. The BFG is built like a tank. My only regret is that I didn’t order is sooner. Sitting it next to my Bull makes the Bull look like a child’s toy—which it’s far from a toy. Three cooks in and it performs better than advertised. The customer service that comes along with the purchase is second to none

  • BFG Lives Up to Its Name

    Posted by Mike Ellsworth on 30th Aug 2019

    Having played the original Doom and Quake games, the BFG was the weapon all strive to attain as quickly as possible. Once you do, it is pure nirvana. This grill/smoker completely lives up to its famous initials! All in the Rec Tec family should strive to attain this bad boy as it will destroy all your competition!
    I can't thank the staff enough for helping me out with getting this model. I had bought the Bull, but for my needs it was a little smaller than expected, even though it was completely amazing. I just needed something larger and they graciously helped me upgrade to the BFG and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I felt pretty bad asking for the upgrade, but they made me feel good about it and I am betting that enough of my friends will end up getting Bulls or Stampedes because of the meats I'm cooking that Rec Tec will make their money back and more. I already have 3 looking at them hard. I'm waiting for the new Bullseye to complete my personal needs and will probably get a Stampede later for the lake!
    I have already cooked multiple meats at a time with perfect results and for Labor Day weekend alone, I will be doing a brisket, 2 pork butts, 1 rack of dinosaur beef ribs, 3 racks of baby backs, about 100 chicken wings, a dozen or so sausages, some pig candy and at least 4 sides. In 2 weeks, I will be going whole hog, and I have the confidence that all will come out perfectly! Check the BFG owner’s forum on FB for pics

  • This is the most AWSOME grill you will never need another one. No job to small or large for the BFG

    I would recommend this grill to anyone and comes with 100% Customer Service that is outstanding

    Talk about a Happy Birthday, had looked at a Bull previously but didn’t pull the trigger and went with another brand. Had nothing but issues and awful customer service. Had the opportunity to cook on my Brother’s Bull and knew immediately what I had to do and took the “other” grill back. While I was looking at the Bull , my wife said your birthday is coming up, “Get the one you Want” . So I ordered the BFG on a Saturday and it was delivered the following Wednesday on my birthday and it has been in use almost every day in the two weeks since. 3 overnight cooks so far and Temp stayed true the entire time. There isn’t anything so far that has been planned for dinner that I haven’t put on this thing, including all the sides and veggies and everything has come out amazing. The quality of the BFG, the Amazing resources of recipes and videos online, and what has to be the Absolute Most Amazing customer service I have ever experienced have made this an incredible purchase. It smokes, it grills, it even gets hot enough to sear, the only thing it doesn’t do is carry the food inside and serve it. When they tell you “Welcome to the Family” they really mean it. #RecTecLife #RecTecFamily

    Only done a couple of cooks on it but was very please with the simplicity of it all. I previously cooked on the Kamoto type smoker which is nice also but the capacity this beast has is hard to turn your head from. Still have a lot to learn but so far so good. Also CUSTOMER SERVICE IS OFF THE HOOK!
