    The holy grail of pellet grills.

    Tyler -

    Recteq knocked it out of the park with this one! This grill is the holy grail of pellet smokers/grills. Chicken thighs, ribs, porterhouse, even a whole cleaned alligator. PERFECTION.

    The last Pellet Grill you will ever purchase!


    What a great pellet grill. I just received the rt1250 yesterday. Assembly was easy thanks to the easy to follow high quality assembly video.
    I made a chicken and it came out great. I tried out the temperature range from low max smoke 180 degrees to the high/full setting. I have thought about getting the sear plates but I may hold off. On the high setting the grill obtained 700 degrees actual. I'm very impressed with the quality of the build and how easily the grill holds the set temperature.
    I wanted to give 5 stars but the 5th ⭐ would not activate.
