57 Reviews



The RT-2500 BFG is the king of the mountain in pellet grilling, and you won’t find more bang for your buck anywhere or at any price. By focusing on flavor, convenience, and versatility, the RT-2500 makes all other grills obsolete. Additionally, our commitment to superior build quality, components, warranty, temperature control, and customer service ensures that you get everything you pay for out of your grill. In short, there isn’t a grill anywhere in the vicinity of this price point that offers the quality of a recteq. Our factory direct pricing eliminates the middleman, changes the game, and makes you the winner. With all the flavor and none of the hassle, recteq offers better flavor than charcoal and more convenience than gas. You can bake, smoke, sear, grill, and even dehydrate, all with the push of a button. It’s that easy! That’s why those in the know own a recteq.


Below are some undisputed facts that prove why recteqs are the premier grill in the industry:


1.     Build Quality

With 2500 square inches of cooking space, this grill is built like a tank. Simply put, it’s a big freakin’ grill! recteq utilizes a combination of high-quality stainless steel designed to last a lifetime. They feature a commonsense design that doesn’t have gimmicky features that create weak points, making our grills something you can pass down to your family as a cherished heirloom filled with years of memories. The ultimate outdoor grill by a mile, we encourage you to buy once and buy right instead of buying inferior products over and over. 


2.    Components

recteq features stainless steel grates, firepots, heat deflectors, and drip pans. They also include a stainless steel logo and smoke cap, with stainless steel hardware as well. We have never in the history of our company had a firepot fail on us; we’ve even driven over it with a dump truck and a steamroller (we’re not kidding)! Additionally, we added two interior lights for those late-night cooks. recteq also utilizes a ceramic ignitor rod that won’t rust or corrode that’s been rated for up to 100,000 lighting cycles.


3.    Warranty

recteq offers the best warranty in the industry, bar none. The RT-2500 BFG comes with a 6-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that is absolutely unmatched by anyone in the industry. If you encounter a problem, we’re going to make it right. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s that simple. 


4.    Temperature Control

With the most precise controller on the market, our proprietary Smart Grill Technology™ is designed to maintain temperatures to your desired set point. Also, with WiFi capability, you can control your grill from virtually anywhere! This gives you unmatched control, flexibility, and precision. With your recteq reliably holding temperature, you can cook anything you want without worrying about the wild temperature swings that competitor pellet grills struggle with.


5.    Customer Service

You simply will not find a company that offers better customer service than recteq. Would you believe that each customer receives both co-founders’ cell phone numbers with their purchase? Well it’s true, and it’s our duty to make you feel as if you’ve truly become part of the recteq family.

    All purpose cooking machine

    Mikey B

    I’ve had my BFG-2500 for a few weeks now. Assembly instruction were very clear, everything fit together perfectly and quality of materials is outstanding. I’ve smoked ribs, a pork butt and chicken wings. I’ve grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken thighs, a spatchcock chicken and salmon. I’ve baked a homemade pizza.. I seared rib eye steaks using the sear kit. I’ve sautéed onions and mushrooms on the griddle. Everything came out great, this grill does EVERYTHING! I couldn’t be happier with this grill.

    Based on the 5 I own

    Bill Wyko -

    Based on the 5 Rec Tec's I own and 8 years of use, I can tell you, this is going to be an amazing grill. I see the controller, quality stainless steel and the amazing competition base is in use which I have on my grill. It's obvious this will be yet another Rec tec with superb quality, dead on temp control and rock solid easy to roll base. You can bet It'll be yet another I will add to my arsenal of Rec Tec's. FYI, my 680 is on it's way to being 8 years old, It still works perfectly like it did on day one. I've already done your research, you can't go wrong here, click buy now, thank me later.

    Best freakin’ grill! Look no further

    Mark Moskowitz -

    BFG 2500 should stand for best freakin’ grill. This smoker is a game changer and don’t be intimidated by size. The extra capacity is worth it for scaling up for big gatherings. It still delivers when smoking just for the family too. Burns cleanly and temps are steady whether smoking for 5 hrs or 12 hrs-plus. The materials are high quality. The drip pans are set at good angle and make for less mess. Lastly, the Bull Handles just affirm that this is one solid smoker that stands out. Thanks Rec Tec!

    Best pellet grill hands down!

    Ed S

    Grill came on time. Great packaging job. Easy to assemble and operate. Dontt be fooled by other grill quality, there is no better grill, and with a 6 year warranty, I am glad I bought the BFG!

    Best Smoker Ever!

    Brett C -

    I purchased a Bull 700 last summer, and my only complaint was that I couldn’t fit 5 packers on it. When I saw the BFG, it was love at first sight. The quality construction of these grills is undeniable, overbuilt to the point I felt guilty that I didn’t pay more for it. I now have plans to use the grill to smoke 5 packers and a dozen slabs of ribs for Memorial Day. Incredibly excited for al the cooks planned this summer. Thank you REC TEC!!!!
