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.

    I had the 680 OG red painted lid for 5+ years. It ran flawless. Just upgraded to the BFG and it again is a piece of art.

    BFG - Amazing!

    Joe -

    Gave the neighbor my 680 for helping me set up the BFG (needless to say he's happy as hell lol), LOVE it. Did my first cook with it this past weekend, nice packer brisket (18 pounder) and 4-5 slabs of baby backs. Came out amazing and the smoker is a BEAST! GREAT job team Rec Tec as always, couldn't be happier!!! KUDOS!

    BFG 2500

    Rick Windrum -

    I am a restaurant owner and am expanding my catering business. I purchased this grill highly referred by a friend who has forgotten more about smoking meat than I'll ever know! I have smoked over 300# of Brisket and 100# of Pork Butts in the last 10 days which have turned out better than anything I've ever done...50/50 to the procedures my friend has turned me on to and this grill!! This grill can handle 18 packers at once, and I'm doing 12 pork butts Friday Pm on only 2 shelves! Here are the only reasons I gave only 4 stars...1) the seams in the SS body are not fully caulked up to edges and not completely sealed, I purchased a tube and finished the hard to reach places for 10$ and I'm ok with that but should be a job done thoroughly at factory. The only other issue I experienced with this grill was that it cooks much hotter in the middle where the drain trays peak therefore radiating much more heat...don't really think a design problem, but a necessity for drainage however...rotating product from one side to the other is a must unless you put the heavier cuts in the middle and probe them as a gauge...
    Don't get me wrong in this review...I love this grill, this purchase, and the support I've gotten!! Would do it again, and may need too!!

    BFG 2500

    Rick W. -

    I bought a Traeger 3 years ago and dealt with it's many issues the entire time after cooking at least 1000 # of meat on it, I just ordered my BFG after a friend introduced me to his Bull. I cannot wait to use this on my growing catering business!! If I am as excited after using it the first time as I am now after reading all the reviews and placing my order today, I'll be ordering another!!! Really needs to come with a cover would be my only upfront suggestion! Serious caterers/restauranteurs would want this covered when transporting or not in use. Cant wait!! Will follow up with comments!

    BFG 2500 is Built Like a Tank!

    Alex Leslie -

    The BFG is my first Rec Tec. I only wish I had bought Rec Tecs instead of those Chinese imports I have been using for the past 10 years! The materials and quality of build on this unit can't be beat. Everything is heavy - this thing weighs over 500 pounds before you add the 53 pounds of pellets!

    The interior racks are all heavy solid stainless steel bar stock. I guess the upper racks weigh about 40 pounds each. you can pull them out half way to work over your meats and they won't fall out I keep a pair of welding gloves with my grill to handle the racks. There are three positions for the racks; 4', 6' & 8" above the main grill. I have used two uppers at 4" vertical spacing doing ribs, sausages and thinner cuts of meat. I use a single upper rack in the 6" position for bigger chunks of meat like prime rib and the huge pork butts we get here in Kansas.

    The PID controller keeps the temperature right where you want it most of the time. The only variations I have experienced are when we have strong gusty winds and then it never varies more than 5 degrees. The fire pot is about the size of a loaf pan with air injection all around it for a lot of heat when you need it. I ran it for one hour at 500F to break it in and the temp stayed right up there the whole time. The heavy gauge stainless steel tank holds the heat and minimizes pellet consumption.

    I cook for several organizations I belong to on a volunteer basis, as well as our local access to healthy food project. Every time I set this grill up, people are impressed with the quality of the unit and the food that come out of it. I would not hesitate to recommend the BFG or a smaller unit made by Rec Tec after using this grill for the past couple of months!
