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)! Our automated self-cleaning shutdown mode virtually eliminates the need to clean our firepots. recteq also utilizes a ceramic ignitor rod that won’t rust or corrode that’s been rated for up to 100,000 lighting cycles.

    First Time Use Rec Tec 590

    Darnell Edmonds -

    The best smoke ring I've ever had on my ribs!!! The only hiccup is the drip pan is not the easiest thing to get in and out of the smoker.

    First Use

    Joseph Alsko -

    This might be a little premature, but the Stampede gets 5 Stars for what I "don't" have to do to smoke meats. I'm coming from a 22" Weber Smokey Mt. Cooker with a digital controller. It served me well for many years but it's a pain in the butt to get started, especially on cold Colorado mornings.
    To get the Weber going, you have to lift the body and lid (if the lid is attached with a hinge) and make sure that you have enough briquettes in the bottom of the smoker to last the entire cooking session. Then you have to get the briquettes going, usually with a chimney starter.
    Once you dump the lit briquettes into the base of the Weber, then you have to lift the body and lid and place it back onto the base. I'm 55 and fairly strong, but that gets old after a while.
    Then, I plug in the digital controller and hook the fan assembly to the base of the Weber and stick the temperature probe into the body. Once the digital controller boots up (and this can take several power cycles to happen successfully) cooking can begin.
    The Weber did give me consistent results, but I would often "not smoke" because of how much trouble it was.
    This morning, I went out back to the Stampede, turned it on and set the temp to 225 for my brisket. The hopper was already full from the burn in session that I accomplished yesterday.
    The Stampeded got up to 225 degrees fairly quickly even though it was only 32 degrees outside this morning - yes, it's April here in northern Colorado.
    I brought the brisket out and placed it on the grill and started smoking it. Sooooo easy!
    I also LOVE all of the stainless steel parts of the Stampede!
    Here's to many years of delicious smoked meats!

    First wood pellet grill

    Erick -

    I just got the 590 with competition cart delivered today. I set it up, did the first burn, and smoked some steaks and a tritip. The flavor was amazing and I can only imagine with a little time and practice the 590 will cook better than any steakhouse I can find. Great product, easy to put together, and easy to use.

    From Mini to Stampede

    Dave J -

    After owning and using the heck out of my Rec Tec Mini, I decided the increased size of the Stampede would fit our needs just perfectly. I sold my Mini to a pal (who loves it!) and got the Stampede.

    Have had it a few months now and use it for everything. Smoking, grilling, cooking...all are just fantastic on the Rec Tec! While I didn't upgrade for the wifi capability, that has proven to be one of the best features.

    It is big enough to cook complete meals with meat and veggies all fitting on the generous cooking surface, or to smoke a 17 pound turkey, or two fifteen pound briskets.

    As always, customer service unsurpassed. Go Rec Tec!~

    General review

    Dan Forbrook -

    Over all i am please with the product quality and over all function. We really like the flavor of the foods we have done so far. The only disappointment was that the stainless steel part of the grill turned brown after the first use.

    Good quality

    Dan -

    Overall, a very nice grill. Quality components and very easy assembly. I would buy any other grill....period.

    Got me hooked on REC TEQ

    Joshua -

    I chose the RT-590 for two reason. Material used in it's construction and the advertised temp range. So far I've gotten three calls in two competitions using the 590 (Chicken, Ribs and Steak. Haven't had a brisket comp come up yet.). Because of this, my BBQ team (Yummy Tummy BBQ) is going all in on using Rec Teq for competitions. Just order the BFG and will be ordering the Bullseye soon. Not sure if I want to wait for the 590 comp cart (A must if you're planning on taking your 590 anywhere other than out of your garage on it's way to the driveway) and buy that first or pull the trigger on the Bullseye. Either way I'll be getting both at some point. Long story short; great smoker/grill, great company and GREAT food come with buying a Rec Teq!

    I'll try to cover a couple of things that aren't covered in the many helpful youtube videos and some of the questions I had before getting a Stampede. This may look "small" next to the bull on the website but the cooking space is quite large for family use. The cooking space is bigger than the large propane grill I was replacing. No problem cooking for 6-10 people on this grill. The heat-up period is similar to propane, Takes about 20 minutes to get to 400 degrees in 55 degree weather. I did get the searing plates which are really useful. Setup is a breeze, just go slow and be methodical, although having a 2nd person was helpful. I do recommend adding the all weather vents on the back of the Stampede as it of course rained during my first cook and I thought they were helpful. Lastly, although this is great in more creative cooks, it can also be used to cook some quick burgers and brats as I have done and they were delicious. When I bought the Rec Tec, I kept the old propane grill just in case it wasn't good for "quick" stuff, but after a few cooks on the Stampede I knew I would never use it again and tossed it. Already have several neighbors interested in a Rec Tec!
