    Great addition to my grill family

    Franklin Fitzgerald -

    I’ve been grilling on kettle and gas grills for most of my adult life. I took an interest in pellet grills over the past year through following several bbq pages on Instagram. I locked in on Rec Tec because of how the grill was constructed and the use of the dual probes and WiFi accessibility. It had everything I was looking for to take my grilling to the next level. I’ve been on the rectec at least every other day since it arrived. The grill set up with the app was easy and the I’m more than pleased with my meals so far. I even have a couple of friends who have already inquired about purchasing a grill based off of my social media posts. I originally wanted the Bull, but ended up buying the stampede. I made a great investment in purchasing a Rec Tec smoker.

    This grill lived up to all the hype that I was given and so did the customer service. The only regret I have is not getting the 700.

    Great grill + awesome customer service

    Nigel and Amanda -

    Never write reviews, but feel like this is needed. We were on the fence about buying this grill, and any grill with the hefty price tag. Mainly because well, is it worth it? & let me tell you!! My wife, who doesn't like spending money on ANYTHING, loves this grill. And yes, it is worth every penny. We had a rough start with our new grill; it came with some severe forklift damage to the hopper. My wife emailed but then called customer service and Chris helped her out and was nothing short of awesome, then Mike left her a voicemail from her email she had sent the night prior. Literally, by Monday the Recteq team (she spoke to Chris on a Saturday morning) had a brand new grill shipping to our house, and that Friday we had the new grill. The only real pain was having to put the damaged grill in the box, and tie to the pallet but that was in reality, it was a breeze. The grill is a awesome to use, we've never had such a easy experience with a company, using a new grill, etc., before.

    Great Grill for the family!

    James Rankin -

    I have had the Stampede for several weeks now and bottom line - I love it! I was skeptical about pellet grills as I have been grilling/smoking on the WSM and kettle grills for several years. This grill is perfect for the wife and I. So far I have done both low and slow, and hot and fast cooks including baby backs, thick cut rib chops, burgers, beef short ribs and chicken. Everything has turned out great, it's so easy I almost feel guilty (Almost!).
    Only thing Rec Tec could improve is offer a front shelf, and a custom fit cold weather cover for this beast! I'm a dyed in the wool Michigander and enjoy cooking year round, so the cover would be great for winter!
    Bottom line - I highly recommend this grill, it accurately holds temp, turns out great food, and with simplicity of the wi-fi controls makes this a very useful tool for your BBQ arsenal.

    Great Grill/Smoker

    Alex -

    This does everything I wanted it to do and the results are great. Cooked for a large family gathering and it delivered the results for ribs, sausage and chicken. Had a Green Mountain Grill before and it was fine but this is miles ahead of that in quality and results.

    Still new to the grill so I am still trying to figure out how to use a pellet smoker. My biggest issue when ordering was regretting going small and well, I regret not getting the bull. Especially because of the warranty. Overall the grill is nice and well built. It would be nice if they would add some sort of hooks of some sort to hold your utensils when in use and for storage. It’s annoying not having anywhere to put anything. The WiFi controller uses a 2.4 Mghz or whatever it is. I am not tech savvy so apparently I had a 5.0 and would not work. It took me several days to figure that out which was a little annoying but once I figured out, it worked fine. Except for it changed EVERYTHING in my house and I had to re-link everything to the internet again. That was a bit annoying. The temp prob is a bit in accurate. I had it in the meatiest part of food on 3 different occasions and all three times everything was undercooked by about 20-25 degrees. This is the first “expensive” grill that I have purchased so I am nit picking it to death but overall it seems like a good solid grill. I just wished I would have went with the bull so I am kinda mad at myself for not doing that seems how this will probably be the only purchase for a long time!
