RT-590 Pellet Grill

502 Reviews



The RT-590 is sized for your family and priced for your wallet. If you find the RT-700 is too much grill for you, and the RT-340 is too small, the RT-590 is the perfect fit for any griller. At 592 square inches, there simply isn’t more bang for your buck anywhere at any price. By focusing on flavor, convenience, and versatility, the RT-590 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 are more convenient than gas. You can bake, smoke, sear, grill, and even dehydrate, all with the push of a button. It couldn’t be easier! That’s why those in the know own a recteq

2.    Components

recteq features stainless steel grates, firepots, heat deflectors, and drip pans. They also feature 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)! 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

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.

    6 Stars if i could


    I used to own a Traeger but it wouldn't hold the temp. This beast keeps it within 1 degree.
    INCREDIBLE. I couldn't be happier.

    A fantastic grill/smoker

    Jon -

    I looked at the Rec Tec grill for three years before finally purchasing it. I have fallen in love with it. I can’t say everything I have cooked has been perfect (yet) but everything has been darned tasty. I have made turkey, filet, hamburgers, salmon, pizza (take the time to make the sauce and dough!) and more. It can smoke, grill, or both. We have gone from take out 5 times a week to home grilled/smoked dinners 5 times a week. I questioned whether it really could be a 5 star product, but it is.

    A great grill so far

    John Heuvelman -

    I received my Rec Tec Stampede a week ago. Over the weekend I used it for the first time, and it was all that I had hoped it would be. I've been a charcoal griller for 40+ years, and my family and friends swear by my cooking. But the pellet grill is so easy to use that I may be a convert! It couldn't be easier to start, and I can regulate the heat better than I could ever hope to with charcoal. The flavor of the meat was outstanding, and with less effort than I'm used to spending.
    It was ribs last weekend, but I can hardly wait to try other meats.
    About the only negative was the amount of cleanup required due to the drip pan and bucket. But that's going to be the case with any pellet grill.

    A winner!!

    Cornelius -

    I got my Stampede last week. Since then I've cooked ribs,burgers and brisket. Everything turned out great. I put the brisket on at noon yesterday and didn't have to even look at the grill until 5am this morning when the probe temp alarm (in the app)let me know my desired temp had been reached. Im getting rid of my other grills/smokers! Im now a believer!

    Absolutely Amazing RT-590

    Aaron Davenport -

    So, normally I would write a "the good" and "the bad" on this multi functional smoker/grill, however there is not enough "bad" to make that list. The PID temperature control is spot on, the 30lb hopper is enough room to endure the long smokes, and warm up and recovery times are quite quick(<15 for warm up, and recover negligible time as I never open my lid unless adding more food or removing completely, but when I do <2 minutes). Example of how amazing this grill is, I was doing 2 chicken breasts last night injected and rubbed down. I placed 1 breast on the left side of the grill and 1 breast on the right side, both with temp probes inserted. Cooking at 275, my set temp was there, my actual held there, and as the cook progressed my breasts internally evened out temp and cooked at the same rate to 140, until I increased set temp to 325 to finish and pull at 162. Handled flawless, and after rest a perfect 165 for bone in chicken breasts. We have also done Chuck Roast, Burger, and 3 Boston Butts. All amazing and right amount of smoke. Only changes I would make is easier access to change out pellet flavors, but already have learned to manage that. Amazing grill, amazing service, amazing end results.

    Advanced Grill w/Advanced Tech!

    Justin -

    This is my second RT grill. Sold my other one to get one with a more sensible size to meet my personal needs. I bought one of the first original grills ever offered, and that was already a super duty grill. This one is even more so - the craftsmanship is higher quality, equipped with WiFi control + monitoring, and meat temperature skewer interfaces. Overall this is just one tough grill that means business!

    After a 1 1/2 years of studying pellet grills, I finally pulled the plug and purchased my Stampede. I have never enjoyed grilling/smoking as I have now. With only having it three weeks and doing 4 burns, the finished product has been amazing and wel

    The best grill I have ever owned.

    Almost Purchased Another Brand

    Mick -

    Almost pulled the trigger on a Green Mountain but decided to do more research. The more I researched, the more I gravitated to the Rec-Teq. Man, am I glad I made the RT purchase. The 590 is built to last a lifetime and is perfectly sized for my wife and I.

    As a previous rec tec mini owner for more than two years, I expected this grill to be fantastic, but it exceeded my expectations. I am amazed at the smoke output of this thing! It heats up super fast. The wifi controller is fantastic! It's a perfect size as well! Rec Tec created a fantastic product and I highly recommend it!
