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)! 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.

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.

    Amazing Smoker and Customer Service.

    Wayne Long -

    I received my RT-590 today and cannot say enough about the quality! Very easy to assemble and completed it in about 45 minutes. I was having issues connecting to WiFi, called customer service and resolved the issue quickly. It was my fault, but I have to tell you, companies in North America need to read the play book from Recteq on what customer service is, these guys hit it out of the ballpark! I also bought some of the rubs, they are amazing and that is a lot to say from a boy from Kansas City where we pride ourselves on the worlds best bbq. You guys got me hooked for life!

    After returning another brands pellet grill to Costco due to wild temp swings, I made the decision to go with the Stampede. The setup was easy and the grill works flawlessly. Other than a quick temp drop when opening the lid (as expected), the temp hasn't sways more that 2 degrees.
    My one gripe, if I had to choose one, would be the REC TEC app lacking an alarm that will actually go off when the phone is locked or the app is running in the background. For me, this isn't enough to mark it down at all but it is literally the ONE thing that I wish I could fix. Great grill!

    Absolutely love this grill. This is my first pellet grill. I have made tri tip, stuffed burgers and a few other things. Everything turned out great. All my friends that have treagers or green mountain are jealous of mine. Customer service is the best I have ever dealt with.

    I have been a charcoal guy for pretty much all my life. I decided to try this pellet grill. It was the best decision I could have made. The flavor and the ease of controlling the heat was great. I have recommended this grill to many friends. I had a small issue with one of the handles. I contacted them and they immediately sent me a new one. Can't say enough about recteq, they have answered all my questions about the grill before and after I bought it.

    Like most reviews I read, my only regret is not ordering it sooner. I absolutely love the Stampede. Such a versatile grill. I’ve cooked a pulled pork, chopped pork, chicken breast, sausage with onions and peppers, corn on the cob, and even a pineapple upside down cake. Everything has been a hit. Thinking about buying the Trailblazer for our camper. Customer service is top notch. Do yourself a favor, stop contemplating the purchase, and get one immediately. You will not be disappointed.

    Awesome smoker / grill. The best burgers, steaks, boston butt, brisket I have ever had. Most of it barbecue cooked while I slept. Don't waste time looking at other brands. REC TEC has the best!!

    Awesome First Impression

    Walt Rogers -

    Had my Stampede delivered on 8 Oct, and I couldn't be more pleased. Props to UPS Freight for delivering on Columbus Day! Purchased the grill,the Cattle Drive bundle, along wiht the large mat and smoke vent covers. Everything came securely packaged and in great shape. I watched Ray's hardware comparison video but the video does no justice. The hardware is some seriously heavy duty stuff. Stainless Steel cooking grates was one of my must-haves when I was comparing grills, and I love the quality stainless steel in this product. Assembly was super easy. My stampede was delivered at 11:00 am and by 1:00 I was doing the burn-in. I made some cheese brats for supper, and I used the wifi to operate the grill and monitor the cook. Worked perfectly. Brats turned out awesome, but I realized I had to fight the urge to constantly check them so they wouldn't char. I think I'll get used to it though ;-).

    Overall, an outstanding first impression. Rec Tec definitely got it right with the Stampede, and I expect I will be singing its praises for a long time to come
