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


Below are some undisputed facts that prove why recteq Wood Pellet Grills are the premier grill in the industry:


1.     Build Quality

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 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

recteq offers the best warranty in the industry at this price point. The RT-590 comes with a 4-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.

    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 Choice!


    Bought my RT-590 back in April. I was very hesitant about getting into the Pellet Grill market and trying something new. I am so happy that I decided to convert and I would never entertain going backwards. I have even convinced others to purchase a RecTeq with the results of my meals.

    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

    Awesome Grill

    I researched for a long time before pulling the trigger, and I hit a bullseye. I have done everything from ribs, that were awesome, to frozen pizza. Fatties to cornbread, everything turns out great. The WiFi was super easy to setup and is a great way to watch temps.

    Awesome grill, average lid

    Micah Hastings -

    For several years I have looked forward to getting a quality grill, which now I have. Everything about this grill is amazing except for one thing, the lid. To be fair, the rest of the grill is awesome and no other grill can compare. The lid, however, reminds me of a thin piece of sheet metal reminiscent of grills bought at the big box store. For the money that is being spent and the quality that Rec Tec is known for, I would have expected a substantially better lid than the one it came with. I spoke with a person at Rec Tec who informed me that he would bring this up in one of their meetings they have. If a new lid came out, I would happily purchase the higher quality lid. As far as the cooking and the rest of the grill, I cannot tell you enough how good it cooks and how much I love firing this up every night.

    Awesome Grills!

    Bryan Murphy -

    The quality is outstanding! The customer service is second to none! But the most impressive thing about this grill is that it has turned me into some who can smoke food for my family! Before the stampede, I had never attempted to smoke anything and now I am confident that with this grill I could smoke anything! If this grill can have a noob like me cooking like a pro...imagine what I could do if I had a clue! Awesome investment in our family a and awesome REC TEC family to join!

    Awesome Pellet Grill

    Jim -

    The entire process has been great from communication beginning with the purchase to where in the process the grill was right through to the delivery. Setup was a breeze and my first smoke turned out great. Made tri tip last weekends, reverse sear and it was delicious and simple.
    Thank you Rec Tec family for an amazing experience and looking forward to many more future smokes.
