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

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.

    Best Damn Smoker Ever!

    Big Mike -

    Best Damn Smoker Ever! All the guys at work have other brands purchased from Big Box Stores and they have ALL have had problems, even the New W brand had an issue the first day out of the box. I have had my 590 for a year and have burned 13 bags of pellets with no issues and holds temp to with in 2 degrees even during winter freezing temps here in MO. TIP: take the time to fine tune all three probes. 2 external and 1 internal, easy to do and found on You Tube

    Best decision ever!

    Mark Render -

    This grill takes the work out of grilling, fantastic temperature control. No more worries about flare ups burning meat, steaks are so moist and full of flavor. My only regret is that I didn’t buy one sooner. I enjoy grilling now and love trying the recipes on the Rec-Tec app.

    Best grill ever

    I absolutely love this thing set the temp and walk away sure beats stoking the firebox all night. Every cook comes out perfectly I think I'll buy the bullseye to accompany this so I can smoke and grill at the same time.

    Best grill I've ever owned

    David B. -

    I have only had my beast for a few weeks but my wife hasn't had to cook any meat since the day it arrived, my kids actually eat for a change and my wife has told everyone she knows how much she loves the food that comes off of it. This is my first pellet grill and it has made me feel like a freaking chef which I contribute solely to flavor this grill adds. Customer service has also been nothing short of top notch just like everyone who has a Rec Tec will tell you. I look forward to many years of grilling on this beast of a machine!!

    Vanessa Garrido

    I absolutely LOVE this smoker. It definitely has elevated my bbq game and every smoke has just gotten better and better as I learn. Even as a newbie, this smart grill makes it so easy. My family and friends love the food 😁 I can’t wait to try out more recipes

    Best I've Ever Used

    Scott Gaspar -

    With close to 20 years of professional competition BBQ (16 on a stick burner and 4 on pellet grills), my new Stampede is without a doubt the best by orders of magnitude. Will continue to purchase and recommend Rec Tec to others!

    Best investment I have made

    Vince M -

    From assembly to the initial burn in to my first cook, the Stampede has been the best investment I have made for myself ever. Where has this grill been my whole life? Ribeyes, boston butt, wings, salmon, all have come out perfect. Love this thing!!!

    Best smoker I will ever own

    Ken -

    Bought the 590 because the 700 was out of stock. Wanted one 4 years ago but purchased the Traeger because it was cheaper, what a learning experience! So far, after 3 months of using the Recteq, all I can say is that is I am in love with this smoker. The temps hold perfectly, briquet, butts, fish, anything I throw on holds the temp and flavors perfectly. My Traeger was given away to my neighbor, my Oklahoma Joe stick burner is now an orphan, I am in love with this smoker.
