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.

    Best Smoker on the Market

    John Pora -

    After doing extensive research for a pellet smoker, I purchased the RecTec. This grill is AMAZING. I have used it a dozen times in the 3 weeks I have had it and everything has turned out perfect. If you are looking for a pellet smoker, look no further.

    Better than expected

    John M -

    My Stampede is awesome, I love the fact that it allows me to set the temp and walk away, my first two cooks were amazing. The rec tec service is for real also, had a small problem with delivery (small dent on the pellet hoper and one call to customer service had a replacement part to my home in a few days. Very happy with the product and the company.

    Better than My Other Pellet Grill


    I have owned a Traeger for about seven years. It has never given me any smoke flavor even on long cooks. Customer service was another problem. For those reasons , I researched RecTeq.. I really wanted that smoke flavor. I bought the RT590 . I have had it only a few days so not much cooking so far. However the two Boston Butts, I cooked yesterday are pretty awesome. I love this grill, and will be selling the Traeger.

    -Build quality is A+
    -WiFi connection is consistent and accurate
    -The Rec TEC app is reliable and well done
    -Temp is consistent

    Bought another popular brand on a holiday sale from a big box home store and it sucked. Took it back, did some research, and then bought the Rec Tec Stampede. Everything I have cooked on it so far has been awesome!

    Very well built. I was short a couple items but support shipped overnight all was good. Can’t wait to start using this great looking unit.

    Built Like a Sherman Tank!

    Brad -

    Going from Traeger to the Rec Tec Stampede was like getting my first car after riding a bike. Assembly consists of screwing the legs on. You can roll it anywhere using one hand. The best of all is the smoke output. Incredible! I really don’t need a smoke tube anymore. The WiFi feature is awesome, I smoked a brisket from my bed and while in church on Easter Sunday. All I had to do was slice it when I got home. Highly recommendable

    bulletproof, even in harsh Canadian winters.


    I really dont have enough good things to say about this grill. Easily hits and maintains temp to 500f. I ordered this last july and it hasn't once let me down. It doesnt matter if its +30c or -30c, it has been absolutely bulletporoof. The app makes it incredibly handy to check my temps as i go about my day, my only complaint is that the temperature alarms in the app have never worked.

    Burning pellets in auger

    Matt Johnson -

    Iv only used this grill a few times and I love it so far! The last time I used it when I powered it down and went into eat some great smoked pork, came back out about 30 minutes later and the hopper was smoking bad!! Opened the hopper pulled all the extra pellets out that I could with out getting burnt and it continued to burn up the auger and into the hopper. Pretty scary if I didn’t come back out who knows why would of happen with 30lbs of pellets in there.

    Buy Rectec, you’ll never look back

    Jake -

    This was my first pellet grill and I wanted to wait a while before I posted a review. I can’t say enough good things about the 590. It is built great, looks great, and most importantly, it cooks great. If the rectec guys were closer to Texas, I’d wanna meet them and shake their hands. They’re doin special things out in GA!
