    This is an excellent grill. Its built a little lighter than I expected but after using the grill several times I have concluded that if the sacrifice is weight for options I want the options. A heavier grill would not cook any better. 1 short fall is the cart is a little narrow when moving it in and out of storage you have to be careful as it is top heavy. The wheels are great but the cart is to narrow. This should be an easy fix for a grill this good! I would buy this grill again.

    This think is a tank! Smoked a 8.5lb pork butt for my first cook and it turned out awesome! Easy operation and easy cleanup. Rookie move: forgot to lay down foil on the drip pan at 2:30am when I threw the pork butt on but after spraying easy off on it when I was done the bunk just wiped right off. It’s all stainless steel inside so I won’t have to worry about it rusting down the road. I’ll be using this every weekend!

    Completely changed the way I grill

    Wizzz -

    Yep. All 5 stars. This grill is awesome, rock solid temperature control. I really like the app, super helpful for getting sides ready. Thing is solid, the shipping company gave it hell and it's was perfect on arrival. Easy setup with the video. The intro video says to cook chicken thighs first to season it, that's turned into our go to meal. Completely changed the way I grill.

    Consistent temperature is outstanding

    John Truitt Jr. -

    Wow is this a great cooker! I just used it in Ohio mid April with a windy cold front. the temperature never varied more than 1 degree.
    Push button start, wi-fi control. As we said in the Marine Corps, "Outstanding"!

    Continuously amazed!!

    I purchased my stampede about 3 weeks ago, shipping was even faster than I could have imagined. The build quality is incredible. This is the first smoker, or pellet grill, I have ever owned. I had never smoked anything before and already have done ribs, 2 chickens, a Boston butt, a turkey, reverse sear steaks, salmon, bbq chicken, burgers, and lots of veggies. Everything, and I mean everything, has come out amazing. I’ve done 2 all night cooks, and even went to see a movie with my family while we smoked a turkey today...the temperature is dead on steady no matter how long your cook is. Phenomenal product, and definitely get the sear grated as they make it just as good or even better than your propane grill for burgers and was spot on for the reverse sear steaks!

    Cooking made easier

    Will J. -

    The Stampede made cooking easier for my wife and I. That is why we bought it. And we are loving it. If there is one thing I would change. I would include the all weather vents. I cant figure out why something that is needed for outside use. Would be sold separately.

    Couldn't be happier

    This is my first pellet grill / smoker. It was a couple of years ago that I had discovered pellet grills and had been casually researching them. Despite having good results with ribs and pork butts on my trusting Weber Kettle for years and years, I didn't like how I was basically tied to it for the duration of the cook. I really wanted to be able to walk away and do other things while my food was cooking. During my research, the name Rec Tec kept coming up as one of the best brands for the money. I really wanted to buy one, but at the time there was the mini and the Bull. I felt the mini was going to be too small, and the Bull was just way too much grill. I was very excited when this new line came out and they introduced the Stampede. It was just what I waiting for. I liked the new design with all the stainless steel. I have owned it since September 2018 and I have cooked more meat in that thing in the few months I have owned it than 10 years of cooking with the Weber. With the kettle grill I'd do a pork butt, a turkey, and a couple of racks of ribs a year. In the Rec Tec, I have done several butts, brisket, burnt ends, bacon, smoked mac & cheese, crab legs, multiple rib racks, beef jerky, pizza, turkey, hametc. It's been so enjoyable to try things I'd never try before. I have a whole list of new things I want to try for 2019 and can't wait to get started.
