471 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)! 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.


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.

    Customer Service

    Carl Priddy -

    Received my grill 3 weeks ago. Assembly was not complicated but it’s a whole lot easier with two sets of hands. Have cooked ribs, whole and quartered chicken and pork chops so far. All were delicious and I am impressed how well the controller holds the temperature you set. Within 1-2 degrees consistently.

    My only less than favorable comment was the length of time it took the company to ship my grill. Received an email the same day I purchased stating it was ready for pickup. The ship via truck lines. It was 8 days later after several calls that it finally left. On arrival and in packaging
    The grill cover that was part of the bundle was missing. I called and was told it was on order and should be delivered in 2-3 weeks.

    I just purchased my stampede RT 590 as my very first smoker, and have enjoyed everthing about it! very well built, great costmer service, and shipped damaged free. The assembly was a breeze, I had it built and running within 3 beers! I would highly recommend Rec Tec over any of the other name brands out there Thanks Rec Tec!

    Entire experience

    John Crenshaw -

    I am super happy with this grill in all ways but two , First I was disappointed to see MADE IN CHINA on the back. I assumed that it was going to say MADE IN USA considering the Georgia based operation. Secondly the free shipping only to california caused me to spend an additional four hundred plus dollars to get it to Hawaii which as you know is part of the USA! The local HOME DEPOT sells the "other" brand without the extra for shipping. In a nutshell I AM very happy with my new grill and look forward to lots of great meals. Sincerely John

    Excellent Smoker

    Richard -

    I've had my RT 590 for only about a full week now. This smoker is awesome. I never had one before and I'm having fun learning how to use a smoker. I had a couple questions and had contacted customer support. Very professional and answered all my questions. Outstanding customer service. This smoker is built very well and I'm sure will last for years.

    EXCELLENT Smoker!

    Steve and Anne Schweikert -

    We are so glad that we bought the Stampede RT-590! Our first "experiment" was beef brisket. We've never tasted such good meat, thanks to the Stampede. We will definitely get our money's worth and then some from this grill!

    Excellent Smoker! Lifechanging!

    One of the BEST investments I've ever made. Life changing!!
    Good solid build, hooked right up to wifi and has never lost connection, app is easy to use, this smoker makes the best food I've ever had in my life. Every day is a great day owning this 590.
    Perfect size for daily cooking for a family. Plenty of room for extra food if I have company over. Never had a problem with it. I enjoy it so much I've purchased every accessory to go with it so its worth saving money buying all of it when you first purchase it if there is a sale on accessories. Looking forward to buying more grills from Rec Tec to expand on this amazing hobby.

    Buying a grill online without being able to view it at a local store seemed risky but I am extremely pleased with my purchase. The unit is solid from top to bottom and then some. It took a bit to get the grill connected to WiFi but that was easily resolved my positioning the grill closer to the WiFi router. Being able to control the temperature of the grill and monitor the internal meat temperature remotely is amazing. The other day I fired up the grill, set the temperature to 225, added the chicken and left for our grandson’s t-ball game. While watching the game I opened the app, monitored the internal temperature, and when it hit 160 I remotely turned off the grill. By the time I arrived home the chicken was well rested and ready to eat. If you miss the charred taste of a regular grill, simply sear the meats before or after you smoke them. It must be a popular grill as it took nearly 6 weeks to ship and another week to coordinate local delivery with the carrier. The carrier did not show up for the scheduled delivery but delivered the grill the next day. The truck also did not have a lift-gate, which meant I had to help the driver unload and lift the grill to the curb. I would recommend this grill. You won't be disappointed.
