1.     Build Quality

This grill is built like a tank. 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.

recteq features stainless steel grates, firepots, heat deflectors, and drip pans. They also include a stainless steel logo and smoke cap, with 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. Additionally, we added an interior light for those late-night cooks. 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, bar none. The RT-700 comes with a 6-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.

    "Hell yeah!"

    0 -

    "Hell yeah!" These were the first words that came out of my mouth as soon as I hit the On button on my smartphone and heard my new Bull light up!!! How did nobody come up with this sooner and thank you Rec Tec for doing so!<br><br> My first days on the Bull have been at or below 35 degrees with rain and wind , it didnt care . It stays true to temp and didnt burn more than 1/4 pellets in over 10 hour total run time . My Weber gas grill would had burned almost a tank and blown out in the wind trying to cook down low. <br><br><br> This grill makes anybody a pitmaster. You have at the tips of your fingers instant temps from two on board food probes ,no lifting the lid or misplacing the temp probe. Hellyeah!!<br><br>Lastly the customer support is spot on. When I got my Bull the freight driver said they lost my pellets and told me to call the shipper .So I did and before the truck left down the street I was getting a email confrimation that another order of pellets was on its way with no questions asked. <br><br> I'm blown away at this grill and if you have any doubts go online. Where everyone has no holds barred opions and see how many negitive ones you find about this product. I tried and couldnt find one! So i had to buy it.

    "The Bull"

    Mark Stibrany -

    I had owned a Green Mountain Smoker and I gave it away.<br><br>When I first opened the box I could see the difference. Very happy with my new smoker. Quality workmanship.<br><br>I would like the 700 to have been in red but that is just a color preference.<br><br>I have already recommended it to several people.<br><br>Thanks for a great product!

    10 year Traeger user goes rectec

    Don McKenzie -

    I have been a loyal Traeger user for 10 years that I bought from Costco. Unfortunately I’ve returned 3 of them through the years for not working(stopping in middle of cook, loud popping noises from auger, and terrible peeling of paint inside and corrosion!) I bought the bull last week and this thing is hands down a way better built grill(stainless steel) than the cheaply made Traeger ! Love this bull and the customer service is lights out! I had the 999.99 Traeger that Costco sells and this bull blows it away in EVERY aspect! Yes I lose my return at anytime policy at Costco but there is a 6 year warranty on the bull and I have a pretty good feeling that Rectec would bend over backwards even after 6 years!

    This is by far the best grill/smoker that I have ever used. I have had mine for a few weeks now and have grilled New York strips, chicken, burgers, and even seared some Salmon on it. All came out PERFECT!! I brought my grill to work last week and grilled some New York strips on it for my co-workers. All of my co-workers loved the way the steaks came out and the way the grill operates. Absolutely amazing!! Some of my co-workers will be buying themselves one soon as well.

    1st pellet grill I’ve owned and overly impressed

    Terry -

    Grill arrived without the comp cart, called and RecTec sent 1 out the same day, great service.<br>I live in Michigan and have only been able to do 3 cooks, all less than 40 degrees outside temp and the grill has held within 2 degrees of the set temp, the WIFI is awesome too, have not touched the control since I linked it. Can’t wait for warmer weather to really enjoy the experience.<br>Anyone looking for a great grill this is it.<br>The Bull rules.

    the best grill on market

    Shipping *****<br>Assembly *****<br>Build quality ****<br>Customer service *****<br>Quality of food *****<br>I received an error 2 on the initial burn off. This is the fan not working. When I opened the grill it exploded, singed my hair on my arms and face. When I called customer service I didn’t event get the story out before a new fan was on the way. There clearly needs to be a warning if you get an error 2. The grill has been running flawlessly every sense. I’ve been impressed so far.

    50 Million Elvis fans can't be wrong

    Andrew Peterson -

    Because I'm that kind of person, I put in an absurd amount of research into what would be my next grill (coming from an old Charbroil offset smoker that I got about 10 years of good use out of). I made the decision that the new on was going to be a wood pellet grill. Then a lot more research into the various manufactures and models and you just can't find people that have issues with their Rec Tec. Reading through the FaceBook group either meant that everyone was under the spell of some magic smoked meat elixir or this was something you don't find in 2019: a well engineered and manufactured product that the company stands behind. Shipping was fast, packaging was top notch, assembly was easy. First run was two 6 pound Boston Butts - perfection and easy. Second up I tried some steaks with the sear plate - I worried that as a high heat grill this might be lacking and I'd have to buy a small propane grill for those quick direct grill nights. Yeah, so the steaks were perfect and pretty darn fast too - from start up to when they came off the grill was about 40 minutes. The sear plate is a must - 450F for 4 minutes a side and they were medium rare perfection. Then tried 3 racks of ribs - again perfection. As pretty much every other comment you'll find says, I'm saying the same: this thing is strong, sturdy, easy to use, and with amazing results. You can stop doing your own research now and do what I did: order one.
