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)! 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.


5.    Customer Service

    Awesome Smoker

    Bret -

    Best smoker on the market under 3500 without a doubt and awesome customer service. Nothing is perfect and things go wrong in shipping that is a fact of life so you must choose a company to do business with that just does it right. Rec Tec is that company! My unit obviously got a little banged up in shipping. I called the support line at 9:30 PM EST and Harry called me back in 3 minutes from his house. I wanted to know if I broke an already banged up unit trying to get it to work what would happen....he said we will ship you another one no questions asked. Done. I couldn’t get it to work so told them the next day and another one arrived two days later. Done. Great company and if possible even a better smoker/grill. Best smoker for the money on the planet without a doubt.

    This was my first RecTec. The 700 is amazing. The WiFi controller is on point. There will be absolutely no regrets when purchasing this grill. So far all my cooks have turned out fantastic. Best purchase ever!

    This grill is incredible. After babysitting a GMG Jim Bowie with 25+ degree temperature swings and dysfunctional Wifi, I'm able to focus on the cook with consistent temperatures, outstanding smoke, easy maintenance, and the finest support imaginable.

    The build quality is amazing. The materials are thick stainless steel everywhere you look. Assembly is simple and clear. It's no wonder this bad boy comes with a six year warranty. SIX YEARS...who does that?

    The Bull maintains my desired temperature and immediately connects to Wifi for remote monitoring. It cooks multiple briskets, rib racks, chickens, and salmon filets.

    I could not be happier with the grill, accessories, recipes, and Recteq's outstanding service. Their customer service is literally second to none. In my opinion, there is no other choice to consider.

    So I had a cheap pit boss, it sucked. I have cooked on some friend's pellet grills, Traeger and Daniel Boone. The RecTec absolutely destroys them all. It's fast, pellet efficient, very even cooking, amazing flavor, and I can turn it on from anywhere in the world from my phone. I cannot say enough good about this grill. The build quality can not be shown on their website either, but it is absolutely top notch. It's very heavy, very thick steel, even the wheels are much nicer than any grill I've ever seen. The only thing negative I can come up with is that the cover is a pain to get off and on as it's a little too tightly fitted in my opinion. Awesome design gentlemen!

    Awsome machine!

    Terry Jones -

    This pellet grill is amazing and I have no doubt it will last longer than any grill I have owned. Only downside is I think they went a little light on the legs. Grill shakes and wobbles even when cleaning the grates. I went back and ordered the cold smoke box and highly recommend it, I use it to keep things warm as they come of the grill and event the top of the smoke box makes a great place to keep stuff warm and serve off of. Cooked some bacon wrapped poppers before the burgers and set the pan of poppers on the smoke box and we stood around like Hank Hill and his crew snacking on the poppers, drinking beer and admiring The Bull while the burgers cooked.

    Awsome smoker except..

    Jeremy Lowder -

    This grill/smoker is a beast for the price. All stainless and pretty tough looking! I compete in KCBS and used it this past weekend for ribs(10th place). Everyone stopped and admired!!! I did get the competition cart and it's awesome. The only negatives I have at this point is that the control panel is a little overlooked and the cooldown mode doesn't completely cool it down. The control panel out of the box looks like and seems to be a sticker. I have to push it back on to make it stick flush, this needs to be addressed and I would give 5 stars. The cool down mode could stay on a little longer to accomplish the complete cool down. This may can be addressed with some minor tuning?

    AWESOME!! I have now had my RT 700 for a few weeks now and have done 5 cooks-9 meatloaf's, multiple racks of ribs, wings, whole chickens, and boneless turkey breast, and a 3 inch thick bone in rib-eye steak. everything turned out perfect!! the grill fires up and comes up to temp. in less time than my weber gas grill. this thing holds temps perfect thru out the entire cook. the quality of the grill is superb!! highly recommend the competition cart, makes moving the grill so much easier. everything about this grill is solid and tough. customer service to the best. was missing the pull bar when grill was delivered, contacted customer service and within minutes received email my part was ordered along with a couple of rubs for my trouble. everything you read and hear about this grill and customer service is legit!! AWESOME GRILL AND COMPANY!!!

    Beautiful Beast

    Mike A -

    Have had my Bull for a few months now and completely live it. Smokes like a beast. Have done ribs, butts, chickens, turkeys, chops, and even some biscuits on thanksgiving that turned out great. Only issue I have noticed so far is one of my thermometer temp probes is about 6 degrees off but it’s not a deal breaker, I just account for it and I’m good. Would love calibrate that individually but I wouldn’t drop a star for that.
