    Believe the hype


    I'm always skeptical when I see so many 5 star reviews, but I can say now that I'm a believer, and I highly recommend the RT-700. I've only had mine for a week now, but have cooked brisket, a pork butt, mac and cheese and chicken on it. This thing is for real. I've had and still have many different kinds of smokers (water/bullet style, charcoal cabinet, electric, and high-end offset) and the bull will hold its own against any of them. Plug it in, dial up the temp you want, walk away. It holds temp very well. I was very surprised by the amount of smoke it put out, and I mean clean smoke. I've seen and heard of other pellet grills not producing much smoke, but that's not the case here. The brisket I cooked had a beautiful color and smoke ring that wold compete with any stick burner. Stop thinking about it and do it. You won't regret it.

    Best all around grill/smoker I've ever owned.

    Eddy -

    I have owned the 700 for about a month now a came from an OK Joe stick burner. So far I love it. The grill holds temps perfectly and the app makes managing the cook a breeze. It barely uses pellets on an all day cook. The only Con would be that it doesn't put down the same amount of smoke flavor that the stick burner did, but my wife couldn't tell the difference. I love this thing, and would buy it again in a heart beat. Don't hesitate, get this grill! I can't wait to smoke some ribs from my boat on the water, on the app.
    I think I will be buying the kettle to get the sear I am used to on steaks. Remember this is a smoker that can grill. If your looking for a grill that can smoke, I would go another route, like the kettle.

    Best all around smoker/grill


    I purchased the RT700 and received it last week I was able to build it up (in the dark) with ease in about an hour and a half. The burn in process was simple and since have done bacon wrapped poppers, smoked wings and pork ribs. The temp control and consistency is out of this world and the LO Xtreme smoke setting works great to get that rich smoke flavor to set in on the meat. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the market looking for a grill/smoker. This is planned to be my replacement for a rotting propane grill and look forward to years of use! I also purchased the seat plates but haven’t had a chance to use them yet, but can’t wait!

    Best By Far!!!

    Carlos -

    Now this is what I call a GRILL!!! Fantastic quality... the heavy gauge steel is no joke! This thing is built like a tank. It is AWESOME! For the money NOTHING COMES CLOSE! I have had mine for almost a year and it has never let me down. The WiFi controls and the app are outstanding! The 6 year warranty is the best in the business! Don’t waste your time with anything else! Since I have bought mine I have referred several friends who have also purchased the RT-700 and they have loved it! You won’t be sorry you bought this!!!

    Best Decision Ever


    So glad I decided to get the Bull instead if the Treager. The construction and functionality make this an absolute treat to cook on. Very satisfied!

    Best decision of my life!!!!

    Tommy -

    I've been a life long Primo/Big green egg person but after purchasing this grill and using it I put my Primo up for sale. There is no comparison for the ease and flavor this grill gives. I cant wait to cook more on it only thing that I wasn't prepared for was needing a 2.4GHZ wifi for hook up but once i got that don't on the app its been off to the races. I will say I was torn between the RT-700 and the Traeger 650 ironwood but after extensive research and unbiased reviews comparing the too there is no doubt I made the right decision. Also the sauces and rubs are on point!
