    Best Pellet Grill Ever!

    0 -

    I've been a "Stick Burner" for over 50 years. Having grown up in South Texas, with plenty of Mesquite and Oak, I learned how to BBQ just about everything, including Rabbit, Cabrito, Venison, Pork, and of course Beef Brisket.
    As any good Stick Burner knows, Brisket and Whole Hogs (Wild Hogs in my case) are overnight cooks. However, in between tending the fire, there was plenty of time for talking with old friends, playing Dominoes and yes, there might have been just a few Beers consumed as well. In addition, the younger group was provided the opportunity of learning by experience and understanding what it takes to produce "As Good As It Gets" BBQ. Low and Slow was always the name of the game.
    After all this time, it was a bit of a challenge to convince myself there might be something better than burning sticks and staying up all night to get those same great results. It took about 2 years of research, but when REC TEC came out with the RT-700 "Bull", I decided to pull the trigger and I'm very happy I did.
    After Baby Back Ribs twice and 12 pound Briskets twice, all of which came out every bit as good as I could do on my old Offset Stick Burner, and without staying up all night tending the fire! Yes, the first overnight cook I was still unconvinced and checked the REC TEC every hour, or so, only to find it humming along at the 225 degrees set point.
    I've done all the research and I'm convinced REC TEC is the best Pellet Grill available. And after using my "Bull" for 4 long cooks, with difficult to get right meats, 2 of which were overnight, I can honestly say it has significantly exceeded my expectations. If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
    Don't wait any longer if you are looking for a Pellet Grill, as you will not do better than the REC TEC RT-700 "Bull". The delivery time was about 3 weeks, but well worth the wait.

    Best Pellet Grill. Period

    Trey Powell -

    I am very pleased with my recent purchase of a RECTEC pellet Grill. These products are superior in quality to their competitors as they use 430 stainless steel that does not rust. Other pellet grills that I have used have begun rusting on the inside immediately on the first use and that is because they use inferior steel. They even coded it with grease so it doesn’t rust before it gets to you. Every part of this grill is Quailty and you can feel how heavy the parts are when you lift them and move them during use. My favorite feature is that it is WIFI connected and I can check it and control it from my cell phone… This is a standard feature. I highly recommend RecTec.

    Best Pellet smoker

    0 -

    The RT-700 is the best quality smoker in this price range with a lot of extras the prior model did not have. I am really enjoying the stainless housing and dual probe upgrade. The unit is holding temperature within 5 degrees across the large smoking surface. I was going to go with the smaller unit but am glad I didn’t as I filled it up my third time using it. It’s worth every penny and then some.

    Best pellet smoker on the market

    I’ve owned three other pellet smokers and cooked on many more. The new stainless model is built better than anything I’ve seen on the market. You can feel the quality from weight of the handles to the porcelain coated lid. There are several other brands with comparable cookers, but none come close to matching the value of Rec Tec. My only suggestion is to redesign the smoker box or handles so that the door of smoker box will open if owners would rather turn their lid handles outside instead of inside.

    Best purchase ever

    Barry Caver -

    I have owned many charcoal and gas grills over the years. They have served me for what they are. A friend of mine recommend Rec Tec, which I had never heard of. Any large purchase I make, I do my homework and research. After looking at the Green Egg and Green Mountain, I chose the Rec Tec. Boy, I haven’t been disappointed to all of the hype. This smoker has brought back my love for outdoor cooking and impressing and pleasing my guests with great meals. I have not had a bad experience at all. I also encourage customers to the follow the Rec Tec owners page on Facebook. You can ask any questions and learn so many new ways to cook all kinds of delights. Enjoy!!
