    A solid Beast

    Abraham -

    The bull is made of quality stuff. Just take a comparison (look, touch and feel) with the competition at the local store. You get what you pay for!!

    A versatile grill for feeding just the family or hosting medium sized parties.

    Tony B. -

    I bought this grill in November of 2018 and it's performing great! We use it multiple times a week, all year round. You can tell that our grill gets used often.

    I really like the heat I get from this grill and I've been able to hit temps close to 600˚. I am a huge fan of the stainless steel construction. I live in Oregon, so grills tend to rust. I don't have to worry about that on this one. It heats up very quickly and holds target temp consistently. The 40 pound pellet hopper is very useful and makes for lots of pleasant cooking sessions without having to keep refilling.

    One of the highlights is the cooking chamber light. If you have a hard time seeing what the meat looks like. Flip the switch and "Let there be light!"

    We use this grill to cook breakfast sausage, bacon, hamburger patties, pork, steak, seasoned veggies, chicken, brats and lots of other food. It's good for small amounts or parties with 20 to 40 people. For high volume cooking, I recommend the expansion rack.

    About a year in

    Rod Edgar -

    You see reviews all the time from folks who just got a product yesterday.
    That's not what I need, I want to know what you think after a while.
    Been nearly a year and the only regret I have is the $400 I spent on the previous smoker and the $500 on the previous grill. I could have nearly bought one of these guys for that!
    I really can't think of a bad thing to say about it, so I won't say anything and you can just assume I feel that everything about it is awesome.

    Absolute Believer!

    Mike M -

    I’ve had the grill for only a few weeks now, and I’m very much a novice when it comes to BBQ, but this grill is off the charts. Sometime back we received some very lean pork loin chops that the market substituted for the pork butt we had ordered. These boneless chops were about 1-1/2” square in cross section and about 6” long. They had DRY written all over them, and a test for the RT-700 if there ever was one. After brining for about an hour, smoked them for 1-1/2 hours at 225 to an internal temp of 140-145. They were moist, tender, succulent, and spectacular. Have also done ribs, chicken, brisket, and pork butt, all to great success. While I have no other pellet grill to compare to, this thing works like a champ. Highly, highly recommended.

    Absolutely Awesome

    Gabe -

    I’ll tell you right now if you are on the fence about this thing JUST DO IT!!! Been cooking years on everything from gas to stick burners to electric and this thing tops all of them. Super easy to use, unbelievable temp control, outstanding flavor and quality built all the way around. The app makes using the Bull so easy when you are doing other things. Would suggest this to anyone looking for a better experience with their cooks. Absolutely awesome!!!!!

    Absolutely Love it

    I received this bad boy at the end of March and have used it just about every weekend since. Maintains temperature like a champ. I highly recommend going with the larger Bull. It’s awesome.

    absolutely love my 700

    Paul Baudry -

    Coming from a Cajun Grill, this is my first smoker and find it wonderful. Since receiving it, I have smoked 3 briskets, 2 lamb roasts, 2 rack of lambs, countless pizzas and a few other items. It has gone beyond my expectations of how it would be. Although it wasn’t a necessity, I installed some high temp foam on the lid to keep the smoke in. That’s my only gripe about it is that there wasn’t a gasket on it. Other than that, the build quality is top notch. I fully recommend it to anyone wanting a smoker

    Absolutely perfect for the price


    I am extremely satisfied with this grill after owning it for several months now. I did have to offset the temperature readout on the controller after testing the temperature with a separate grill thermometer but once dialed in for the Kingsford pellets I am using, it has been perfect.

    The grill holds temperature very well. The build quality is superior to other lesser expensive grills I've seen like the Traeger and pit bosses. The wifi app works well. I use it every time I cook and it hasn't given me any trouble so far. I purchased some searing grates from grillgrates.com since Recteq didn't have theirs available for order and they are perfect. In my opinion, also a must have. This pellet grill smokes more than others I know with competing brands. I would recommend this grill to anyone looking for a stand up option that'll last!

    ABSOLUTLY top of the line!

    Doug Malawey -

    I have never been more impressed with a product. This thing is extremely well-built, and incredibly well-engineered. There are some big names in wood pellet smokers out there, and I don't have to mention them for anyone reading this to know who they are. If Rec Tec isn't at the top of that list yet, they will be soon!

    I personally bought the RT - 700. When I grill or smoke or barbecue, I like to have leftovers for days. I also like to entertain so I wanted a grill / smoker that I could put a pile of meat on. And I wanted the cold smoke box as well.

    The product itself is incredible, and their latest products, along with the PID controller, are Wi-Fi capable. I work in the maintenance industry, and anything heat-related has a PID controller on it, because they're accurate and dependable. And it works exactly like it supposed to on this wood pellet smoker as well. And I have to say, while it isn't a necessity, it was rather entertaining and comforting, to be able to watch the smoker temperature remain steady, and the internal temperature of my tenderloins that I had in the smoker this weekend, from the meat probes that were stuck in them, while I was at the movie theater with the family. Don't worry, I was in the very back row and the brightness on my phone was turned down very low. LOL but yes I could see the smoker remained at a constant temperature and I could watch the internal meat temperature slowly climbing. And while I didn't need to, I could have also adjusted the smoker temperature from my phone.

    Most important to me, as if that wasn't already enough, their customer service was what convinced me 100% that I was going with the right product and company. First of all before I spend this kind of money on anything I do my research. I couldn't find anything negative said about the company, the product, or their customer service. And in fact I ran across various comments and forums that talked about the excellent customer service, which is probably one of the most important things to me. You can have the world's greatest product, but if a company can't stand behind it or support you, I don't want anything to do with it. In trying to make a decision, I generated several questions on the morning I was getting ready to call in an order for my RT- 700 even before they were available yet. I wound up calling Rec Tec 5 times that morning. Each time I called somebody different answered the phone. Additionally each time I called, the person who answered was very friendly, took their time and made sure I understood the answer to my question completely. And after the fifth time, I apologize for bothering them so much that morning, and they reassured me no bother at all, to call anytime. So I placed my order and was like a kid at Christmas time waiting on Santa Claus.

    Jumping ahead, after using my Rec Tec pellet smoker the first time, I had some questions about technique. I was used to the old manual smokers, where I built the small charcoal fire in the bottom, and then fed water soaked hickory bark in the bottom of it for about 4 hours. The meat always turned out excellent! I will say for me and probably anybody else who is used to smoking that way, that there was a little bit of a learning curve about temperature and time, and wrapping in foil or not. It was Sunday and I didn't want to bother the guys, but I left an inquiry on their website. The following Monday morning I got a call from Adam, who spoke with me extensively on the phone, about various temperatures and techniques that worked well. And specifically regarding ribs he talked to me about the 3 2 1 technique. You'll have to ask him about it. But I was telling a friend of mine everything that I've said here, and more, and he was chuckling and impressed, that Adam called me back and spent 15 minutes on the phone with me talking about barbecuing. That's customer service!

    If you haven't figured it out by now, I'll tell you. If you invest in a Rec Tec, you will not regret it. These guys are tops!
