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.

    Acclaimed Customer Service was less than expected

    Michael McManus -

    I searched up and down and everywhere for the right pellet grill over the last several years. When it finally came time to finalize the selection the R-700 had started shipping.

    I really liked the color and the controller capabilities. I also kept hearing about the great customer service. I have owned the RT-700 for approximately 5 weeks now. My unit shipped with a defective WIFI controller - it happens. I quickly contacted Customer Service via phone - this was a Saturday - and some did try to help me. It turned out I needed to talk to a technician on Monday and was told I would get a call then. No call on Monday so I finally called THEM back. I was told a technician would call me back. That did happen and he quickly determined I needed a new controller. I was also told that some goodies would be shipped my way to help offset the inconvenience.

    They did ship me a new controller. However I received no instructions and no additional call. Fortunately, I'm hand enough with electronics that I figured out the shelf disassembly to remove the old controller, hook up the connections to the new controller and put everything back together. Success. Though a pretty big leap of faith that the average customer would be able to do this with no guidance, no instructions.

    I received no follow call. I received none of the goodies. To be clear, I don't care about the goodies as much as care about a company doing what they said they would do.

    I love this grill, however, I was less than satisfied with the customer service experience.

    After reading numerous reviews I decided to purchase the 700 and man I glad I did. All the food has been extremely flavorful and moist can’t wait to try a beef brisket.

    I would Recommend the RecTec to everyone.

    had a kamado before. this is the first pellet smoker ive owned. the grill was easy to set up everything fit perfectly. first cook was a pork shoulder. brought it to movie night at my cigar club. everyone was impressed especially since ive never made a pork butt before. Even the texans stated it was first rate. im a total fan

    all I can say is HELL YEAH!

    Bobby Beckmann -

    Almost perfect

    Bill Basham -

    I was so excited to get this uni and became more so as I put it together. I appeared well built and sturdy which it pretty much is. Two things that kept it from being perfect and getting five stars are

    1. I ordered the cart and an extra shelve which were not shipped. When I called I was told that the cart would be here in July and the shelf sometime in June. I wish I had been informed of this at the onset. Would it have changed my purchase? I am not sure.

    2. It appears that the lid on my machine is bent on the left side which allows smoke to escape and causes the outside to discolor a lot on that side.

    This is a great piece of equipment, almost perfect!

    almost perfect grill.

    robert chiasson -

    Don’t get me wrong I love my Rec Tec ! The only issue I have is , and I knew this going into my purchase , was that I wouldn’t be able to sear . That’s my only issue .
    I bought my grill decked out with the competition base , the front shelf and the cold smoker . Use it every weekend since I’ve had it . Maybe Rec tec comes out with a sear
    Component that somehow mounts to the grill ? Make it available and I’m all over it!

    Amazing as promised

    JP -

    I researched pellet grills for over a year. I am very happy with this one. I belive they all make good food, but I wanted one that would last forever. Very well built and incredibly solid. Holds temperatures perfectly. Easy to sink to my wifi, which is an amazing feature. I am going to go broke buying meat to smoke every weekend. This is my new favorite hobby. I would recommend this to everyone. Plus an unbeatable warranty.

    Amazing Customer Service for a great product

    James Palatucci -

    I could not be happier with the customer service provided by George. I had an issue with my grill and he found a solution. It was great to deal with him. I cooked a Boston Butt and Turkey for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it.

    AMAZING Customer Service is TRUE TRUE, TRUE!

    Steve J. Michalica -

    The 700 is my 1st ever pellet grill purchased after about a year of research. I've rated it 5 stars based on quality of build along with the superior service of Rec-Tec. I'm still a novice at actual use and I only have experience with gas & charcoal grills to compare, My main concern during research was how it would perform grilling (searing) steaks etc. I prefer to own only one grill and I'm very happy with the results using a searing kit on the 700.
    About Rec-Tec and (AMAZING) customer service... everything you've heard is TRUE. After receiving (earlier than I expected) my 700 and assembling it... a pretty simple process... it wouldn't start up. A call to Rec-Tec connected me with General Manager Ben Lesshafft who talked me through a series of diagnostics. Long story short... the 700 had a defective controller. Ben had me switch some things around to make the grill function while a new controller was quickly shipped out. I smoked my 1st pork shoulder the next day. The new controller arrived a day later along with VERY GENEROUS compensation for my troubles. After a simple install everything worked as designed.
    Going on 40 years as a restaurateur... I'm responsible daily for customer service on our part and almost daily with customer service from vendors. We attribute our success in great part to our high level of service and choose vendors on based on theirs. I can honestly say that Ben at Rec-Tec provided possibly the best customer service I've ever experienced.
    Now I just need to perfect my pellet grill technique... I will gladly consume any mistakes along the way!
