Below are some undisputed facts that prove why recteq Wood Pellet Grills are the premier grill in the industry:


1.     Build Quality

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. The ultimate outdoor grill by a mile, we encourage you to buy once and buy right instead of buying inferior products over and over. 


2.    Components

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)! Our automated self-cleaning shutdown mode virtually eliminates the need to clean our firepots. 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

With the most precise controller on the market, our proprietary Smart Grill Technology™ is designed to maintain temperatures to your desired set point. 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

You simply will not find a company that offers better customer service than recteq. Would you believe that each customer receives both co-founders’ cell phone numbers with their purchase? Well it’s true, and it’s our duty to make you feel as if you’ve truly become part of the recteq family.

    I will start with the one negative, the app disconnects all the time on both my Android and iPhone. That being said, closing and opening and it always reconnects right away. I waited to write my review until I had a chance to cook a few different items and everything has come out great. <br><br>As far as low and slow, I have made a couple pork butts, a shoulder clod, a couple chuck roasts, and a ton of ribs. Grill maintained temp perfectly even though the temperature outside was in the high teens and winds were gusting up to 25mph.<br><br>Higher temp cooking I have made some pizzas, burgers, and chicken wings. I made a pizza and wings in the oven at the same time and every guest preferred the Rec Tec. The Bull did take a good amount of time to get up to 400 F but again, temp was in the mid 20s and wind gusts were 20 - 25 mph so I was happy with the performance. Once the grill got to temp it did not fluctuate by more than a couple degrees.<br><br>Setup is easy, I did it by myself and it took maybe 90 minutes. I did get help adding the cold smoke box and I would not recommend doing that alone. The second set of hands was a huge help. <br><br>I went with the Grand Champion Bundle and would recommend it to everyone. I have made my own rubs and sauces for years but the rubs and sauces from Rec Tec are great and the Grill Grates and front folding shelf are a must in my mind. I have not had to use the extra interior shelves yet but I know they will come in handy this summer when I am cooking for 20-30 people.

    Received my grill about a month ago. So far I have smoked 2 briskets and a lot of salmon. I have always had trouble with getting a good brisket. This grill is idiot proof. Both briskets were excellent!!!
    <br>Grill is a quality item and heavy. Well designed and very functional. the internet control is also excellent. Even over long cooks, the variance between actual temperature and the set temp never seems to vary by more than 2 degrees. I would not hesitate to purchase this grill again. Quality product.

    I purchased the grill about a month ago in the company store. The salesperson was very accommodating and knowledgeable. This grill is a joy to use. It keeps temperature perfect and the Wi Fi controller enables me to do other things during a long cook. Very happy with my purchase.

    I've been thinking about getting a smoker/grill since my brother purchased a Yoder. That was more money than I wanted to spend. Last Christmas a friend of my brother's purchased an RT-680 and the prime rib he cooked was amazing! That settled it for me....I was fully prepared to purchase an RT-680 for myself and then the RT-700 was released. Lucky me as I was able to purchase the newest model along with the Pitmaster bundle. I love the whole works... I've made chicken, pork loin, and some fabulous ribs. My only complaints are small....with the bundle I purchased I got a Bullpen temp. probe....it is unreadable in full sunlight. I am also concerned that the grill cover is going to be a problem as there are a lot of sharp edges to work around. I would also like to say that I thought the wifi thing was a gimmick...I was totally wrong. I love it....so nice to have the convenience of being able to start my grill and monitor it from virtually everywhere....Great feature. That s is a great product and I look forward to using it for many years to come.
