  1. Very cheaply made in China

    Unbelievably cheap. Made in China. Just the assembly will prove how poorly made this is. The welds broke while installing screws, it had surface rust on the metal when I unpacked it, because the stainless metal barely has any protective qualities, the assembly guide was clearly written by a Chinese engineer (who thought it would be funny to have Americans build it). It’s cheap, yet verrrrrry expensive. Buy something better.

  4. Purchase from Amazon or RecTeq directly?

    I had an issue so I contacted RecTeq directly and the customer service representative told me…Well, you bought the recteq through Amazon.So, apparently you are treated differently if you purchase from anywhere other than RecTeq directly.

  5. Fantastic smoker and customer service

    I have the 1250 and love it. Coming from a woodsmoker this really simplified my life. With a set it and largely forget it function, i can start the cook at 9pm, go to bed, wake up at 7am, make adjustments and continue cooking.The app is great, the FB community is bery helpful/lively, and the food tastes awesome.Quick warning: once you start smoking your own food, you won’t want to eat at steakhouses anymore

  6. Love my new rec-teq 1250

    Warms up way faster then my old big name Pellet grill. Plus it holds the temperature way better. This thing is a beast. If your in Utah run to their store in Lehi and check them out. Trust me you won’t regret it!!

  7. Awesome smoker!

    This is my new go to smoker. I have tried them all and this one of the the best higher in consumer models I have found. It replaced my traeger Pro34.So far I have noticed the smokes flavor is much better with the Recteq. Also the temp swings are more stable on the recteq. My only minor complaint with the Recteq is about the 7 month mark my meat probes started reading off the wall temps. From speaking to a friend that also has one he told me they will make it right with no hassle but I haven’t gotten around to calling. Not a deal breaker as this happens with all of them at some point and it sounds like they have good customer support from talking to friends that own them.I purchased directly from their website due to better bundle deals with pellets at least when I purchased. If you are going to want the extra cooking shelf and front shelf you may as well get the RT-1250 or you will regret not doing it as my friend did with his RT-700. I learned from his mistake and couldn’t be happier. Even though he has won come competitions with his RT-700.

  8. The ultimate smoke

    After years of using a stick burner, it was time to move to a pellet smoker. After a lot of research, both online and in stores, my buddy showed me his recteq and the search was over. recteq cannot be beat for the quality for the dollar. It is heavier duty than the equivalent Traeger and about the same price. I have run almost 200 lbs of pellets through my 1250 in less than 6 months and have smoked multiple briskets, pork butts, turkeys, chicken thighs and hamburgers and all of the food has been superb every time. I love the ability to control the smoker temp and monitor the meat temps (using included probes) with my phone over WiFi. It has been extremely reliable with zero hiccups. I have not needed it, but recteq customer service is legendary, from what I hear. I have used rectec pellets exclusively and have liked the flavor their smoke gives the food.I am extremely satisfied with my choice to buy the 1250.

  9. “Your last grill”

    Where do I begin? This is by far the best constructed grills/smokers there is.I was in the market for a large smoker and spent months researching all kinds. I purchased the RT-1250 and couldn’t be happier. This smoker is built like a tank! I have used it to smoke so many things from appetizers to main courses like ribs to even dessert. Everything comes out fantastic. You truly can just set the temp and walk away, the Recteq RT-1250 will take care of the rest.This smoker produces really clean smoke flavor. I’ve noticed it doesn’t produce as much bark or smoke as my previous smoker, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Pellet smokers are known for that.Overall, I would buy this smoker again in a heart beat. It has gone above and beyond my expectations and this will truly be the last grill you ever purchase because it can do it all. You won’t need another grill/smoker.

  10. Rec Tec Grill King period

    This grill is the bedt dam thing since sliced bread, i have cooked compeditive now cook for my big family i have a huge wood pit i love but i done a lot of research and my friends have got these i bought it because all it does you can set it go to bed get up temp right where u set it also temp heat will turn up to 700 degrees got me a cheap pizza oven and stone now we have the best pizzz at low cost the way we wont it many more things i just say buy it you will dam sure like it i love it

  11. Don’t have one? You NEED one!

    My second Recteq. I handed my old model down to my son in law, and bought this newer model. I wanted the sliding grill shelf, the built in temp probes, and the wifi that my old model didn’t have. I also like the black color rather than the orange of the old model.Recteq makes a fantastic smoker. Great customer service too. I had to replace 2 different parts over the 5 years or so that I had it, and it was super smooth.Very good temperature control. I also have the cold smoking box add on, which I use more frequently as a warmer than a cold smoker – it’s very handy for that.

  12. Great product!!

    Very well built product and we are loving it. The only thing I was disappointed in was the cover. It was to tight and I ripped it the first time I put it on. Also I wish they would have sent installation instructions with the grill. But other then those 2 things we are loving the grill. By the way I did send them my concern on the cover and they offered to send a new one out immediately. I declined because I want to find something different. But great customer service!

  13. Just Awsome

    Really a nice smoker. All stainless looks good heats to 700 degrees holds the temperature perfect and love the bull horn handles.

  14. Super happy with my purchase

    Recently purchased my first recteq after reading tons of positive reviews everywhere about their products and customer services. I love this thing. I used to have a smaller smoker from a different company and it had massive temperature swings all the time which frustrated the hell out of me. I’ve used it several times in the last two weeks and i must say unless i need to open the lid it sits at temp amazingly. Love it. If i had to say anything negatively it would be hard but the temperature probes seem to need to be recalibrated as they were off by a good 10-15 degrees when i check it with my thermapen. Oh and not really a negative but the cover is super form fitting to the grill lol. But the smoker itself is money.

  15. They will make it right

    Product arrived damaged. One quick call to Recteq and they had the issue resolved in no time at all. Fantastic customer service.

  16. Damaged on arrival, broken sensors after ~8 uses.

    Grill arrived in sealed box w/ ripped side. Opened it up and a few things were wrong. The legs were malformed and I had to use pliers to get them to stick into place properly. Took quite a bit of force.In addition to that, the stainless shelf has a sizeable dent in it, it was on the side where the box was damaged.To top it off, I think the RTD has died after only 8 cooks, all using foil tins so no grease fire etc. Actual temp reads 370+ immediately after turning it on. Hopefully the new part get here quickly – warranty claim was painless 🙂

  17. Delivered poorly but amazing grill !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rating this a 2 right now, due to the following then a 5 after used. … so basically – I got home yesterday from work and this 300 pound pallet was at the end of my driveway – soaking wet, only wrapped around the top area – thus the bottom cardboard was soaked due to a storm with heavy rain and wind. So today have to get a hand truck and maneuver it up my driveway to my house (had to leave down by road over night). What if i was not able to do this? Amazon always gets all items close to my house and never leaves by the road for every passerby to see. This was delivered without any common sense what so ever. We will see if it even fits together at this point….SO… make sure you use 2 people to put this together…. very well built and heavy parts… was super hot out so took my time to put together… meanwhile this company customer service made sure my purchase was worth every pennie and it is… changed from 2 stars to 5 stars… This is an amazing grill and first smoke was ribs and chicken… PLZZZ make sure you add delivery instructions to your order though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially if you have a long driveway…..

  18. Worth every penny!

    And to think I almost settled for a Traeger! We had actually ordered a Traeger from Costco. We ordered it to be already set up and ready to go. Every time it was delivered, ( actually had to send it back three times) there logistics crew delivered it dented in several places. We had them put it back on the truck each and every time. After the third time we just requested a refund. Ordered from Amazon the recteq, it actually came early, my husband put it together himself, and we’ve been in smoker heaven ever since.We are in love with our pellet grill and so happy we switched to this brand. The app works great, I actually do all of the setting from my phone app, it would be better if they expanded their recipes on the app. Not much to choose from, but there are plenty of recipes on YouTube , I even use the recipes on Traeger site. Very even cooking really holds its temperature. You will not be disappointed with this purchase, pallets go on and on forever!
