REC TEC Wood Pellet Grill Review
Nowadays grilling enthusiasts can be found almost everywhere and hence you see different sort of grills from different companies. The recent trend however suggests that mostly people are now into grills which are portable, so they can take it wherever they want, be it their friend’s place or when they go to camping.
REC TEC is not new when it comes to grills and their accessories; recently it launched its latest grill, Wood Pellet Grill which features Smart Grill Technology. The grill is not too small, hence not very portable but weighing at 250 pounds it isn’t too heavy either.
You can easily move it around, thanks to the rollerblade style wheels it has and you can also use locking casters so it doesn’t keeps on moving. Therefore, don’t worry about lifting it when you want to move it. It has quite decent cooking space of 680 sq. inches which also includes 9.5″ of heating area.
It features Smart Grill Technology which is quite useful and together with Proprietary PID algorithm it helps you to maintain the temperatures accurately from 180ºF to 500ºF in 5º increments. So it enables you to grill,sear, smoke and even bake because of accurate temperatures.
If you also use REC TEC Premium Hardwood Pellets (not included) with this grill then maintaining precise temperatures isn’t a difficult job at all. The overall design of the grill isn’t bad either. It seems well built (and strong) and according to people at REC TEC, this grill can last for years (let’s hope it does!).
For storage users get large bottom and side shelves whereas heat vents ensure that electronics are protected. Its modular construction allows you to individually replace the components. It has micro polished stainless steel bullhorn handles and the overall hardware is also constructed from stainless steel.
Some other useful features include its 4 hooks for tools, fail proof lid stoppers, interior light with easily removable dishwasher safe glass lens, rubber grommets at all wire through holes to prevent chaffing, 10 gauge stainless steel fire pot and 12 gauge stainless steel drip pan and heat deflector.
The best part is that since the heat comes from the wood, you also get that nice woody flavor in your food. Overall, REC TEC did a good job and an amazing thing is that the grill is backed by 6 year limited warranty… now that is something pretty great!
