In doing research for wood pellet grills and smokers I had questions about the Rec Tec grills. Here are some of my top questions about the outdoor grilling system answered.
Do Rec Tec Grills ever go on sale?
Rec Tec Grills DO NOT go on sale. But they do offer bundle packages that will save you money on items you might have purchased anyway. They do offer financing with first payments being due 30 days after purchase. Monthly payments are available.
Who makes Rec Tec Grills?
Ray Carnes and Ron Cundy are the founders of Rec-Tec Grills. While the grill exterior is manufactured in China, the heart and soul of the grill, the computers are made in America. The powder coat is also made in the USA and the final assembly, along with quality control, takes place at the REC TEC Grill facility in Georgia.
Recipes to make on your Rec Tech:
Can you see, touch the grills and visit the Rec Tec facotry outlet before purchasing?
Purchasing a Rec Tec grill can be a big investment. I am anticipating this grill being the last grill I will purchase. You can read all the reviews on line but sometimes you just need to reach out and touch a grill. Visit the Rec-Tech showroom at 2004 Westside Drive, Augusta, GA 30907.
Why can't you purchase a Rec-Tech grill at a big box store?
You are not going to find Rec-Tech grills at your local Wal-mart or camping supply store. Selling to these dealers would add up to 30% to the purchase price so to keep the price of your grill as low as they can keep it, rec tech only has a showroom in Georgia and offers on line shopping.
How much does is shipping?
Shipping is free in the continental US for orders over $99. So you will not be paying a big freight shipping charge when you purchase your grill package. Orders under $99 will vary on shipping based on distance shipping and the weight of the products being shipped.
Can the Rec Tech grill be left outdoors?
The grills are built to be left outdoors but like any item that is meant for outdoor use, take care of it by covering it when not in use to keep it in optimal working condition. Be sure to keep the pellets dry. No one like to cook with wet pellets.
Can I just use wood chips from my wood chipper in my grill?
DO NOT use wood chips in your Rec-tech grill. Rec tech grills are designed to use pellets as the fuel.
What brand of pellets should I be using?
While Rec tech has their own brand of pellets, you do not HAVE to use them in your Rec Tech grill. Using other brands of pellets will not void your warranty but keep in mind not all pellets are created equal. Lower quality pellets could keep you from reaching the high temperatures you desire or maintaining the lower temperatures for the low and slow cooking that you love.
