Rec Tec Pellet Grill VS Weber Kettle – Grill Comparison

I wanted to get a side by side comparison of how the Rec Tec Pellet Grill performs in reference to flavor and moisture when compared to the Weber Kettle. There’s only one cook that can tell us for sure and that’s what this video is about. Lets see which grill can produce the best bbq, the pellet grill or the charcoal grill?

Thank You so much for checking out the video.

Nice compare! Just ordered my Rec Tec 700 and I have the Weber as well (15 years old and still kicking). Can’t wait to try these same cooks as you! I’m subscribing… lets get you over the 1k mark and get you earning!

Boomer Taylor says:

If you want juicy white on the charcoal, same deal as hear. Indirect at about 250°F. Don’t spatchcock your bird. Rub the outside with lemon juice then massage in your rub. Stuff it with citrus and herbs and cook it breast down.
About 20 minutes before done, flip the bird over to plump the breast. It’ll squirt you when you stick a fork in the breast.
Do turkeys the same way for the best ever.
If you can’t or won’t pay for expensive BBQs…
I turned a 50 gal drum into a BBQ/smoker (quarter the drum, don’t cut it in half) put turkey or chicken in center, no coals, with charcoal on the both sides and use smoke tube or box… Or just throw wet chunks on the coals now and then.
No need to over think a cooker. $50 worth of drum, grates (expanded metal for coal bellow, oven racks to cook above), cut in a couple slider vents, a couple pieces of angle iron and some hardware will do your food serious justice.
“White Trash BBQ” is here to stay… lol

Erik Carlson says:

Thanks for doing these tests… I’m always curious and do quite a few tests myself… keep them coming, and Great cooking!

Riley says:

A good friend of mine bought a rec tec like yours a year ago…While it’s decent, it never has that deep smokey flavor like my Big Joe or even my Weber kettle. May as well just cook it in an oven with liquid smoke injected instead of the rec tec…Love your vuds, though!!

Slappy Joe says:

I personally think that a whole bird should be done at a higher heat on the weber. Faster cook, less smoke, less drying, and a quality “smoke roasted” chicken. rec tec is a smoker before it’s a grill and the weber is a grill before it’s a smoker. This same concept video could be done in reverse at a higher heat (or even trying to grill a fully spatched bird like that instead of smoking).

Pedro Arellano says:

Did you also use the Rectec smoke or just the tube smoke? What kind of wood did you use in the Weber. Did you use the same wood in both?

Jay McDonald says:

Since I love thighs, that would’ve been my choice for dark. We’ve had “the best chicken ever” according to the boss since our Rec Tec 680 arrived in August ’17 & that’s who I have to please ;). I don’t even inject most times with chicken my results are so bomb. Now what pellets are in the tube & what are you using in the hopper?

Brian Petterson says:

personal question, what kind of shampoo do you use?

Jar Test says:

Thanks i wanted to get a weber for a while now and your total honesty made the call. Power is a problem where i live but i was worried that quality might suffer a little but seeing what i saw here now today. COOL!!! Holidays this year will be one to remember for my family and me. Thanks again

Dan Ross says:

I find rubbing w oil results in much, much juicier meat. I’m interested in the pellet grill! Looks easier.

NeedaBoom says:

You really need to get a slow n seat for the weber. Just makes the kettle one of the most elite cookers on the market. And a lot loss mechanical components that will break.

OhioDan62 says:

I own both and love both for different reasons, I smoke steaks on the Rec Tec and reverse sear on the Webber, it’s awesome!

Four Vanks says:

Great video as always!!

Keep the smoke rolling, brother!

guitarchitectural says:

Thanks for doing this! Have you done something similar with pork/beef? I’m trying to decide if I should pull the trigger on a camp chef pellet grill – the convenience would be really awesome to have. Trying to decide between a 22″ weber with pellet grill or a 27″ weber with slow n sear and smoke EZ (and probably a bbq guru!).

Jason Narmore says:

Weber smoke flavor is so much better

Gary Bowman says:

Why do you need the extreme smoke tube? Does the rec tec not put enough smoke out?

Brown Outdoors says:

I’m guessing the difference in the RT-640 and the RT-700 are night and day,I see videos of the bull and it puts out lots of smoke

Happy Man says:

I have used the Ultimate blend and they are good, but once I switched over to Lumberjack 100% woods, my RT-700 now out smokes my Kamado Joe in flavor, and does this for hours on end unlike my KJ unless I keep tossing in wood chunks. I no longer use a smoke tube and actually get concerned about too much smoke flavor on long cooks with the RT. I did enjoy your video, but you didn’t mention the bitter flavor of the smoke the charcoal grills gives off. The Rec Tec/pellet grill’s smoke flavor is very clean and not bitter tasting. This allows the rubs and sauces to really shine through and are much tastier. I’m glad I have both types of cookers, but the pellet grill is my main go to and I rarely ever use the charcoal grill anymore now that I have the pellet grill and smoke flavor dialed in. There is a learning curve on the pellet grill.

Russyl Royer says:

Some people I know that have pellet grill smokers use Liquid Smoke as a binder to give food a stronger smoke taste. They refuse to use anything but the pellet grills because it is easy and the amount of moisture the final product always has. Great video!

Dan Ross says:

You need to rub the birds with olive oil prior to dry rub

James Dempsey says:

HI.Mike. great video on the birds and comparison. keep on smoking bro.//

betoxyz68 says:

You got a radio voice….. good review!

DH Jam1 says:

Nice birds, when I do my chicken on the weber I put the breast away from the fire and the legs closer, you did half and half, i was wondering if one side of the breast meat was juicier than the other?

Travis Fisher says:

Thanks for sharing your love of ‘que. Cheers from Easton!
