Rec Tec 680 Review – After 200 Hours of Cook Time

Rec Tec 680 Review – After 200 Hours of Cook Time

We purchased the RT-680 a few months ago and have roughly 200 hours of cook time on it. We’ve cooked everything from briskets, boston butts, burgers, chicken, pork belly, and so much more. Since we’ve had so many cooks on the Rec Tec 680, we thought now would be a great time to provide an honest review and our thoughts on its performance.


Dan O'Brien says:

I’m on the market for a pellet grill and am leaning toward the Rec Tec. All of the negative reviews say their parts wear out quickly. Given that this question is 3 months after this initial review, is there any truth to it? Are you still enjoying the 680?

Tom F says:

You did a great job on the video. I like the beginning taken with I’m guessing, a drone. I almost bought the Rec Tec, but I got the Grills Grills SIlverbac. I don’t think you can go wrong with either. I gotta say that the Rec Tec does look waaay cool. Thanks for the post.

Great review, guys! Sounds like those guys at Rec Tec know what they are doing.

Also, you guys are adorable. Lol.

Thank you for your video

I have a mini. Had a major problem with it the inside pealed off. There customer service got me a replacement. The customer service seems like they mean well but mildly incompetent. With the warm weather coming I hope for no further problems.

Good review. I almost buy a rec tec but half the price i got a pit boss austin xl and can sear steaks.

douglas trimner says:

Had Rec Tec 680 for over a year know still looks great and works great. Not much compares to the price & quality. Makes cooking awesome food way too easy!

ColonelK0rn says:

I live 2 hours from RecTec’s warehouse in Augusta, and I have to say that I was on the fence about a few other grills, and your comment about lifting the lid was exactly the thing that sold me on the 680. Customer service is second to none. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another should mine go up in flames.

Michael Parsons says:

Just curious, how thick is the metal on this Rec Tec? Is it as thick as the Yoder YS640…I believe Yoder’s is 10 gauge.
