REC TEC Grill Reviews and Ratings

Oct 16, 2018 | Grills, Reviews

Rec Tec Grills have always held high standards. As a result, their customers are accustomed to reliable and high-quality products. But with the introduction of the model tenaciously named The Bull, they have truly changed the game when it comes to the pellet grill industry. The Bull comes closest to the term smart-grill. It will leave you in awe both by its technical aspects as well as the juicy and delicious food that you will prepare on it.

In the following article, we will introduce you to two Rec Tec grills that we consider the best. Both similar in features but different in grilling capacity. Let’s see what they have to offer.

REC TEC Grill Reviews

1. Best Overall

REC TEC Grills Bull

Our Rating


This big boy offers no less than what the Rec Tec customers have grown accustomed to. The Bull comes with several upgrades and innovative features that make it stand out in the pellet grill industry.

The Bull features a cooking chamber that is entirely made of stainless steel. Therefore, you will never have to worry about paint cracks again. Stainless steel also means no rust. And that is a fact that we must emphasize twice.

With the Bull, you will be able to cook, broil, roast, grill, smoke, sear, bake and even dehydrate! Owning the Bull means that you will have a personal assistant in your backyard and that you will finally feel like a true chef.

So what’s so smart about the Bull? This product includes Wi-Pellet Wifi technology. It will allow you to control the cooking process from anywhere by using a Rec Tec Grills app! And if things get too heated, you can enter the cooldown mode with a push of a button.

2. Best Value

REC TEC Grills Trailblazer

Our Rating


If you want to save some money for the meat, and the Bull is just too expensive for you, you should definitely check out the Trailblazer. First of all, we must give our kudos to Rec Tec for all the cool names that they are giving to their products. But the name isn’t the only thing that’s good about the Trailblazer. Even though it comes as second best on our list, it can surely offer a lot.

The Trailblazer is easily portable. Hence the name, you can take it away with you on holidays or why not, to a sports outing.

Preparing a meal with the Trailblazer is almost the same as with the Bull. You can do it with a push of a button. The Trailblazer also includes the Wi-Pellet Wifi technology that we saw on the Bull. Therefore, even with this product, you will be able to precisely monitor the cooking process.

The Trailblazer is also made of stainless steel, so what goes for the Bull goes for the Trailblazer.


When it comes to Rec Tec grills, it is easy to recognize their quality. They are made of the best materials, they are very durable and will give you a great performance both with cooking and maintaining the desired temperature. Now, how to choose between two products from a well-known manufacturer? Well, the only way is to actually compare the price with their features. We would also advise you to check out the reviews, but also don’t get disappointed by one or two bad remarks. There are always some individual cases that have nothing to do with the product itself. Choose a grill that suits your needs.

However, we are sure that every choice that includes a Rec Tec grill is the right choice.
