I want a pellet grill!!!. Traeger is out. It's cheaply made, mass produced, and sold at big box stores!!! Nuff said. I really zero'd in on Rec Tec but am now having second thoughts. Their pricing is all over the place. On ebay they advertise a grill with a custom cover and 240 lbs of pellets and FREE SHIPPING for $1448...but...when you do the math it doesn't add up. The grill is $998...the Custom cover is $80, and the 240 lbs of pellets are $150. Thats $1228...$220 LESS than their ebay price. I sent them an email about this price difference and here is their answer...
FREE SHIPPING is really like the Easter Bunny, fun to believe in, but the grown ups know it can't be true.
Does this sound like someone with whom you'd like to deal? They also say the full size grill regular price is $1598 on sale for $998, but couldn't tell me when they've EVER sold one for that FULL price.
Look, this is really a good grill, even though made in China, but frankly I'm a little tired of playing pricing games and getting stupid answers to serious questions like above. By the way, the lady that wrote me that "Easter Bunny" answer says that she is a co-founder of the company! I was ready to buy that package for $1228 with FREE shipping until I received that stupid message. Now I'm gonna spend a few more bucks and look at Yoder!
