Interior grill light

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have been wanting to add a light on a toggle to the inside of my smoker and finally spotted something I could use off of the RecTec pellet smoker. I emailed support, but just interested if anyone else has suggestions on where to get one?

Do you think it will get all smoked up 

so you can't see with it anyway.

Maybe you want to consider mounting it outside.

You could build one yourself, wouldn't be hard to do.

Well I have to wipe the Tappecue probes and other items after each smoke so just part of clean up. The RecTec comes with removable glass shield for this purpose. Seems like it's manageable to me.

Got a message to call the GM at RecTec direct. Fingers crossed, keep you posted. Below is the light their units come with btw.

I have a Rec Tec and I can honestly say that the light is the most useless piece of equipment on the grill.  If you are anal about cleaning it, it will be ok but I definitely have issues keeping it clean.  I think a light mounted outside would work much better.

Its glass so I would wipe after every smoke, and remove and scrape every few months? Is it that much of a pain? Looks like one screw and the glass is off.

I'm just sayin. . . . . . . Your mileage may vary.

I asked the same question about two years ago when I got my GMG, and got pretty much the same response. Fitted a light above smoker. This also gave me light around the smoker and light in the smoker when lid was opened.

You could get one of those "cute" forehead mounted led's and wear it when needed... :rolleyes:

ahahahah nice thanks.


Just got it ordered direct from RecTec with the 10 ft lead, housing, glass, bulb, and toggle. Also picked up the transformer and will wire in along with my custom Tappecue job in through the back and into the controls area. Ill keep you posted.

Choosing the right interior light can enhance not just your mood but the lift color of the wall too. Spotlights close to grill would be helpful to determine if it is cooked to perfection especially when it is dark. Pendant lighting are available in different shades,sizes and colors. They are perfect for the bar and serving areas. Light bulbs emit different shades of color  which vary from 2700K to 6500K for indoor use. I read an article which says that not all bulbs are created equal , depending on our requirement one can choose the form of lighting . Halogen ones are energy efficient.
