    PRIME Tri tip, reverse sear

    Here is what I started with. We liked the marinade we put on the skirt steak we had last week, so I just made the same for the TT. I just eyeballed the ingredients, no measuring. Into the vacuum canister for an overnight nap in the fridge. Into the Rec Tec set at 215 I also put a little...

    After weeks of using a smoke box on my Weber, I finally got a smoker. I went with the Rec Tec 340. Breaking her in today with a pork butt!

    Help Me Decide Between PID Controllers

    Hi All, I have a Traeger Pro 34 and have way too many temp fluctuations and occasional flame outs when cooking at 180F. I am strongly considering getting a new PID controller to avoid the temp fluctuations and allow for auto relight if necessary, but can't decide which would be best. Hoping...

    Rec Tec Camp Chef Sear Box add-on

    TL;DR - it's an easy mod, fits and looks good. I bought a Rec Tec RT340 to replace an aging Weber Genesis and Masterbuilt bullet smoker. The RT340 is great, but sometimes I just want to sear something or quick grill a salmon burger. I've solved this by adding a Camp Chef sear box to the RT340...

    New Rec Tec Stampede

    I broke down and bought a pellet grill and couldn’t be happier. WiFi controller with two meat probes. I’ve done a couple overnight cooks and the graph on the phone shows it didn’t vary 2 degrees! Made pizzas on it at 540 degrees in 15 degree weather. I highly recommend Rec Tec if you’re...

    RecTec RT-340

    Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with the RecTec Trailblazer RT-340? I'm looking to get my first pellet grill. I had been looking at a $299 Member's Mark Pellet Grill from Sam's Club but the reviews make it seem like it breaks very often. $600 is really my limit. Is the RecTec...

    I'm an idiot. Disregard lol

    *Problem solved* Nothing to see here. I was reading threads from you guys over the past week and made up my mind late last night to purchase a Rec Tec 700 "Bull" today. Well, I'm an idiot and should have hit the order button last night. Yesterday the price was $1158. Today the price is $1498...

    REC TEC Bull

    Hey guys. Pretty sure I am buying an RT-700 today. I know they have great reviews. Few questions for you guys who own one. 1. How is the smoke profile? I like to cook around 225 - no higher than 250 unless doing poultry 2. Second shelf large or small or both? Thinking (in some...

    Worth buying gasket for Rec Tec?

    I'm curious how well does the lid seal on the Rec Tec RT-700 grill? I've seen a few people on other grills using a gasket on their pellet grills and was wondering, would it be worth it to buy a roll of the Fireblack smoker gasket for the RT 700?

    3-2.3-1 Ribs

    In my day, I have done many a butt, countless wings, logs of bologna, and a couple turkeys, but I had never conquered the almighty RIB! So with a meat sale going on in my local area, I picked up a pack of what I thought was two racks of spares, but it turned out to be 3! So back and forth I went...

    What are your Thoughts?? - Injecting a Brisket with It's Own Liquid Fat

    Hey Ya'll... Just looking for your thoughts on my last brisket cook. I trimmed the fat off, cooked it down, then injected the flat with that fat. The full video of the whole cook is listed below: Let me know your thoughts on this technique, please. It really was a fun cook!
