    Do different pellets make a big difference?

    i have very minimal experience with pellet grill cooking. the rec tec is actually my first foray into wood cooking. i ordered my rec tec with the ultimate blend and the perfect mix. we have found that the rec tec ultimate blend gives a much stronger smoked flavor to the food, while the perfect...

    here is the difficulty with trying the wheel mod on the new legs. https://www.rectecforum.com/threads/how-to-do-the-rec-tec-wheel-mod.17/page-4 looks like you need some heavy duty drill presses to cut through the new design
