    I know Dave, but the price tag is pretty steep in comparison. But, this is why I am I am having this discussion and haven't pulled the trigger yet. The Mak 2 Star is considerably better built than the 1 star and has a lot of options like the expanded cooker/smoker box. I am still looking.

      REC TEC is excellent and the base price w/o shipping is $998. Other than the appealing cosmetics, it has no bells and whistles, just solid construction with lots of heavy stainless steel and a very dependable digital touchpad controller. That said, competition in the pellet smoker arena is heating up. Green Mountain is on the move and even Traeger announced they are introducing something new within the next few days.

Shipping isn't a major consideration for me from what I have seen. $100 flat shipping on the Mak and zero on the RecTec if you get a bundled package. I am considering this bundled package from RecTec which includes free shipping. Since the RecTec plant is in Augusta, Ga it is a good deal for them. They also have some very creative financing options. Two yeas no finance charges is hard to pass up. I talked to them about Wifi and they are considering that option in the future and they said they are looking at it. There Digital system is very proprietary and the BBQ Guru units will not work with them. Wifi would be nice but, it is not a deal maker/breaker for me. I do like the construction materials better on the RecTec especially the stainless steel components. So Mark, what don't you like about your Rectec?? http://www.rectecgrills.com/rec-tec-...ping-included/
        Haven't found anything I don't like yet.

                    I know you say that a little jokingly but Traeger makes some really great units which you also know

                  Dave your insight into people amazes me. I see why you are the Pit Boss!! Yes, you are correct, I ordered the RecTec today. For several reasons the biggest one was how much disposable income I had to throw at a unit. I should get a lot of bang for my dollar. Although the Mak 2 star was a super machione it was more than I was willing to budget for.

                  Jon, have you been sneaking around in my back yard taking my picture?

                        Yes, congrats on the new Rec tec, Barry! Good decision, and great value. That's a fine looking grill, alright.

                          Barry you just seem like the kind of guy that likes to take the bull by the horns, so it was an easy guess!

                          Did you get any accessories? Like the towel?

                            You are Bad Dave!!

                            I got the big bundle

                            Bundle includes:

                            REC TEC Grill (Model: RT-680);
                            GrillGratesâ„¢ Searing kit (3 - 19.5" panels & Grate tool);
                            Stainless Steel front shelf;
                            Premium Grill Cover;
                            Maverick ET-732;
                            The Complete Wood Pellet Grill Cookbook;
                            REC TEC Grilling Mat; and
                            80 Pounds of Wood Pellets (1 - 40# bag of Perfect Mix (Hickory, Maple, Apple, Cherry) and 1 - 40# bag of Ultimate Blend (White Oak, Red Oak, Hickory)

                            I already have one Maverick but the second will work and I didn't need the cookbook, I have the "Pit" and AR, but, it was part of the bundle.

                            I didn't get the towel. I hope you don't think less of me because I didn't get the towel.
