What to expect from REC TEC Wood Pellet Grill (tips and tricks for a better experience)
Before you start using the grill, ensure it is well seasoned. In order to season a grill, you must wash its part with detergent and sponge.
The grill may contain chemicals contained from the manufacturing process. These chemicals can be unhealthy. So it is recommended that you season the grill before you cook anything in it.
You can also place a large water pan inside the grill when cooking the food. The grill doesn’t come with a pan of its own but you can use any pan that is oven proof to get an even better taste.
When cooking, take things slow and patiently with the REC TEC Wood Pellet Grill. The grill has an amazing temperature control to help maintain temperatures own its own. You will still have to use the digital thermometer to check internal temperatures of the meat.
Remember not to add any sauces while cooking anything on the grill at least until the smoking is properly done. When you feel the food is well prepared, then add your favorite BBQ sauce.
