I have reconfigured my Pro Series grill by removing my Savannah Stoker controller and adding Molex connectors to it and then I added the Molex connectors to the Rec-Tec controller so now I can switch back and forth well at least I was going to do.

The Rec-Tec controller is spot on I mean it was worth the money and the WiFi worked perfectly. For some reason this controller was hitting the temps right on. I had set it at 200 for my chicken wings and the temp stayed at 198 - 202 the entire cook and the hood temp was at 200 the entire time. Now my Inkbird was at the same temp as the Rec-Tec controller.

So after the wings were done I crank the temp to 400 and it reached 400 pretty quick and stayed at 400. Now the Savannah Stoker does the same thing, but it is not WiFi so if I had to do it again I would have went with the Rec-Tec controller.

So I decided to place my Savannah Stoker on Ebay for $190.00 and it sold 15 minutes after I posted it....Actually the guy that bought it lives in 2 hours away in Tennessee from me is on his way to meet me at a Walmart to pick it up. So now I have 2 Pellet grills that are WiFi, but if Pit Boss is smart they would invest into a better controller.

Wow that's amazing! Unfortunately I spent $600 today on a plumber. Last weekend spent $450 for a sensor on my daughter's car. That over $1000 in a week of my play money gone so no chance for me to make any grill investments any time soon.

How much smoke are you getting with the rec rec?

I just finished mine. I think my PB RTD is bad. Rec rec is reading the same but I put 5 inkbird probes and there were spots that were almost 200 degrees off

My Rec-Tec controller is doing fine great so I want a stick burner so I decided to sell my Yoder s640 which did not take long at all.
