After careful consideration and much comparison I decided to go with the REC TEC pellet grill. Much Thanks to SeenRed for all of his help and for answering all of my questions about Rec Tec when I sent him a PM! I liked the Yoder YS640 also and it was one of my top 2 choices. I just didn't care for the front and side shelf design on the Yoder, its real roomy, just too roomy for the area I will have it when stored and dont want to have to pull shelves off each time to make enough space, not a huge issue at all, but for me just would be a pain. I will get a fold down shelf for the REC TEC. I could not find much bad to say about either grill so I am sure I will not regret my choice! This is my first pellet grill and will be getting rid of my trusty brinkmann LP grill. I ordered the Searing Grates, 240# of pellets and a cover along with the grill. Ronald said there will be a thermal blanket coming out for the REC TEC by the end of summer and I will buy one then. I was very impressed when I got a phone call from Jamie after sending an email with questions, he answered everything I could think of to ask. I came up with more questions later and emailed them again and got an email from Ronald. Real great guys to talk to and deal with! Jamie even saved me $57 more on shipping when I called to order it. It will be delivered when we get back from Florida the first week in April, will be something to look forward to coming home for! I will post pics when it arrives and I get it put together. They could have sent it out today, but I would not be here when it would be set to arrive so Jamie looked at the UPS schedule to pick a day to ship it it so I will have it will be delivered when I get home.
