    Help! Should I get the Rec Tec with a cover, 240 pounds of pellets, grilling mats, maverick 732, and a smoke tube for $1550?Or a Yoder YS640 with a cover? I'm torn.

    They are both great pit's!! I have had my YS640 for about a month now and just love it!! If you decide to go with the 640 I would highly recomend getting the extra shelf, gives you allot more room and also allows you to place foil pans under your meat for realy easy clean up. As I am sure you have read the Yoder is one heavy duty pit they aren't BSing when they say it is built like a tank!! What ever you decide as with any smoker or grill there is a learning process, but I will say that my Maverik 732 temp.probes and the Yoder are the best investments I have made into this wounderful lifestyle that is SMOKING!

    As Wolf says, they're both great can't go wrong here with either choice.  I own a Rec Tec, and I'm very satisfied with it.  

    Be sure to let us know what you decide...Good luck!

  4. As Red and Wolf said, you can't go wrong with either one. I have had my YS640 since March and love it. I ordered my YS640 with the second shelf,probe port, Grill Grates and a half palette of pellets. With shipping to PA it was just under 2K. If you are on Facebook there is a Yoder YS Pellet Grill group with quite a few members. Good luck whatever you decide.

    Very tough choice.....very tough. Yoder, of course made in the US but Rec Tec has a great rep and a good warranty and that's a lot of goodies offered with it......Willie
