I'll second the RT 700...per Ron's recommendation, I took the plunge this last year. Love it. Don't have a smoker box though.I love my RT 700. I've had it for a little over 18 months. I use the smokebox for cheese and longer colder fish smokes like kings for dip. The smokebox is not as heavily built as the rest of it it but it works great for my purposes. My BIL has the 590. It's OK, bot no smokebox, less pellet storage, and the odd exhaust vents don't work for me.In the market for a new pellet smoker. The ole woodwind is on its last legs but held up through 100s of cooks, being knocked over by the wife, a few raging fires (one where I thought the propane tank connected to the sear station was gonna explode) and 5 brutal Minny winters and 1 wet hot Florida summer.
Had my sights set on a Masterbuilt Gravity but the wife nixed that as she doesn’t like charcoal and wants to stay with pellets which is perplexing but whatever. So I said fine but that they other option was more expensive.
So thinking rec teq 700 cause the smokebox is extremely alluring. Anyone have one? Honestly the 590 makes more sense as it’s typically just my wife and I but this is America so gotta go big here right?
