Before I give you my thoughts, What is your budget and what are you going to use it for? Backyard, comps? How do you want to cook with it? Grilling, Smoking? Both?

Yoder cause they are downright sexy. You would never regret buying a YS-640. Esp sitting on a comp cart.

I'm happy with my Memphis Pro for both smoking and grilling.

Thanks... It makes a difference.

My preference is for Yoder as well. They are built like tanks and put out excellent food. There is nothing wrong with the RecTec, but head to head I would buy a Yoder.

Just get ready to buy a Yoder stick burner. Because of the quality Yoder puts out. I see that a stick burner is missing from your lineup. Esp since budget isn't an issue. LOL.

Yeah, I had a Bandara for years and recently passed it on to a friend. Was looking at the yoder Stockton, but couldn't figure out a way to get a 1100# smoker into the backyard. Never owned a water smoker, so I decided to start with the bws party g2. Love bws by the way. Maybe a new stick burner is in the near future as well.....?

I don't know if he is a member here or not. Here is a picture.



He says it is 10 months old and he is asking $4100.

If you think you want more info send me a PM with your contact info and I can get it to him.

LOL Bandera's are what started this site. But Bandera VS a Yoder stick burner is like comparing a Geo to a BMW. just my opinion.
Rec Tec or Yoder, Your picking from the best !! And yes, Backwoods Rock ! You gots good taste!

I agree 100% with this. A Yoder stickburner is in my future, just not as soon as I would like it to be.

Wife and I have had a Yoder YS640 for a little over 2 years and have been very happy with it. GrillGrates over the burn pot and it is a steak searing machine!
Comparing price, warranty, cooking area size, gauge of materials used in the construction and high/low temp ranges to other brands the YS640 is a great choice.
