Working on recall

So as many of you know since I got kai as a pup I have been very open to learning anything I can about dogs, bully breeds, health, and training. He is now 3 years old and although I'm proud of the commands he knows I know he can do better. He knows the commands focus, sit, down, leave it, speak, stay, and kiss (he will jump up a plant a closed mouth kiss lol). He listens great indoors and his attention is always on me. My biggest room for improvement is his recall. He does great at home but the second we are somewhere and he wants to sniff and pee anywhere his hearing is off even ON leash. On leash he will respond but he will push his limits. Off leash is a different story and his recall is never consistent. I will admit, being my first dogand being that I trained him on my own I didn't work on this as much as I should have.
What can I do to work on his recall and his attention outdoors? I've tried treats but this never worked. Maybe I'm using the wrong kind of treats. I've done research on it and so far I've come across using a long lead and I've also read that an e collar is another method (long lead, low level ecollar. Pressing the button while calling his name and stopping the shock when he responds). I'm not sure how I feel with the ecollar but from the videos I've seen it can work well.

Anyways, any advice is appreciated on how I can work with his recall and focus outdoors.

Working on recall

My dog Squirt was the same. He didn't get much off leash time because of his DA popping up at such a young age, so we didn't get to practice much other than in the house and yard.

Even still, he's only off-leash in remote areas every once in a while, but what works best is really high value treats. If I don't have a treat he takes his sweet time coming back. I use hot dogs and he comes flying back before I can even get the whole word out, lol. I would try some super special treats that are reserved only for recall training, that way he knows he gets something extra delicious. Practicing on a long line would be a good way to build up the training. That way he has some freedom but you can still contain him if necessary.

I have heard good and bad things about e-collars, some say they're awesome for recall work. Haven't used one so I can't comment on that.

My Maggie is solidly in the 18 month old airheaded phase and will not Come for normal stuff.
McDonald's chicken nuggets, however, she will do absolutely anything for. Because Come is a safety command, I'm ok with giving her complete junk food to reinforce it.

So, maybe try different treats. Something he's never gotten but you know he'll love. Chicken nuggets, bits of cheese burger (made without the onions), smoked turkey breast...
