The SpitJack Magnum Meat Injector Gun

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #3 in Injectors


Pros: big, large needle available

Cons: needle not large enough for minced onions and garlic

I love this injector.  I got it as a gift.  I ended up buying it as a gift for my groomsmen.  I bought several injectors.  Some broke, some stunk.  I was looking for a large needle to inject more than just a liquid.  I get my spices through, but minced onions and garlic don't make it through.  I tried mincing it to death, but it won't pass.

I stopped looking at injectors since I got this one.


Pros: FDA parts-Metered Injection-Easy Cleanup

Cons: Expensive

They are not cheap!  I gave 47 bucks for mine and it comes with 2 needles.  A third even larger diameter needle can be added as an option for pushing larger bits of spice and herb into the meat for about 12 bucks bringing the total to 59 bucks. I did not purchase the larger needle as the slant end needle seems adequate for my use.  It brandishes a pistol grip action that can be metered to deliver 1-5 ml of injection at each trigger pull.  It will hold about 2 ounces of liquid.  I find this adequate but wish it held 4 ounces.  The construction seems quality with outer die cast zinc frame, polycarbonate barrel and nickel plated brass push rod and needles.  The threaded fittings holding it all together are nickel also.  The O rungs and plunger are FDA food contact certified.  The opening from the barrel to the needle and the needle opening itself is huge in comparison to the other injectors.  Surprisingly, the take down of the SpitJack is as simple as the other injectors above as you only need clean the business sections and the action itself can be wiped down and dried with ease.  It handles all the injections I use with ease including my rubs mixed with apple juice or whatever I want to put them in as a carrier.  To meter the injection quantity you simply rotate a graduated ring at the back of the barrel.  There is a threaded Allen screw that should be set to prevent over travel of the trigger which could damage the polycarbonate barrel as the torque generated seems substantial.  This injector is available at Kenco and SpitJacks   web sites.  A cheaper version manufactured for animal husbandry can be found at farm and home supply stores but I was unable to locate one that said on the package FDA food certified.  This may not be a problem for you and you must decide if this is important. I have used the SpitJack for more than a year and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to spend the money.

The SpitJack Magnum Meat Injector Gun

If you need to get some extra flavor (or a special kind of flavor) deep into your meat, you will have to go beyond rubs and marinating. The SpitJack Magnum Meat Injector Gun™ is the ultimate injector that will penetrate up to 5.5 inches. A patented dial lets you adjust the flow of the marinade or seasoning mix you are injecting from 1-5 ml. per shot. 50ml (2 oz.) capacity. The Magnum comes with 2 needles, 1 with a slanted open tip (for injecting a marinade that might have small spice or herb particles) and the other with a closed end and side perforations (for liquid only flavoring solutions). An optional 3/8" slanted open tip needle that can be used for injecting larger particles or solid pieces and a smaller, thinner gauge needle are also available at additional cost. The Magnum Injector is manufactured in the USA from quality nickel plated brass and die cast zinc, with FDA food borne approved O-rings.

Customer Service:

I felt a need to brings some impressive info to all of you about this company.  I screwed up and cross threaded the keeper ring that holds the barrel to the gun assembly.  The result was that if significant pressure was used to push a heavy injection into meat the barrel would come disingaged from the rest of the unit.  I sent it in and explained the problem asking SpitJack to repair it and call me for payment.  8 days later a new unit was setting on my front porch with no charges incurred.  That is great customer care in my opinion.  Thanks SpitJack!
