I got a Cajun Injector, which on the box says was built by Masterbuilt @ Joe's sporting goods in Tacoma/Lakewood for $169.99 after $30.00 off about 2 months ago. I wish I would have bought it a LONG time ago, it is awsome. I also found a place within 10 minutes of my house that sells Vac-pack briskets for $1.56 a pound which I separate into servings & vacuum pack. I also smoke regular Costco frozen chicken breasts for taco's, salads, nacho's, sammy's, dips, etc. It is high quality food at a very reasonable price. If you are creative & watch food prices & sales, at least in my area, you can eat very well on a reasonably tight budget.
