Now I'm shooting up

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Fun to play with the words and terms here for at least some of us new folks , so after my Baby Chuck Turd thread icon_rolleyes.gif

Now I've ventured into shooting up cool.gif
Got one of those pre-soaked ButterBall bonless breasts and mixed the juices from the bag with a sweet rub I ran across and some Italian salad dressing and decided that since I had the needle ( saw it last week and grabbed one ) but no "Spoon" and never tried the direct induction method , I'd give myself a shot.

Figgered I'm getting addicted pretty quick to this smokin' stuff I may as well try to speed up the process icon_smile.gif
Try to get some q-view along my "little trip , to the moon , Lord take me away " RIP mr VanZant

I always purchase my meat injectors from the local feed store. That way I can determine the style and size of the needle I use as well as the maximum volume of the injector. Since I usually create my own injection sauce from grounded up seasonings and melted butter, I tend to use a larger diameter needle with the end cut off at a slant to reduce clogging. A coffee bean grinder works well to grind up seasonings.

Thanks for the tip oillogger , I'd read a few posts here that mentioned injecting , so I got one to give it a try. Did notice that either some of the spices from the Italian dressing , or small chunks of meat that were in with the juices would get stuck now and again.

So , on with the pics.

After a dozen injections or so , I just poured whatever liquid that was left on the top and into the smoke it went.
