Which injector to buy

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I have a bunch of the Cajun Injectors tha came with their marinades. But here is the problem they don't want to suck up much liquid. When you inject the liquid passes threw the seel and sets on top so after a few injections the liquid is running out the top of the injector instead of the needle. Can this be fixed or should I just buy a differant injector. What do you guys use?

 I use those freebies once or twice then trash em.

 go to a vet. supply and buy a stainless steel injector that they use to inject horses and cattle. get the largest guage needle they have.

I think a good injector needs the following:

1.) It needs to be stainless....all over (except of course for the o-ring)

2.) The o-ring needs to be replaceable

3.) The needle needs to be removable (for cleaning....and to allow additional needles for other purposes)

4.) The needle needs to be large enough to allow for injections with "bits" in the solution.  ie: Thousand Island salad dressing.

 

If you a Lowe's near you, they should have one that meets that list.

I just went to one of those bed bath and take your money and bought a good heavy duty injector. Now I do have a handful of the freebies to.

I think I will check one of these out at the farm store. Not anywhere I know of around here that has good BBQ or smoking supplies. If I cant find that I will order one.

I also purchased a heavy duty injector with two needles. The large bore can really get the job done. I like to stick it in deep, and slowly with draw the needle inject all the time. This way you get the flavor spread out threw the meat. The first time I did injecting, some parts were stronger than others in the meat.

The heavy duty ones can be found at Gander Mountain, Bass Pro, etc....

I just bought this one from Mortons Salt. Original price was $43, now half price. Meets all the criteria set forth above. The needle has multiple holes so that the substance being injected flows out pretty well.

I use the cheapies and chunk em afterward.  I'm alway scared about meat scraps stuck in the end of that needle.  I haven't found  a good way to get in there and clean that thing, so I start fresh every time.

Lube the O-ring with some olive oil before using it. That should help with the leakage issue.
