    So, I decided to do a beef rump roast, following the process folks have described here for chuckies and figured I'd try the new injector. I mixed up some spices - garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and ginger into some red wine and poured it into the injector:

    Sounds like the experience I had dumping my brine bucket off the deck. I accidentally let go of the bottom too soon, and the bottom of the bucket fell and hit the railing. I got a brine shower, right in the eyes, all in my hair, all over my clothes etc. One of these days I will tell you the story about when I slipped on the ice on my deck dumping out some flour in my drawers on Christmas day.
