Oh, a proper injector!

    So I stopped by Lowe's on my way in from my morning job intending to get a longer hose for my new cooker/boiler/steamer/fryer. I'm converting it to natural gas from Propane.

    Naturally, an injector caught my eye, so I decided to get it. Mainly because it has a spreader like most do, but it has a huge needle, too.
    My thinking is chunky stuff I like to make, injected into my culinary experiments. Blue cheese dressing. Garlic infusions with minced garlic.
    My initial experiment today was Blue Cheese Dressing injected into a hot dog at lunch time.
    Kind of like a meat twinky. :rolleyes:
    The spreader needle made the hot dog distort like something in a horror movie. Made me laugh!
    Can't wait to try some minced garlic in some pork.
    New tools are fun!

    Yep, I am easily amused.... :rolleyes:

    I dropped about that on an injector, but it only has one needle with side openings. I think you got the better deal!
     
  7. I bought the OKJ branded injector at Walmart. It has two needles and is some pretty solid metal construction. I guess I need to be more adventurous with my injector as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I have already forgotten what Brand I got. It was either a Norpro or the high end Chaard. I'm actually wondering about 'Hey, can I inject stadium style nacho cheese into a hot dog and..' ... it's a slippery slope.... and SonnyE contributed to it by mentioning bleu cheese dressing before!

    About any tasty sauce you can dream up can be injected.

    I'm more afraid of SonnyE injecting foreign liquids into his wiener. :)
