Marinade Injectors
« on: July 15, 2017, 05:53:44 AM »
Hi All,
Do any of you guys use them? I was reading a article about them.
You mix/grind your herbs or spices then add liquid of choice and heat over stove.
Let it cool and strain then draw up into needle and inject into the meat.

Is it worth getting one ?
cheers.

Sometimes. it is an ok way to add flavour, but in the main I prefer to slice and insert - to each their own :)

Cheers

I always use one when I'm doing a pulled pork. Keeps the inside nice and moist.

They are great, and sometimes necessary for large cuts.
The real trick is finding one that actually works reliably.  Round nose needles suck.  They need to be sharp.   Ive had to modify most injectors ive got but I keep going back to the basic cheap injectors that have a sharp but rather large diameter needles.
The blunt needles with multi side holes that are very narrow are prone to bending.
The fine blunt needles are also prone to particulate blockage.  Another reason I tend to stay with cousinart injectors from any kitchen shop.   I started with a horse needle and that was just about perfect  :)
