I just booked a cook for ~200 people. So I have 25 briskets & 20 pork butts coming. Is this too much? Figured 1#/head for brisket and a bit less for the pork. They like large portions here.

The injector we use at a competition is fine for a couple of briskets and butts just fine. This is seriously not going to work for injecting this many chunks of meat. Is there an injector that is more automated? Something that I could hookup to a gallon (or bucket) of injection and just start injecting?

Seems like more than needed to me. The butts should yield almost 90 pounds cooked (8lb butts raw), which is almost 1/2 pound per person of just butts. Not sure how brisket cooks down, but if they cook to half their weight and they start out at 15 pounds each, that's 187 pounds cooked - or nearly a pound of brisket per-person. That's my take, anyway. You're good if they can eat almost 1.5 pounds each, though! I've seen days I thought I could! :shock:

Briskets cook down about to about 60% of the raw weight. Briskets up here have been running a bit small at 10-12 pounds raw.

Anyway ran across an old thread in the Brethern on this injector http://www.bbqinjector.com/cart.html. Looks nearly perfect.

This is the one I've used for several years. I got mine from butcher-packer.com.

http://www.butcher-packer.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_45_231&products_id=28

They still have the best price on this particular brine pump. It's also available from Allied-Kenco and Jack's Old South for about $180.

It's not cheap but is very high quality, food grade, parts are available like "O" rings, hoses, canulas, etc. I've used it for competition and many cooks for 200-400 people.

+1 on that one.

I just used it last weekend and had 16 butts injected in MAYBE 10 minutes. Works awesome.

Here's another site that sells em.....

+1 from me on this one made by F. Dick (no, really). I used it to inject 300+ ham hocks a month ago and I would still be crippled up if I'd had to use a syringe! Great quality and super easy to use and clean.

What is the total weight of brisket and then pork you plan to cook? I think you are getting ready to cook way too much meat.

Ordered 410# total raw. Figured that would come down to about 246# cooked (raw * .60). Enough for about 1# per person total with enough extra for unaccounted guests, to feed workers + extra big eaters.

Briskets up here have been coming out small. Only 10-11 pounds each. Pork butts have been running 7-9 pounds each.

Client said 200 people....

+1 on this injector - been using it for the last couple of years - it has held up well overall. The only real issue is the clean up - it's a little bit of a nuisance, but overall - works VERY well for mass injecting.

I saw one Myron Mixon assuring via his twitter page. Had three prong injector! He said he's offering one on his site soon for half what he paid for his.

Bryan,
I have a one gallon injector. Look up "No Cents Injector". I works pretty well.

With that many pork butts you may want to get a "Roman Pork Puller " I did a wedding a month ago and pulled 6 butts in less than a minute.

I use the No Cents Injector also and it works great at a super price compared to the others.
