Need Brisket injection
anybody know any good recipes for an injection for brisket? I used beef broth last time,,,and while it was good...i would like something with a little more complex flavor if that makes sense. Not looking for storebought stuff,,,something i can make. Thanks

Beef stock
some of the rub that you will use

Simmer until the onions and garlic are tender and then strain and cool.

re: injection
What Ron L. said, and also run your rub through
a coffee grinder and mix it with your liquids in a
blender. Then happy injecting brother. :-D

How to take something simple and make it overly complex :crazy:

Bob's Test Injection
1 small onion
4 small carrots
2 cloves garlic
3 shiitake mushrooms, dried
1/4 cup Bragg's Aminos
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Red Boat Fish Sauce
6 cups water

I brought the water to a boil, reduced to a simmer and added everything but 2 tablespoons of fish sauce. After 10 minutes and back to a simmer, I cut the heat and let it steep until cool. This was bottled and allowed to sit for 2 days. Upon opening, gave it the sniff and taste test. It smelled great, no fish smell, no funkiness, just a nice aromatic blend, I would liken to a vegetable version of demi-glace. It was a little intense and salty in terms of taste. But, no matter, I used two cups to inject the brisket until it started rejecting the liquid. Into the fridge for now. Upon removal from the fridge, there was a notable fish sauce aroma, that got stronger as the meat came to room temperature, not to worry, this always goes away over time.

I use Dr BBQ's injection. Can't find the ingredient list at the moment but it works for me.

If you're looking for complex...Here's another rather different one that my wife (Redhot) made. It's a bourbon/coffee marinade/injection she modified from a recipe several years ago.

3/4 cup strong brewed coffee (Roastin' Ronnie's Twised Mokka Java)
1/2 cup bourbon (I used George Dickel)
1/2 cup Bigbutz Xtra Hot BBQ sauce
1/2 cup turbinado or packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Soy Vay Island Teriyaki (way better/thicker that Kikkomon's)
2 T vinegar (I used some vinegar I pickled red jalapenos in)
1 T oil (used EVOO)

Substitute coffee/bbq sauce/teriyaki to what's available.

We've done this one several times and loved it.

Marinated overnight, injected, rubbed (We used Texas Wild) and smoke.
