Needing advice on affordable injectors
Hello all. Looking for advice on affordable injectors. I'm on a tight budget and a total newbie at injecting. Thanks guys! :)

I purchased one from Bed, Bath and Beyond based on the recommendation of a food mag. It was $14.99(?) and has worked well for me.

I broke 3 or the $4 wal mart ones in about 2 months before I broke down and bought the $20 stainless one from bass pro. It has been going strong for 2 years now

From an affordability for the quality perspective, a cajun injector is a great, low cost option.

There are other similar ones, under different brand names for around the same price or a few $ more too.

Or you can get them at a farm store like TSC. They carry lots of different sizes.

IMO, until you are ready to shell out some $ for a really nice one, stick to the cheapie $4 and under ones.

Heck I just buy four or five of the Cajun Injector ones and put them throughout my comp gear and kitchen. They do a fine job and I can always find em.

After christmas you will find the butterball stainless one discontinued at lowes and Home Depot in the $5 range.

You can go to Walmart and buy a jar of Cajun Injector Brand Butter Creole and get a free basic injector attached to the jar. I have bought about 5 jars over the past few months, as I normally would. Great on pork butts and I now have a supply of spare injectors. I think it's under $4.

What's your price range?

I have the Cajun Injector (green) one and it has held up well through about a dozen uses so far. Got it on sale at Gander Mountain for about $10. I bought a jar of CI creole butter for the Thanksgiving turkey and it came with their basic model so just for the heck of it, I used it on two turkeys and it worked okay as well. Funny thing is, my CI "deluxe" model came with an extra needle that fits the basic but not the deluxe.

Probably $20-30 at the most. Hoping to find that unusual combination of cheap and dependable. :)

The aboslute best value for the money imo, have been using this one for almost two years and have a back up one that has never been used.

+1 on the green cajun injector.

I've got a couple nice stainless injectors-one from Cabela's, not sure of the other, but I find the cheap syringe type Cajun Injector that comes with the Cajun marinade to work just as well. Plus it's not a travesty if you misplace or break one. My 2c.
