Injector Needle Size?
I have one of the Proshot injectors I got at Rural King. The only problem I have is that when I try to inject anything except for straight apple juice or broth it clogs up. What size needle do I need and best place to get them? It uses a Luer Lock tip. Thanks!

to prevent clogs strain the liquid with a coffee filter before filling the injector.

A thin piece if wire pushed through the tip will unclog it.

Try a farm supply store

or try here

Using a coffee or similar type will lose too much good stuff. We always grind the rubs and spices we use to inject and use a couple different size strainers to catch clogging sized pieces. The cheap sink strainers work wonders. I use very small (1/8" or smaller ) needles, so it's something we deal with every cook. Steve.

Thank you both. SSBBBQGUY, do you use a coffee grinder or?
