Default What kind of injector do you use?

My injector just bit the dust. It was a cheap super market one so it's time for me to upgrade.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Dave

It depends. Does your injection contain particulate or is it clear? How much do you put in? just a few cc's or quarts?

If it's clear you can use an auto injector, if you have particulate in it you're better off with a manual fill type.

You can go to our Brethren ventures page to see a couple of auto fill injectors.

My wife recently bought me a SpitJack Magnum as an anniversary gift. I have only used it a few times but I like it so far.

For the record, I don't like the regular syringe type..even the stainless ones. Can't get enough force behind them when injecting briskets.

I really like it and is so much easier and quicker to use than a reguler syringe type.

That is odd maybe you got a bad one. I use it on 5 and have had it for over a year. injecting a total of about 100 butts and 30 briskets.

We used to replace our injector every 2 or 3 comps. The Spitjack has been to about 40 so far and still going strong.

I love the spitjack as it is easy on the hands and will allow you to dial in precise doses. it makes easy work of injecting and was well worth the price.

I just use the old handheld cheapies. I'm typically not in a hurry to inject my one or two briskets. Our pork butt cook also uses the cheapies...although his is a little better!
