Yup, very good point. These vet type injectors will not work if there is any particulate in your injection. Though I can't speak for the Spitjack on this, I will say that I always had issues with the Cajun injectors as well with particulate jamming up the needle. YMMV.

I have spit jack the clear plastic tubes have cracked so many times I'm just sick of it. They used to replace them for free but now charge. I tried this injector recently and love it. It has big holes

Heck, I've been using the cheap plastic injector that came with a jar of Cajun Injector Sauce for about two years...

I really like the green injectors sold at Cabela's. They look they regular cheap injectors(~$10) you might find at a BBQ store(not the cajun but the heavier duty one's). They seem to hold up much much better. They aren't on Cabela's website for some reason but they are in the KC store upstairs.

I do like the idea of the automatic draw one's. I might have to try one of them. Thanks!

I was likely going with the MABBA one to support a Brethern, but I stumbled upon this site - anyone have experience?

http://www.bbqinjector.com/

Not an automatic feed injector but the big ones can hold up to a gallon of liquid and it can pass particulars liked miniced garlic, ground pepper, etc....

Those auto feed ones would be great for whole hog or something, but for just a couple of butts, a gallon is more than enough capacity.

Anyone with experience?

These guys also sell individual leur lock needles with aluminum hub. Most vet places only sell needles in boxes in of 100. Here's the 18ga needles Todd mentioned earlier:

Depends on the job. I'm typically not injecting a case of pork butts at a time. I'm injecting 32 oz in a couple of butts. In contest situations, I want to control the amount of fluid in the injection site. I also want to damage the product as little as possible. This doesn't look like the right tool for the job for what I'm doing.

That's what you have to think about when making your selection. Is this a mass cook? Is it the occasional home cook? Is it a competition cook? Based on the answer, I think that is where you draw your conclusion on what to buy from the options offered.

For the occasional home cook, I'd go cheap.

I have used the no cents, and another called a cheap charlie, and just about every other injector out there, including spitjack, and the cabela's ones.

I didnt like the valve on the no cents, liked the way the cheap charlie worked, but alwqys had a hard time with the o-ring leaking pressure on the tank.

I like the cabela's ones, but after using an auto feed, im sold.

Only thing on the auto feed is the size of the needle, for a pig, id like a longer one. other than that, you can inject a little or alot, no need to refill.

Come on sled we all know the rich and famous live on Long Island!!

Seriously, though, compare the 5ml injectors, not the 20ml and the 5ml....
The one Todd listed is the 5ml prices are comparable.

There is a big difference in the 5ml and the 20ml injector. First, our auto injectors are made with all food safe materials - no fibrous washers to hold contaminates and medical grade silicone tubing for the pickups.

Something to keep in mind when you look at all of these auto fill syringes and drenchers - most of them are considered disposable and not food safe. That's why Tractor Supply sells them in 2 packs. They are intended to inoculate your herd then you toss them. (Shamless plug) I chose the manufacturer that I did because their auto syringes are designed as multiple use tools.
  • The 5mil is an all plastic unit with only two serviceable parts - the O-ring and the barrel - if you clog the check valve in the handle and you can't free it by boiling the unit (you can boil and sterilize ours) you have to toss the whole thing.
  • The 5mil units have a fixed return spring - if you use an injection with a lot of sugar in it (high specific gravity solution) the handle return can be really slow.
  • The 5 mil unit is more sensitive to solution specific gravity due to the small check valves. As an example it won't pull Myron's pork injection from his book. Too much sugar in solution.
  • The 20 mil unit is all metal with all the fluid contact parts being stainless steel.
  • The valves in the 20mil unit are serviceable and replaceable. If it clogs up, you can take it all the way apart and clean it.
  • The 20 mil unit has an adjustable return spring tension system. It will pull much higher specific gravity solutions
  • The 20 mil unit is more comparable to the F.Dick Brine pump than the smaller 5mil auto syringes.

If someone were to send me one of their injectors with a supply of 20ga 2" needles, I'd probably endorse their product online, in demos, and in classes.

Just saying. ;-)
