Default Need help choosing a good meat injector!

I have tried a couple different injectors. I had a plastic Bayou Classic injector and I ruined it when I was screwing the metal needle into the plastic housing. I also have a Charcoal Companion, but I have difficulty drawing the liquid into the chamber.

Any reccommendations on a decent meat injector?

I looked at that one but I am a little hesitant. The point of the needle does nto look sharp, in fact, it looks to be rounded. Not sure if that makes a difference when trying to pierce a brisket or turkey?

It is plenty sharp to pierce raw meat, and it has many good reviews.

They usually come with 2 needles. A traditionally shaped "sharp" needle with an open tip and a rounded tip with smaller holes along the barrel to disperse finer liquids. You use the rounded needle if your injection is pure liquid and the open tip if you have any particulate (spices and such) in your injection.

BTW I have and recommend this one

Try this one:

I use the one that has a squeeze trigger and you can adjust the amounts. Had it about 9 years now. All the others have come and gone, but I like this one a lot. When it comes back up (or if someone has another link) I'll post it

It all comes apart and washes away. I've used it for 9 years.

The Spitjack works great and is fairly easy to clean. A bottle brush does a good job of washing the cylinder and don't lose the rubber gasket at the bottom of it. Here's a plastic injector with a screw-in needle:

Butcher BBQ has some decent injectors that come in a nice plastic case for the needle and the injector. Cheap pricing too. I like them because they have a real tight seal.
