View Full Version : Spit jack help?

08-26-2011, 09:32 PM
Good evening guys and gals,
I got a new spit jack injector, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get it apart. Nothing like my first post after my introduction being a stupid question like this, but I found myself really cussing the directions. Can anyone help me with a good explanation! I had to put my two butts on the smoker with just some rub. If I don't get any help from you good folks, I will just have to call the company Monday, if Irene doesn't get them first.

Which one you got? The ones I have seen have a screw on the handle end that you have to loosen and then you can remove the "barrel."

No model number on the instructions or the case. It has 2 rings at the base of the tube. The directions say to loosen the back ring. Can get it loose, but can not figure out how to get it off. No screw at all on the whole unit! I do appreciate your response however, thanks!

Does the one you have resemble a caulking gun? If so, there are two knurled rings at the end of the barrel at the handle end. Loosen them. They are standard threads so twisting the one on the barrel counter clockwise will loosen them. When that is loose, the barrel should just come right off. Some times the O ring on the plunger will stick to the inside of the barrel preventing removal, just squeeze the handle and that will get things moving. If it is difficult to remove , just pull a little harder. You won't hurt anything. Once you have it apart, applying some vegetable oil on the O ring will make life easier for you.

Smoking D, thanks! That worked! Can't believe it was that tight. My butts are now 10 hours in, and it is too late to inject now! I keep spritzing with apple juice and hope they come out well, they sure smell good. Thank you for your response!

I got one and they are a GREAT!!! injector.

When you do get it apart put a little oil around the O ring on the plunger. This will help it from sticking and also dry rotting and cracking over time.
