I've seen a few threads where folks have used some teriyaki in their injections mixed with beef broth and other ingredients,but has anyone ever tried it all on it's own?
Got a nice prime brisket from costco yesterday and my thought was to inject it and then leave it in a pan in the fridge overnight before it goes on the WSM in the morning. As for rub, I'm just keeping it simple with a dalmation rub as I've feel complicated rubs distract from letting the meat 'shine' on it's own.

If you worry about complicated rubs affecting the meat flavor, I don't understand injecting teriyaki sauce. It is a very strong flavor. In fact, when I hear anyone say they want to let the meat shine on it's own, then they inject broth, Worcestershire sauce or a commercial injection, I wonder what they are talking about.

That being said, it will be fine, I don't consider it heresy to cook as you choose. The flavors of beef and teriyaki sauce go well together.

Not "heresy" at all- do your thing and let us know if it met your expectations.

Really depends on the flavor you are looking for. A little bit of teriyaki or soy may enhance the flavor of your beef broth.

yeah, it does seem like an oxymoron doesn't it?. In this case the teri is being used as more of a brine to get some salt inside the meat and for the meat to hold moisture through the cook without to many other spices that make the bark overpowering. I've never done anything other than beef broth/au jus in the past.
