The Pork Injector is a state of the art “Auto Pump Injector System.” If you have a lot of meat to inject, it can really save you time and hand cramps. You make up your injection, pit it in a bucket or bottle, and lower the intake tube into the liquid. Then just insert the needle, squeeze the trigger gently, and slowly withdraw the needle to disperse the fluid. In minutes, the whole job is done.
The manufacturer sent me one to test, and it worked great in every meat I used it one. But I don’t cook as many pork butts and briskets as competition cooks do, so I passed it along to Scottie Johnson of CancerSucksChicago.com, a team AmazingRibs.com co-sponsors. Scottie has won the Jack Daniels World Championship Barbecue, no small accomplishment, and here’s what he had to say after using the Pork Injector. “It’s awesome. I fumbled around a bit at first, just because it was such a new procedure for me. Once I had it going, the ease of the flow and not having to refill was a major plus. Normally your hands get wet and slippery during the process, but this device eliminated all of that. No grabbing paper towels to dry my hands during the injection process. I can see where it would be really super for doing a whole hog or in a restaurant or catering situation.”
