Marinade Injectors are fantastic for putting extra flavour into the foods that you grill. Here are some helpful hints for when using one.
- If pulling the marinade into the chamber through the needle, make sure that both holes are submerged in the liquid to avoid air in the chamber.
- When making your own marinade for injecting, remember that you’re using a needle, try to avoid chunks in your marinade, either by blending them into complete liquid, or straining them before filling the injector.
- To avoid cross contamination when using the injector, pour the marinade or saue directly into the chamber, or into a separate dish from the original container (like a jar of barbecue sauce) before using the needle to pull the liquid into the chamber.
- You can inject other things with marinade too. Try injecting your potatoes for baking with butter when they’re half cooked, you can do the same or similar for sweet potatoes, and squash.
- Don’t underestimate the power of simplicity. Just using melted butter can increase the flavour of the food you are injecting. But try beer, wine or apple juice.
