Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Injection Marinade

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I have seen many cooking teams inject their shoulders and chicken with marinade. The archives do not have any suggestions for this technique with either type of meat. Is there anyone on this forum that could provide me with an injection recipe(s) so that I could experiment on my EGG? I can find most every useful thing on the forum with this exception.

    TimStarr,[p] Tim, you are not the first to try the injector method. It
    has been posted from time to time, however, i can not recall the outcome. I picked up a chicken injector while
    in the US, we have used it to inject butter & spices
    into crabs legs. If you attemp to go that route, please
    post with results.[p] Earl

    TimStarr,[p]I've tried it on chicken and turkey. I didn't think it was worth the effort and haven't used it much since. Never tried it on a butt or sholder. If you have good results, post the good news![p]Smokey

    I bought an injector, and still have not opened the pack! Just too many things to try, and I have been real happy with marinades and rubs. I really WANT to try it though, cuz it really gets the flavor deep inside. I can really imagine injecting a shoulder would be a huge benefit for flavor.[p]As far as I know, any marinade can be injected, as long as there are no big chunks. Something with a good balance of salt, sugar and spices. If it tastes good, shoot it up.[p]Butter is great as a base for injecting leaner meats that could use some fat and moisture.[p]You are right about it not being mentioned often...I wonder why?[p]Cheers
