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 disappointment

I have done quite a few briskets with varying degrees of success. I thought I finally had things figured out to a point where I was pleased, so I naturally tried to get to that next level. I've read a lot about people injecting their briskets and decided to give it a go. I made my injection with the following...brown sugar, salt, apple cider, apple cider vinegar and worcestershire sauce. I injected about 3 cups into the meat. I didn't notice much (if any) change in flavor and found that there was a lot of discoloration around my injection points. I don't think it added any moisture either? Barring some advice as to where I went wrong I think I'll be foregoing this messy and burdensome step in the future. I hate to give up since there must be something to it with all these professional BBQ teams swearing by injections...right now I'm just swearing at injections! Thoughts?
