Cajun Injector Question

edited 1:42AM in EggHead Forum
Wanted to buy one this week but wasn't sure if there is any advantage in buying the 9" vs. the 6". Anyone have used either version?[p]Howard

  • Howard,
    I have a 6" and it is plenty long enough. One suggestion - Don't buy the cheap plastic ones. I got a stanless steel one at Lowe's for $19.99. I went through several cheap ones, the needle always broke off.

    <p />Howard,
    When you say 6" or 9" I'm not quite sure what you mean, but I can tell you this big ol' honkin 6" needle from Cabella's is over 18" when fully loaded. I found that to be unwieldy and sent it back. It was very well made, but the needle end was extremely blunt which I thought would have torn or bruised the meat in the injecting process.

    RRP,
    I'm with you on this. I bought this one as well, and have gone back to the smalller plastic model. I find it too big and unwieldy.

  • Howard,
    That injector is for hams , bacon , ect. I have one from Morton and use it all the time to spray inject briskets, fresh hams, bacon, Canaidian bacon, turkeys.
    If your a hunter you will need the longer needle to inject the curing solution down the bone and deep into the meat.
