    I really like this injection and it doesn't leave streaks in the meat.

    2 Cups beef broth
    1/4 cup worcestershire
    1tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne

    Beef broth for sure as a base, then add whatever you want. Keep it simple so you are only enhancing the meat and not overpowering it.

    Yea. Like Ronp said. I use the broth for the base. If I feel adventurous, I add garlic powder & maybe l some Worcestershire but just enough for flavor; not to overpower. Great luck in the comp.

    I really like using the following.
    Beef Broth
    V8
    Worcestershire
    Some of your rub.

    I can't remember the amounts off the top of my head. I use this on my brisket and chuckies.

    Beef broth is a good base for any combination you can think of. Now just let your imagination run wild and go for it but a word to the wise (an I'm not) write down so you will remember it if it turns out really good. Need I say more.....

    also butcherbbq.com has a new brisket product called PRIME DUST, he brought me some last weekend and just tasting it, I can tell its going to be very good combined with his injection.[​IMG]
     
  10. I will be doing my second brisket this weekend and was thinking about injecting it with Reichl's recipe above.  But I am unsure if I should inject it the night before and let it sit over night in the fridge with the rub on it, or put on my rub and let it sit over night then inject it before it goes in the smoker.

    I would inject first. I'm not sure about anyone else but I find brisket injections to be a bit messy, and require a lot of handling.
     
  12. Messy to the point of not worth the effort for the outcome?

    Beef broth, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper. It is worth the effort!

    Probably a silly question....but with the beef broth based injections, do you heat it all up as you're mixing it before injection or just mix it up as is and then inject? Thanks much.

    I've been using beef broth and worcestershire powder with fantastic results. The sauce works if you don't have the powder. This is the perfect mix of flavor and you don't need to add any salt.

    mix up some beef broth and the dry rub that you use on the brisket....helps keep a uniform flavor inside and outside the meat
     
  17. Hello.  I see no reason to inject a good brisket but just remember that if you inject that brisket the 40-140-4 rule comes into effect.  The brisket must go from 40 degrees to an IT of 140 within 4 hours for food safety.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

    :yeahthat:
    And anytime I have used an injection I made sure it was at the same temp or lower of the meat I was injecting, I wouldn't like the thought of an injection to start warming the meat up from the inside after I just stuck a needle deep inside of it, That sounds like serious trouble to me!
     
  19. Thanks for helping out Dave.  I sometimes forget ALL ins and outs of food safety so I call on the moderators when I am not quite certain.  The last thing we want is for our members or friends and family to have a bad smoking experience.  We REALLY appreciate what you unsung folks do for us.  Many thanks.  Keep Smokin!

  20. Any one ever try kitchen bouquet in their broth or gravy master? And are you all partial to mesquite wood or what for smoking brisket?
