    I always use a dry rub ,or a wet marinade on all my meats

    but now I bought a marinade Injecter

    but unfortunately there were no basic recipes in the box

    what is a good basic recipe for pork and chicken / turkey?

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I always just buy the store bought injector maranade, lots of flavors to choose from and they dont get hung up in the injector.

    This is the key to making homemade injector marinades.
    Make sure when you choose spices, choose ones that are finely ground as any thing that is "large" will get stuck in the needle and will inevitably blow out all over your counters or your face ( trust me dont look at it while doing this [​IMG] ) when you try to unstick it

    I do not have any recipes here at work with me so this is not exact but I use Butter
    Tabasco Sauce

    Somebody will be along shortly with a good recipe I am sure

    Good luck
  4. Here's one I used last weekend:

    2 cup apple juice
    ½ cup apple cider vinegar
    ¼ cup orange juice
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoons of dry rub
    2 tablespoons of honey
    3 drops liquid smoke

    here in belgium bbq and smoking is not so common,it is 90% for grilling

    Here and there you can already find a bbq sauce[​IMG]
    but a marinade to inject is not yet available

    butchers not to give their recipe[​IMG]

    so I would like to make one myself

    One trick I use that broadens your ingredents is to to throw it all in the blender to finely chop it. I have a similiar injector as the original post and this will solve most of the too large chunk problems.

    Similar to others listed, my basic marinade includes:
    Garlic and onion poweder or salt
    dash of soy sauce
    season all salt
    melted butter

    combine that to taste with - lemon juice/OJ/italian dressing/woreshire/Heinze 57 - depending on what meat you are using and you can turn out some tasty marinade.

    My favorite "in the can" marinade is Creole Butter. You can find this in most grocery stores and it generally comes with an injector.

    I usually use apple juice and 1-2 tablespoons of my rub finely ground. On beef I sub beef broth for the apple juice. Chicken take a look at my snake bitten chicken sticky for injection and rub.

    I had a hard time finding injectable marinades until a worker in my local grocery gave me this tip.  Choose you favorite Marinade and strain it through a cheese cloth.  Inject it into the meat and then scrape the big chunks off the cheese cloth and use it as a rub.  Blessings
