Best Brisket Injection

Derrick Riches
Some people don’t bother injecting briskets. This is a mistake. A good meat injection imparts flavor and liquid into your brisket before it hits the grill. This is my best brisket injection, and I combine a little sweet and some savory to bring out the beefiness of the brisket.
Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Course Marinades/Brines
Cuisine American BBQ
Servings 1 cup

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon whiskey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar optional
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes before using it. This will ensure that the salt and sugar have dissolved properly.
  • To inject your brisket, lay it out flat. Looking down on the meat, inject into the center of the meat every two inches, working from one end to the other. Squeeze in the injector slowly and move to a new location when the liquid starts to leak out a little. Work your way through the entire brisket getting a small amount of the solution into as many places as possible.

Ofargo Marinade Injector

The Ofargo Marinade Injector is a classic style syringe. The marinade is sucked up through the needle and then pushed back into the meat. The needle on this model is large enough that it shouldn’t clog. Still, make sure that your marinade is near water thin. It is an inexpensive unit that you can purchase for around $10. It is dishwasher safe and durable enough to last for several years. The volume on this injector is small, but it will handle most jobs for a single-family.
