Stop Soaking; Start Poking (Injecting)
Here is the web site www.PorkInjector.com  where you can watch our videos
 
You can go on line and read 1000 different opinions about marinating meat. Most read like this: “One of the simplest ways to flavor meat is to marinate it. That is, treat it like a sponge. All you have to do is pour sauce on the food, let it soak for a while and then cook it.”

Personally, based upon over 30 years of experience in the kitchen, as well as in the BBQ pits, I don’t believe that is true. In fact, even after hours of soaking, most marinades don’t penetrate meats like beef, pork or lamb much more than 1/8". A side effect of marinade on meat is a wet surface, which impedes the ability to crisp or obtain a nice char. In short, ‘soaking’ marinades adversely affect the taste and texture of many meats.
 
On the other hand, meats such as chicken, turkey, and some pork cuts usually absorb a little more  marinade (though not as much as we would like) and fish will literally absorb it like a sponge.
 
If the marinade contains a lot of salt or acid, they will affect the meat in a different way. Salt is important, as a flavor enhancer, and has good penetrating properties, as well as a conduit for pulling in other flavor components (like brine).
Acids can serve as a kind of marinade; fruit juices (i.e. lemon, apple, orange, pineapple, orange and white grape juice), vinegars, and even sugar-free soft drinks can break down protein, which is a process known as ‘denaturing’. However, too much acid, or even a small amount of acid over too long a time can make the surface of the meat mushy, which inhibits crispness or charring. 
 
All that said some meat cuts absolutely need additional flavoring and even the best cuts of meat can be enhanced with liquids and spices. Up until now, the only feasible alternative to soaking was injecting with an oversized syringe and needle. 
 
Unfortunately, when you go through several cases of meat (pork and beef) each week, the syringe takes too much time, is very hard on your hands and fingers and – quite frankly – it is a real pain.  Every time I injected meat, I found myself thinking that there had to be an easier way. After a lot of thought, and a long ‘trial and error’ process, I found an easier way. In fact, I found the perfect way to add liquid and spice to meat. Inject liquid - marinades, cures, seasonings - into large pieces of meat. Works great for: Pork, Beef, Chicken, Hams, Turkeys, Lamb -- works with any meat you want to add flavor and moisture to. May also be used to inject “Tenderizing Solution “into meat. Please allow me to introduce you to the
‘Auto Pump Injector System’
www.PorkInjector.com
(Patent pending). 
 
AUTO PUMP INJECTOR SYSTEM 
 
 
The Auto Pump Injector System is a culinary work of art and engineering excellence. The industrial-quality pump has a thermally protected 115v motor. It is self-priming, and features an automatic shutoff pressure switch; if it runs dry, it will shut off before causing any damage to the pump.
 
With the Auto Pump Injector System, you  can inject a case of pork shoulders in almost less time than it takes to open the case and remove the shrink wrap. Because it is so easy to use, meat gets injected from numerous different angles, which makes it a much more efficient and effective process.  In other words, you produce a better product for less time and money.
 
Clean-up is equally easy: Put the intake hose in hot/soapy water and run the pump a few seconds; move the hose to a bleach/water solution and run the pump a few more seconds; pump clear water to flush the system. It’s that fast; it’s that simple.
 
No professional kitchen is complete without The Auto Pump Injector System; no professional chef can add flavor/spice to meats to the fullest extent without The Auto Pump Injector System.
 
FAQ’s
Q: Can I run the pump without any liquids?      
 
A: Yes, for a limited amount of time, but not for an extended period.
Q: Will this system pump solids?
 
A: No. All spices should be blended in a liquid (i.e. fruit juices, water, vinegars, soft drinks) until completely dissolved. Never use any liquid that has a greater viscosity than orange juice, and never pump fatty or grease-laden liquids with this pump.
 
Q: How do I clean the outside of the pump?
 
A: After unplugging the pump, simply wipe it off with a damp towel. NEVER submerge the pump, as it is an electrocution hazard and will void the warrantee.
 
Q Will the Auto Pump Injector System use more spice and liquid than the soaking method?
 
A: Yes because it becomes easier to add the liquid/spice mixture to your favorite cuts of meat. The job is no longer tedious and painful. The average kitchen employee will be more conscientious when injecting meats and therefore the meat gets more and a wider disbursement of liquid and spice. When your kitchen staff sees how much the meat swells with each injection they will tend to inject closer together and at many different angles. But all of these are positive not the negatives of the old hit and miss way of injecting meats.
 
Q: What cuts and types of meats can I inject?
 
A: Almost any type and cut, thick cut Bone on Pork Chops, Pork Shoulders, Pork Loins, Hams, Beef Brisket, Rib Roast, Top and Bottom Rounds, Chuck, Plate, Sirloin, and Shank. Any solid Muscle meats.

We inject our Pork Shoulders for Smoked Pork
We inject our Brisket for Smoked Brisket
We inject both Top and Bottom Round for Italian Beef
We inject Chickens (makes beer can chicken without the can)
I have (although not this year yet) injected pork chops
And this fall we will inject our turkeys.
I'd like to and most likely will inject some raw hams and smoke them this summer.

Re:BBQ Auto Pump Injector System. 2012/02/10 19:32:14
No we use different recipes for Beef, Chicken, and Pork. And sometimes like for pork loins, chops, or big thick steaks we use what most people consider a marinade, and just inject it into the meat.  You just have to be careful with some marinades because when you inject them they will color the chicken breast or loins. But for chicken we use Soy sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, a good red wine vinegar, lemon juice, dry mustard, salt, and black pepper. We run it thru a high speed blender (Vitamix) for five minutes just to make sure it's all liquid and mixed well and inject it. It takes longer to mix than to inject. LOL

By the way our local HD has no problem with our injector. The pump is built for fresh water and most everything else is available at most restaurant supply stores. What I haven't done yet is inject loins and then re-inject them half way thru the cooking process. But I think it would just make them awesome. It would lengthen the cooking time but think about how juicy they would be.

Great innovation.
I would recommend using food safe components in your build. You likely have thought of this.
I noticed you mentioned brass. I see all kinds of warnings of lead in brass. Perhaps eventually, you could find Stainless Steel parts. Also, maybe a little research into what acidic liquids may do to the internal components of a pump over time.
Good luck with your new creation!

All the parts are made by companies that provide NFS products for the food industry. So there shouldn't be any concern about the 3 instant on/off  brass connections. The same connections are used in every ham suppliers operation in the country.

True Doc, I was replying to the fellow who said he had a similar idea a couple weeks ago, that this has been an ongoing project of yours for over a year.  And necroed means reviving an old post, no negative connotations except that it can confuse someone not familiar with the timeline.

Re:BBQ Auto Pump Injector System. 2013/08/27 12:37:51
A little recognition for the Doctor of BBQ's Pork injector.
 
First let me say that, in my mind, 'Meathead' , is THE premier reviewer in the BBQ industry. He is a successful author of numerous books on BBQ and runs the web site http://www.amazingribs.com.

As Meathead  is quick to point out, Amazing Ribs Is All About The Zen Of Barbecue, Grilling, And Outdoor Cooking. However. in that description, Meathead fails to acknowledge all of the thoughtful reviews of equipment related to BBQ, Grilling, Smoking, and Outdoor Cooking. I have purchased several of the items he endorses, and will not buy anything BBQ- related without first checking to see what he has had to say.

One more thought: Scottie Johnson is very well known among the BBQ competitors, and has become one of the names whispered from one team to another when he shows up at a contest anywhere in the country. It's not uncommon to hear, “Did you know Scottie Johnson is here” or “Hey, the Cancer Sucks Team just pulled in". Scottie has raised a lot of money to fight cancer, and he is certainly someone I respect greatly.

Obviously, I was delighted to learn that Meathead and Scottie Johnson liked my Pork Injector. Unfortunately, they (both) missed one important aspect: the Pork Injector is an excellent piece of equipment for anyone that loves to cook outdoors; it’s not limited to contests, catering, or injecting large amounts of pork and brisket. The cleanup is so fast and easy (2 minutes) that it’s great for a couple of thick-cut rib eyes, pork chops or many other dishes you may prepare for the family. In fact, the cleanup is so easy you may find other family members using it to improve the taste of most anything they cook in, or outdoors.
Don’t miss this opportunity to 'jump start' your next cookout. Big or small, you and your family deserve it.

Now the Reviews:



The Pork Injector
This motorized "Auto Pump Injector System" is the state of the art and can really save you time and hand cramps if you have a lot of meat to inject. You make up your injection, pit it in a bucket or bottle, and lower the intake tube into the liquid. Then just insert the needle, squeeze the trigger gently, and slowly withdraw the needle to disperse the fluid. In minutes the whole job is done.


They sent me one to test, and it worked great, but I don't cook as many pork butts and briskets as competition cooks do, so I promptly passed it along to Scottie Johnson of CancerSucksChicago.com, a team AmazingRibs.com co-sponsors.

He has won the Jack Daniels World Championship Barbecue, no small accomplishment. He said:

"It's awesome. I fumbled around a bit at first, just because it was such a new procedure for me. Once I had it going, the ease of the flow and not having to refill a major plus. Normally your hands get wet and slippery during the process but this device eliminated all of that. No grabbing paper towels to dry my hands during the injection process. And I can see where it would be really super for doing a whole hog or in a restaurant or catering situation."

Good question. Our local and state health department love it. There are currently 16 BBQ restaurants in 8 states that use it, and a 5 store grocery chain using them. It's all NSF approved parts so I don't see why anyone would have a problem. Oh there is also a 3 unit chain in South America using them and two restaurants in Ireland. But I know nothing about their rules. And of course lots and lots of competition BBQ teams using the system.

It's right on the web page in the FAQ.
Are the pump parts NSF approved?
A: Yes all parts are NFS 51 and NFS 61 approved.


There is a big difference when it comes to using NSF approved materials, and having the unit itself NSF approved.  
How the unit is designed, how easy it is to clean, the way the parts interact and fit are all factors, among many other things that are related to the product design.  The first step is to use NSF approved materials, there are many steps in the design that must be considered to make the unit itself NSF approved.
A potable water pump may be NSF approved for water, but if that pump is used with other substances that may contain solids or other materials that are susceptible spoilage, then it may fall under a different classification.  Pumps used for food related products must be specially made to allow for easy cleaning and eliminate the nooks and crannies that can harbor potentially hazardous materials.  
Commercial meat pumping units are normally used for cured meats such as hams or bacon to insure the inner portions have curing agent.  These units use NSF approved pumps, not just approved parts.  
Saying a product contains NSF materials is not the same as the unit itself having NSF approval, there are many other factors.  Buyer be ware, and I would not recommend this unit for commercial use, and would never recycle any liquids that have already been exposed to the raw food being pumped.  This is a normal practice when pumping meats, as the excess brine runs into a holding tank and can then be recycled thru the pump, and thus contains raw meat contaminates.
 
To check for NSF approved products go here:
http://info.nsf.org/Certified/Food/
If the product is not listed here, it is not approved.  There are no exceptions.
