Mike Stines Reports:
I recently received a box from Grill Beast that included several items: a thermometer, a pair of BeastArmor gloves, a set of BeastClawz and a BeastInjector in a combination called the “BeastKit.”
While the four-piece package had useful items that I will add to my arsenal of BBQ gear, my favorite was the injector. Unlike some other brands that have a plastic barrel and short (2 1/2-inch or so) needles the “BeastInjector” has a metal barrel with two 5 7/8-inch needles. The stainless-steel barrel holds two ounces of marinade making it easy to inject large pieces of meat such as a brisket or pork butt. It’s also dishwasher safe and covered by a lifetime warranty.
The injector comes with three needles – two of which are 5 7/8-inches long… one is a simple needle with a beveled tip and the other hosts 12 injection ports along the length of the needle to evenly disperse a marinade. The third needle is shorter… about 3 1/2 inches and is designed for precision injection into smaller pieces of meat (think chicken thighs or steaks).
The four piece kit retails for $90.97. The injector alone is $25.97. The tools are well worth the investment as they all carry lifetime warranties and a money-back guarantee.
