Stainless Steel Flavor injectors?

I have the Cajun Style one and I have a?

What's the easiest way to make the injector work better?

I am finding it hard to sue compared to other injectors I own.

The other injectors I own break with a few uses.

What's going wrong? Does it clog up? Does it break?

Hi Andy.

My injector is completely stainless steel, it doesn't have any plastic parts.

The one I had before the SS injector had a stainless steel body with a needle connector that was plastic. And that broke. And my plastic injectors was too weak for what I want to do with them.


This all stainless steel injector the push rod seems to be hard to push unlike my cheap injectors. And I am not injecting solids, Just apple and W sauce, and such into the meats...

I have a SS injector. I don't know if it's cajun or not. It has two rings for your fingers and one for the thumb. Like the one the "doctor" used as a prop in Prince's band The Revolution... lol
Anyway, it has a nylon gasket on the plunger. I rub a little canola oil on it before use and it works much easier than if I don't.

Thank you Pecanis.

I thought there was some trick to it. I've heard of the canola oil trick.

How many times do you do this? Every time you use it?

So if you're doing a brisket do the canola oil trick once?

Then wash it and put it up?

I do it once before each use.
I toss it in the dishwasher to wash, so any oil is washed off between uses. Next time I put it together to use, I rub the oil on it. I mostly use it to inject pureed trinity into smoked cajun pork roast, so that stuff is a lot thicker than just liquid. Works great.
