If you need to get some extra flavor (or a special kind of flavor) deep into your meat, you will have to go beyond rubs and marinating. The SpitJack Flavor Inoculator™ is a heavy-duty, commercial grade tool that will penetrate up to 5.5 inches. It's precision, calibrated design lets you control the flow of the marinade or seasoning mix you are injecting. The Inoculator comes with 2 needles, 1 with a slanted open tip (for injecting a marinade that might have small spice or herb particles) and the other with a closed end and side perforations (for liquid only flavoring solutions).

On a scale of 10, my cooking skill is about a 4. Of late, I am trying to do better with grilled meat. The trade, particularly with chicken breasts seems to be to either cook long at low heat and enjoy your marinade into the center or to spend less time at high heat and struggle with flavor that clings only to the outside of the meat. I was hoping that the flavor injector would be the equalizer for fast grilling, and I am in the process of learning it.
My experience is mixed. This injector is beautiful at sliding right into the meat, and the needle infuses flavor quite thoroughly. The meat moistness is very little degraded for boneless chicken breasts because you can slide the needle into the existing butcher cut without adding punctures through the skin. I've tried a number of marinades that I picked up after a few appropriate googles. I realized quite quickly that marinades with solid pieces, like minced garlic, will not pass through the needle. I was surprised to learn also that marinades with dissolved brown sugar will clog the needle too, and the plunger gets stuck inside the syringe. I'm coming to believe that only thin liquids are practical. Another appreciated plus is that the syringe has a large capacity, and so does not need to be refilled often. A trick for filling it is to pull the plunger back and add the marinade through the hole where the needle screws in, using a turkey baster to transfer the marinade. With the syringe completely full, the injector is not operable with one hand. With average man-size hands, I can operate one-handed after the plunger is in 1/4 of the way.
My quick-grilled chicken breasts are tastier, and still moist with the flavor injection. The hardware is very sturdy, the marinade capacity is large, and the needle slides easily into the meat. Beware of clogging and plunger jams with all but thin liquids.
