Thank you Austin, I understand it now. I wish all the meat syringe companies would listen to their consumers. The reason I say that, is it’s extremely hard to find needles that can handle a thick marinade without clogging up. And the needle/draw off spike, has a large enough spout to handle but isn’t designed for that. I have a great injector but wanted to by this for speed of injecting. This should be fine with a bacon brine and we will soon find out as butcher weather is approaching. Thank you again Austin.
