    Default How to get rid of injection lines?

    This weekend we used the sweet swine brine and did an injection on the ribs and were pleased with the results though we had injection trace lines in the ribs. We inserted the needle between each one and pulled out while injecting to reduce the streaking. Any suggestions? Do you get the same great flavor in the ribs by just brining overnight?

    P.S we also used the brisket injection also and it was great as well with the same technique of pulling while injecting though no injection lines on it.

    I have never injected nor brined pork ribs. I have never seen the need too.
    I have injected things that I cure through, like bellies, loins and butts.
    Try to keep your liquid as clear as possible, maybe a bit watered down. That's my best guess.
    I think the lean brisket will absorb more evenly than the pork.

    I don't get injection lines from the Swine Brine, but I do get some color. I never worry about it because by the time the judges might see the color, they have already scored fro appearance. If you are getting lines, then for some reason, you are not getting even distribution of the product thorough, and that is not good. How long did you let the injection equalize before you cooked them?

    I would say 20 to 30 minutes. And we might have made it too strong possibly. Next run we will post photos of the results.
