I decided to do a Head to Head comparison of two stainless steel meat injectors to see which one was the best.
The contenders were Grill Beast and Ostro.
I was excited when I started this project but that turned South pretty fast.
It turns out that the two products are absolutely IDENTICAL.
Here is the Grill Beast injector.
And here is the Ostro meat injector.
Both brands come with three injector needles.
- A small needle for injecting chicken, pork chops, etc.
- A large needle with a single large opening for injecting briskets, butts and shoulders with marinades containing particles.
- A large needle with multiple small openings for injecting large cuts with marinades without particles.
Here is a Side by Side of the injection barrels.
So, yeah…both brands are made by the same Chinese factory. The only difference between the two products is marketing and price.
On the marketing side the Grill Beast is the clear winner. Grill Beast provides an insert with instructions, a recipe and a code for a downloadable eBook with more useful information. The download code is on the back of the insert 🙂
The Ostro and the Grill Beast are both fine products. When it comes down to choosing the best meat injector I am going to go with Grill Beast simply because they are a little more helpful.
