TODAY’S PATENT – APPARATUS FOR COOKING MEAT
The Apparatus for Cooking Meat was invented by Ronald William Scharbo, George C. McKerrow, Jr., Phillip Jack Snoke on December 12, 2006 bearing patent number US7146905B2.
For cooking poultry or fowl and some other types of meats, it has been recognized as being desirable to marinade and baste the meat for added flavor. Some poultry basting devices recognize that it is important to get steam from a liquid, i.e., either the meat liquid itself, water, or a marinade, into the inner portions of the meat.
An apparatus for cooking meat is provided. The apparatus preferably includes a base having at least one liquid container connected to an upper surface of the base and a holding cavity formed in the upper surface of the base between outer walls of the liquid container and outer peripheries of the base. The apparatus also preferably includes at least one separate meat infuser positioned register with the liquid container and receive steam from the liquid container. The meat infuser preferably has an infuser body and a plurality of openings positioned in side peripheries of the infuser body so that when liquid positioned in the liquid container heats, steam from the liquid travels through the infuser body, through the openings therein, and toward meat positioned to overlie the infuser body.
