RePointing brick?

Does anyone have any advice on re-pointing brick joints?  I am debating between grinding them out and piping in mortar with a mortar bag.  We've had a bad winter with freeze and thaw causing some of the shifting of the brick work. BillSee More

I just fired up the oven. The outside walls registered 14 degrees F. The fire inside is going well. We should be making pizza for lunch, blank flat breads for the freezer, Pane Francese, stuffed breads and roast loin of pork with roasted potatoes, cauliflower, and string beans for dinner.
