Has anyone used a Seal a Meal for their Meat Birds?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,  Wondering if anyone has tried a Seal a Meal for their Meat Birds (whole bird) ? Did not know if this would squeeze everything out of them, creating a "dry" meat, or if it is even possible to use the vacuum method for a whole bird. Also are there any stores that carry Shrink bags? Need to get something today.. 

                                          Thank you :)

I've used a Foodsaver on my birds. I haven't seen bags large enough for a whole bird, but if you're going to part it out the vacuum sealer is fine. You can even seal it with a marinade inside the bag so it marinates as it thaws.

Thank you, I went ahead & ordered some shrink bags. I used 2 gallon freezer bags for the ones we did the other night. They weighted out 7 - 8 lbs. Can't wait for a nice roasted & stuffed lady.
