What do you do after you have butchered and processed your bird from when you completed processing it until you go to cook it? As in 1.) what do you do with the birds once you've processed it while you are processing the rest of the birds you plan to process that day? 2.) how do you store them in the fridge while they go through rigor mortis, assuming you plan to eat it in a few days? 3.) a day or so before you eat it do you switch it to a bribe? I usually initially put them in an ice bath while I complete processing all the birds being processed that day. Then I put them in a large ziplock with ice water in the fridge for a few days while they go through rigor. Then the day before I plan to cook them I will sometimes put them in a brine. It's kind of a hassle to put big ol' turkeys in a ziploc so trying to find better, more convenient, ways to do this.
