    I've heard McMurray has the extra large freezer bags for turkeys.

    Yes, Cornerstone! I highly recommend their shrink bags for freezing. You need to be able to dunk the bird in 200 degree water to shrink the bag around the birds though. We use a cheap turkey fryer from Walmart to heat the water.

    Jim McLaughlin at Cornerstone is very helpful.
