    how do you package turkeys? I have a vacume sealer, that I use for my chickens, and they turn out so nice and pretty! It's definately not big enough for a turkey though. How do you all package your turkeys?

    Sorry, you can buy bigger bags, or just cut the turkey up first. If you don't want to cut it put maybe you could go to your local butcher or meat processor and ask if they could package it. [​IMG]

    Most of these are going to be sold fresh (not frozen). Because of laws and such, I have to do the packaging myself. They need to be packaged whole. Where can I find bags big enough? Can I find the vacume bags big enough? I can fold the top down a bit and still seal it-- I think-- If I can find the big vacume bags.
