Directions for hobby farm use:
Heat large pot of water to 180-195ºF – large enough for bird and water displacement.
1. Place bird in bag.
2. Try to remove as much air as possible (give it a hug!) and seal bag almost closed, or seal around a straw. This straw can be a plastic or metal straw. It is used to expel as much of the remaining air in the bag as possible. 
3. Place in the hot water for 2-3 seconds and remove from water. Quickly tighten the seal (remove straw prior to tightening the seal).
4. Pat dry with towel.
**Zip ties or hog rings work well to seal shrink bags.
Happy butchering!
