Unless you are a chef of the most well-cropped and grown turkey, you don’t know about the importance of the turkey bag. It keeps the smell concealed, which is important if you are trying to sneak a meal past your family. Being in the height of the turkey season, Sam Flores’ 12Grain have released the 12Grain Turkey Bags, easily the best odorless protection for all your turkey packaging and transporting needs. Not surprisingly, a very popular purchase for those in Humboldt, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties.
