    Hey everybody, hope your Thursday is going well for ya. I was just wondering what kind of needle I need to look for that will work with cooking twine to sew up chickens. I have had it on the top of my noggin for several weeks that I want to do a deboned stuffed chicken cordon bleu. Is there an easy solution to this or do I need to go to a specialized cooking store or online? Thanks in advance and sorry for my ineptitude. lol

    Bump. So I was wondering about some kind of crochet needle or what? Can I whip something up myself? Pretty handy.

    I know they make poultry needles. I've seen them at my grocery store in a kit with twine. If you can't find them you can drill a hole in the top of a chop stick to run the twine through and then just sharpen the skinny end with a pencil sharpener.

    TJ any craft store should have Tapestry Needles the butchers twine will go threw.


    It is tight in there a fishing line would work better.

    I use a chop stick to poke a hole then poke the butchers twine through. I build skin on frame kayaks and the needles I use for that would work.

    I would think you could get a needle at Hobby Lobby or a craft store that would work or maybe a big fishing hook.

    These are exactly what I use: The curved one works great for this.

     
  10. I use a real poultry needle...works great and should last a lifetime or many!

    Now that is the advice I was looking for as I have very very large saltwater hooks. I never would have thought of that. awesome. I will just semi straighten one out. How perfect is that? Thanks everybody for your ideas. I was hoping I could use something I already had.
