We dress the chucks and freeze them till the corn is ready. Thaw them and quarter them out and parboil them till they are almost done then put them on a hotdog stick and roast over a fire while the corn is cooking on the coals. Leave the husks on the corn and soak it in water or beer for an hour or so and throw it on the coals for 10-15 min. This and a keg on ice you'll have a good ole Yankee chuck roast. A lot of people turn their nose up to eating woodchuck till they try it. The roast seems to get bigger every year when everyone starts saving their chucks. My one buddy brought 270 chucks 2 years ago.

Does it matter how big they are?

My dad always says the younger and/or smaller ones taste better. I kinda want to try nutria. Apparently, if you slow roast them in a croc-pot they aren't bad.

just like anything , The ones in their prime are somewhat better, the older are fatter and slightly tougher but still good if processed right.

In my opinion, a "banana head" doe tastes better than a button buck.
