  • Young ones are best fried or roasted till tender.
  • Older ones can be simmered for 2 to 3 hours and used as the base for a stew.

    I'm sorry, but that made me giggle that Chuck rated the Woodchuck.;) I think it's too early in the morning.:) I'll have to pass this one along to the DH and his group of merry men when they are next gathered for their annual man retreat (hunting).

    Ahh...this is how I started out fixing the delicious little Woodchuck. I'm giving it a 4 because this still gives a great taste for the young ones. However, I've found that grilling and basting is the real way to go. I've turned many people onto eating the Chuck thru grilling. A low fire and basting is the only way to go for a 5 star. LOL! A good cleaned Chuck with the scent gland removed is as good as any piece of wild game meat there is. Yes you have to soak and parboil the older ones first but that's part of the fun. Thank's for posting this. Chuck


I am no longer single. I found me an amazing man and we married, it has been almost 3 years now. My little girl is 13 now and she is amazing. I went to school and got my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and I work for the State as a Parole Officer now. I have realized that I hate cooking. I really do hate it. Luckily I married a man who loves to cook. He hates to bake, and I actually do like to bake. So I am what one would consider a somewhat mediocre baker. I still think about my Zaar Angel all the time. She knows who she is. I do enjoy to crochet, I do that a lot here lately. I use to do counted cross stitch, yet I don't do that anymore. I can't watch TV as well as I can while I crochet.
