Re: depression days woodchuck and suckers
I do chucks on the grill alot in the summer. Esp the young ones. I just dress them out making sure the scent glans get removed, cut the legs off then the back in half making 6 pieces, and toss them on the grille. I use a vinegar and oil base basting sauce I use for chicken to keep them moist. Since it's not sugar based you can baste alot and it won't burn.
They are very lean meat and will dry out quick if you don't keep them moist. You could probably wrap the pieces in bacon and smoke them too but I have not tried that yet. Maybe this summer. LOL.
I've found you have to soak the older chucks overnight in some salt water tho to get a better taste. Just rinse then pat dry before throwing them on. That's both the young and old ones.
If you want the sauce recipe just yell.
Enjoy the day.
