When I spied these mushrooms, I was thinking, "look at the size of those. Gonna be some good eats!" It was kind of odd that I had to use a chainsaw to cut them. You know, usually, you just give them a little tug and they come loose. But, I didn't think much about it. I really started to wonder though, when I had to use a bandsaw to shave slices, but, well, maybe they were a little tough. As I fried them, they gave off a very pleasant woody odor. I think I'm going to have the stove checked; the slices never did soften up.
