    we got an odd one last week as well... I assumed it was a Chucklehead at the time... but then I thought about it and Chuckleheads eyes usually dont blow right?

    I cooked it on the bbq.
    The flesh definitely looked different than say, a Red.
    Was darker, but not DARK.
    Looked kind of like whitefish flesh.
    Not as flaky as Reds, but made great tacos.

    Yield wasnt as much as i would have thought, such a huge head..
