How to cook enormous unidentified hard squash?

As you can see, this is a big'n.
The butternut is in the pic as a point of reference.
I heard someone say he made one into a sort of apple pie filling, though I don't know how he did so.
First of all, do you know what type of squash this is?

More importantly, any cooking advice?

I could place it on a sheet pan, prick holes, and bake.

Or, should I attempt to cut it into large pieces and then bake?

Perhaps the sheer size of the thing has me befuddled but I am at a loss.

Thanks for any help!
Having trouble with the photo. I've added it in my reply to myself. Sorry!
