Their balls? They have big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

No no . these are more like roast sized pieces of meat. I've not seen them but have been told about them . they're a bit straggly and untidy looking.

I haven't run across them, but found this:

They would be tricky to cook I think, with no fat or connective tissue, and would easily turn dry.

Yes it would be the eye fillet would it?
