I believe the look alike is a Berkeleys polypore. They are variable in color. 
 

Bob, I’ve heard some red boletes are mildly upsetting to the lower GI track, those are not an issue? I see them regularly.

Those were my grandmother's favorites. Yet, she still put a silver half-dollar in the frying pan when she cooked them. :laugh: 

 

Old world habits die hard.

What's the silver dollar for?

Supposedly silver turns black if the mushroom is poisonous. Only problem is that most of the time it doesn't work.

In the Caribbean when they eat barracuda that's how they test for ciguatera.  Before they grill it they stick a penny in the flesh of the filet. If the penny comes out bright copper color that supposedly means the fish has ciguatera.   Of course it's an old wives tale.

We've been enjoying them for years, and my parents as well. Both fresh and dried.

Coffee, how many hens do you find in SE Mass? I find a few on the cape but not a ton. A few keeps me happy but I’d like more 

My best trip was 3 large fruiting bodies in about 2 hours  I only started looking last fall though so i'm an amateur, starting out with polypores so I don't kill myself.  They prefer oaks and maples and will fruit in the same spot every year so once you find one you can mark it down and come back.
