How do I cook my oversized pumpkin?

This year one of my pumpkins has grown to about 14kg (30lb) and I am not sure of the best way to prepare it for eating. It's the same variety as everything else in my patch which has given out about 3-4kg pumpkins. The obvious choice is cutting it into smaller bits for roasting but I am unsure what tools will be appropriate (it is the size of a small dog and larger than my carving knives) and if there are any ways to divide it that work out better than others. Has anyone been in a similar situation? My google-fu turns up either advice on "normal" sized pumpkins that peak out at about 4kg for "very large" according to a supermarket, or advice regarding show monsters three times the size that shouldn't really be eaten.
