Brunswick Stew

So, I have a hankerin' for brunswick stew.  Was thinking of roasting several whole chickens and a pork shoulder on the BGE.  I've actually never cooked brunswick stew before.  Any eggers out there care to offer any sage advice or recipes?

    Did this one a couple of years ago. Recipe is from Southern Soul BBQ, St Simons Island, GA, By way of The Washington Post.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Leave out the Lima beans and you have a winner

  • I love making stew. Anytime I have leftover chicken, brisket and pork I vacuum seal it and save it for when I make stew. Usually making 4-5 gallons at a time.

    I feel bad for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day

    Stew is super easy...Set on low..stir ~ every hour for a few minutes... cook for ~8 to 10 hrs..

    Recipe below:

    4 28oz cans of fire roasted tomatoes
    1 bag of shoepeg corn (Silver queen)
    3 Cans of Creamed corn
    Vinegar to taste, I like a little more than some Between 3 and 4 tblsp's
    ~ 2 quarts of that sauce you have
    ~ 1 lb of Brisket
    ~ 2 lbs of BBQ pulled pork 
    1 whole smoked chicken (cooked until fall off the bone)

    heat up the tomatoes, corn, sauce, vinegar..then throw in the proteins..

    If its too thick, you can thin it out with a couple cans of water...

    For the brisket, I used McKormick's Montreal steak seasoning mixed with Byron's butt rub..

    Chicken, I just use a chicken rub I have lying around the house and some mayonaise..

    And the pork, I inject with apple juice, honey, and Vinegar, I coat with blended apple pie filling then dust with Byron's Butt rub.then smoke to about 195..

    I must be honest, I did not take the extra time to put in the "pork butt jelly" into the pot, but the last batch I did...

    it was a flavor game changer...

    My grandfather owned a restaurant in Atlanta in the 50's called The Green Fly Inn and their specialty was brunswick stew and something called a stew burger which was a griddled buger with grilled onions covered in brunswick stew. 

    I have the stew recipe but honestly it's not great.  Uses a lot of nutrasweet.
