How \'Bout Some Brunswick Stew

It all started last evening while putting together an overnight pulled pork cook on the BGE for a little office lunch celebration today. I decided to cook an extra butt and some chicken to make up a nice batch of Brunswick Stew. I like to use Red's recipe as a basis which can be found here:

It takes a lot of ingredients and a BIG pot to do it right.

I like mine good and meaty as well. Chicken and pulled pork in large portions are the order of the day.

A nice long simmer really brings it all together.

After sampling a couple of servings for dinner, we had 22 servings left for the freezer to carry us thru the coming winter months.

If you haven't made brunswick stew to go with your BBQ, you are really missing something in your life.

Good Stuff.... Enjoy and have a great week end!

  • Making plans to do it when I get home next week. What BBQ Sauce is that, regular cattleman's? Thanks for posting and getting me going

    Hi Frank,

    I used the regular Cattleman's as that was what was on sale this week, you can use anything you like pretty much.

    Do some show and tell if you get a chance to make some.
  • Thanks Bob, will do. I'm on the road for a week and the cooler temps when I get home will definitely put me in the mood for some Stew!

    It looks like you have some stock there on your counter but the recipe doesn't list it. Or does all the liquid come from the tomatoes?

    I'm going to use some pork from my freezer this afternoon and make a batch. Looks good!

    Hi Cheryl,

    I don't follow the recipe to the letter, just as a "get started" guide. I use chicken stock and beer for my liquid and just play it by ear on how thick or thin you like your stew. Follow your taste buds, there is no right way or wrong way when it comes to Brunswick stew.

    Pork from the freezer works great, I like to chop mine pretty fine before adding to the pot.
