Coolness!  I will go and check those out!  Thanks!

 

If yall ever see anything that "sounds" funny or looks miss spelled....I have been on the kindle fire.  I cant get that dang auto correct thing off!!!  Argh!  It will sub words in after I hit the send button.

 

Craig...that one looks closer to the one I am dying to replicate!  Gibson's BBQ here in town makes the best.  I wanna learn how to make my own...similar to theirs.  This one sounds like I can tweak and get close.  Thanks for all the suggestions!

This is my great aunt Mattie's Brunswick stew recipe.She's 86 and probably got it from my great grandmother, so it's old and been around awhile. I asked her if she minded me giving it out. "Lord no Honey. You give it to anyone you want to. Good recipes are supposed to be shared." She lives outside of Atlanta, so she knows Brunswick Stew. I was in most BBQ places around Atlanta when I was a kid. This is just as good if not better than any of them. I can't say it's the best in the world because I haven't tried every one in the world. Most recipes have lima beans and potatoes in it. She left them out. Lets you have the full flavor. I think the vinegar sets it apart from other kinds of stew. I've even made it so thick that you can make sandwiches from it. A nice big thick pulled pork sandwich with slaw and a bowl of Brunswick stew and you think you've died and gone to heaven. This is the only recipe I have. It makes a bunch. I freeze it in quarts. It used to be made from game. The first time I made it, I made from squirrel, venison, and pork.

 

6 lbs. chicken

6 lbs. pork

3 lbs. beef

3 bottles ketchup

64 ounces tomato juice

1/3 cup vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

3 quarts corn (kernel or cream)

hot sauce to taste

salt and pepper to taste

 

Cook chicken in large pot til done. Pull meat off bones and grind. Save broth to add if too thick.

 

Cook pork and beef together in large pot. pull meat off bones and grind.

 

Mix all together and cook for about an hour, stirring often to prevent corn from sticking. DO NOT let stew scorch!!! Add chicken broth if too thick.

 

You can add more or less of anything above to suit your own taste.

 

Pretty simple. I didn't change a thing. This is her exact recipe.

Hoe you love this as much as I have. BBQ just ain't the same without Brunswick Stew. ( I hope you try it, cuz I'm a one fingered typist and it took me forever to type this!!!)

Biggron!  I think you just saved me!  Bless your Sweet Grandmother's Heart!  That is the one I am going to try....but I will add the limas and such.

 

I like mine with a thin juice...and hush puppies!

 

Looks easy enough!

 

Thanks so much for sharing this!

3T vinegar
2 (16oz) cans lima or butter beans

You're more than welcome Kat. Enjoy.  I know that lima beans and potatoes are traditional but I like it without them and I love limas and potatoes.  Might try it without thinning it down first. You might like it.

 

Now just how good are your hush puppies? My wife of 32 yrs died in '03 and took her recipe with her. I've tried but I can't come close. Probably more TLC that I can add.

I have never tried brunswick stew, but was a cold rainy day in e tn so decided to give it a shot.

this is very close to to what mvincent42 shared from food network.

4 cups chicken stock
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 1/5 lbs some pp I made a few weeks ago and froze
1 1/2 cups soflaq finishing sauce that I always keep around
1/2 cup store bought bbq sauce
10 oz bag cream corn frozen
14 oz bag Lima beans
1 stick butter
3 small sweet onions
4 cloves garlic
2 tbl worch sauce
2 tbl brown sugar
1 tbl pepper
1 tbl salt
1/4 tsp cayene pepper

butter onions and garlic went first, when got them browned up a bit, just threw everything else in and brought to a boil and turned down to liw for hour and a half.

now just because I had them in fridge added a chopped green pepper and chopped up about 8 or 9 brussell sprouts.

as I mentioned above I have never tried to make brunswick stew, what I failed to mention is I have slso never eaten it. what a deprived life I have led. this is one of the best things I have ever had.

I will be tweeking this recipe, just because it seems like I can never leave anything alone, but this was so good I do not know how it could be much better.

There is a BBQ place here in Huntsville....and I am dead set on getting a recipe that is just like theirs.  I love it...and left over smoked meats...are they way to go with it!  IMHO!
