Brunswick Stew

Brunswick Stew

In North Carolina, you'll find Brunswick stew is a common barbecue accompaniment, though it's hearty enough to be a main dish. Traditionally, it might include everything harvested on the farm and a few items from the woods (particularly squirrel), but this version limits the meats to chicken and pork.
