Brunswick Stew dates back to the 1860s, when it was served as a complete meal. We now use it as an accompaniment to barbecues. It is delicious picnic fare when served with country ribs, coleslaw or potato salad. When I make this stew, I double the recipe and freeze small portions so we can enjoy it at several meals.

"This is not therecipe I use . It's good but needs more ingredients , baby limas, green beans , Liquid smoke for flavor , a couple of dashes of hot sauce also helps . Thank you , Derrell"
