Got this from our preacher's wife and has got to be, hands down, the best Brunswick stew we have ever eaten. I used this recipe for the Thanksgiving dinner at work and took home first prize in the "other" category and grand prize over all.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a large crock pot. Cook on low heat for 8 hours stirring occasionally.
  2. This can be cooked on high for 4 hours but you need to watch it more closely for sticking.
  3. Goes GREAT with cornbread!

Wow! This tastes just like the Brunswick stew we get at our local bbq here in Alabama! Yum! I used refrigerated containers of bbq since they were on sale. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! No more picking it up when I can make it at home!

Followed the recipe but added 1/2 cup chicken stock and 12 ozs frozen lima beans. Also, the corn and cream corn I used were thawed frozen, as well. The last couple of hours, I added steamed potatoes that were cubed, because that's how my Grandmother from Savannah made it. Can't get too much more authentic than this!
