I use this recipe with a few exceptions. I don't use the chicken. Instead I use a can of roast beef. I also do not add BBQ sauce. I add Texas Pete (to taste) I never EVER add potatoes, beans, etc. To me that is not true Brunswick stew. I never have to add water either, but we like ours a little thick.
