If you are looking for a southern style Brunswick stew, you will be highly disappointed. If you follow the receipe without doctoring, you get a stew that is the same color as chicken and rice soup and a taste that is just very plain. Doctored it up by adding pork tenderloin, BBQ sauce, Frank's Hot Sauce, tomato puree, a can of tomato soup and several other spices becasue it was very bland and just the wrong color. I would call this a northerner's interpretation of a deeply southern dish. Get a different recipe if you are looking for a Brunswick stew similar to those served in southern BBQ joints



needs a can of tomato paste.
