I’d never had Brunswick Stew before I moved to Alabama. I think about every BBQ joint has their own version of it. I’d made some pulled pork last week so I decided to try my hand at it. This is so good and even better the next day. It is a great way to use up leftover pulled pork or shredded chicken. I just happened to have some shredded chicken in the freezer so we repurposed it and turned it in to this tasty stew. I served it with hoecakes to sop up all of the delicious broth.
Like it spicy? Add some hot sauce towards the end of the cooking time.
