Brunswick Stew Recipe

This Brunswick Stew throws the whole garden (OK frozen garden because it’s winter) into the pot along with deep, smoky barbecue flavors that’ll have you drinking the broth from the pot. Where other cold weather stews and soups are super rich with cream-based broths, this tomato/barbecue sauce broth is IT.
