    Brunswick Stew, inspired by Kevin Gillespie, by Dave Joachim
    LINK: https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...brunswick-stew

    Top Chef Fan Favorite Kevin Gillespie says that barbecue is always served with Brunswick stew in his native Georgia. Squirrel is the traditional meat, but Kevin likes to use beef and pork or even scraps of barbecued pork. His recipe also includes a secret ingredient that amplifies the flavors of everything else.

    Burch Barrel Tripod Hanging Grill, Smoker & Fire Pit, by Spinaker
    LINK: https://amazingribs.com/ratings-revi...s-burch-barrel

    Been on the hunt for a sturdy camping grill that doubles as a firepit? The Burch Barrel is a combination camping grill and firepit that hangs from a tripod and burns charcoal, wood, or both. This is not your Grandpa's cowboy cooker. It blends an open fire camp grill with a vertical lift Argentine style mechanism like a Santa Maria Grill. It is well-built, versatile, unique and a ton of fun to use.

    Our lake house is in Brunswick county VA. Home of Brunswick Stew. Yes, squirrel is how it all started.


      Squirrel Stew is where is how it all began. My dad makes Brunswick Stew with squirrel meat...


        Squirrels aren't too thick on the ground over here in the colonies, I'm curious what sort of flavour it has?
        Can anyone give me an idea here or is the flavour something unique?

          I have not killed and eaten any squirrel since I was much younger, perhaps 35 or 40 years ago. It is a fairly dark meat and tastes somewhat like pork, but not exactly. Perhaps of mix of pork and chicken (hey everything tastes like chicken) with a slightly (but not too strong) wild taste, probably because around here they primarily eat acorns from all the oak trees.

        Love brunswick stew!


          That stew looks good..


            Sounds delicious. I knew David Joachim was on Meathead's staff but didn't know about his serious recipe/cookbook creds. I also enjoyed watching Kevin Gillespie on Top Chef. He's a hella chef. Good combo, as this recipe shows.

              Every time I have had Brunswick Stew, it has also had lima beans and sometimes potatoes. I love the stuff, I need to make some.


                That Burch Barrell is nice too.


                  Anyone else having a hard time viewing part 2 of the Burch Barrel review. The stew looks amazing too!


                    Squirrels are vegan and eat nuts etc. They have a light grassy taste and then what’s prevalent in their environment. So maybe acorns or pecans like mine. Yum. At least that has been my experience.

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
