    Bkhuna as a Virginian, I disagree. It was made prior to the Civil War in Brunswick County, VA. Here is an interesting article.
    This has been a friendly debate for many, many decades.

    Shouldn't have to go far for squirrel. Seems like there's plenty of 'em right here in this website.

    So today I went to the butcher to get my pork butt, and I took the advice of Alabama Smoke -- told the butcher what I was planning and asked what they recommend. She told me that she uses beef chuck for brunswick stew, grabbed me some and gave me some tips on how she makes her brunswick stew. So I definitely went with that!

    Highly agree, regardless of protein used, if it was already smoked, no sear...

    Sounded to me like he was mighta gonna toss raw chuck into a pot of water / boullion...

    As previous stated: in that case, me?

    I would sear it.

    Thanks fer sharin yer experience in th proper selection of th proper ingredients with us; it'll definitely help me start out much closer to regionally correct Brunswick Stew...

    Much appreciated, Brother!

    Not sure about beef. I have always used smoked chicken thigh meat and smoked pork butt. Call me a traditionalist
    When I assemble a Brunswick stew, I use meats that I have already cooked/smoked. I usually smoke them on Saturday, then make the stew on Sunday. I don't sear anything, just smoke it like you would just to eat. I think if it were me and I HAD to use beef I would use chuck roast and smoke it until you develop a good bark. Then fridge overnight and cube the next day for your stew. You have to use cubed potatoes and lima beans/butterbeans or it is not a traditional stew (Born and raised in Virginia). I also add a little brown sugar for the sweet and savory and hot sauce for the spicy bite. Let us know how it comes out!
    Once you use the recipe on the site, try this one to see how it compares. I don't use 1.5 cups of bbq sauce but use .75 cup bbq sauce and .75 ketchup.

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.
