  Original pot?
by rexvaughan

Brunswick stew evidently originated in this area. At least the pot in the photo purports to be the vessel in which it was first cooked over 100 years ago. Good Brunswick Stew is hard to find, but there are a few places here that make a decent attempt. It is a hearty soup/stew with pork, chicken, maybe some beef and/or rabbit, tomatoes, corn, onions, green pepper and lima beans. Like many traditional recipes there are many variations but it is a delicious accompaniment to Bar B Que.and is really best with southern cornbread. The best on earth comes from Harold's Barbeque in Atlanta or from my wife.
