Default Brunswick Stew - North Carolina Style

I enjoy the Smithfield's Chicken and Barbecue version of Brunswick Stew and I want to try cooking it at home. Does anyone here have a great recipe?

Isn't NC Brunswick Stew basically just barbeque pork (pulled pork, shredded or chopped) in a light tomato base with baby limas, corn, and such? I'll check my Southern cookbooks for you, Snowpea. I love Brunswick Stew, too, but never made it -- just ate it at either Smithfield's or Jackson's Big Oak Barbecue down in Wilmington. I wonder if Smithfield's would tell you how they make theirs?

From a place in Rocky Mount:

Brunswick stew is now most commonly made with chicken, or a combination of several meats, which may include rabbit, squirrel, beef, and pork. Onions, corn, and tomatoes are usually included, and many recipes call for lima beans, peas, and/or okra.

The volunteer fire department out where my parents are in rural NC has sold Brunswick Stew the same way for at least 30 years, made with chicken not pork. I remember seeing it being made in a giant (and I mean Giant) black pot outside over a fire.

Hey, thanks for the responses. I found a NC version at: http://www.angelfire.com/folk/primecuts/brunswick.html. I want to use a crockpot since I am cooking for two rather than a large group. I plan to use

I am going for an updated version of the recipe.

The crockpot brunswick stew on Recipezaar is the most promising find so far.

While I enjoy memphis style barbeque, this link has made me miss living in Smithfield, NC and eating at Smithfield's. I love their Brunswich stew, hushpuppies, and vinegar based barbeque sauce. Won't someone please send me some???? :-)
