I'm not sure where the other burgoo recipe posted on JAP is from, but it's not burgoo. At least, it's not Kentucky Burgoo.

This recipe is from "The Cooking Book" by the Junior League of Louisville. It was submitted by Mrs. John Rodes. Her recipe originally served 50 (bet it was for a Derby Party). I've scaled this one down to serve about 12 people - still plenty for a crowd.

If you're not familiar with burgoo, it's similar to a Brunswick Stew but has a flavor all it's own. Burgoo is a dish usually served in western Kentucky (Owensboro, Paducah).
