Hearty Southern "Smokey Bone's Brunswick Stew

Deborah Haviland


I love the Brunswick Stew I had at Smokey Bone's Restaurant here in Michigan. So I started playing around with the recipe"s I looked at to make this one my own and close to the one I fell in love with. It's so good, & freezes well for later.

How to Make Hearty Southern "Smokey Bone's Brunswick Stew


  1. Place diced onions & garlic in pan with olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter, soften onions to almost clear, put in dutch oven or slow cooker, add the rest of the ingrdients. Be sure to taste as you go. I used 2 Tbsp red pepper flakes but I like it alittle spicey. If using a slow cooker, place on high for 1 hr, then reduce to low for 4-6 hrs. If using a dutch oven, place on med high for 1 hr stirring often, then put on low for 3-4 hrs. This is an amazing southern tasty stew, great for gatherings.
