Personal Notes:
Brunswick Stew is a customary feature of Georgia fund-raisers, political rallies, and family reunions.
A typical Georgia barbecue menu includes pork barbecue, Brunswick stew, cole slaw, Golden Flake Potato Chips, and Coca-Cola or sweet tea.

In Brunswick, Georgia, a plaque on a big cauldron pot states that the first Brunswick stew was cooked in it on July 2, 1898, on nearby St. Simons Island.

A competing story, however, claims that the dish originated in Brunswick County, Virginia. According to one legend, the camp chef of a Virginia state legislator invented the recipe in 1828 on a hunting expedition and everyone was immediately hooked.

Traditionally, Brunswick Stew is cooked in large iron pots over open flame or gas. Unlike soup, the stew is usually allowed to simmer and cook for long periods of time. This may be attributed to the older tradition of putting wild meats into the stew, which might require longer cooking times to assure it was tender.
