Personal Notes:
I am told this stew originated in Kentucky. Politician would have a "Stump Meeting" and voice their political views before an election. They served Burgoo which probably had venison and squirrel along with the fowl and pork. You will need a BIG soup pot. Freeze left-overs in family portions.You should get 8 to 10 meals from this one batch. You can also serve it over rice.
