Mamie's Brunswick Stew

Author Notes:

On my first visit to my late husband,'s home town, I fell in love with the Brunswick stew seved at his cousin's BBQ restaurant. Later, on a visit, his cousin Mamie gave me her home style recipe. It is the easiest way I know to feed a pretty large group with a minimum outlay and always garners compliments.
