On the coast of the Carolinas and Georgia, the favorite soup would be Oyster Stew or She-Crab Soup. Further inland the hands down winner is Brunswick Stew.

The original recipes for Brunswick Stew would have included squirrel, rabbit, and maybe possum (and would feed 250), but I don’t hunt, so….

Here is my recipe:  Brunswick Stew- Liquid BBQ!
