Nokesville brunswick stew sale

Every year the Ruritan club of Nokesville VA puts on a brunswick stew cook and sale to raise money for the club's community service projects. It's an all-night cook, with sales starting at noon. Often these events coincide with the political season, and this year's was supposed to be a month ago, but something happened to the politicos' schedule and it was put off until today. I preordered a couple of quarts ($7 each) and brought them home. They had tables for bowl-customers, but it was chilly and breezy, so I didn't stick around to see if people raced to get their stew eaten before it got cold. (Reminds me of lunch on steel trays at the Fort Leonard Wood rifle range in subfreezing temps. )

When the weather gets cold me and this yankee pal I with nearly every day heads off to Red, White and Blues bbq joint. He always gets the chili with kidney beans and I get the Brunswick Stew. Taint too bad..tastes sorta like leftover bbq stew. I got quite a few recipes for the stuff if anybody want to make some themselves.

It was. Lots of pork, plus corn, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, limas, in approximate order of abundance.

(Larry, I was going to tell you about it and forgot. Sorry. This was an event I was tipped to by a riding friend who also does barbecue. He worked with the Dixie Bones team at Salisbury last Spring.)

Probably figured he could sell John some Wolfe Rub while he was there and break even at least.

I was gonna send you some for X-mas just to be nice but you seem to be the only person that can't seem to get it out of the bottle. Were you as dumbfounded the first time you saw fire??
