As fall starts each year, I usually try and make a big stew and today was the day. I boiled my chicken last night and removed all the bones and skin. I started with 20 pounds of leg quarters.

I started my potatoes over my kingsford and Hickory coal base


I added my carrots next


Threw in a few onions


Black pepper added to the onions to simmer a while


All the vegetables and chicken added in to simmer


After a couple hours of simmering on low heat and plenty of stirring about 15 gallons of the finished product.


We had lunch, fed the neighbors and a few relatives and have about 12 gallons to freeze for the winter.

Looks good! I like your setup. Did you, perhaps, forget to mention a couple of ingredients? Wink Laughing That looks a lot like my Brunswick stew recipe (I have tomato and cracklins in mine).

Thanks, bugs,cb and tony.
believe it or not, I don't have a recipe. I have made so many of these over the years that I just buy the ingredients and go to it.
5 lbs potatoes
6 large sweet onions
1 gallon of carrots
1 gallon black eyed peas
1 gallon of veg all
1 gallon and half of diced tomatoes
1 gallon whole kernel corn
1 gallon sweet peas
half gallon green beans
half gallon lima beans
20 pounds leg quarters boiled and shin and bones removed.
7 packs of beef stew seasoning

I add the harder vegetables first and bring them to boil to start softening and then add the veggies as I go. The beef stew seasoning and black pepper begins my flavor profile that I like and I usually add tomato paste(4 small cans today) and tomato sauce or ketchup to round out the flavor that Im looking for.
I usually use can vegetables because the cook a little faster but and were on sale last week for .39 cents per can.

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin bout! That looks like a good recipe, kinda like a Brunswick stew with carrots and beef flavoring. With fall here, and winter approaching, it's time for me to get my stew and soup pants on Laughing . That's the only good thing about cold weather, IMO. Beef Stew, Brunswick Stew, Chicken Soup, Split Pea Soup...With some nice hot fresh Sourdough bread from the oven, slathered in butter...Mmmm...They're the only things that keep me sane when it's colder than a witches tit in a brass bra outside Laughing Laughing

I'm not a big fan of cold weather. I much prefer hot and humid.

thanks bugs, I like the cooler weather a little better than the hot. I don't care for the ice and snow and don't like the frigid weather. We have fairly mild winters here in West Tennessee but we do have some fairly cold weather on occasion and when we do I will pull out some stew or soup or chili and make a pan of corn bread and some pimento cheese sammiches and that seems to take the chill out of the air.

Looks good brutus1964!

Have you considered making it with smoked / BBQ'ed chicken instead of boiled chicken?

Just a thought.

Now that sounds good! I also make big pots of soups and stews and freeze portions. Sure is nice to come home and have a nice steaming bowl of goodlyness in a few minutes.
