Searching for Sonker and/or 'Genuine' Brunswick Stew
On my recent query (Triangle) a response asked what I was looking for – here are a couple of requests! My routing is scheduled to be (roughly) Charlotte – Triangle - Winston-Salem – Charlotte, but references elsewhere may help any other future searchers.
Is there anywhere that I might find ‘genuine’ Brunswick Stew (i.e squirrel, not chicken). Is this even legal currently?
I’ve never tried a Sonker (only found multiple references on how to bake one). I know of the festival in Mt Airy – except nothing in Mt Airy (that I’ve found) offers Sonkers at other times of the year. I’d settle for any version, but the prize would be a sweet potato Sonker.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
It's legal to hunt squirrels, but I have never seen Brunswick stew made with game meat on a restaurant menu. Knightdale Seafood and Barbecue(on the east side of Raleigh) used to have a wild game night once a week; that may be your best bet. But I wouldn't count on it.
legal squirrel meat...u kid right? the best way to get good brunswick stew is to find a family reunion in the country. if u dont see a black kettle dont stop.
the more likely alternative is a bbq restaurant. i think lil richards in winston has it but I've never ordered it
