Well, you're lucky to have Milo's.  I've a been a fan since my first bite in 1983.  I'm pretty sure it contains Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and chili sauce and/or ketchup, but I'm clueless as to the rest of the ingredients.
 
I miss a lot of places in B'ham, many of them no longer in business.  I used to eat Camel Riders at Nabeel's when Nabeel actually owned it (nice man), and it was merely a food shop and deli.

Atoothaker :) I'm a Wiregrass native & my recipe for Earth Roastin Camp Stew is a very authentic and old recipe we use for earth hog roasts . It does call for English ( green peas ) . Camp stew & Brunswick Stew are different things in our area of Alabama :) :) :) Take care :)

MellowRoast,I'm so glad that I saw this thread...Camp stew is a little different from Brunswick Stew ,but not by much...Dothan , Alabama is 112 miles southeast from the Montgomery area...Here is our version of Camp Stew that is always served at "Earth Roasting Barbeques " , which is what we call a real old fashioned Southern pit barbeque "Pig Roast "...In fact , a group of my husbands collegues are having an Earth Roastin' with a whole hog this coming May 3rd...Here is the Camp Stew that the men make for this feast ! :

"SOUTHEAST ALABAMA EARTH ROASTIN' BBQ CAMP STEW "

5 chickens ( each 2 and a half pound average )
5 pounds beef chuck
5 pounds pork butt
Salt and Black Pepper To taste
1 gallon canned tomatoes
1 gallon english peas ( english peas are what we call green peas )
1 gallon butterbeans ( lima beans )
1 gallon whole kernel corn
10 pounds of potatoes , peeled and cubed
10 pounds onions , chopped
1 ( ten ounce ) bottle Worcestershire sauce
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes To Taste
Tabasco Sauce To Taste
1 gallon of catsup

Cook all the meat until it falls off the bones . Remove the bones,skin and fat.Skim as much fat as possible from the surface of the broth. Combine the meats and all the other ingredients except the Tabasco and catsup. Cook 6 to 8 hours over very low heat , stirring frequently. In the last hour of cooking, add the Tabasco and catsup . Simmer another hour and get ready to eat !

Serves 75 to 80 at a big Earth Roastin'

Iqdiva, Camp Stew must be very regionally influenced. The camp stew sold around central Alabama is primarily barbequed meat, tomatoes, corn and onions. I think the butterbeans, peas and potatoes threw Mellow Roast off from what is offered around the Montgomery area. Your recipe looks wonderful. I wish I had a pot big enough to make some;)

I lived in Wetumpka for 4 years, but visited family several times before. Our menfolk at Trinity Episcopal always did a big Boston Butt sale, then sold camp stew at Christmas on the Coosa with leftover butts. My stepdad is one of the cooks. I will contact him and try to get the recipe. I always loved Hog Rock BBQ's stew also!

I have been searching for days to find a recipe for camp stew without Ketchup..I highly recommend The Butt Hutt aka Bradshaw's Bbq on 231 between wetumpka and Montgomery any day over Fat Boys for the camp stew it is made to perfection and becomes highly addictive. If it has ketchup I would never want to know because I hate ketchup..LOL..Just ordered 4 quarts from the local -Volunteer F.D and hope it is very similar to B.Hutts..I am still searching for a recipe like the camp stew served around here (elmore co, montgomery co, even autauga co) please

atoothaker:  Thank you very much!  I can't get Castleberry products here, but perhaps I can substitute something else.  The owner of a local food truck was from Prattville and served up spectaular camp stew but sadly went out of business.  I wish I'd asked for the recipe.  

I enjoyed living in Montgomery from 77-79 and haven't forgotten some of those local delicacies.  


Be glad you can't get Castleberry products - it's like complaining because you can't catch the flu.
