Brunswick Stew: An Easy Camp Recipe for Your Autumn Vacation

Fall is almost upon us, and there’s nothing like an autumn camping trip to enjoy those remaining days with sunny, clear afternoons and chilly nights. The last thing you want is to spend too much time on meal preparation or too much money on eating out, so having some quick, easy camp recipe meals ready to throw together is just what you need in order to make the most of that dwindling daylight. So throw on a flannel shirt, throw a few ingredients in a pot, and go take a hike. Enjoy the outdoors! When you return at the end of the day to your new or used RV from A&S RV Center, supper is ready to dish up, take the chill off, and warm you up from the inside out. Best of all, it’s a one-pot stew, so dirty dishes are kept to a minimum and clean-up is easy!
