    This thread is a place to record and discuss our (now traditional) Common-Pot meals at the gatherings. We try to have a big common fire on the last night and everyone brings something to add.

    I'll start with pictures from last year's showing, Spit-barbecued Squirrel.

    Soaked for 2 days in bourbon and slathered with BBQ sauce. It was good but difficult to get to cook consistently.

    I'll start the recipe. Others will have to add.

    Step 1:
    Start by boiling the available squirrels (minimum 1) in a medium sauce pan with half an onion, a clove kernel of garlic and a teaspoon of salt until done completely through. (Use enough water to completely cover the squirrels.)
    De-bone the squirrel meat and add back into the broth and set aside for later.

    Ok, @redneckron, @Stompy, @WhisperInThePine, and @NM_chile you guys take it from here since that ends my part.

    Cube potatoes, add a sweet potato for fun.
    Slice bell peppers, mushrooms, more garlic, and an entire kielbasa sausage. (Missing anything?)

    Boil the potatoes until mostly cooked. Then add the squirrel mix, and the veggies above.

    My contribution was a can of Amy's Organic Soups Southwestern Fire Roasted Veggie soup. This thickened the stew a bit

    Let the soup cook fully, then remove the lid to let it boil down.

    Serve when the consistency is how you wish it.

    I know I was really wanting some cornbread while eating this fantastic stew.

    Don’t forget, a half of a tub (pint?) of New Mexico Green Chile! That’s a crucial ingredient!

    2 bell peppers (Red and Yellow) and Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning. I think it was medium Hatch Green chili?

    Yeah we went with medium green hatch chiles. I knew I was forgetting something.

    Don't forget to scald somebody with the hot broth for the full experience.
