Yeah, Brunswick is like chili, there are hundreds of versions, some that don't even taste remotely similar. There is a pretty big difference between the style of Brunswick that is served in most Southern homes compared to the variety you will get at most BBQ restaurants in the South.
The version I've styled mine after is the BBQ restaurant version, which you won't find in many recipe books. In this version, the smoked meat is the star, with the rest of the ingredients just adding some background flavor.
It seems simple, but the complexity comes from having good smoked meat to base the dish around.
