Bo, i grew up in Ga but admit the Ga version is a transplant from Va. I also remember all the versions I had at home were sweeter and had a thicker tomato sauce.
My ex grew up in South Hill, Va. not too far from Brunswick. I got one of her mom's old recipes and have been using it for years. Best I've had. I'll dig it up and post it. Not too different from what you used, she always had country ribs and rabbit (fresh only, please) in hers.
Possum is another critter that was used, too.
