I just came across this and thought I'd share it. This is the official burgoo recipe of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, first published in 1946 and used since 1934 at official Colonels events.
2 lb. each ground veal, lamb, pork and beef
1 whole chicken
5 lb. veal bones (optional)
1 can tomato paste
1 no. 2 can of each: tomato puree, whole tomatoes, corn and peas
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 pounds each butter beans, chopped onion, and diced potatoes
1 whole lemon
1 whole orange
salt, cayenne, pepper, worchestershire sauce, and sherry, to taste
Add to 3-4 gallons chicken broth or water. Cook in an iron kettle over an open fire for 24 hours, occasionally stirring. Makes 5 gallons.
