Beat the cold and feed the soul. The BBQ Pit Boys cook up an Old School 1800’s New England Fish Stew with nothing but Cod, Salt Pork and Onions.


  • Cod Fillets – 2 ½ pounds or 4 fillets

  • Onion – 3 large sliced
  • SPG – to taste
  • Water – 1 quart
  • Flour – 1-2 Tablespoons
  • Oyster Crackers – 2 cups


1. Bring grill temperature up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Cut each cod fillet into 3 or 4 pieces. 3. Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil to cook lobster. 4. Slice onions into ¼ inch rings.

Continue to layer in that order until all ingredients are in the pot. 6. Mix water and flour in a separate container. Mix well. 7. Pour mixture into pan. 8. In stock pot, place lobsters to cook using your favorite method/style. 9. Cook soup for about 45 minutes at a low simmer. 10. After 35 minutes add in oyster crackers and stir. 11. Cook for another 10 minutes.


1. Remove lobster from stock pot when they are done. 2. Ladle soup into large bowls.
