Probably used to always contain squirrels because
they were abundant and challenging to shoot.
Maybe even flying squirrels.
This is probably the best titled blog on the subject:

where Tim Carman comments
"The fact is, many commercial Brunswick stews are dishes of necessity.
Just ask Bubba’s owner Mo Khalili, who developed his recipe at a
barbecue joint in Tennessee in 1971. “What we used to do every
Thursday, we used to clean out the walk-in,” he recalls. “All the
leftovers were put in the Brunswick stew there....What was leftover in
the kitchen, you can’t throw it away, because that’s profit.”"
