Home Cooking 10

15 gallon pot?

CasaCarloni | Dec 28, 201408:27 PM

So, this new year, I am cooking a classic Mexican dish, menudo. If you've ever had it it's a soup with beef tripe and harmony, in a chile broth. I plan on making 50 pounds, and cooking it in a 15 gallon pot. My father has made it several times before in the same pot but can not really tell me the cooking time. So my question to the cooking world...

When I made 10 lbs in. 24 qt pot it took 3 hours to cook. How long will it take 50 lbs to cook in a 15 gallon pot? ( btw, 24 qt equals 6 gallons).

Your advice is much appreciated!
