Do I really need a 20 1/2 qt stockpot for this recipe???

I am contemplating making Martha Stewart's Pot au Feu. The recipe states that it serves 8 people and that it requires a 20 1/2 quart pot. I think there is something off here. It seems a like a lot of food and I don't know anyone who I could borrow such a large stockpot from. Also, not all of the ingredients are in the pot at once. Even the recipe is prefaced with the suggestion of removing the meat if it cooks sooner.

I am basically going to cobble together a few recipes to make my own invention, but this one has me very curious. So far I am inspired by Patricia Wells and Anthony Bourdain's version. I realize this is a peasant dish and not rocket science. I have also read these posts as a guide:
