jambalaya recipe needed

Reply
Got a new 10 gallon jambalaya pot for christmas. wondering if anyone has a good recipe for a pot this size or even a 5 gallon recipe would be awesome too. Im pretty good at making my own recipes and spice blends but what really has me stumped is the amount of water and rice. I usually do 2 to 1 for rice and water but with a pot this size Im not sure if that ratio will come out good or if I will end up with mush or shotgun load material. any help fellas?

The 2:1 ratio is what I use and it comes out good

12 lbs rice and 36 lbs meat. I use Pork, Chicken, and sausage. You can add a little more rice but more than a couple lbs will raise the lid. Season as you would a smaller Jambalaya. 1.5 to 1 or 1 gallon water for every 5 lbs of rice.

18 lbs Pork
10 lbs Chicken (boneless-skinless thighs)
8 lbs Sausage

45 Lbs of meat ( 15 each of pork-chicken-sausage) or 15 lbs or sausage and 30 lbs of chicken. Along with that I use 10-12 lbs of chopped vigitables and 18 lbs of rice. Bring your water level in your pot up to the point that it is an index finger from the top. All kinda playing that you can do with the recipe. You can add green onion top at the end or some rotel.... This recipe will give you 100 servings of meaty jambalaya and not a lil meat with ya rice.

For a 10 gallon pot, the pot will hold 15 lbs of rice but I find it is too much. I use 12 lbs, it just makes it easier to handle. As for as meat, I use 10 lbs chiken thighs, 10 lbs port and 8 lbs sausage. Rule of thumb - for every pound of rice I use a pound of onions, brown them good as that is where your color comes from. I like to add bell peppers, celery and garlic as well. As for how much water or stock, I use 2-1, some use 1 1/2 to 1. The only difference is knowing when you put the lid on.
