Want to feed 100 people? In the Redneck way?
Just take a simple metal garbage can, rig it up inside with the grill rack from your Weber, fill the bottom with water, load it up with delicious vegetables and meats and voila!
It's actually probably the most delicious meal I had all month. My baby nephew Skeeter graduated high school way up north in Cook, MN and here's the meal my sister and her husband prepared for the masses. I didn't get to see it from start to finish unfortunately, but I watched them empty the can. So here it is from the middle to the end, backwards:
|Garbage can, set up on some concrete blocks and a fire underneath. See where those bolts are on the side? That's where the grill rack sits, and that's about how much water to put in the bottom.|
|A close up of the fire.|
|Completely fill it up, and add a bunch of butter on top and a couple cans of beer. The butter will trickle down as it melts and eventually end up in the water and be part of the yummy yummy steam.|
|Let it cook over the flame for about an hour, then have two hefty men lift it off.|
OK so here's kind of how it was layered, in backwards order, since I only saw it coming out:
|Everything was added in order of how long it might take to cook, with the longest items near the bottom, and the quicker items near the top.|
|Removing more...to reveal potatoes.|
|And finally corn, husks on.|
|Keri and Kelly, fighting and racing as usual.|
|At the bottom is the water and the grill rack.|
|Can of melted butter to dip the shucked corn|
Ok so as far as I could tell, you add all your corn in the husks at the bottom, top with potatoes, then carrots, squash, onions, cabbage and brats. Add the butter and the beer. There's some turnips in there too but what the heck are they, even? Steam for an hour and then eat and fart for the rest of the night. Yah. That's right. Cabbage.
Other things you should probably do at these functions -- play some games...:
