TRASH CAN DINNER (A Meal For Groups, Large Or Small)
2 carrots per person
1 red potato per person
1 ear of corn per person
1 head of cabbage per each 6
1 onion per each 6 people
6 kielbasa sausages or ham
hock per each 6 people
In a 30 gallon galvanized trash can (clean or new), you
place 12 water-filled 12 ounce soda cans in the bottom, and
cover with a metal mesh screen. Layer the vegetables and meat
on top of the screen. Put the lid on tightly and set trash can
over hot charcoal. You can use soda cans to prop up the trash
can. Let steam over the hot coals for about 1 to 2 hours.
This meal will feed as many persons as required, up to
about 120. The more in the can, the longer it takes to cook,
but it is almost impossible to overcook it. This is a recipe from our database at Cookbooks On/Line!
Accuracy is believed to be good, but is not guaranteed.
