However, we used 2 of Camp Chefs 42 quart aluminum stock pots to do our beans on their new wider 3 burner Explorer stove -- very nice ! Used a 16 inch Camp Chef Dutch oven in between those 2 pots to fry up our 15 lbs of bacon that would go into the beans, along with diced green chilies, diced onions, etc.
