Yup, that is a 40 quart pot. Since it takes an hour to steam/cook the tamales, I decided I did not want to do it in small batches. This should hold all the tamales we are going to make.
Since my BFF and myself are newbies at this, I decided it might be smart to get masa spreaders to help us get the masa onto the corn husks evenly. She and I are very excited to do this. She is making red chili pork and chicken. I am making green chili corn. I will let you know on Sunday how it went.
