About two dozen charcoal briquettes, started earlier until covered with white ash, with a dozen below and a dozen on top of the Dutch oven should bear sufficient heat. If dried beans are used, many more will be needed over the hours, as the original briquettes are exhausted.
Crowder peas or black-eyed peas may also be used.
If dried beans are used, add 12 cups of soaked beans to cooked bacon, hamburger, and onions, add the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, molasses, and Worcestershire sauce, add enough water to make a thick soup and cook until beans are soft-maybe 6 to 8 hours, longer at higher altitudes.
Avoid eating this for too many consecutive days or your camp mates will move your campsite downwind.
