* Create a skift of the red sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish

Uh, so you cook the onions on high for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat and cook them for 6 hours? Something is missing here.

Looks like a lot. How many does that recipe feed?

depends on how plump you make your pan
we started with a 9x14, then made a second pan perhaps half that size as well
it's a pretty big recipe but if you wanted to make first pan extremely plump you could get by with just that one

Ok, but how many people wiill it feed? How many servings did you get out of the batch the way you made it?
Also, read your blog on the Texas A & M BBQ Class. Can you take that online??

Depends on how big you want your serving to be. I cut the big pan into 8 pieces, the small one into 6. If I was feeding a group of dockhands I would have cut the big casserole into 6 pieces and the small one into 4.
