To increase recipe size, simply use math: A= First ingredient, B= Second Ingredient, C= Third ingredient, etc. Next you simply add an exponent to each letter to represent the increase, like A^2+B^2+C^2 to double the size, A^3+B^3+C^3 to triple the size, etc. This will allow you to make any size version of the original recipe. Hint: you can also make a smaller version by using fractions, for example 1/2A+1/2B+1/2C or 1/4A+1/4B+1/4C, etc.. Once you add up all of the parts you will have a copy of the original recipe in either a larger or smaller form for use on any size BBQ item. Keep in mind you portion sizes to ensure proper recipe change, tbsp versus tsp, etc., or your BBQ results may suffer and go up in smoke.
