Need a recipe for Jambalaya - for large group?

I am in need of instructions to cook Jambalaya for 60-80 people. We are having a large crawfish boil and the person that was going to cook the jambalaya can no longer attend. We would like to use a 60/80 qt stock pot.

I have some good recipes - just have never cooked this in a stock pot - like the tailgaters...for this many people.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated
