I'm using the featured products tutorial here magento site but I'm finding that no matter how many items I add to my custom category, I'm limited to five items on the featured products block.

I've read around, I know this is due to a constant in the code block that generates the list, but I'm not sure how to find the generating code block.

I'm guessing the clue is in the line

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="2" template="catalog/product/featured.phtml"}}

and that the type="catalog/product_list" is the giveaway.

Question is, how do I know where this code is...

You can add "column_count" to use product limit

{{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="5" category_id="3" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

A block of type catalog/product_list you look for in app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/List.php. Of course blocks like models van be rewritten. To check that the easiest is to use n98-magerun,using n98-magerun.phar dev:module:rewrite:list |grep catalog/product_list.
