    Earlier in the week I smoked up my first try at peanuts. Although the recipes I used were good I just don't have any smoke flavor coming through in the peanuts. A couple questions...

    1. I used raw spanish peanuts that I ordered online. Should I have used just regular peanuts or mixed nuts from the store?

    2. The raw spanish peanuts were out of the shell but still had the skins on them. Should I have taken the skins off? It'd be one heck of a process I'd think.

    3. Should I have smoked them longer? I smoked them at around 230 for 1 hr.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I am wanting to try this out as well, so, with no experience I'm afraid all I can do is speculate.....but my GUESS is...one hour isn't quite enough.
    But I'm sure one of these people will help you out with some great advice,....they always do.

    What did you have the nuts sitting on?

    Tin pans. I'm thinking next time I'll try to find some type of wire mesh material to sit them in (what this might be, I have no idea)...
