    Mike that sounds really good! I cold smoke nuts..pecans and such, have not tried sunflower seeds though.
    When I roast sunflower seeds, I soak them in salt water overnight. Wonder if that would work before smoking.

    just my two cents,

    i would smoke with sweeter, milder smoke. fruit or nut wood.

    then after smoking, if they sre soggy or soft, i would bake or fry them crunchy again. good luck.

    i want to see and hear how they turn out.

    We soak pumkin seeds in salted water overnight and then spread out on a cookie sheet and bake for a half hour at 325, stirring them several times. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for sunflower seeds, they just will take longer at a lower temp. Heck, I might just have to go outside tonight to disembowel a pumpkin to try it myself!

  6. thanks guy's I appreciate the info. My camara doesn't work with my computer. the old camera that did work broke and when we bought a new one we found out our computer won't support the software. Not much of a computer guy. Up until last week I was buying my computer beers to turn it on. But I will let you know how things turn out
