My smoked nuts

  1. Well after reading several threads about smoking nuts, I had to give it a try.

    I basically use Deejay's recipe, I added a few things and subtracted some. (I didn't have walnuts or pecans)

    Any how Hope you enjoy my "Nuts"


    Hot And Spicy Smoked Cajun Nut Mix

    1/4 cup Butter
    1 teaspoon Salt
    1 teaspoon Paprika
    1 teaspoon Red cayenne pepper (or to taste) I used 2 teaspoons
    1 teaspoon Garlic powder
    1 teaspoon Black pepper
    1 teaspoon Onion powder
    1 teaspoon White pepper
    8 ounces Walnuts (no walnuts so I threw in a handful of cashews)
    8 ounces Pecans (no pecans either)
    4 ounces almonds, Whole( had about 22 oz)

    In a 3 quart sauce pan, over low heat, melt butter stir in paprika, garlic, and onion powders. Stir in black pepper, white pepper, salt and red pepper. Blend well. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts, pecans, and almonds. Mix well to coat. Spread nuts in a tin foil pan and smoke for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir nuts occasionally. Cook without smoke until nuts are golden brown. Remove from heat and cool. Before they cooled down, I put a bit of Turbinado sugar on them to tame the heat..just a tad..[​IMG]
