    Nothing planned for this weekend smoke-wise, so I'm trying something I've wanted to try for some time now and that's Scarbelly's Spicy and Sweet Smoked Nuts.

    Following his recipe and procedure for the most part, I will list my ingredients as follows:

    2 TBS Margarine

    6 Cups Salted Roasted Peanuts
    1 Cup Brown Sugar
    1/3 Cup Frank's Red Hot (No Tapatio around these parts)
    1/4 Tsp Chipotle Powder

    Heated up the margarine til melted, added peanuts and tossed to coat, then added brown sugar, Frank's, and chipotle. Stirred around until brown sugar is melted and added the remaining ingredients:

    1 Tsp Dry Mustard
    1 Tsp Chili Powder
    1 1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
    1/4 Cup Honey

    Stirred this around for 10 mins or until thickened and added:

    1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika

    Gave them one last quick toss around and put peanuts into a foil pan I stabbed a few dozen times with a fork...Then into my preheated WSM for 4 hours @ 225F with some maple TBS already going nicely.

    Qview!




    More to come

    Not a bad idea! [​IMG]
    They tasted good after simmering...Real interested to see how much smoke they take on, should be a nice treat.

    These are great! Make several large batches using mixed nuts to give away at the holidays. Super addictive! Goes great with beer!
