Well I did my first batch of pistachios after seeing a lot of people on here talking about them. Here is what I did: I winged the measurements of the ingredients to taste but they included garlic salt, finely chopped and dried parsley, brown sugar, black pepper, onion powder sea salt, about 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and two cups of water. Melt the butter first in a pan, add the water and the rest of the ingredients. Take off the heat and soaked the nuts for about 30 minutes (just enough so they get soft inside). Then took what shells I had already soaked and wrapped them in foil and added to the smoker. Used some hickory and blasted the nuts with smoke for 2 hours at about 200 degrees. Halfway through I used a sifter and added a light coat of brown sugar, garlic salt and black pepper.
