    Thinking of trying some smoked peanuts. My mom has given me her old recipe for her roasted nuts but they are sweet. I see a lot of people on here that are doing their smoked nuts with a spicy mix and not sweet. Has anybody tried a sweet mix for their nuts in the smoker?

    Sweet is good especially with walnuts.

    On almonds or pecans, I use Frank's red hot with a little molasses to bind with.

    The last ones I did were almonds. Gave them all a coat if honey, then put Salt Lick seasoning on some (spicy) and Plowbpys Yardbird on the rest (salty with just a little kick)
    Try a couple of flavors you think will go together - the nice thing about nuts is you can try a bunch and see which you like best - no huge investment.
