    Well everyone keeps talking about them so I had to try them. Ive got a bunch of chicken and a 9# picnic still going, Just got the almonds out. Method:
    1. 1 bag of raw almonds
    2. Coated with Butter, Brown Sugar, Cracked Pepper, Ground Red Pepper, Honey, Cinnamon.
    3. Cracked sea salt while they were still hot, Coarse Grind
    I smoked them for 2 hours at 235 and then I took them out and stirred in with the sugar mixture. It had the texture of warm peanut butter.
    I put them back in the smoker for another hour..

    End Result: Really good, I like hot food so these were good to me but not for the kids. After they cooled they became real crunchy, sweet, and hot with a real good smoke taste but not overwhelming.....

    Raw and ready for the Smoke Wagon

    Those Look Great, Wish I Could Still Chew Almonds...[​IMG]
  5. I use a similar recipe, but with lots of Jack Daniels;-) Those look killer!

    I recently saw a site where someone was cold smoking almonds at 65 deg. Does cold smoking change the taste any? I hadn't thought of doing a cold smoke on nuts but am kind of intrigued. Sure works great for cheese and lox.

    Thanks for the idea! I am getting everything together for this weekends smoke and that would be a great addition! I am doing two butts and some sausages and what a great little treat to make after the butts are done and the sauasage go on!!

    Cold smoking works fine. Almonds are hard and don't take on much smoke, Cashews, Walnuts, and Pecans are softer and take the smoke more. Mix the 4 together for a great blend of mixed nuts.

    Thanks, SC. Looks great. Will make some for a pre-dinner snack Sunday. Might cut the heat a bit.
