OK innuendo aside this was my first try at smoking nuts they are Awesome.  My wife is having her company Christmas party tomorrow so she asked me to make something that I thought everybody would like.  Vol-la!!

I found a recipie online and modified it for the holidays...

½ cup honey
4 ½ TBS Brown sugar
3 TBS melted butter
1 TBS salt
1 TSP tsp cayenne
1 TBS ground cinnamon

4 cups whole natural almonds
2 cups pecan halves

1 12 oz Can Salted Peanuts

In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter and all the seasonings. Make sure that any lumps of cayenne or cinnamon are broken down and stirred into the mix. The end result is a thick, sticky seasoning mixture. Add nuts and stir thoroughly to coat.

Smoke at 250°F for 45-90 minutes Depending on the amount of smoke you want in the flavor, shaking the pan 3-4 times during cooking to sort of stir things up. The seasoning mixture will melt and thicken as the nuts are smoked.

I modified the times and ingrediants I smoked for 60 minutes using maple dust in my MES with the A-MAZE-N smoker.

Thanks my other hobby is collecting Cigars and Cigar Lighters that is a propane lighter I picked up a long time ago just because it looked good.  I have lots of lighters but this one is one of my more dependable one.  Nothing like a good cigar and a fine Rum to compliment a great BBQ.

Daryl,
Sawdust works best in the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER.

 

If you're going to use an old oven with a hotplate, why not use a cast iron pan on top the hotplate and dump in some chips from your Dad?  You could also try making a "Foil Pouch", fill it with chips from your Dad and poke a few holes in it.

 

Simple, cheap and very easy to do!!

Shavings from turning would not work very good in AMNS, neither would shavings from a jointer.

It should be small chips & dust, not fluffy shavings & curls.

I'd be interested in what species or what flavor is the wood? Some may not be suitable for using for smoking...Vernski
