Gary are you cold smoking them ?

I've always use raw nuts and hot smoked them,  but cold smoking already cooked nut sounds easier to me

No Dan - I run the smoker at 225 and smoke until they reach this color. Usually 2 - 21/2 hours

Know this is an old thread, but, I want to give this a go.  How much chipolte and garlic is used.  I just got some chipolte powder and it's killer.  I don't want to burn anyone's mouth :)  If anyone who's done these can post quantities used, I thank you.

The ratio is 2/3 to 1/3, I think the first time I made them I used 2 Tbs chipolte & 1 Tbs garlic with some oil & half a container of mixed nuts (why I didn't do the whole thing I still don't know). The will get destroyed especially with cold beer on hand.

Thanks, Murray.  I just got some chipotle powder that is really hot and was worried it might be too overpowering.  Don't want to burn anyone's mouth :).

Just make sure you have enough beer

Oh man, I made a batch of the garlic chipotle. So good, they did not last amongst the boys at work.

I also had some cinnamon/sugar laying around. The wife had mixed that, so I'm not sure what the ratio was o cinnamon to sugar. But they were delicious as well.

No photos this time around, but they looked pretty much just like the original post.

Thanks for the recipe, definitely going to keep a stash of these on hand at all times.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. I just found this, and the smoker is up and running right now with my first batch.

I can't wait.

Update:

 

I've now made two batches of smoked nuts using Scarbelly's fine recipe and instructions.

 

The first batch I made, I bought a container of very similar mixed nuts to the ones he posted, only since we don't have a Costco here, I got mine at the local Sam's club.  They're just about the identical kind, only Planter's brand.  As with his, they're already roasted and salted.

 

They came out fantastic!  But I thought my wife would think they were too smoky. She often prefers a lighter smoke flavor than I go for.  But she went nuts for them.  ;)

 

In fact, she found them the next day while I was at work, and sent me a text saying how wonderful they were.

 

Based on that success, I bought another batch of those same nuts, and also did a batch of walnuts and a batch of pecans.  Those, too, all came out great.

 

Both the pecans and the walnuts were raw (not roasted or salted), so they also needed a bit of salt in the seasoning mix.  The pecans are my favorite!  The "roasting" they got in the process was, to me, just perfect.  They are a bit crunchier than raw nuts, but not overdone, and they have an almost sweet flavor even though no sugar was used at all.

 

So thanks again, to all who have contributed to this thread.  These smoked nuts have become a favorite around my house.
