Smoked Pecans and Almonds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

First attempt at smoking nuts

 

1lb pecans 12oz of almonds
half of each I soaked in a brine solution of 3/4 cups of salt and 4 cups of water for 2 hours

Both batches I coated in egg whites then coated them in this mix

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp of butter
(Borrowed and modified from http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/55449/smoked-almonds  Thanks Dionysus)

150 F for 3 hours
2/3 Hickory 1/3 apple
Filled the smoke box approximately ever 1/2 hour for the first 2 hours

Last hour raised the temp to around 200

 

The batch that I soak in brine came out a little more chewy but other than that they came out good.

Left brine right with out

Left brine right with out, front with popcorn salt back with out

 

Next time I think I will just try with out brine and a larger batch
