Decided to try my hand at snacks today.
This is my 3rd cheese smoke since receiving my AMNS for Christmas. The first two smokes were 4 hrs, todays was about 2 1/2.
Wasnt' sure what I wanted to do with Pretzels so I made two batches.
1) Melted 1 stick of butter, added Wooshy sauce, Paprika, and Mediterranean Sea Salt. Stared on a cold smoke while the cheese finished for about 45 minutes then switched went up to about 200 when I added the second batch.
2) 1 stick butter, Wooshy sauce, brown sugar, Paprika, and a squirt of mustard. Smoked at 200.
The last round was raw almonds with some dry roasted peanuts tossed in.
1 Stick butter (yes, I used up some butter today), brown sugar, maple syrup, sea salt.
The pretzels came out pretty tasty, I prefer batch 2 but the lady of the house and the 9 yr old boy liked them both.
The nuts came out with a carmel consistency - taste great but not something you will walk around with. They will be fantastic chopped on ice cream or apple pie!
Todays smoke - Maple, Cherry, Hickory dust..
Finished product below. Seems a few of the sticks came up missing....
The nuts were great...they start off sweet and end with a nice smokey flavor.
