I have read several threads on here about smoking nuts. Decided to make a go for it today! Used this recipe from Scarbelly as a guide.
I used dry roasted peanuts and prepared them as follows.
2 TBS Margerine
5-6 cups peanuts
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Tabasco
1/4 Tsp Paprika (didn't have Chipotle Powder)
Heat margerine in skillet and add peanuts. Toss to coat. Add Brown Sugar, Tabasco and Paprika. Once sugar is melted, add remaining ingredients:
1 Tsp Dry Mustard
1 Tsp Chili Powder
1 1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tsp Cayanne Pepper
1/4 Cup Honey
I then simmered everything for about 10 minutes (stirring constantly) and spread them on racks. I made these racks today with $2.99 worth of screen from the hardware store and some scrap wood thanks to an idea I saw on the forums!
Into the Masterbuild Dual fuel with hickory chunks. I plan to leave them in for 3-4 hours. Will post results later tonight!
Ingredients ready for action.
In the skillet. Had to taste a few, had some heat with the Tabasco, but tasted good already!
On the racks, ready to go in the smoker.
Once I get this smoker set, it holds really well!
Now I have to wait and watch USA Soccer!!!!
Thanks for looking,
