I had a sinus infection, on and off for almost my entire 15 years I loved in AZ. This kinda killed off my taste buds. While I can taste the smoke flavor I can't taste the difference between one smoke flavor and another.
Smoked Pecans....hmmm....the wife really loves Almonds. Perhaps I need to do some reading on smoking nuts...and thanks for the idea....a friend complimented me on my BBQ sauce...I know what I will be giving him for Christmas
I'm not a big fan of smoked almonds (the only smoked nut I'd had before I came here) but my uncle has a pecan grove so I always have pecans around. I had about five pounds that had been in the freezer a couple years so I figured they were something easy to throw in with a batch of cheese one day and if they were nasty then they could be tossed anyway. They're delicious.
I smoke cheese with a mix of pecan, hickory, and apple so that's what I smoked the pecans with too. Guess I need to branch out and see what different smoke does to them.
It's gotten to the point now that I have to keep some around because my wife puts them instead of unsmoked pecans in Chex mix.
