So, is it possible to throw a little cold smoke at roasted nuts? Was thinking I'd just spread them out on cookie sheets and let the amnps at them for a few hours with some pitmaster pellets. Thoughts?
The best ones to smoke are the ones that have not been roasted. Smoke them first and then roast them. Cashews work really well and here are some details I recently posted. I have several kilos of nuts smoking at the moment ready for Christmas.
If you also like your nuts salted you can simmer them gently in salted water for a few minutes, smoke them and then roast them in a moderate oven until they start to colour.
