I made some smoked pretzels.
First I would like to say Thank You to Driedstick
for the original recipe, and even the thought of
C'mon that's nuts, no it ain't.
Try them, they're great for beer drinkin' snacks.
1/4 cup olive oil (called for 3/4 cup)
1 package dry Italian dressing (zesty for a little more spice)
1 package dry ranch dressing
1&1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1&1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
1 pound small pretzels
Tapatio sauce to taste (called for 1&1/2 tsp. Cayenne)
I don't care that much for the Tapatio, I will try Franks next time.
Mix all but the hot sauce well in a large dish
put in pretzels and mix well.
Taste them and add hot sauce as desired a little at a time
mix well and taste again.
Wait just a few seconds from when you taste to when you
put on more hot, it will creep up on you.
I gave 'em four hours with Hickory at 170F
The spices and flavors
almost ready to go
We need some smoke
Going good now
All ready for a nice smoky rest
Got the smoke working
Four hours later, wake up little pretzels
Back inside ready to be bagged up
Beer drinkin' snacks
Thanks for taking your time to look
