Nut shells with meats still inside

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey there smokey buddies

I have used hickory nut shells with great sucess to smoke pork oh sweet pork. but the nut meat was kindly removed by the squirels.

Well, I have a mess of pecans that are whole. do you all think I could use them for smoke with the nut meats inside, or will the smoke be oily and akrid?

Thank you all
I promise to let my rub recipe out soon........promise!

I think your second call is prolly the most likely. I would shell them.

Yea, shell them. Why waste good pecans, even if it tasted fine to smoke with them whole.

Thanks folks,

I apreciate the feed back. The nuts are about 2 years old so the meats are stale. so I am waiting for a few more opinions on the oily smoke question then I will form my informed opinion from there a nd let y'all know what has come up.

I am away until Monday, I will post the rub recipe then.
It may be good or it may be rug sweepings.

shmoke on!

Hey Boy812, IMOP the shells will be O.K., but the meat will be useless. This is from experience in using year old ones from Mom's freezer.

Why not experiment do a smoke with and a smoke without and let us know what you experienced.

I have used whole pecans.....never as the only fuel, but a handful or so per smoke works well with both wood or charcoal.
