Smoked Spicy Mixed Nuts

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Wanted to get some good spicy mixed nuts done for Christmas Day
Used a modified version of Geek with Fire's recipe
2 TBS Warmed Bacon Fat ( we keep a container in Fridge for gravies etc)
40 oz Mixed Nuts
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Tapatio
1/4 Tsp Chipotle Powder
Heat the fat in a Wok add Nuts to coat then add the remaining ingredients until sugar melts and nuts are well coated
1 Tsp Dry Mustard
1 Tsp Chili Powder
1 1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tsp Cayanne Pepper
1/4 Cup Honey

Stir together and simmer over med low heat for 20 minutes stirring regularly. Do Not Walk Away - This will burn in a heartbeat
Remove to pan with holes to allow smoke to penetrate and smoke for about 4 hours

Here is the Wok prep

Here they are loaded into the pan with holes

After 4 hours in the smoker

These are a little sticky yet but very tasty

So on day two they actually have a good smoke flavor - they did not have much yesterday coming off the smoker - nice and not too spicy, will add more heat next time

If you like spicy, add a little more chipotle or chili powder - I know I will next time - these were tasty and got better after a few days

Hope you like them as much as we did. If you like heat add a little more of the red pepper flakes and chipotle - I will for sure next time as I am a chili head

Are the 40 oz. of mixed nuts already roasted or are they unroasted nuts?

Thanks, John

I use the extra fancy Mixed Nuts from Costco which are roasted.

OK, I loved these the first time so I made another batch today-less sugar and a lil less heat-before they hit the smoker I added white choc. chips to the top. we shall see in a couple hours.
