Saving Nut Shells

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just thought of this, does anyone save the shells from various nuts for smoking wood? Seems like there might be some unknown flavors out there like chestnut, sunflower,........icon_idea.gif

There are several posts using Pistacchio nuts - the idea of using pecan shells or walnuts is very interesting

Never thought about that, I put all the shells from nuts crushed and into the compost pile, good for it.
Never put the nuts in the compost though.

I have used both pecan shells and whole hickory nuts for smoking. They work great just like the wood.

Anyone know of a place that would sell pecan shells by chance? i seen smokecage has them but no where else really.

Pistacchio shells

Here in NorCal, we have a lot of Pistacchio groves. Most of the shells are ground up as a supplement for bird food. I just bought 10# of pistacchio shells fro $12.40. Used abut 2.5# on the first smoke. They lasted for about 30 minutes of smoking. IMHO they are not worth the price or time.

Now that does sound alittle expensive to by them but if you eat the nuts I guess it wouldn't be that bad I guess.
