I think GA PINE NEEDLE has a typo. It says 1 PBR
I hardly think that is enough maybe he meant to say 1 twelve pack?

I grew up in south-east Georgia, and boiled peanuts are one of my favorites. We had friends who were peanut farmers, and we'd get garbage bags full of them straight out of the ground.

We always boiled ours in a pressure cooker:

2 lb. raw peanuts
2/3 c. salt

Put 2 Pounds of raw peanuts in a pressure cooker and cover with water. Add Kosher salt and cook for 45 minutes at 10lbs of pressure. Cool and eat.

You can add some cayenne pepper, too.

I can't imagine what you would do with them in a smoker, though.

Being from Canada, the one time I had boiled peanuts. It was interesting. To me it tasted like beans, but sightly different.

Here is a recipe we use down here.

5 pounds raw peanuts, in shell
1 cup crawfish boil
Water to cover

Wash peanuts and put them in a pot. Add crawfish boil and water, bring to a boil.
Let the water boil for 3 hours.
Taste the peanuts, if they are not seasoned enough for your taste add more crawfish boil. If you would like the peanuts to be softer, return to a boil and cook until they are as soft as you like.

Hope Y'all enjoy!!!

I have found if you can't find "green" peanuts to boil find the unsalted raw in shell dried ones. Place them in a pot with water and put a plate or screen weighted down on top to hold them under the water. In 24 hours they will have soaked up enough water to boil as you would green ones. It may take an hour or so longer but will be just as good.

I like to add crab boil seasoning and about an hour before done some cayenne pepper. After boiling turn off heat and let soak for another hour. Warning: They're spicy!

Back in the 80’s there was an old man that sold them out of his truck across from the Shell refinery in LaPorte TX. They were still in the water and he would scoop them out hot and let them drain. A big bag and a cold six pack. Dame that was a good time.

Love me some "bawld" peanuts. I can get raw peanuts here in PA but I never made them. I used to live on the coast in NC and there was a guy that had a veggie stand. He always had a vat of boiled peanuts going. He actually threw fat back in with them when he cooked them. He'd go over and scoop them into a plastic bag then put that in a paper bag. They'd be half gone by the time you got home...I always put one end of the shell in my mouth, bit down a bit, sucked the juice out, then opened them and ate the nuts...one of my friends brought me back a couple of cans of boiled peanuts. I heated them in the microwave and they weren't too bad! People up here thought they were disgusting!!
