What type of wood do you use?

I use cherry, apple, or pecan. Or a mix of all the above.

Made a batch of these over the weekend and they are awesome!  Definitely plan to make a few more batches and play with the recipe to try different flavors and heats.


My batch did come out a bit stickier that I would prefer.  I kept them around 230, spread them out on parchment paper to cool, and then put them into jars.  Problem is they are a real pain to get out of the jar.  I did have a water pan in for part of the time as I was also doing a few slabs of ribs, so I will definitely try again without the water next time.  Some friends suggested adding a coating, like a bit of corn starch or something similar, but I am concerned about altering the flavor.


Any other thoughts or suggestions on how to make them less sticky?

Grind up almonds or pecans or ?????? into a fine powder..... roll them in your "NEW" powder.....

Depends on how well you cook/smoke them. Also depends on the humidity. Usually they turn out not very sticky. Right out of the smoker they will clump together, but a day later they are pretty hard like peanut brittle.

Guess what folks... Years later this recipe is still on rockin'. I used some kroger brand chipotle hot sauce because that's what I had in the fridge. My son was a little heavy handed with the honey. Everything else tied to the recipe. As for the clumps I broke up the clumps right out of the smoker and broke up again a little later while still warm. Mine were not sticky at all. Smoked at 225 for 3 hours with Apple wood and water in the pan.

I also made a non spicy version which were not nearly as goodiscussed (lighter colored).

Edit: One thing I noticed with the 2 batches I made is that the one wok (spicy) was set at a slightly cooler temp and I stirred constantly. The other was a little higher and stirred less which had the hard clumps of brown sugar. Long story short, start lower temp, work the temp up if needed, and stir more.
