  1. These are a little work but well worth the effort. I modified a recipe I found on SMF and these were completely gone at the end of the cocktail hour we had in the neighborhood last nite

    Here is the recipe
    Spiced Nuts Modified

    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
    Add
    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 they are waiting to cool and firm up
