Ok, so I bought an a-maze'n smoker an absolutely love it. This past Saturday night I threw in some nuts and cheese and let them go about 4 hours. I really liked the cheese and the nuts were good but I'm wondering if they can be better. I used pre-salted/roasted nuts from the store. I bought a big flat stainless steel colander/strainer (one made to fit into your sink) to put the nuts into when in the smoker. I stirred the nuts every 4 hours. Guess I should say that these were spanish nuts too, the kind with the red skins still hanging on most of them. It seems to me that the smoke flavor is more like sitting on the nuts or on the red skins more than actually penetrating the nuts. Did I do something wrong or is this what is to be expected? I also did a bag of mixed nuts and they tasted the same. Thanks for the help.
