    Well now that I have found smoking I can finally contribute to Thanksgiving. So what we have is 10 lbs of shoulder, a veni roast and smoked nuts. Right now I only have the 10 lbs of piggy ready to party.

    Jack I am using a masterbuilt 40" propane. My fault let other things distract me and I paid the price. Oldschool thanks my butts and nuts were a big hit.
    Tangy bbq:
    Soaked a pound of almonds in water for ten minutes.
    Drain with colander
    Mix in 2 1/2 tbsp of weber sweet and tangy bbq powder.
    Smoke I was at about 275 but spiked over 350. Sat in smoker with pecan and apple chips for an hour at a lower temp more time would have cooked the nuts better crisping up.
    Set to cool.

    Sugar cinnamon:
    All prep above.
    Mix a tsp of cinnamon with about a cup of brown sugar and coat nuts cook same as above.

    i used a foil cookie sheet poked with holes and sprayed with pam to stop sticking.
