In a skillet, melt the butter with the pickling liquid, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauces, and salt. Stir in the pistachios and coat well.
Transfer the pistachios to a shallow, nonreactive, smokeproof dish or piece of heavy-duty foil molded into a small tray.
Place the nuts in the smoker and cook until dried and fairly crisp, about 50 to 60 minutes at a temperature of 225 degrees Farenheit to 250 degrees Farenheit.
Transfer the nuts to absorbent paper to cool. Serve them immediately or keep in covered jar for several days.
