I have done smoked almonds (and sunflower seeds) a number of times now and they come out great. I have been taking them to get togethers at friends houses and they love them. I have generally just been using a basic bbq spice rub to coat them and smoking them with hickory or a hickory mesquite combo. Does anyone have any other good flavor ideas that would go good with almonds other than sweet? I am looking for an interesting flavor\wood combo to experiment with.
