    Dont know where my wife got this recipe at but she handed it to me.

    2 cups salted shelled pistachios

    1.5 tsp ground cumin

    1.5 Tbs chili powder (your choice)

    1 tsp ground coriander

    1 tsp paprika

    1 tsp brown sugar

    1/4 tsp garlic powder

    1.5 Tbs worcestshire

    1/2 tsp salt

    I added

    1 Tbs melted butter

    1/4 tsp cayenne


    Set the nuts and sauce aside.


    Mix all the dry together real good.


    Set aside.


    Now put the nuts in a larger container and add the sauce and melted butter.



    Coat the nuts really good and go pre heat your smoker @225* and your oven or bbq to 275*

    Now add the dry to the coated nuts.


    Use all the dry.


    I put a ham bag and frogmat on my rack.


    Now in the smoker. I only use 1 wood puck (20 mins)




    While in the smoker, Line a cookie sheet with parchment (for oven)


    Nuts from smoker, ready for the oven. 275* for 8 mins, toss nuts around on parchment at the 4 min mark.


    Now cool, place in air tight canister or zip lock (if they last that long)


    You can double, triple this recipe.

    Next time i will add.

    Another tsp brown sugar and cayenne.

    Gotta try those!  They look great!
  11. Where would I be able to come by a mesh rack like the one shown in your pictures?  I'd like to give nuts a try but the only thing I have like that is a sort of vegetable wok thing for my grill.  I think the mesh would work better.

    Think I am going to try these soon.

    I too would like to know where to get some of that wire mesh.
