Anyone smoke nuts? (I know, they are hard to keep lit :oops:)
Almonds, pecans for example? What do you put on them? Method(s) used to smoke them?
Seems like good fodder for the Turbo.
Want to give them a try. Any info greatly appreciated!

I Love nuts! I'm actually doing more nuts this weekend. One weird thing about nuts is they taste awful hot! Let them cool down before eatting them.

Hot and Spicy Smoked Pecans

2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups pecan halves
1 tablespoon chili powder

Mix everything but the nuts and chilli powder in a bowl. When it's mixed well add nuts coating completely. Then add chilli powder. Put in tin foil pan and smoke for about 30 minutes. Stir them up every 10 minutes or so.

Glazed Spiced Smoked Nuts Recipe

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 unsalted butter
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (strained)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground mace
1 pound unsalted mixed nuts

Cook sugar, butter, orange juice, salt, cinnamon, cayenne and mace in heavy skillet over low heat until butter melts and sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium. Add nuts and toss until completely coated. Spread in single layer on a lightly pamed tin foil pan. Smoke 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. Then cook without smoke for another 30 minutes. Move nuts to sheet of tin foil to cool.

Alrighty! That's what I had in mind. I thought about cashews and sorta wrote them off as "different" if smoked, though I have never had any smoked.
Smoked chex mix looks interesting for sure.
Well, now I have to make a run to town and get supplies to work with.
THANKS Debi!

fI find it hard to keep them in cigarette paper.....keep rolling out
. Maybe I'll try a pipe!...For me, I use a blow torch to get em going (another groan.
)

Really though, I've done pecans before. Soaked 'em in salt water, put 'em on a cookie sheet, and into the smoker for a couple of hours.

Lotta pecans grown around here, they sell them along the road out of the back of a pickup. I will try them.
Used to get those great smoky almonds during flights, especially to DFW, have not had any in a long while. Lucky to get a pretzel.

Forget what I said......I meant pumpkin seeds were soaked in the salt H2O, not the pecan. The pecans went straight into the smoker.

I wish we grew pecan up here! I just paid $3.99 for a lbs of halves at the Job Lot today.

I also got some unsalted/undyed pistashio nuts if I get them all shelled I think I'll try doing something with them too. I'm thinking a salted cajun spice thing ...

Debi -
Amazing, Jane stopped at Sam's Club on her way home after work yesterday and scored a big ol bag of pistachios. I think a good portion will pass through the ECB. Never thought of smoking them, thanks! Wonder about smoking them "in the shell"?

Smoked - what forum is that? LMAO

I don't think much smoke would get in the shells - there hard enough just to peel off!
