    made a batch of nuts on the new smoker,   i need a lot more practice on it as you'll see

    three batches

    one jamaican jerk cashews

    one sweet pecans

    one hot tabasco peanuts


    looks like the smoke is flowing just about right 


    everything in place ready for a couple hour smoke


    check out killer keeping the beach clear of the ducks


    went to check status and found the sweet pecans ruined i had them right by the firebox and ruined them

    The cashews look mighty tasty!  I love your back deck. I bet FL is pretty nice this time of year.  I smoked my first nut this past holiday also. I did a simple spicy almond. I used a little oil, garlic powder, cayan, chili powder, black pepper & super fine ground sea salt. I smoked them raw for 3 hours, then put the oil on & seasoning, baked it for 10-15 minutes in the oven at 350°.

    They came out great but the one thing I learned was after they are finished is let them sit and be somewhat gentle with them when storing because if you shake them or move them right after they are done, a lot of the seasoning falls off. 

    Thanks for the pics, I love the river in the background and I'm super jealous your grill/smoker is next to water....I think I'll take off the rest of the day now and find some water to fish.
