How long before the can be eaten

  1. I am going to smoke some nuts for Christmas. How long should I wait after smoking before eating?. Are they like cheese and need to rest before eating? This is my first time doing the nuts. I don't want to serve something that my guests won't like.

    Thanks Charlie 
  2. What type of nuts? I find whatever type I have smoked (cashews, pecan halves, peanuts) letting them cool before eating is important for the sake of taste. Case in point, I tried a pecan right after smoking for 1 hour at 200 degrees. Little to no smoke flavor. I let them sit for an hour and a half and they had a nice smoke flavor.

    I too can attest to some resting time before serving. I smoked some for Thanksgiving and the night I did them the flavor was lacking served them the next day and a whole load of taste.
  4. I give them at least a 2 week rest.

    Happy smoken.

  5. I'm going to do almonds, pecans and cashews. I'm going to smoke them tomorrow and serve them on Christmas for snacks. Should I vac. seal them until I use them? 

    Thanks again for the help

  6. I do a lot of vacuum sealing. However I have a chamber machine. For the price of the bags I would just zipLock.

    Happy smoken.

  7. Or you could use some mason jars...

    Two WEEKS? I wish I had the patience and the lack of appetite :) Maybe I'll give that a shot though if it really makes a difference.
