    OK innuendo aside this was my first try at smoking nuts they are Awesome.  My wife is having her company Christmas party tomorrow so she asked me to make something that I thought everybody would like.  Vol-la!!

    I found a recipie online and modified it for the holidays...

    [font=Verdana, Arial]½ cup honey
    4 ½ TBS Brown sugar
    3 TBS melted butter
    1 TBS salt
    1 TSP tsp cayenne
    1 TBS ground cinnamon
    [/font]

    [font=Verdana, Arial]4 cups whole natural almonds
    2 cups pecan halves
    [/font]

    [font=Verdana, Arial]1 12 oz Can Salted Peanuts[/font]

    p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

    [font=Verdana, Arial]In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter and all the seasonings. Make sure that any lumps of cayenne or cinnamon are broken down and stirred into the mix. The end result is a thick, sticky seasoning mixture. Add nuts and stir thoroughly to coat.[/font]

    p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

    [font=Verdana, Arial]Smoke at 250°F for 45-90 minutes Depending on the amount of smoke you want in the flavor, shaking the pan 3-4 times during cooking to sort of stir things up. The seasoning mixture will melt and thicken as the nuts are smoked.[/font]

    I modified the times and ingrediants I smoked for 60 minutes using maple dust in my MES with the A-MAZE-N smoker.

    Thanks my other hobby is collecting Cigars and Cigar Lighters that is a propane lighter I picked up a long time ago just because it looked good.  I have lots of lighters but this one is one of my more dependable one.  Nothing like a good cigar and a fine Rum to compliment a great BBQ.

    hi

       my dad does wood turning, would this dust/shavings be alright

       in amazing smoker

       my idea is to use electric oven to get temp & use smoker.

       use old oven with stuffed hot plates & put chimney in

       any ideas criticism welcome

      thanks Daryl

    Daryl,
    Sawdust works best in the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER.

    If you're going to use an old oven with a hotplate, why not use a cast iron pan on top the hotplate and dump in some chips from your Dad?  You could also try making a "Foil Pouch", fill it with chips from your Dad and poke a few holes in it.

    Simple, cheap and very easy to do!!

    Shavings from turning would not work very good in AMNS, neither would shavings from a jointer.

    It should be small chips & dust, not fluffy shavings & curls.

    I'd be interested in what species or what flavor is the wood? Some may not be suitable for using for smoking...Vernski
