  1. First attempt at smoking nuts

    1lb pecans 12oz of almonds
    half of each I soaked in a brine solution of 3/4 cups of salt and 4 cups of water for 2 hours

    Both batches I coated in egg whites then coated them in this mix

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1/8 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp cayenne
    1 tbsp of butter
    (Borrowed and modified from  Thanks Dionysus)

    150 F for 3 hours
    2/3 Hickory 1/3 apple
    Filled the smoke box approximately ever 1/2 hour for the first 2 hours

    Last hour raised the temp to around 200

    The batch that I soak in brine came out a little more chewy but other than that they came out good.

    Left brine right with out

    Left brine right with out, front with popcorn salt back with out

    Next time I think I will just try with out brine and a larger batch
  2. looks great.

    Happy smoken.

  3. I do love this forum!  Never thought about smoking nuts but now I have yet another future plan for some smoked almonds!
