Smoked Nuts for Christmas Gifts

Here’s a quick treat that’s good for the holidays or just for snacking… Smoked Nuts I use pecans, almonds, or cashews for this recipe, it’s prepared on the smoker, and it makes a great gift too. Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 1 pound of nuts (Pecan halves, almonds or Cashews)
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Prepare the smoker for indirect cooking using a mild wood for smoke like apple or cherry.  The temperature needs to be around 300 degrees. In a small bowl melt the butter in the microwave for 1 minute.  Stir in the Worcestershire, Sugar, and remaining seasonings.  Mix well. Place the nuts in a mixing bowl and pour the mixture over.  Gently stir until they are coated evenly. Spread the nuts on a pizza pan or a small-mesh wire rack  in a single layer and place on the smoker.  Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.  Allow the nuts to cool after smoking and seal in a container for up to 3 weeks.

    Hi Malcom,

    Love your recipes!

    For the “Smoked Nuts” recipe do you use raw nuts or nuts that have already been roasted once?


  2. John Stevenson says:

    When you say “seal in a container for up to 3 weeks”, do you mean that’s how long the nuts will last, or wait until then to try them?

    I’ve tried this recipe a couple of times on my pellet grill and find that 300F is too hot. Within 30 minutes many of the nuts are burnt.
