Smoked Almonds

These smoked nuts are great for parties.  A couple of hours start to finish and you have a delicious smoky snack.

Smoked Almonds

  • 2 pounds plain almonds
  • 1/4C melted butter (give or take – I don’t measure)
  • 1/4C BBQ Rub (any store-bought rub, or make your own – see below)

Mix together almonds, melted butter and rub.  Use enough butter to coat the almonds.  Smoke at 230-250 degrees with hickory (or maple or oak or whatever you have) for 1-2 hours until nuts are roasted through.  I use a BBQ wok pan to hold the nuts while smoking and stir a few times. Sprinkle with kosher salt while still warm.  These nuts are great once cool, but are that much better while still hot!

Sweet With Heat BBQ Rub

  • 3/4C kosher Salt
  • 1/2C brown sugar
  • 1/2C paprika
  • 1/2C granulated garlic
  • 1/3C granulated onion
  • 1/2C chili powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons Chipotle Powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper, ground fine
  • 1 tablespoon coriander, ground fine
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed, ground fine

Mix all the ingredients together, getting out all the lumps.  Store in an airtight jar for a couple of months.  I use this for everything from pork, chicken and Alex’s favourite, sweet potato fries.
