Roasting pumpkin seeds in the egg
Anybody ever roast pumpkin seeds in their egg?? I was thinking of trying it with maybe some apple smoke indirect on a cookie sheet. Any ideas??
BBQ Bob Trudnak
I roast pumpkin seeds in my large every Fall and I will recommend very little or no smoke. If you must, maybe a couple chips of apple. I roast them at 350 with spray olive oil and sea salt on a pizza pan with holes in it. I think it is an Air Bake.[p]
Sprinkle with Dizzy Pig and roast as you normally would, but don't use extra smoke.[p]They will go quickly,

I did a bit more searching and revised the recipe as follows:Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Don't throw out the seeds when making Jack-O-Lanterns or cooking fresh pumpkins, they make great snacks that are rich in fiber as well as vitamins B and E. Kids especially love them. Purists will want only salt as a seasoning, but if you're feeling adventurous, experiment and have fun with seasoning blends.
1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
2 tsp melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
salt to taste
Options To Taste:
Cajun seasoning blend
1 Rinse pumpkin seeds. Use your fingers to remove all the pulp. Drain pumpkin seeds and discard pulp. Spread out on paper towels to dry overnight.
2 While it's O.K. to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor), clean off any major chunks.
3 Preheat BGE to 300° F and set up for an indirect cook.
1 Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the melted butter or oil and seasonings of your choice.
2 Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer in an aluminum pan lined with non-stick foil (unless you don't mind the cleanup).
3 Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
4 Cool pumpkin seeds before eating. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 months or refrigerate up to 1 year.
1 If you like your toasted pumpkin seeds extra-salty, soak overnight in a solution of 1/4 cup salt to 2 cups of water. Dry an additional day, then proceed as above.
2 Pumpkin seeds are also known as pepitas.
