I want to smoke some almonds. Any ideas? SHould I start with roasted or raw almonds?


  • Animal Eater, Just a wild guess, I would think roasted would dry out pretty fast, just a thought! Let us know how they turn out, Good luck![p]Hugh, "Sitting on The Dock of The Woods"

    Animal Eater,
    I copied this from a recipe that Chuck posted last year. It's very good, but he's right - the line between smoked and burnt is very fine![p]BEGINNING OF QUOTE:
    I have smoked almonds several times with good results. I do them on a jerky screen, but any pan (preferably with holes) will work. I do them with an inverted plate setter at 250* for about an hour or so with a lot of smoke. [p]To prepare the nuts (use raw almonds) I mix a little oil and some soy sauce with them and let them sit for an hour or so. The you liberally sprinkle them with whatever seasoning floats your boat at the time. I have used onion and or garlic powder, just some salt and several rubs. I like a spicy rub on them and use Big Bubba's Rubba Chipotle rub (a great rub) the most. Then onto the screen and the egg.[p]Keep a pretty close eye on them. There is a fine line between nicely toasted and burnt. I guess I'll have to do some now, I can taste them with a nice
    cold beer.[p]Good luck.[p]Chuck <>< END OF QUOTE
