These are hands down my favorite summertime snack. The only problem is that they're so dang addictive! I boiled up about 5 lbs worth yesterday...not in my BGE, but instead in my turkey cooker (hence the Off Topic category). I got the salt to water ratio spot on.... I put almost 2 cups of Kosher Salt in the pot along with almost a half pot of water. I also added a little bit of boiling water a couple times into the cook to compensate for evaporation. Boiled them for about 4 hours and then let them rest in the salty water off the burner for a couple more hours. Turned out some of my best boiled peanuts to date. Can't wait to snack on these while I wait for my ribs to smoke up on the 4th of July. That is IF they make it 'til Thursday.
Had to take the cooker to my garage for the cook since it was pouring down outside.
I loooove the smell of boiled peanuts cooking away. Nothing like it.
I know some of you out there can't stand boiled peanuts, but this SC country boy likes 'em. Haters gonna hate and potatoes gonna po-tate.
