Smoked Almonds - recommendations?

I seem to recall that this has been discussed at one time or another - but does anyone have any good recipes or procedures for smoking almonds (or other nuts) on the Egg. I do have a couple of recipes from the VirtualWeberBullet site, but was curious about Egg experiences.

    Janet,[p]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 <><

    Chuck,[p]Where do you find Big Bubba's Rubba Chipotle Rub?
    I'm a big fan of chipotle but I'd buy it just for the name.
    Thanks, and thanks for the above recipe.[p]WD

    WooDoggies,[p]I buy it at my BGE dealer, Stoveworks in Medford, NJ. The link is for a place to order it online. Big Bubba has a couple of other good rubs also but this is my favorite (and I hate the Morroccan Mud Rub). [p]Have a great day[p]Chuck <><
