Smoked almonds with Bacon Fat = A+

So I smoked some almonds for about 6 hours ( Hickory)  and then vac-sealed them for 7 days  and then roasted them, after that I used Meatheads Memphis dust rub and bacon fat .

I feel like a champion !!  They are so delicious

    Or the most unhealthy thing all week!  But I may have to try it also.  Did you soak the almonds in water before smoking them?

    Bacon fat or bacon grease. Not raw bacon?
