Smoked Almonds

3lbs raw almonds tossed in some butter, ground red pepper flakes, Cajun Seasoning, and granulated garlic. Then on the WSM running at 275*F for 2.5 hours.


Off the WSM and seasoned with some more Cajun Seasoning and granulate garlic. Sending these to my Dad for Christmas


Tossed on some chicken thighs and andouille sausage for some gumbo I plan on making tomorrow.

With the almonds...does the butter hold the spices on, even after they have cooled? I have tried many ways, and the spices always end up on the plate or in the bag, and the almonds just taste toasted like I could do without adding anything, and I could do it in the <GASP> OVEN.

It seems to help keep the spices on until the oil from the almonds come out. They still need to be hit again with spices after they come off the smoker.
