My husband was so excited to find this grill basket- Now it’s time to make Smoked Almonds


Applewood smoked almonds are one of my husband’s favorite snack foods.
Anything cooked over fire is guaranteed to make him happy.
Maybe it is that caveman instinct to preserve the kill.
Perhaps its just that smoking a piece of meat means he gets to putter around a fire for hours and hours.
No matter, whenever he smokes a pork butt, this is the final step.
Ed tends to use a combination of applewood and oak for his fires.  Feel free to mix it up with your available wood.

The Smoked Almonds recipe really couldn’t be easier but I’ll tell you anyway

    Ed had the smoker going for a pork butt. It was charcoal start with oak and apple chunks. It ran for 4 hours, then he put the almonds on. He oils the almonds with rice bran oil and adds a bit of his chili spice mixture. Lets them go for 30 minutes or so
