Smoked Spicy Nuts

Nothing is easier than smoking nuts. I use my Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker, but you can also smoke them on your gas or charcoal grill using a couple of added wood chunks. Smoking nuts only takes 20-25 minutes. If you want your smoked spicy nuts extra smoky and extra spicy, add a bit of chipotle powder. You won’t be sorry!

Smoked Spicy NutsThis version of spicy nuts isn’t in-your-face spicy. There’s a nice subtle spiciness to them, along with that great smoke flavor. They make for the perfect party treat.

Also try my fantastic smoked rosemary nuts and my smoked southwestern nuts. And my smoked peanuts in the shell are amazing too!

  • 2 cups of raw nuts I used a mix of peanuts, pecans, almonds and cashews
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons Tabasco Green Jalapeno sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco Red Pepper sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard


  • Fire up your smoker for 325 F cooking over a mild wood (I used cherry). (If you are using a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker, do not add water to the water pan).
  • Place the nuts in a medium bowl.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in another bowl and pour over the nuts. Toss to coat completely.
  • Pour nuts into a disposable aluminum foil half sheet pan or pie pan.
  • Place onto smoker (top rack if using a Weber Smoky Mountain) and smoke for 20-25 minutes, stirring once.
  • Let cool before serving. Store in an airtight container.
