Smoked Southwestern Nuts

Nothing is easier than smoking nuts. I use my Weber Smoky 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. The smoke adds such a wonderful flavor to the nuts that you’ll want to make a big batch. For a bit more smokiness I add chipotle powder to these smoked southwestern nuts. It also adds a little bit of heat.

These smoked southwestern nuts have a fantastic light southwestern flavor with just a little kick. Need more kick? Make my spicy smoked nuts.

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 Nuts

This 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!

Smoked Rosemary 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 raw nuts only takes 20-25 minutes, so why not make a batch or smoked rosemary today for the big game?

Smoked Rosemary Nuts

These smoked rosemary nuts have a fantastic light rosemary taste (and aroma). They are a wonderful variation on your ‘usual’ smoked hot nuts. Also try my spicy smoked nuts. They have a bit more kick than these rosemary-infused nuts.

If you’d rather order some crazy good nuts, head over to The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg.
