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?
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.
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.
Servings 1 pound
- 1 pound nuts raw. I used a mix of peanuts, pecans, almonds and cashews
- 1/2 teaspoon powdered rosemary if unavailable, grind some dried rosemary with a mortar and pestle
- 3 teaspoons dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 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.
- Spread nuts out on a foil-lined baking sheet to cool and dry completely.
- Store in an airtight container.
