    Spicy Smoked Nuts

    Spicy Smoked Almonds - from Charcuterie by Michael Ruhlman & Brian Polcyn

    1lb raw almonds
    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp garlic pepper
    1 tbsp finely ground kosher salt or fine sea salt
    2 tsp chile powder
    1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

    the recipe reads:
    lay the almonds on rack & cold smoke for 2 to 3 hours
    preheat oven to 375
    combine oil and spices in a bowl & toss with almonds to coat , spread on baking sheet and roast for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring several times , remove from oven -taste, add more salt if needed
    can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks

    I tossed with the oil and spices right at the beginning, they are in the traeger on smoke, I"m going to leave them this way for an hour or two and then decide how to finish them off - either put up to 250 or crank up higher

    adding the oil and spices to the almonds

    I did two lbs of almonds and two lbs of pistachios (the pistachios were salted so I omitted the salt from the recipe). All racked up:

    in the traeger - I also added some garbanzos that I cooked up for hummus (no clue if this is a good thing but it seems like it should work unless it dries them up too much)
