I was smoking canadian bacon this last weekend and had some space in the smoker, so I looked up smoked almond recipes. I saw one that had me soak my almonds in water for 10 minutes, apply regular table salt and then 30 minutes of smoke. I was using oak pellets. Soaking the almonds helped the salt to stick and it ended up working pretty well. I did think the smokiness was lacking a bit, so I'll increase the smoke time next time. All in all, I liked it. Only took me two days to finish the almonds, they were pretty addictive.
