Mixed nuts!
« on: December 18, 2014, 05:24:23 pm »
First time trying nuts. Found raw cashews, peanuts, almonds, and pecans. Soaked them for 10 mins. Smoking with Apple cuz I forgot to get more mesquite, then I'm going to salt and hit with Worcestershire and a few other seasonings. Thoughts?

Looks tasty.  I'm not a smoked nut expert but the few time I've done them I've always used cheese cloth.  I've seen others on here use it and so I figured the smoke would circulate around the nuts better with it.  Places like Home Depot sell it pretty cheap.

Great idea! I punched holes in the foil but the cheesecloth is definitely better! Thanks TedEbear!

You can also use frogmats, and line the sides of the racks with aluminum foil. I like to stir nuts and other small loose items during the smoking time. When I use to use cheese cloth, items will catch on the cloth when I stir and pull the cheese cloth with it. There is a member who cuts his own mats, in order to fold up the sides and make a basket that fits exactly inside the tray.

Order wide QMATZ from a-maze-n and cut them to size, cut a 1" slit in each corner and zip tie. A four foot piece of the wide QMATZ will make six baskets.
