How to Make Smoked Almonds
PREHEAT: Low and slow is the key to a nice smoky flavor. Preheat the smoker to 180°.
SEASON: Place butter in a microwave safe bowl, heat until melted. Add the BBQ Rub, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to the melted butter. Stir until combined. Place almonds on a cookie sheet with a rim, pour season mixture over almonds. Your hands are the best tool for this step. Mix until almonds are completely coated.
SMOKE: Place the cookie sheet with the seasoned almonds in the smoker, smoke 2 hours. After the two hours the almonds should have a nice smoky flavor. Now it’s time to give the almonds a nice toasty flavor. Stir the almonds and crank up the temperature to 350°. Roast 1 hour.
COOL: At first the almonds will be soft, as they cool they will become crunchy. Place smoked almonds on the counter to completely cool. You can serve them warm. The cooler the almonds the crunchier they become.
STORE: Separate the almonds from the loose spice blend, add a sprinkle of kosher salt. Store in an airtight container.
