1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp melted butter
1 Tbsp sea salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
8 cups unsalted almonds
Place butter in a large bowl, and microwave for 30 seconds to melt.
Add honey, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon to the bowl, and mix well.
Add unsalted almonds and mix thoroughly to completely cover the almonds.
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Walnuts, pecans or other nuts
Place nuts in a BBQueCan
Smoke at 100° (low temp) for 2+ hours. I use Apple, Cherry or Maple for light smoke flavor.
Raise temp to 250° for 45 minutes to 1 hour to set the coating on the nuts.
While they are still warm and the coating is gooey, pour out onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle some additional sea salt or K-salt on the nuts. Wait until they cool and break them apart.
Smoking at low temps for 2 hours adds a great smoke flavor to the almonds, and a light sprinkle of K-salt or sea salt really enhances the flavor.
