I did this once before. It was great. Thought I might try adding a bit of brown sugar this time around. We’ll see where that takes it.
I started with the below. I vaguely remember using a combination of olive oil and butter last time. Could be wrong though. We’ll see what I do next time.
- 48 oz bag of almonds (about 11 C)
- 2 t cayenne
- 2 T salt
- 2 T brown sugar
- 2 T peanut oil
Put the almonds into a large bowl and coat thoroughly with olive oil. Combine spices in a mortar and pestle or a ramekin. Sprinkle and mix into almonds, again coating thoroughly.
Put them in a single layer in pans for your smoker of choice. Smoke hot (250f to 300f) for some time (twenty minutes or until satisfyingly roasted).
Not as good as my previous batch (down to good from amazing). I’ll have to experiment more.
Maybe borrow from this one next time.
