Here's an easy crowd pleasing snack you can make for your parties before your barbecue meats are ready. As the hot smoked nuts emerge from your pit, your guests are sure to be drawn in by the buttery sweet fragrance of rosemary in your backyard. In my catering gigs, this is a very popular signature item. If you're not having a party, you can enjoy them while your barbecue cooks. Better yet if there's a football game going on and you're got your favorite ice-cold beer to keep you company.

    I made these nuts and they were fantastic! The only problem is I don’t think my wife will let me smoke anything without making these too! My only question is, if I don’t want to bring the smoker up that hot, can I cook them longer at a lower temp and get a similar result?

      Go ahead an try a lower temp to see if you like them that way. Always experiment. I cooked mine at 350F because I didn’t want to wait too long!
