Smoked Nuts with Rosemary Butter

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.
