Purchase a 2-lb. can of salted mixed nuts.
Use 2 chunks of hickory wood in the wood box and smoke the nuts at 225°F for about 40-45 min. Spread out directly on the seafood rack so they don't fall through the cracks.
After that time, turn off the unit and leave the door closed for the nuts to cool inside.
When cool, return them to the original nut container until you're ready to serve them or pack them for gifts.
If you have a few too many nuts for the seafood rack, put the extras on a piece of foil and put that directly on a regular grill rack. When they're in the smoker, poke holes in the foil to let some smoke through.
The nuts smoked on the seafood rack may taste smokier, so mix them all together when serving.
These are fantastic for football get-togethers, hunting trips or just as a great snack when you get home from work.
I packed them in baggies and labeled them, then tied with a silver ribbon to give to the neighbors.
