Sweet-Hot Smokey Nuts
- 4 cups mixed nuts (unsalted & raw if possible)
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (if using unsalted nuts)
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more if you want hotter nuts)
In a medium bowl, whip egg white until frothy. Add sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper and salt. Stir until thoroughly combined. Toss nuts into bowl and coat thoroughly. Spread nuts evenly on a pan with holes or a smoker-rack screen. Preheat smoker to 220º. Cook 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool and continue stirring occasionally to break up larger chunks.
