I have had great success in smoking almonds but now I need to try something new. My wife bought some raw pecans and walnuts. I have no idea of what kind of wood to use. Do I just smoke and salt, or do I add spices? I smoke the almonds with hickory and would like to use different wood for the pecans/walnuts. As always, I appreciate the great help you all offer.

Thank You. I will try the maple/chicken rub recipe, with apple wood and smoke pecans. I now need a walnut mixture for a verity of flavor.I'm thinking about walnuts, in a small amount of butter and salt, with a little inferno spice. What do you think? Very helpful, Thank you
What is inferno spice? It sounds hot, and I'm a big fan of hot.
By the way, I've haven't smoked any nuts yet, but a flavor I like with walnuts is cranberry. I wonder if you could marinate the walnuts in cranberry juice with a handful of dried cranberries to pick up some of the flavor. Then drain, season, toss in a little butter, and smoke.
