Thought I would use my seafood grill but this didn't work - too many almonds went through the small holes. Put a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack and poked holes in it with a large meat fork. This worked OK, but I forgot to spray the foil with Pam and the Almonds stuck.
Found my seafood grills for my 009 - the holes are much smaller than the ones I bought for my AQ so the nuts don't fall through. Also the 009 ones don't stick to the nuts if you forget the Pam spray (again)
Made another batch of almonds. Started with hot oven from a previous smoke. Left them in about 4 hrs and 15 minutes - came out semi-burnt tasting. Will have to throw them out. 4 hours @225 is good but only when starting with a cold smoker.
Smoked some walnuts and pecan halves - 2 hours in hickory @ 225. made pralines with the pecans and candied the walnuts. Unusual taste. I love 'em. Wife not so much. Co-workers are either "Unbelievable" or taste confusion.
