It's been a while since I smoked any almonds and I'm wanting to do a batch or two.
I've listed the last two batches that I've done and am considering to repeat.
I thought I'd check to see if there were any newer and or better suggestions.....
Pags @ CookShackI smoke almonds quite a bit and have had success with this recipe:
4 lbs Almond
6 TB Worcestershire sauce
2 TB granulated garlic
2 tsp salt or sea salt
In a large bowl and using a large serving spoon, mix the almonds with the sauce until completely coated. Add garlic, mix till evenly covered.
Add salt, mix till evenly coated. Lay almonds in a single layer on cookie sheets. Once layered on the cookie sheets, I sprinkle on some more garlic (only if you like it heavier) and a little more salt.
Smoke at 225* for 3-4 hrs
I can get 1.5 lbs of almonds on each cookie sheet.

Just did another batch of almonds. I got turned on to huli huli chicken and ribs in Hawaii last year, and I've made huli huli wings, but I wanted to see how almonds would turn out similarly treated. I used about 2 oz of hickory at 225 for 2.5 hours in my AQ.
Huli Huli Almonds
11.5 oz raw almonds (from BJ's)
1 T pineapple juice
1/2 t sriracha
1/2 t soy sauce
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t ginger powder
1 t sea salt
Mix the pineapple juice, sriracha and soy sauce together and pour over almonds. Stir to completely wet all the almonds. Sprinkle over the garlic, ginger and salt and stir to coat almonds evenly. Spread evenly in one layer to smoke (I used a frog mat).
Allow to cool and place in a zip bag for 1/2 hour to blend flavors.
