Directions

Step 1

Preheat outside barbecue (barbecue needs a lid) to medium high.

Step 2

Soak wood chips in water for 5 minutes. Put chips in a heavy-bottomed sauté pan with oven-proof handles or perforated pan and place on preheated outside barbecue.

Step 3

In a medium sized bowl toss nuts together with peanut oil. In a separate small bowl mix paprika, cayenne and Worcestershire together. Add the spice mixture to the nuts. Toss to combine. Put nuts on a baking sheet or aluminum foil pie plates in a single layer.

Step 4

When chips get hot and start smoking, about 5 to 10 minutes, add baking sheet with nuts on the upper rack of the barbecue. (Keep sauté pan of wood chips on the lower rack of the barbecue.)

Step 5

Close the lid on the barbecue and turn down the heat to the lowest setting. Stir the nuts after 6 to 8 minutes. Smoke the nuts until lightly golden, about 10 to 15 minutes total cooking time. Toss with sea salt while still hot. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
