TGIF: Grilled Nuts!

17 Comments | Written on July 30, 2010 at 5:00 am , by

Of all the things we can prepare on the grill, this one is just NUTS!  Literally…These grilled nuts are irresistible with a cold summer drink!  Be sure and use very low heat so they won’t burn.  You can use a mixture of your favorite nuts, but I found large pecan halves to be the very best!  They are extra good if you use mesquite or hickory briquettes.  A smoker is ideal, but any outdoor grill works well, too.

I don’t have a smoker, so I used my gas grill and a disposable 9 x 13 pan.  (It gets really hot under that lid and you wouldn’t want to ruin your nice pans.)  Just remember to keep your eyes on the grill and stir frequently.  Get ready, because the aroma is fantastic!  They are hands down the best spiced nuts I have ever made!

Hot and Smokin’ Grilled Nut Munch

1 Tablespoon butter (no substitutes!), melted

2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 teaspoons red chile powder (New Mexico style or ground Ancho chiles)

4 teaspoons soy sauce

2-3 teaspoons bottled hot pepper sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 cups pecan halves (or assorted whole nuts)

1.  Combine the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, chile powder, soy sauce, hot pepper sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl.  Add nuts; toss to coat evenly.  Transfer to a 13-by-9-inch disposable foil pan.

2.  Arrange mesquite or hickory chips over charcoal or place them in a small foil tray and set on gas coals.

3.  Grill nuts over indirect, very low heat for about 25 minutes or until nuts are dry and crisp, stirring every 10 minutes.  Watch carefully the last 1 0 minutes of grilling because the nuts will burn easily.

4.  Remove from heat; cool.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.  Makes 3 cups nuts.
