Grocery List

Oil and Spices

  • 1 tsp dried thyme or rosemary or ½ teaspoon of each
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 0.25 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 0.25 tsp mustard powder


  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 2 cup mixed salted nuts (almonds, pecans, cashews, etc.)

Special Equipment

  • 2 hickory wood chunks
  • 1 large disposable foil pans


  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme or rosemary or ½ teaspoon of each
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
  • 2 cups mixed salted nuts, such as almonds, pecans, cashews, etc.
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Prepare a two-zone fire for low heat (250° to 350°F). 

  2. In a small bowl mix the sugar, thyme, cayenne, and mustard powder between your fingertips.

  3. Pour the nuts into a large disposable foil pan. Add the oil and seasonings. Toss to coat the nuts evenly, and then spread them in a single layer.

  4. Add the wood chunks to the charcoal, and put the lid on the grill. When the wood begins to smoke, place the pan of nuts over indirect low heat and cook, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the nuts are toasted and have a nice smoky flavor, 20 to 30 minutes, shaking the pan with tongs a couple times to prevent the nuts from burning. Wearing insulated barbecue mitts, remove the pan from the grill and let the nuts cool completely in the pan. The nuts will become crispier as they cool. Serve at room temperature. Store any remaining nuts in an airtight container.

Worth a try

Another easy to prepare mixed nut recipe. I liked rhe sweet and spicy recipe on this site better but this one is still good.
