    Default Chipotle flavored smoked peanuts

    Chipotle Smoked Peanuts

    I wanted to try, one last time, to smoke some peanuts, the last three times, over the past years, were not screaming successes. I often ended up with something that looked like coffee beans the damn things kept cooking even after I had removed them from the smoker. I even tried once to put them in ice water after the smoke to stop the cooking I do not recommend doing that ! I think that I was trying to smoke them at too high a temperature.

    This time I searched for recipes and smoking temperatures before starting.
    Amazing the differences you can find on the web !!!
    For example, smoking temperatures :
    225F (107C) 325F (163C) no time indicated ?
    250F (121C) for 10 minutes !!!!? no way can peanuts be cooked in 10 minutes !
    250F (121C) - 325F (163C) - no time indicated ? - and that is a pretty big spread
    300F (149C) - 325F (163C) ? for 40 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the nuts are light golden brown.

    I decided to try to keep the temperature around 230F (110C) and checking and tasting every 10 minutes.
    At the end I bumped the temperature up to 277F (136C) for 10 minutes.

    Minimum temp : 198F (92C)
    Maximum : 277F (136C).
    Average : 230F (110C)
    Smoked for 2 hours 15 minutes with Oak and Sweet Acacia (suppose to be like Mesquite).

    I adapted one of the recipes that I found (no Green Tabasco over here and I did not have any Red, so I replaced the two with Chipotle pepper sauce best idea I have had in a long time !).

    Here is what I coated the peanuts with :

    2 cups raw peanuts
    2 TBS melted butter
    3 TBS Chipotle pepper sauce
    1 tsp Worcestershire
    tsp granulated garlic
    tsp salt
    tsp dry, ground, yellow mustard

    In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter and all the seasonings, stirring until well mixed.
    Add nuts and stir thoroughly to coat.

    This is Good !

    2 hours later,
    Done (and not burnt !) :

    I am really happy with the result, now that I found the right time and temperature I will do this again.

    Thanks for looking.

    That looks like something to try.
    And I just might.

    They sound amazing! Glad you didn't give up.

    No chickens were harmed in this statement. But it doesn't mean I didn't want to.
