Default Hot Nuts

One thing I love about this place is the variety of recipes and methods there are here. I saw this thread about Neil's nuts last year and figured I should try 'em. I'm not one to rush into anything, so I figured that, after about 14 months, I should give it a go.

I modded a little since I didn't have the Dale's sauce - I just subbed with 50/50 woosty and soy sauce. I also added All Spice Cafe Cayenne and Habenero sauce, subbed the hot vinegar for Shack Attack, added a little Ghost Pepper rub (again All Spice Cafe) as well as some stuff called Vulcan Fire Salt. Oh yeah, a little Habenero Death Dust as well. I know this sounds like it's going to a crazy hot place, but it really isn't - it's definitely hot (at least I'm guessing it is, I'm a very bad judge of what other folks think is hot), but there's flavor to back it up, so it's not about just ripping your face off. I like a good kick as a part of a flavor profile, not as the whole point of it.

On the UDS at around 300, probably a little hotter than that actually.

I'm guessing I went less than a couple hours - as usual, not paying very close attention

I might cook them at a little lower next time to get more time in the smoke and there are the beginnings of a little bit of a scorch-ey taste to 'em. Still, these things are pretty dang good. They will be even better tomorrow.
