Smoked Chili Pistachios Recipe

To start this Smoked Chili Pistachios Recipe, preheat your smoker to 225F (107.2C) and your house oven to 275 F (135C). You may increase the brown sugar and cayenne to taste. I only used one puck to smoke them for just 20 minutes at 225(107.2C). Use the bisquette you like and as many as you want. And use a frogmat on the ham bag, or they will stick. Store in airtight canister or Zip lock.


2 cups salted shelled pistachios
1.5 Tbsp chili powder
1.5 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp brown sugar
1.5 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 Tbsp melted butter


Mix all your dry ingredients together.

Put pistachios in larger container and add sauce.

After coating the nuts with the sauce (This needs a sticky delivery host, so i melted 1 Tbsp butter and added to the nuts) Coat good.

Now start to add the dry. Coat with all the dry.

Next, cover the rack with a ham bag. These can be bought at any of the places online. LEM, Allied, Sausage Maker.

And use a frogmat on the ham bag.

Now add the seasoned pistachios.

I only used 1 puck (you can use however many) And in for just the 20 mins @225.

While the nuts are in the 6 Rack, line a cookie sheet with parchment and set the oven to 275*

Nuts from the smoker, now onto the cookie sheet and in oven for 8 mins. Toss the nuts at the 4 min mark.

Store in airtight canister or Zip lock….if they last that long.
