    Will it BBQ? Cashews!

    In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Cashews and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Prep Time

    5 Minutes

    Cook Time

    45 Minutes

    Ingredients

    Cashew Pieces
    Olive Oil

    Utensils Needed

    Non-Stick Mesh Baskets
    Flip Professional Smoke Box

    Instructions

    Place cashews in a bowl and coat evenly with olive oil, or oil of your choice. Now sprinkle on your seasoning of choice. We decided to try Salt and Vinegar Wingshake and the Cajun Rub. Now lay them out on a single level of a Non-Stick Mesh Basket, or another non-stick surface, and place in your smoking chamber as far from the smoke as possible. We wanted to have the Cashews retain as much of the creaminess as possible so we decided to cold smoke these. We used the Flip Professional Smoke Box and some Hickory Wood Chips to provide smoke but add as little heat as possible.

    So, Will it BBQ?

    This would be a definite yes. The two different flavors offered wildly different tastes but both were delicious. The Salt and Vinegar ones had more upfront taste and they had a nice caramelized style coating on them from what little heat did get to them. The Cajun ones didn’t have a strong taste at first but had a very pleasant warmth to them that worked well with the smoke and the creaminess of the cashews. Since we did this a week ago I have already made a large batch of this at my house and my wife and I love them!

    @jonathon are the non-stick baskets available at Walton’s? Looks like they would be good for cold smoking cheese.

    Shaping the Dough Add to Baking Stone Pizza Slice Ingredients

    During one of our recent livestreams, Big John offered to give us a great pizza dough recipe. He claimed it would give me a leg up on Austin when we eventually do our pizza competition. Well, I wanted to try it so I made some pepperoni here while I was propping open the door to try to get the temp to hold at 120° and then I finished them up in our sous vide cooker.

    So his recipe called for 4 cups of King Arthur all-purpose flour but I decided to use the one specifically for pizza crusts, 2 packs of dry yeast, not the rapid rise kind, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 cup of olive oil.

    Steps for Dough

    Take the 2 packs of yeast and mix with 1-1/2 cups of warm water. Then mix the rest of the ingredients in an oiled bowl, make sure everything is nice and mixed in and then transfer to a clean oiled bowl, cover with some plastic wrap and let it sit for an hour. Then put it in the fridge overnight.

    Then the next day make another batch and mix them together, this was a tip from him that really seems to work out well! Then you can split them into batches and you can freeze them for up to 3 months but just know that he says the longer you leave them in the freezer they will not be as good!

    Cooking Directions

    Now, we are using a pizza stone so we are warming it up for an hour at 500°. I like to form the dough into a circle, now I am not perfect at this so it is more of a circle like shape than a true circle and then put it on the stone for 1-2 minutes to firm it up a little more. This will make adding the topping a lot better in my mind.

    Now add your sauce, cheese, and any other toppings. I like to sprinkle some Garlic Romano Wing Sauce onto mine while it cooks, it is very good on pizza. We have cut our pepperoni pretty thin and we will put a good amount of that on top of the cheese.

    Then lower the temp to 400 put your pizza in there and cook for about 8-10 minutes or just until the pizza dough is as hard as you like it and just as the cheese starts to turn brown in a few spots.
