    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.

    Has anyone else ever tried an electric handheld double paddle mortar mixer to mix meat. Just got one and tried it out on a small 9 lb. Batch of pepperoni meat Cigars. Worked great and got good protien extraction. I have
    one of those 20 lb. Hand mixers. Its better than mixing by hand but is a pain to unload product with this double paddle i use a big stainless stock pot. Wish I’d thought of this years ago but better late than never.

    I have the cool pack on my carnivore grinder. The purpose is to keep the neck super cool and allow the meat/fat to flow through it easily. I’ve used it on and then taken it off. What I noticed is the fat will cling to the walls with it off. If I start with a cold neck and cold meat, it runs much cleaner.
    I like it well enough that I bought a spare to cycle them and keep frozen. P

  • @Screamin I would not mix one day and stuff the next. Once you add the cure and mix, it will start working as you hold the product overnight. You can mix, stuff, and then hold overnight (if not using an additive like ascorbic acid or encapsulated citric acid). With the cure in there, the product will start to firm up and when you stuff the next day, it will become next to impossible to get it out of most any stuffer. Once you start and add cure, you need to get it into casings that same day.
