  • Fire up. Preheat your grill/smoker to 225°F in the indirect zone.
  • Prep. In a bowl, mix together the salt, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper. Add the wet ingredients and stir. Add the nuts and coat.
  • Cook. Place on an oiled grill topper and smoke for 30 minutes, stirring and flipping after 15 minutes.
  • Cool. Take the nuts off the grill, spread them out in a pan and let them cool and harden thoroughly for about 2 hours.
  • Serve. Once cooled, serve the nuts immediately or store in an airtight container.
