  • 1 pound raw almonds (Be sure they are not already roasted)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, Plus one teaspoon


  • Preheat smoker to 225 degrees Fahrenheit using cherry, apple or oak.
  • Place almonds in an open dish and place into the smoker for one hour. Stir after the first hour and continue smoking one more hour.
  • After two hours of smoking, mix the olive oil and salt with the almonds in the same dish and stir. Close lid and smoke one additional hour.
  • Remove from smoker and then add the teaspoon of salt and mix. Serve warm, or place into a food safe storage container or mason jar and store for up to 4 weeks in the pantry.


You can reheat the almonds at any point. Simply place into a food safe dish into an oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. The lower temperature is to slowly warm them versus roasting them any further.
