Preheat the smoker to 225 degrees Fahrenheit, using fruit wood, using an indirect method.
Place the mixed nuts in a glass container or sheetpan, and then place in the smoker. Smoke for 90 minutes and then stir the nuts. Smoke additional 90 minutes (for 3 hours total smoking). Remove and glaze the nuts while still warm.
In a small sauce pan, add all ingredients over medium heat and stir until combined. The sugar will caramelize and bubble, be sure to keep stirring for 4 minutes until thick.
Pour the glaze over the smoked mix nuts while they are still warm, and toss together well to combine. Serve warm or cold.
Purchasing Nuts: Make sure to purchase raw nuts (not those that have already been roasted).Mix of Nuts: Use any combination of nuts you like. You can use just one kind (such as pecans), or a mix of your favorite. The glaze is meant for 3 cups of nuts total. Storing - If not serving warm, store in a mason jar. They will stay fresh for a month if kept in the jar, tightly sealed and stored in a cool dark cupboard.
