Smoking Method: Warm Smoking

Temperature and Time: For smoking almonds, a low-temperature smoking method is recommended. As a general guideline, use settings for warm smoking or cold smoking, and smoking time should be around 30 minutes to 1 hour. However, smoking time can be adjusted based on the size of the almonds and personal preference. Find the optimal time while adjusting the flavor.

  5. Adjust Smoking Time: Smoking time for almonds varies based on personal preference. Adjust the time until you achieve the desired aroma and flavor.
  6. Cool Down: Once smoking is complete, let the almonds cool down for a while before using.
