Smoked Snack Mix for the Big Game
This smoked snack mix contains all of my favorite salty snacks and after spending an hour or more in the smoker, it is the perfect football party appetizer.
The Snack Mix
- 1 cup of Rice Chex®
- 1 cup of corn Chex®
- 1 cup of pretzels
- 1 cup of mixed nuts
- 1 cup of mini club crackers
- 1 cup of Cheez-its® grooves
- 1 cup Snyder's of Hanover pretzel pieces I recommend cheddar cheese flavor
The Flavored Butter
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1-2 TBS of Tabasco®
- 2 TBS of Jeff's original rub
Step 1: Combine the Snacks
Step 2: Make the Flavored Butter
Step 3: Mix Flavored Butter with Snack Mix
Step 4: Smoke
Setup your smoker to maintain indirect heat of 225°F. If you are using a pellet smoker, I recommend going with 180°F or the low smoke setting for better smoke flavor.
Once the smoke is going, place the pan(s) of snacks into the smoker and close the lid.
Stir the mix occasionally for more uniform smoke flavor.
Smoke the snack mix for about an hour or until the snacks are as crisp and smoky as you like. Note: In a pellet smoker, I recommend 180°F for 2 hours.
Remove the pans from the smoker and bring them into the house to cool.
Step 5: Serve or Store for Party Time
