Bourbon BBQ Nuts

Here's a creative way to use your favorite BBQ seasoning or Dry Rub on the grill. This recipe multiplies easily, so make a big batch before your next football party, or better yet, grill them up while you tailgate - eating the nuts while they're still warm is pure pleasure!

1 Cup of roasted shelled Peanuts or Pecans
1 Tbs butter
1/4 tsp of the BBQ seasoning or Dry Rub of your choice
1 splash of Bourbon (resist the urge to use too much, or else it will dilute the flavor of the dry seasonings)

Melt the butter in a pan. When the butter is melted, splash in the bourbon -- don't use the good stuff, we're just looking for a little strong flavor. Add the seasoning or dry rub and stir in to mix, then add the nuts and stir well to coat. Place all of this on a tinfoil sheet, crimping the corners to make a "pan." Grill on low heat until done (any liquid will evaporate and the nuts will have a light "crust" of seasoning). Remove from grill, place nuts in a heat-proof bowl and sprinkle with additional seasoning if a stronger flavor is desired.
