- Chex Cereal – We used a mixture of wheat, corn and rice cereal.
- Pretzels – We used the pretzels rods but any type will work.
- Butter – If you are looking to keep it a little less salty use the unsalted butter.
- Worcestershire Sauce – The perfect pop of flavor.
- BBQ Rub – You can find the recipe here or buy it!
Preheat smoked to 250 degrees Fahrenheit according to your manufacturer’s directions.
In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and garlic powder. Mix until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to coat.
Spread out evenly in two large rimmed baking pan. We used a large disposable pan for easy cleanup. The more spread out the snack mix is the more smoke flavor it will pick up.
Smoke for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Spread out on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.
What Flavor of Pellets Should I Use?
As far as smoker pellets, we like to use fruity ones for this recipe because the smoke flavor is milder. We love using cherry or apple wood pellets, but you can use other non-fruity pellets like a competition blend is always a great universal pellet to have on hand.
You can’t go wrong with butter in this recipe, but feel free to use vegetable oil or even coconut oil in place of the butter. To cut down on the salt you can use unsalted butter.
When you stir, be careful not to break the pretzels and cereal. A gentle stir or folding motion works best.
