These sweet and smoky treats are great for parties.

0/5 (0 Reviews)


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 lb. pecan halves
  • 2 tbsp of bourbon or amaretto


Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 300°F/149°C.

Mix sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.

Beat the egg whites and water together in a separate bowl until they are frothy and peaks begin to form. Add the bourbon or amaretto until combined. Toss the pecans in the egg white mixture, and then mix the sugar mixture in until the pecans are evenly coated. Spread the coated pecans onto a baking sheet or the Big Green Egg Disposable convEGGtor Pan.

Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until pecans are evenly browned; this should take about 1 hour.

  1. These turned out GREAT. Family gobbled them up. Going to make them for coworkers for Christmas. Only thing I did different was replace the bourbon with vanilla extract. It’s all I had at the time.
