Barbecue Trail Mix

This trail mix uses three kinds of nuts (cashews, pecans, Marcona almonds), two kinds of dried fruit (apricots, figs), cacao nibs, and a flurry of spices (cinnamon, cumin, and more). Barbecue sauce and bacon glazed with maple syrup add an irresistible savory-sweet tang to the snack.Romulo Yanes

Chef Edward Lee of nouveau Southern restaurant 610 Magnolia, in Louisville, Kentucky, created this explosively flavored trail mix for his 22-city Smoke and Pickles (Artisan, 2013) cookbook tour. He uses three kinds of nuts (cashews, pecans, Marcona almonds), two kinds of dried fruit (apricots, figs), cacao nibs, and a flurry of spices (cinnamon, cumin, and more). Barbecue sauce and bacon glazed with maple syrup add an irresistible savory-sweet tang to the snack.
