I wouldn't use smoked but you could try. I also use less cayenne and always make extra. The dressing with the nuts is great.

is this a crazy question: can you use smoked almonds or would that be a disaster?

These almonds are addictive! I usually use about 1/2 the cayenne pepper to give a little heat but not too much. (my family tends to like things less spicy.) I usually make a double batch and put it into a couple of zip top baggies and carry them around for a snack.
