Barbecue sauce and a variety of snacks combine to create this salty, spicy, sweet snack aptly named Barbecue Party Snack Mix. It is perfect to eat around the smoker while you are waiting for the main course to cook, or as part of a finger food selection while hanging out with friends. You’ll find both the crunch and the smoky flavor irresistible.

Feel free to experiment with a variety of snacks to barbecue coat, or just use whatever is in the cupboard. If you’re not a fan of heat then drop the spicy red sauce. If you have a sweet tooth, then add some honey or brown sugar to the mix. However you personalize it, you can’t go wrong.

The Gateway drum is a great smoker option to cook this snack mix. It also works great on closed grills, charcoal, or gas. You can also cook up this mix in a camp oven if you’re out on a trip.
