Are you getting ready to carve your pumpkins this weekend? Whether you’re cutting out triangle eyes and a toothy grin or creating a work of gourd art, there’s a treasure trove waiting inside the pumpkin: seeds. Roasted pumpkin seeds are one of the easiest Halloween treats out there, and there are so many flavors you can try. But did you ever consider smoking your pumpkin seeds on your pellet grill? You can fit tons of seeds inside a pellet grill, and it keeps the whole mess of carving, gutting, and roasting outside instead of on your kitchen floor. We have both sweet and savory seed recipes for you to try on your wood smoker this weekend.

CINNAMON SUGAR PUMPKIN SEEDS

  • 1 & 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tbs. salted butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbs. white sugar

Heat your pellet grill to 300° F. Melt the butter, add cinnamon and sugar, and pour into a bag. Pour your pumpkin seeds into the bag with the mixture then toss to coat each seed. Lay them out on a greased baking sheet, and bake for about 40 minutes. Keep an eye on your pumpkin seeds while they bake to be sure you don’t overcook them.

 

KICKIN’ BBQ PUMPKIN SEEDS

Heat your pellet grill to 300° F. Melt the butter and coat the seeds in it. Lay the seeds on a lightly greased baking sheet and sprinkle the rub on top. Move the seeds around the sheet to coat them completely. Bake for about 40 minutes. Keep an eye on your pumpkin seeds while they bake to be sure you don’t overcook them.
