Yield: about 3 cups

  • ⅓ cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ – ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 16 ounces dry roasted Certified SC peanuts


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a large baking sheet and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, butter, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Add the peanuts and stir well, coating the peanuts evenly with the mixture.
  3. Transfer the peanuts to the baking sheet and arrange peanuts in a single layer. (A good jiggle usually does the trick!)
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  5. After the bake time, spread the peanuts evenly on waxed paper to cool. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
