Yes, you can use hickory nuts to grill. I like using them for chicken especially. Sometimes vegetables with a little olive oil and basil. Soak the nuts in water over night and add them to your charcoal grill or place them on top of your coals in your gas grill. The wet nuts are less likely to catch fire before you finish grilling and will create much more smoke. I have not YET tried using green nuts because I think it will make the food taste like menthol. (I think the green hulls have a menthol taste.) I will probably try green nuts this week with chicken because Hurricane Irene shook a butt load of green nuts our of my 6 hickory trees. Will let you know after I try it.
