Whisk until soft peaks start to form
Add the almonds to the egg white mixture and mix well to combine and coat the nuts with the egg whites
Add the sugar mixture to the nuts and mix well to ensure all the nuts are well coated with the sugar mixture
Spread the pecans onto a perforated grilling pan
Open the lid/cover and load the nuts into the Traeger, on the bottom grate, close lid/cover
Keep the temperature the same during cooking to ensure consistent temp and easy recovery during cooking
After 15 minutes, open the Traeger and stir the almonds using tongs
Repeat the stirring process 3 more times or until almonds are evenly roasted and to your desired doneness
Open the lid/cover and remove the pan using tongs, towels or heat proof gloves
