When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes).
Combine popcorn and peanuts in a large bowl and toss.
Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a gentle boil until the temperature reads 250 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Stir in baking soda and let bubble for 1 minute. Remove from heat and while whisking, add in bourbon and vanilla. Working quickly, pour the hot caramel over the popcorn and peanuts and toss to coat.
Divide the mixture in half and spread over two parchment lined baking sheets.
Place directly on the grill grate and smoke for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with sea salt and let cook.
Break into bite sized pieces and serve. Enjoy!
