Introduction: Smoked Eggs

Smoked eggs are.... interesting. You can eat them plain or add them to a recipe that calls for boiled eggs. The smoky taste is very subtle, but enough of it comes across to modify whatever recipe you use the eggs in.

These are very easy to make, though they do take some time. I made these while I already had some ribs on the smoker.

Step 1: Boil Them First

You can smoke them raw, it just takes a lot longer. I boiled these for 5 minutes, then placed them in an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

Step 2: Smoke 'Em

I placed them in the smoker directly on the rack. The temperature of the smoker ranged between 220 Fahrenheit and 260 Fahrenheit. I left them on for a little over 2 hours.

I removed them and put them in another ice bath to halt the cooking process.

After that, peel and eat.

These would probably make very interesting devilled eggs.

If you wanted them to be super smoky, you could probably peel them before you smoke them. It might make them a little rubbery, though.

As always, thanks for reading!

This are great - I take it one step further and use the for Gluten Free/Low Carb smoked scotch eggs.
Wrap them in ground italian or breakfast sausage and smoke them again...

I can't thank you enough. I went to a street festival in rural VT and had smoked PICKLED eggs. I've been pickling all sorts of stuff for years and I tried duplicating the recipe, but cheated by using liquid smoke. This will help me stick to what's "right". I can't wait to try it out. You should give it a whirl, too. Smoked, pickled eggs ROCK!

Cheers!

You're welcome. I've had hot pickled eggs before, but I've never seen smoked ones. I may have to give it a try. Thanks!
