Introduction: Smoked Eggs

About: I live with my wife and children in Fort Worth, TX. We enjoy day-trips and junk stores. I'm a firm believer that homemade food tastes better and I love to try new recipes. When I can, I like to head out to the…

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!
