In-Shell Smoked Eggs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Well, I'm tossing some chicken thighs in the smoker, but I had an extra rack that I didn't want to go to waste so I decided to throw some raw eggs on the top rack at 275 with some hickory wood in the AMNPS.  I'm going to leave them in for about 2 hours and hope they pick up some smokey flavor (even if it's a light flavor).  First time experiment, and I hope it goes OK.

You should see a defined smoke penetration on the eggs.  Makes for a great egg salad or deviled eggs.

Pterodactyl eggs is what you're smoking if you're starting from raw. Type it into the search and a bunch of threads will pop up. Not much smoke gets through the shell.

Yup...not much smoke got through the shell after 2 hours.  But they still turned out great (even with only a very minimal smokey flavor).  Pretty cool to see the shell turn brown instead of stay white (and the eggs have a distinct brown color too).

I'm sure that was very tasty!

 

Try it next time for around 6 hours, you'll love it!

 

Egg shells are porous, the membrane surrounding the white and the yolk is what keeps the egg stuff from seeping through.

My brother smokes raw eggs on his pellet grill. He uses the lowest setting for 3-4 hrs. I've tested his deviled eggs, and there great. Not as much smoke flavor as my cold smoked hardboiled/pealed eggs though. I cold smoke for 1 1/2 hrs.
