Yes it really happened. After I took the shell off and had them on the smoker, like I said, the smoke was more pronounced. They were pretty good. I think it was oneeye that said they do them peeled on a low almost cold smoke setting. Id say give it a shot, you might like it.

I'm usually at around 275F. I have a horizontal SnP, so I put them on the RH side, by the chimney pipe since the heat box is on the left. Never had one explode so far....not that I wouldn't think my kids would think that was cool :)

They are great fun to do on nice days when you are outside ALL DAY LONG, smoking meats, cutting the grass, etcetera. The eggs and fatties and the cold beer in the cooler....well no real need to go inside until the brisket is done is there? Just snack away all day long.

I got the idea from a book titled "Don Holm's Book of Food Drying, Pickling and Smoke Curing." They are great as salad toppers.

I have no clue what tempicon_smile.gif . I use 4-5 chunks of charcoal with a piece of apple of plum wood on top.

Well like I said earlier, I really did not get a good smoke with the shell on. A hint of smoke, and far better than boiling alone. So the ones I made, I decided to make into deviled eggs. I used red beet horseradish, some mustard, dried minced onion, black pepper and basic yellow mustad and mayo. Im going to work on the recipe a bit. The photos you see are about 15 minutes old. The eggs are GONE. Kids ate like crazy. These are definitely on the holiday menu. I decided to smoke the deviled eggs with cherry. Why, well its all I had left. But it was great. I would like to try Hickory as well. If you like deviled eggs, take whatever recipe you have and and pop them in the smoker for 30 minutes. These are AWESOME. Wife just got home. Im gonna fry up some bacon andd make that infused bacon vodka that some of you may have seen on the forum today. Try these, you will not be disapointed.
Im including the recipe that I used in case you wanna try.
3TB Mayo.
1 1/2TB Chopped Onion
2 TB Pickle Relish
1 TB Horseradish ( I used beet because I could not find regular stuff)
1 Tb Mustard
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper

Mix it with the yokes, put it back on the eggs, in the smoker on a low heat around 130-140 for 30 minutes.

I have been doing smoked eggs now for 7 years. They are one of the most requested side items I do. Most I have done at one time is 9 dozen. IMO you would be better off boiling first then peeling then smoke'm. When doing them this method you don't have to worry about otbs. Rolling smokes works well. I have GOSM BB and I get the smoke rolling then set at 250 for 20 to 30 minutes or nice light golden brown. Some will say well you get rack marks well they seem to go quicker. DO NOT cut them in half before smoking. Leave them whole. Otherwise you will have a rubber mess. As for my devil mixture I do like if they was just plain. I do toss in some Kraft whipped Horse radish asuce. Just hint to make you guess whats in there. Then a little garlic powder and paprika dusting at the end. Either way there great.

Ya know I did one whole without the shell, and yeah, the smoke did it work. This was a first for me, heck Ill try anything. Some told me to try it with the shell on, I think that its just too much of a barrier for the smoke. As far as the rack marks go, I can live with that. These did have a slight, very slight rubber texture,(the whites) but not bad. The wife has a cheap glass serving dish thats made for deviled eggs, you probably seen them, they hold each egg individually for decorative purposes. Im going to look for some and try them as I think that may prevent any rubbery texture. She will not let me use her good one. But I was quite surprised by them. Ive never really been a big devil egg fan, but I tell ya, if there were 50 of them on that plate that I made this evening, I would have ate them all.biggrin.gif
Thanks for your input, I appreciate it.

Here's a pic from last summer when they were done and I was putting short ribs on-

We peeled them and made deviled eggs out of that batch...excellent!

Good luck to you!

I have tried different ways to smoke eggs but ended up boiling the eggs peeling them then smoking them, and here everybody seems to like a different level of smoke flavor. Some like it light, some want it to jump at you and say "SMOKE" If you like it light use pecan and keep the time short, if you want it heavy use hickory and smoke it longer. Myself I like apple or cherry and about a 1/2 hour, but the time is up to your pallet. When they are done smoking I pickle them if you can keep from eating them. I make up my own pickle juice 2 parts apple cider vinegar, 1 part water, 1 part pickling salt, 2 parts dark brown sugar. I like it hot so i use a dozen jalapenos but I take the seeds & pulp out, and reserve the seeds & pulp to use latter after a week check an egg see if it's hot enough for you. If it's not add some of the pulp & seeds, you will be surprised how much of the heat & salt the eggs will absorb. I have also brine-ed them overnight in salt & brown-sugar plus garlic & onion power plus Tabasco or Cayenne before smoking, I like them best pickled with small carrots, onions,clove's of garlic, celery, peppercorns.You can steam the veggies a little it will speed up the picking. They need to sit 2-3 weeks if you can stay out of them....Vernski    By the way I cold smoke the eggs otherwise they will be to dry.
