    I'm sure I'm not the first person to try this but just want to let people know that everytime I've brought these to a party they are a hit.

    Boil eggs for 18 minutes, chill and peel. Set smoke for about 140o and smoker for about an hour with your favorite wood. Chill and proceed to make deviled eggs as you normally would. I use mayo, dijon mustard, parsley, salt and pepper.

    With the Holidays approaching this is something different to bring to a potluck.

    The yolks take on more smoke than the whites and the whites sometimes look dirty after smoking so if I'm taking them out of the house I will often just smoke the yolks then mash, mix and stuff as usual.

    I think the 18 minutes is correct. But I believe, from grammy's cook book, it is: bring to a boil, then SIMMER for 18 minutes.

    Also, do you feel that you get smoke to the yokes? I'm wondering if you went ahead and halved them, then smoked. Probably wouldn't take as long, and you would get good smoke to the yoke; nothing wrong with a little yoke smoke, eh?

    Now this makes much more sense. The OP made it sound like you actually boil them for 18 min, which seemed way too long. Thanks for correcting this.

    Yep, I smoke the whole egg and chill and slice after. Mine are just slightly brown on the outside, not green at all. Just want to hit it with enough smoke to flavor it.

    I've always cooked hard boiled eggs for 18 minutes. Boil the water, add the eggs and when the water returns to a boil time them for 18 minutes. This is just my way and I know there are a lot of opinions out there on how long they should go. The important thing it to get there however your comfortable with.

    From my expereince the white does take on a slight brown color but nothing un-appealing. When i eat deviled eggs they are 1 amybe 2 bite and whether it is the white, yolk, or both smoked it pretty much tastes the same.
