Trying something different. Making smoked eggs.

Started up my smoker this morning and was thinking since I had a couple extra racks I'd try to figure out something else to try. For some reason I thought of eggs. Come to find out it's on the web, of course.

Anyways they are in the smoker right now. Hopefully they will turn out okay.

1. Eggs + heat yummy.

I don't know what smoke adds to the recipe, unless the eggs are cracked. Then, I don't think I want anything to do with them. If they are still in an intact shell, the smoke likely makes no difference.

My advice: hot frying pan + bacon grease or butter + optional cover = perfect fried egg (meaning perfect egg). Whites firm; yolks runny. Simple... easy-peasy!

3. Took out one to see it's progress.

It was the consistency of jelly. Since I just barely took some shell off I was able to finish cooking in boiling water. It does have a slight smoky bacon taste.

Hopefully the others will have more smoke flavor.

Looked at another they describe the finished taste there. Doing them in the shell.

I also saw on google where they boiled the eggs first, shelled them, and then smoked. That would probably get the most smoke flavor going. I'd just worry about drying them out.

2. When I was a kid

We would go fishing at the river. Whatever we caught we ate right there. If we didn't catch anything we at bacon and eggs cooked up on an open fire. I don't know if they were smoked but we certainly were. Update us on the smoked eggs.

4. Okay took them out.

They do have a slight brown smoke to the egg white. Very light smoke taste. After trying it this way. I will probably go with the soft boil first method. After removing the shell one way was to put a pan of ice below the eggs while smoking so you don't over cook them. I will try that next time.


Edit: Heard thunder so had to start putting the smoker up. But I was able to remove the shells off a few and toss them back in. I wasn't able to keep them in very long, but got a little more smoke flavor to them. They are pretty good.

Think I will try it this way next time.

5. Tried a lot easier way today.

Did another run at smoked eggs. This time boiling them first on the range top. Removing shell. Then instead of using the electric smoker just used my charcoal grill. I tossed wood chips in my chip pan and used a propane torch to fire them up. Placed on the grill to one side, let the smoke get going strong, tossed the eggs in, and closed the lid.

For me this was a lot easier then the smoker. I don't have to run out the cord or set up the table I put my smoker on. Plus it takes less time to get the smoke going. So don't think you need a smoke box. A grill with a lid worked great. One of the pits with a side wood box would be good also. Just using a pan with wood chips since you aren't trying to cook it.

After trying this many smoked eggs I'm burnt out on them. This has been more of test of smoking then making for a get together. Just smoked eggs to me doesn't have the kick or taste possibilities I'm looking for. Next step is looking at ways to use them. Looking up smoked devil eggs there have been some pretty interesting recipes. I've seen some with ingredients like worcestershire, sriracha, jalapeno, etc. So a lot of options. Even saw a chocolate dessert deviled egg which could be interesting with a lightly smoked egg.

I'm going out of town this week end so won't be testing smoked deviled recipes. May try getting together some stuff to try different recipes next week.

6. If you are experimenting, try soy sauce eggs

Hard cook some eggs, peel them, pour some soy sauce over them. Let them soak a couple hours. I love these. I put the eggs in a small shallow dish, and pour in enough soy sauce to half cover them, then turn them till they are brown all over.

7. That sounds easy enough

What do you do with them after they are finished marinating in the soy sauce? Eat them as is? Put them in a salad? Just wondering what you thought went well with them.

8. I just eat them

Have you ever had pickled eggs? My mother-in-law made them for Easter and some other special occasions. My husband loved them, so I would make a dozen now and then. The soy eggs are a nice variation.

I used 12 eggs, 1 or 2 cans of beets, 1/2 cup of vinegar, a dash of salt, a dash of sugar and some whole allspice. Hard cook the eggs. While they are cooking, drain the beet juice off the beets.* Combine the beet juice, the vinegar and salt, sugar and allspice into a glass jar or bowl. When the eggs are hard, peel and rinse, and place them gently into the juice. There should be enough beet juice to cover the eggs.** Put them in the fridge for at least 6 hours,or overnight. You can gently turn the jar so the eggs all have a chance at a deep soak. Serve them as a side to dinner, or snack on them with some salt.

*You can use the beets for something else. I usually pour some vinegar on them, put them in the fridge to soak up the flavor and snack on them.

**If you are a little short of juice, you can pour a 1/4 cup of water over the beets in the can and you'll get a little more juice. I usually put a few pieces of beets in the juice too for flavor. I have a 1/2 gallon pickle jar I've used forever.

9. You can google soy eggs and get some ideas

I just started making them a year ago, and I like them on their own so much, I haven't paired them with anything lol

10. Never heard of smoked eggs! Interesting!

My hubby and I have been seeing tons of posts about Cloud Eggs on Instagram, so we tried it out. They're (obviously) a little more work, but they sure come out with an amazing texture and taste! So, if you're looking for new things to do with eggs:
