    Today at work the Dairy department guy asked if we wanted any eggs for free! We in the meat department said " OF COURSE". What happened was a case was damaged when they came and he got credit for the whole case, even though only a few were damaged. After every body took what they wanted there was 9 dozen left! If I didnt take them the rest were gonna get pitched![​IMG] So guess who is gonna smoke a few chicken babies?!!!

    I Cant wait!

    Put the raw eggs in the smoker at about 225-250 and let them smoke for 2.5 hours. They will absorb the smoke thru the shell but its better to use a strong flavored wood to get the most smoke into the egg. If you let them go too long they will crack and they aren't real good then

    Yea what Jerry said. I have done them a few time and they do make some really killing deviled eggs.

    It might not be too late. One of the ways I read to smoke them is to do it after they are hard boiled. Peel them and then smoke them for 20-30 min. I am going to try this method today and see how it goes.

    Well here is 1 test dozen...I'm gonna do a few test batches to see which way works best.
    These were hard boiled first then peeled and put on the top rack of my UDS after I made some Asperagus and ribeys steaks for dinner. The temp was a little high at 250* with pecan smoke



    After I put the lid on they smoked for 1 hour as the temp dropped slowly to 200*. They sure looked smoked dont they?


    Even though they took on a lot of smoke color they didn't really have that much flavor. It seems that the temp might have been too high and dried the surface out and didn't let the smoke in. It was kinda rubbery on the surface.


    Oh well...onto the next 8 dozen[​IMG]
    Will keep ya posted
