    You smoke them at 250 for about 3 hours. I would recommend using mesquite if possible, it seems to impart the most smoke flavor. Yes, the smoke does penetrate the shells. It is not a strong flavor, very mild. The eggs are taken straight from the fridge and set in the smoker. Make sure to keep them away from any hot spots or the shell will explode (after the egg has cooked, but it's still a mess.)
     
  3. wht Irishteabear said except that I use hickory, oak, or pecan, or maple.

    I have done them several time and they turn out really good. One thing I do, and you might want to try it, is to make deviled eggs. Hard boil like normal, then mix the yokes like you would for a traditional recipe, but add some red horseradish to it. Then lay them in the smoker for about an hour. FANTASTIC. I had a post of these that I made several months ago, but it appears is was lost when we had our site meltdown.

    Well worth trying bowtie.
    I like to use hickory on mine since I'm not such a fan of mesquite but they do pick up the light smoke flavor like Dawn said. I leave mine in for about 2 1/2hrs.

    Yup... 2 1/2-3 hours at around 225-250. I use hickory and they get a very nice light flavor. If you are worried about any possible leakage I put mine in a foil "boat", keeps them from rolling around and if one cracks it stays in the foil. [​IMG]

    I would definately second using them to make deviled eggs when they are done smoking.... its really, really good!

    Some do some don't. I take them right from the fridge to the smoker and have never had a problem.

    I've gotten the best results soft-boiling them first.

    I agree, mesquite is my preferred wood too, it gives a nice light smokey flavor. I used fruit woods, nut I prefer the heavier mesquite flavor.

    i have done em several times they are great a little discolored but tasty.
    devel them works the best.
    hickory works fine but i like apple[​IMG]
     
  14. I did mine for about 3 hours @ 225 degrees, but I found them to be a bit overcooked. I'm going to try another batch tomorrow and I'm going to smoke them for about 2 hours at the same temp and see what the difference is.
