    These are almost too pretty to eat. [​IMG] I put a dozen extra large eggs on the brinkmann today while I was smoking some cured pork chops. I used mostly oak with a little bit of lump. These are so good! Temp was about 230-250 and they were smoked about 3 hrs.



    Peeled and cut in half after cooling.



    They turned out to be the best batch yet and I've done at least 6 dozen so far. You could really taste the smoke this time verses any of the other times, not sure if it's the wood or the method. I will do a repeat smoke in a couple of days to see if I get the same results. These eggs disappear fast here.

    I stated in the post "They turned out to be the best batch yet and I've done at least 6 dozen so far. You could really taste the smoke this time verses any of the other times" It's at the very end of the post.

    Dawn those look awesome so nice and brown. You said you could taste the smoke more this time maybe because the type of wood. Oak is a strong flavored wood. so I think I have a smoke planned for tonight if so I'm going to try them and I'll let you know how they come out.[​IMG][​IMG]

    You got me hooked too Dawn...just took a dozen out of the Gosm, and they look magnificent....mahogany brown. I can hardly wait to cool them down and try one. It did scare the s&%t out of me though, when one exploded about an hour into the smoke LOL.

    Try softboiling them first.

    I put them in a cold pan of water, enough to cover the eggs. Turn on heat to high, and once it starts a rolling boil, take them out and put them in the smoker. They'll never explode that way.

    No neeed to boil them first, just keep them off the hot spots. Works every time.
