    This probably isn't the right place to post this but I'm not sure where else to put it.

    Scotch eggs are usually nothing more than a peeled hard boiled egg wrapped in a layer of sausage, then rolled in bread crumbs and deep fried. But I would image you could cook them on a grill or in a smoker as well.

    Scotch eggs are awesome too!

  2. You got me wondering now. If you decide to try it let us know how it comes out.

    Pretty sure someone on here did a fattie but put the hard boiled eggs inside of it.
    Absolutely no reason you couldn't put them in the smoker, though I would try without the breadcrumbs first.

  6. IMHO it is better to soft boil the eggs then pack with your force meat and bread/fry.

    this way the yolk is still palatable.

    Hat tip to 'The Dude Abides' for the link.
  9. [​IMG] Alright, alright... point heard.

    How, though, could you beat that fried crunch on the outer later of the egg?

    I've used quail eggs for these before and they are a real crowd-pleaser.

    In order to stay true-to-form here you would have to take care of par-cooking the egg in the smoker, then packing your force meat around it and what would you use to give it that fry-like crunch?

    These little guys are near and dear to me so I think I'll give it a go .. solely in the smoker... but how to replicate the crunch??

    Corn flakes maybe like with fried ice cream?
    Roll on a layer of something at the end and finish on the grill?

    Jon, you'll have to start hanging out at the daughter's where the smoker is![​IMG] Sounds good fried, too.

    We won an open event with them once. Hard boiled egg wrapped in Jimmy Dean sausage then rolled in Texas BBQ Rub and smoked hot and fast and then we drizzled maple syrup over them. It was an early turn in so I guess they wanted breakfast. [​IMG]

    Wow, I didn't think there would be any replies to this thread let alone two pages of replies!

    I guess I'll have to try a few Scotch Eggs in the smoker when I try a Fatty!
