    I set up the Kamado @ 175-200*.  Put 18 large raw eggs in elevated rack.  Smoked indirectly 1 hour to set eggs enough to insert thermometer through the shell of one egg.  I used Mulberry.  Continue till IT is 170*.  It only takes <1.5 hrs. so put the smoke to it pretty heavy.  Nice light tan smoke ring on egg whites.  They make great deviled eggs or just peel and eat.  Something different for Easter!

    That looks really good.

    I always Hard boil mine and then peel and smoke.

    It is the only way to make deviled eggs.
     
  4. Great color! I always steam, peel and cold smoke. They make great deviled eggs, pickled eggs and egg salad!

    My lady doesn't like med./strong smoked foods so I thought I would try a few smokes raw with shells on.  I'll try hardboiled with shells on cold smoked.  When it cools down I'll hard boil peel and cold smoke with cheese.  Do they need a little coating of oil to keep from drying during cold smoking without the shell?

    DR K,
    I do just what you are talking about boil\peel and put in with some cheese. I do not put anything on the eggs.

    Starting to get some cooler nights here I am going to have to pick up some cheese.

    Them there eggs are known as Pterodactyl eggs! Works good. I prefer to smoke peeled hard boiled eggs. Excellent in egg salad, potato salad, breakfast fatties, and of course deviled eggs!

    The eggs will pick up a little smoke flavor cooking them this way, but don't confuse the brown egg white with a smoke ring.  They will pick up the same color in your kitchen oven with no smoke.   Eggs cooked this way can be a PITA to peel. Have you tried the 300 minute eggs? You can Google them, they have a very distinct taste.

    I will be trying the 300 minute eggs.  Sound great!  I'll wait for the fall/winter when using the oven for 5 hrs. or use the Kamado anytime.
