The eggs get infused with smoke when smoked on a grill or smoker. They are hard-boiled eggs that are easiest to make and there is no reason they cannot be prepared on the grill instead. All you need is your favorite wood chips for smoking.

How To Make

Step 1: Preheat Smoker

Making smoked eggs isn’t difficult. Start making the recipe by preheating your pellet smoker to 325ºF. But make sure to thoroughly clean your grill before smoking anything. I will be using cherry wood chips because I love the cherry smoky flavour. You can use the wood chips and smoker you are comfortable cooking at. Make sure to use indirect heat.

Step 2: Smoke Eggs In Shells

Take the raw eggs and place them directly on the grill of the smoker for smoking. Allow them to smoke for 35 minutes. In thirty minutes, you will a consistency similar to boiled eggs. The eggshells will turn a little yellow due to smoking. If you see small brown spots on the eggshells, no worries! It’s normal.

Step 3: Remove Eggs & Place In Ice Bath

When 30 minutes of initial grilling are completed, remove the eggs and place them in ice water. Let the eggs enjoy that ice bath for almost 10 minutes. When the eggs are cooled, peel them. We give an ice bath to the eggs for stopping the process of cooking in them, and it also makes peeling easier.

Step 4: Reduce Heat To 175ºF – 180ºF

After peeling the eggs, place them again over the grill. Make sure the temperature is lowered to 175ºF to 180ºF. Smoke the eggs for another 35 minutes. This time is enough to give eggs a delicious smokey flavour and get a crisp golden brown colour on them.

Some people might like fully hard-boiled eggs. For that, you can keep the eggs on the grill for almost around 1.5 or 2 hours. But be informed that grilling for this long will make the outer crust of the egg dry and might get a bit rubbery.

Step 5 – Garnish & Serve

Take the smokey eggs out, place them on a cooking sheet or cooking tray and slice each egg into an equal half. Garnish them with some salt, pepper, finely chopped parsley, or oregano. You are now ready to serve smoked eggs as a side dish with the main course like Smoked New York Steak, Smoked T-bone Steak, or a snack at a tea party.

Tips For Making The Best Taste Eggs

  • Save Your Leftovers. If some of the eggs are left and are not eaten we have some more ideas to use them. You can make smokey Deviled eggs with a tangy and delicious paste filling.
  • Colour. Your eggs will likely turn yellow throughout the smoking, but don’t worry this is totally normal! The darker the colour, the more smoke flavour your smoked devilled eggs will have.
  • Pair With Main Course. Pair with Reverse Sear Steak, or Smoked Lamb Chops and a Smoked Rack of Lamb to enjoy a perfect complete meal.

Our first beer pick is none other than a robust Stout. With its deep, roasted flavors and hints of coffee and chocolate, a Stout brings a beautiful contrast to the smoky, creamy goodness of your Smoked Eggs.
