Yes, Chris... I have a variety of needle valves here...left over from when I was fabricating ECB gas retrofits.

I was just wondering what You used...Thanks!

Good thinking on your smoke generator... ingenious! Cool Wink

3 hours is a little long. I usually go 2-2 1/2 hrs. max. Just off the smoker is like licking a ashtray, let it sit and it should be good.
Sorry, can't help with the eggs, never tried em.

Not sure what you're doing wrong. Maybe too much smoke for an egg. Question
Perhaps you could let them rest ..... just like the cheese. Confused

Here is my one and only attempt at smoking eggs ......

http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48864

Did you do un-cooked eggs, or boiled/peeled eggs?

Cool smoke Generator

For your smoked eggs try this

Ingredients:
4 ozs. Granulated Salt (non iodized) or Kosher Salt
2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
4 doz. Quail eggs (or 6-10 large chicken eggs), hard boiled and peeled.

Directions:
In a saucepan, cover the eggs with 1” cold water, and boil until the eggs are cooked.

Remove eggs from the heat, drain and plunge into ice cold water to cool. Peel eggs when they are cool enough to handle.

While the eggs are cooking, place the first three ingredients in a Ziploc bag (1 gallon size), and shake to mix all ingredients.

Next add the eggs that have been cooked and peeled, and shake until all eggs are coated evenly. Leaving the eggs in the bag, place them in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
I have experimented and find that you do need to brine quail eggs (10% salt) for about 1 hour. Hen eggs may need longer; I am talking about small eggs.

Remove eggs from the refrigerator, take them out of the Ziploc bag, and cold smoke eggs for 40 minutes, using your favorite wood.

thank you guys Very Happy
just thinking out loud here Confused because it's cold smoking there is no convection so the smoke stays longer in the smoker, so any creosote in the smoke as time to stick to the eggs/cheese.
1) add a fan to move the smoke faster though the smoker?
2) add a filter of some sort ie: wire wool in the end of the pipe to catch the creosote?

h4ppy-chris, I'm thinking the fan and filter are probably not needed.
Play around with it a little and adjust your times.

Chris:

I smoke cheese all the time. In my opinion, 3 hours is WAY
too long ...Should be more like 1 &1/2 hours-2 hours Max.

Take 'Em off...let 'em rest on the counter for about 6 hours,
uncovered. After that wrap 'em in plastic food wrap and stow 'em in the 'fridge for 10 days to two weeks. The longer they rest in the 'fridge, the better they taste.

Here's some cheese I did some time ago...











Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor, Dude! Wink

Best Regards,

Tony Very Happy

Well heres my version Very Happy

Got some pressure lock fittings from work and pipe.

You guys and gals, play with your pumps, hoses and tubes.
Mine takes 5 minutes to build, costs $0.00 and you're good to go.

Grab a #10 or coffee can. Knock or drill some holes in it.
I ran out of gas on the fish cooker, so had to use the torch to light it.



Great way to season and clean cast iron. Smoke baby, smoke.




Use the # of briquettes and lump to control your smoker temps. CI skillet is the damper.
Patent pending. Laughing

Maniac, the pump I have is made by second nature, the challenger 1 model, it's a 4 watt pump. I honestly don't even know how I aquired it. Embarassed It's been in the basement for years.
BTW, did you tell your boss you had to liberate some material? Razz

Jarhead, your set-up is working great for you. Very Happy
Sometimes building something is as much fun as using it though. Besides, you gotta do something while your waiting for bacon to cure and eggs to pickle. Wink
