This was my first attempt at smoking eggs. I had a total of 60 eggs. I boiled and peeled 36. I decided to wrap a few of the peeled eggs in bacon, and put in a few peeled on their own. These went on the middle rack position.


The 24 remaining eggs (uncooked) went on the top rack. I pierced only 12 of these to see if there would be a difference.


The ambient temperature was slightly above freezing, with hardly any wind.
I wanted to keep the smoker temp in check to avoid the eggs exploding.
I may have left these on too long (2½ hours) as I was waiting for the camera battery to charge.




The following photos were cross cuts of the boiled and peeled eggs. They shrunk a bit, but were not bad. They were dry, but a little hot sauce on them solved that. The bacon wrapped ones may be a good starter for a breakfast fatty.Smile



I did not notice much smoke flavour in the ones cooked in the shell. BTW, none of them exploded. And the pierced ones did peel easier, as I kinda suspected. I probably could have taken everything off 30-40 minutes earlier.

I then pickled them. The big jar contains just boiled and peeled eggs.


Still plenty of fuel left in the ECB, so I threw on some pork tenderloins.



In honour of St. Patrick's day, I enjoyed a couple of these. Laughing


3 hours, removed, wrapped and rested in cooler. Delicious!



Thanks for listening.

Mark

It has been nearly 2 months since this experiment.

I cracked open a few jars to sample.

The first was a smoked egg in shell. There was not much smoke flavour at all. However, it was a good pickled egg.



I then tried the bacon wrapped egg. NOT very good. I do not recommend putting cooked bacon in pickling brine - who knew? Confused Wink



The final sample was the pre-boiled and peeled egg. This was very good. It had a nice smokey flavour. I was pleasantly surprised.



I am glad I tried it, but I'm not too sure I would try pickling smoked eggs again. However, I would still consider smoking eggs again.

:jawdrop:

Are you familiar with scotch eggs? This looks like a perfect base for a BBQ'ed scotch egg.

EDIT: what was your pickling brine?

Wow, dude, those Scotch eggs look good. I have never tried them, but I am now intrigued.

Regarding my brine, click on "Pickled Eggs" in my signature, that is my pickled egg journey, which of course, is open to interpretation. Wink Laughing
