Section 3: Steps to Mastering the Art and Skill of Egg Smoking for Delicious Recipes
By following these steps, you will be on your way to mastering the fascinating art and skill of smoking eggs and preparing excellent, delicious recipes to delight everyone in your household, your family and friends:
1. Perfect the Skill of Egg Cooking. - First of all, you want to come as close as possible to cooking an egg to perfection. Eggs should never be overdone, but they often are. By examining an egg after boiling, you can determine whether or not it has been over-cooked. If you can see any green hues around the yolk, the egg is definitely overdone and will not have its full taste.
2. Hard-boil Eggs Properly. - Because eggs that are smoked in their shells will have only a thin, lightly smoked taste, it is best to smoke eggs without their shells. The best way to boil eggs is to place them in a pan and cover them with water. Heat them on the stove until the water reaches the boiling point, and let them boil for seven minutes.
Then place the eggs in very cold water. To make removing the egg shells easy, store the eggs in your fridge for one week before you boil them. Take care to leave them boiling for only seven minutes to guard against the green tinged ring around the boiled yolk, which indicates overcooking and reduced flavor.
3. Use a Smoker with "Cold" Smoking Option. - For best results, use a smoker that has a "cold" food smoking option. When using an electric smoker, turn it on high heat for about 20 minutes or until you see good volumes of smoke.
At this point, turn the heat control off. Dry wood chips are best for use with an electric smoker, and with good quality ventilation, these chips will keep smoking until they turn to embers.
4. Enjoy Benefits of an Electric Smoke Smoke-Hollow Unit. - With use of this type of electric smoker unit, you will not need to be concerned about using up your LP gas supply. Since this smoker design is constructed with double walls, the heat stays in the unit's interior where it is generated.
You will smoke with the full capacity of hot temperature produced by the 1,500-watt heating element for your food smoking projects. Just include the wood chips of your choice to get an authentic, thoroughly smoked BBQ aroma and enticing flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Smoke a Hard Boiled Egg?
The first step to smoke an egg is to hard boil it. Then, preheat the smoker and place the eggs (in their shell) about 1-inch apart. After a few hours on the grill, the shells will be dark brown and the insides will be smoke-flavored and ready to eat.
Should You Hot Smoke or Cold Smoke Eggs?
Some people like to cold smoke their eggs while others hot-smoke them at temperatures ranging from 225 to 350 degrees F. Since the eggs are already fully cooked, the choice is completely up to you. The cold smoke process will take longer, but it will infuse more pure smoke into your eggs. The hot smoking process will take less time and create a stronger flavored smoke.
Can You Make Deviled Smoked Eggs?
Yes, once your eggs are smoked they make excellent deviled eggs! You can treat the smoked eggs the same way you would treat hard boiled eggs and use them for deviled eggs, egg salad, or add them to potato salad.
How Long Do Smoked Eggs Last?
When stored in their shells, smoked eggs will last for up to two weeks in the refrigerator. Once they are peeled, they should be eaten within 24 hours to preserve their fresh flavor and taste.
How Long Does it Take to Hard Boil an Egg?
The most effective way to hard boil an egg is to gently lower it into already boiling water. Then, set a timer for 12 minutes and wait. You can do less time if you’re looking for a runny yolk - 8 minutes will make a soft boiled egg - but 12 minutes will firmly set the yolk. Then, remove the egg to a bowl filled with ice and water to stop the cooking process.
