Smoked Eggs

 

Happy Monday, y’all!  I hope you had perfectly lovely weekends.  I helped play host for the Humane Society Bingo Friday night, and we cooked a couple of badazz rib eyes from Jones Meats Friday night afterwards.  Saturday and Sunday we laid low, I had a girls night, Wheat had a guys’  night.  I tackled some projects that I’m really excited about and prepped for an exciting couple of weekends coming up!  I can’t wait to share more.  And I am ants-in-my-pants excited for this Friday’s post.  I think you’ll love it as much as I do!  But on that note, be prepared for a little radio silence this week on the blog.  With all these projects, a Board meeting, a Vino Van Gogh evening at the Firehouse Art Gallery, and prepping for a weekend of a new (to me) hobby/art form (basket weaving!) I have my week cut out for me.  But follow me on Instagram or Twitter if you want to keep up with it all!

But before I get ahead of myself, look at this.

Thus, I can’t take credit for today’s post, really.  One of my favorite food bloggers, Cannelle Vanille, posted the picture above on Instagram and I was instantly smitten.  I knew the next time Wheat fired up his smoker, this was going to happen.  So a couple weekends ago, Wheat got a boston butt to smoke, and I boiled eggs and patiently waited to commandeer his smoker.

Just your garden variety supermarket eggs here.  Boil them shy of hard boiled (I figured they would cook a bit more in the smoker).  Following my steps for a perfect hard boiled egg, I boiled them for 8 minutes instead of 10.  Then, crack the shells all around – I will do more cracking next time.  This was an experimental smoking.

Once Wheat got the smoker really going, I placed the eggs around the boston butt.

Cannelle Vanille said that she smoked hers for 5 minutes at a high smoke, but I was piggy-backing along with the boston butt at medium smoke (pun intended, fo sho).  Thus, I smoked these eggs at medium smoke for about 20 minutes.

They came out almost perfect.  As in, a couple of the yolks had a bit of a greenish tint to them.  So what?  They weren’t perfect.  But they are perfectly smokey and delicious!

I wish I could say I have made something fabulous with them, because I had grand plans for smoked egg salad, smoked deviled eggs… the possibilities were exciting.  But I’ll be honest: I just ate them.  With some sriracha.  For breakfast.  Every day for a week.

I’d like to try this again and make a smoked egg salad, or smoked deviled eggs, or something else equally as tantalizing.  But they might not make it that far.  Any other ideas for what I should do with smoked eggs?  Or have you smoked eggs or any other random food items before?  Ya know, besides meat.  As always, all suggestions or ideas welcomed!

Until Next Time
