Smoking eggs

I read on here someone posted about smoking whole eggs and getting basically the effect of a hard boiled egg that was smoked. I tried to do this yesterday with a dozen eggs. 275 dome indirect around 30 mins. They were not done at all. Went another 30 and were about soft cooked. My wife got impatient and boiled them. I think it was @cubbs or @double that did this. I want to make smoked deviled eggs next Sunday for Easter. We made egg salad which is awesome but I thin it could have been smokier without the boil.

Proof it happened

    Have you tried that @Richared_Fl ? I've seen it and wanted to try it. For somre reason I think @Dyal_SC has done them in the past.

    In the bit that's been going around Facebook lately with doing hard boiled eggs in a muffin tin in the oven, they do them 30 minutes at 325, FWIW.  I've never done this, but is any smoke flavor really going to end up on the egg itself? Smoke flavor is predominantly on the surface of whatever you are smoking.

    I have smoked quail eggs out of the can the same way.  Saw SR show the other day and it looked real easy for the eggs on the BGE

    @the_naked_whiz that's what I though at well. I am going to hard boil a few eggs tonight and chill them. Then tomorrow I will peel and cold smoke. For about 2 hours. Thanks for all the help guys I am trying to do setting new to me here.

    The scientist in me says you should pull an egg after x minutes and taste it, after y minutes, etc. until you think you have the right amount of smoke.   I've never smoked cheese for 2 hours and gotten a whole lotta smoke flavor.

    Perfect I will start tasting at hour 2 and make my wife do the tasting about every 30 mins until it is right. I know if I do the tasting I will over smoke them because it is the perfect time of year to sit out by the egg and drink

    I followed my neighbor to a local BBQ cook-off a few weeks back. He had smoked devil eggs for his "open category". Started off already cooked and cold. Put 24 in a foil pan, heavy smoke and low temp for 45 min. Removed cut in half, prepped the yokes with mayo, mustard, and other secret stuff then sprinkled with rub. 7 to turn in and the other 41 gone in like 60 seconds. Man these are great! Nice smokey flavor and not to heavy.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    I don't remember doing them before, but my brain forgets things sometimes. I don't think I did though.
