Smoked Bacon & Eggs

My Egg was still hot after a cook so I decided to throw on some eggs. I took them out of the container, rinsed them with cold water and threw them right on the Egg. 

They smoked for approx 30 minutes. (I sliced a sacrificial egg at the 25 minute mark and they needed a little more time) The yolks should be a bright yellow. 

After the ice bath, they were cracked, peeled and sliced in half. The yolks were carefully removed and combined in a mixture containing mayo, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, hot sauce, paprika, cayenne, chives, finely chopped crispy bacon with salt, pepper and @MeatChurch's new Bacon BBQ rub. 

The eggs were filled with the mixture and garnished with a drop of hot sauce, a piece of crispy bacon and dusted with more of the BBQ rub. 

You could definitely pick up on the hickory smoke flavor. Friends and family loved this appetizer!

    Very nice Craig.  As usual the presentation is over the top.  I love deviled eggs but I am usually too impatient to make them and end up making egg salad. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Very interesting. Looks amazing. I love deviled eggs. 

    I wonder if could just make regular deviled eggs and then smoke them a little

    I would think that they would turn out overcooked?

    cold smoke them after hard boiling, take the shell off. Cold smoke for 90 minutes = change your life.

    Yeah, just use an amazing smoker or something like that for a cold smoke effect.  I have done this before and it came out well.

    Looks awesome!  You must've been inspired by @Nuke1855 .  He made these right before you made yours the other day.  Posted these up on IG like a day or so before you did.  Very similar... Even down to the Sriracha.   ;)  Nice job!

    Mine were actually done 2 weeks ago. Just waiting in the @MeatChurch
    rub release. Thanks though. 
  • I can't make deviled eggs, cause I eat deviled eggs way faster than I can possibly construct them lol. These look awesome, I will definitely try to make these.

    Either way, looks great like I said.  :). Both of y'all's posts make me wanna do smoked deviled eggs.  Think I'm gonna use avacado in mine like @Nuke1855.

    If you smoke after boiling and roll the eggs to crack the shells before the smoke, you get visually interesting patterns like this:



    I've seen multiple people do this over the past few years, especially around holidays when deviled eggs are typically served.

    Very cool! I'll try that next time.

    Looks great!  That rub sounds crazy good.

    I agree about the rub about to go get some. Hate to say it but the eggs look good Craig.

    So to @Big_Green_Craig and @hapster

    In your honest opinion, is the bacon rub gimmicky or is it something you look forward to using again?  I've heard mixed results about some of MC's rubs, but I've heard several people say Deez Nuts is awesome.  Is it up there with that?
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Like any seasoning, using it on the proper food yields the best results. Holy Cow is obviously a beef rub. Honey Hog is a pork rub. etc. Deez nuts is best on chicken imo. 

    Sampling the Bacon rub right out of the shaker tastes like I just finished eating a piece of bacon. I cooked with it on a burger and it tasted like there was bacon on the burger. 

    There are some other fairly new rub lines based locally: @PorkU and Lane's BBQ.  Lou from Pork U is a very talented rub blender and Egger. Ryan Lane from Lane's BBQ operates a local catering company. Both lines have very unique flavor profiles and are definitely worth the try.

    @NPHuskerFL has tried the Bacon. What were your thoughts, Blake?

    Very cool idea. I love me some deviled eggs. Nice work.

    Cool...thanks for the reply.  I think MC is winning already with a Bacon Rub, but its cool to hear it doesn't let down on giving meat bacon flavor.

    The only thing I'm upset about is that I got all of his rubs recently and this one wasn't out yet.  I don't think I'll be able to convince the mrs I need anymore rubs for a while.  @cazzy Deez nuts is an awesome rub on ribs.  I don't think I'll use anything but that on ribs for a long time. Sometimes I mix a little Swamp Venom or Honey Hot on them as well.  I would recommend picking up some meat church.
