Everyone knows how to hard boil an egg in water and no one, and I mean no one, will be impressed that you know how to do that. No one says, “Hey, look at this awesome hardboiled egg I made!” If they do, probably time to make new friends.
But, I know a way to change the conversation so you don’t sound like a total amateur…smoke your eggs! Yeah, you can make “hardboiled” eggs on the smoker. And more importantly, they’re awesome!

6-12 Eggs (you can do more; I did 12)
Step 1: Preheat your grill or smoker to 225 degrees.
Step 2: Place your eggs directly on the grill racks and smoke for 2 hours. Reduce the time for a soften egg.
Step 3: Remove from the grill, let cool completely before peeling.
NOTE #1: The more smoke produced, the smokier the egg.
NOTE #2: Do not let your smoker fluctuate drastically in temperature as it will crack the shell of the egg.
