Grill Your Eggs For Superior Smoky Flavor
Versions of grilled and smoked eggs have been around for centuries and the methods of making them vary considerably. Some take minutes while others take two or more hours.
Grilled eggs don’t need to be pre-boiled since they take only about 10 minutes to make. Just heat the grill, place raw eggs on the grate, close the cover, and let them sizzle away.
Peek under the hood occasionally to check for cracked shells, and rotate about halfway through to prevent overcooking. When the egg can easily spin, you’ll know they’re done.
Once your eggs are off the grill, remove their shells as soon as possible, or slide them into a cold-water bath to prevent them from cooking any further.
You can also smoke eggs by putting raw eggs into a wood-fired smoker and letting them slowly smoke for over two hours, or give them a head start on the stovetop by boiling them.
Hard boil the eggs, then peel off the shells and place them one by one in the outdoor smoker. Smoke them for 10 to 15 minutes at 225 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid overcooking.
You can also cook eggs in pans on the grill. Use a muffin tin for egg bites and cook for three to eight minutes, or use a cast-iron skillet for an omelet or scrambled eggs.
