How to Smoke Eggs on a Camp Chef Smoker

From pellet grills, flat-top grills, cooking systems, ovens, propane grills, smokers, and various grilling accessories, it has been supplying us with quality products. A Camp Chef smoker is one of the excellent smokers currently available in the market.

What you will need to smoke eggs on a Camp Chef Smoker?

  • Eggs: 6 raw eggs with shells (You can vary the number according to the space available on the grill or your requirements).
  • Camp Chef Smoker.
  • Wood Chips.

Time Needed: 10 minutes for preparing, 2-3 hours for smoking.

Directions for Smoking

Let’s check how to smoke the eggs first, and then we will look at some of the recipes for making smoked deviled eggs.

Step 1: Preheat your Camp Chef smoker to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and set it up for indirect cooking. If you are using a propane grill, you will need to turn off some burners. For pellet or charcoal grills, you will have to arrange the coals on one side and eggs on the other. You can use a thermometer to check the temperature of your smoker.

Step 2: Add some wood chips. Follow the directions on the packing for adding the wood chips. We suggest you don’t soak the wood chips as soaking them will not make any difference, and it will just interfere with the temperature of your smoker. For a strong flavor, go with mesquite. For mild and light flavors, pick alder or maple wood chips. You can also use apple or hickory.

Step 3: Once the temperature has been achieved, wood chips added, place the eggs on the grate. Turn off the lid of the smoker and cook for 2 hours. You will need to maintain a constant temperature.

You may need to add more coals and wood chips if the temperature falls. Ensure that the smoker doesn’t undergo sharp temperature changes as it can cause the eggs to burst. To infuse more flavors in the eggs, increase the number of wood chips.

Step 4: Remove the eggs from the grill after 2 hours. Your eggs will be hard-boiled by now. Let them cool completely before you start peeling them off.

That’s it. You have just smoked 6 eggs for yourself.
