Eggs! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Eggs!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Eggs and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!
InstructionsThe egg shells are air permeable so the smoke can pass through the egg shell, however a lot of store bought eggs are sprayed with a solution that prevents this, so you have to wash and dry your eggs before smoking them. Place them directly on the grates of your grill or smoker at 225° and let them smoke for an hour. After the first hour flip them over to the other side and smoke for another hour. Be careful not to let your smoker get above 250° as this might cause the eggs to burst and you will have a mess in your grill or smoker.
So, Will it BBQ?
From a standpoint of did this give us a cooked egg like a hard boiled one, the answer is yes. However, our goal was to see if this would be an improvement on the traditional hard boiled egg and sadly the answer is not really, no. There was a very little amount of smoke that was picked up but it was not enough to justify letting them smoke to 2 hours. We thought we might not have gotten enough of the spray off of the egg shell to let the smoke through the shell but there was actually a smoke ring in the egg so the smoke did penetrate it just did not make much of an impression. Hey, they can’t all be winners!

@Jonathon Was there another thread or topic that addressed glycerine and using a vacuum tumbler?
@doug7777 142 degrees is a stalling point where the fat starts to render. I used to get very impatient and start cranking up the heat to get the INT to go up. That usually results in burning all the fat out of the snack sticks. Be patient. The temp will eventually start to rise again. Once it does, it will continue to do so at a steady pace. I have had snack sticks in the smoker for 24 hours or better due to having 25lbs hanging at one time. I have also had 4-5 lbs at a time in the smoker only take 4-5 hours total.
@DeerSlayer i guess i never replied to this thread even though i was mentioned! Sorry about that!
Glad things are turning out great! Just an FYI you could probably just stuff right away into casings, it will make it much eaiser for you then after 6 hours then resting again! Also im a huge supporter of sodium erthorbate as an accelerator. It will make your snack sticks look better and last longer!
