    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!

    Eggs on the smoker

    Prep Time

    10 Minutes

    Cook Time

    2 Hours

    Ingredients

    Eggs

    Utensils Needed

    Smoker

    Instructions

    The 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!

    @parksider Thanks for the follow up!! I was really watching the internal temperature when they were in the rolling (HOT) water and making sure to pull them right at the 165. And then right into the ice water bath.

    @Jonathon Yes Jonathon-it’s in your head 🙂
    @mikeihuntr My only advice is to keep the water around 170F, not a rolling boil. If the casing are too tight they WILL explode then you have a really big pot of bad soup! A nice simmer is the way to go, take them out 155-160 and into a water bath. Here is a pic, we just use the turkey fryer with the basket. It makes it really easy to remove from the water and rinse. I will also recommend keeping a temp probe right in the meat you can see the wire going into the water. Good luck!!

    This was a big topic of conversation because we do freeze/thaw/process/refreeze venison and pork, never an issue. As a former restaurateur and certified food handler here is what Dept of Agriculture has to say. I’ll defer to the experts:

    Author: Alice Henneman, MS, RDN

    The U. S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) advises:

    Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.

    If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly, according to USDA.

    DO NOT thaw meat at room temperature, such as on the kitchen counter.

    Safety will depend on whether the raw product was handled properly before it was frozen, refrozen shortly after it was thawed, cooked to a safe temperature when it is eaten and handled safely if there are any leftovers.
