Smoked Jalapeno Eggs

Here it a treat for you pepperheads. For years I have been putting hardboiled eggs in with my jalapenos. In a week or so they start to turn green and pick up the flavor of the jalapenos. Love them… Then I got the idea of smoking the eggs from Brian Crane so thought I would try that.

Well it took a few dozen eggs before I got it but when I did all I can say is “Giddy Up GO”. They were so good. Then I dropped about 10 of the eggs along with a few handfuls of peeled garlic cloves in a gallon jar of jalapenos for a week or so. Came back and tried an egg and some of the garlic. GREAT!!! They had picked up the flavors of the peppers. Now the big surprise, the jalapenos had also picked up the sweet smoky flavor of the eggs!!! OFF THE HOOK!!!

Smoked Jalapeno Eggs

A Pellet Grill Recipe

Directions: Smoked Jalapeno Eggs

Instead of dumping the eggs in water and boiling, we took advantage of our Green Mountain Grill/Smoker. Why not? Ken smoked some jumbo eggs with some of Lumberjacks new “Lumber Jill” Italian Blend garlic wood pellets adding a nice smoky garlic flavor to our eggs. He smoked them for 2 hours at 225 degrees (107c).

When I pulled them I then ran them under cold water for a quick cool down. This helps with peeling later. I found that if you don’t peel them for a few days you get a nice smoky flavor in the eggs. If you peel and eat one now you’ll see that you can’t taste much smoke.

Cooking Directions: Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Set the temperature to 450 degrees and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick cleaning burn.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 225 degrees (107c). Place your eggs directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 2 hours or so. Then pull them and do a cold rinse.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
