Smoked Hard Boiled Eggs
When Jason told me he was going to smoke eggs I raised my eyebrows a little bit.
He assured me they would be delicious and he was planning on making them into Smoked Deviled Eggs.
He LOVES Deviled Eggs, but so do I was so I was on board with this.

Smoked eggs are perfect for Easter! I love the new flavor this gives an egg and I think you will too!
Why do you place the eggs directly in an ice bath?
Placing the eggs in the ice bath will make them easier to peel. One of the biggest complaints about smoked eggs is they are difficult to peel. This little trick will make it easier!
Something else to keep in mind is that extremely fresh hard-boiled eggs are difficult to peel. The shell doesn’t cleanly and picking off part of the shell leaving gouges on the surface of the egg. But as eggs grow older, their shells peel more easily.
