What’s your favorite bite at Easter? I have to say, I have a soft spot for deviled eggs especially if they are smoked! They have so much more flavor.
They start with these easy Smoked Eggs and then we mashed them up with the traditional deviled egg ingredients like mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and seasonings. They are so simple, but the flavor is over the top amazing.
You’ll never go back to eating a plain old deviled egg again after trying this recipe!
Ingredients for Smoked Deviled Eggs
- Smoked eggs
- White vinegar
- Yellow mustard
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
- Smoked paprika or Sweet & Smokey Rub (optional)
Easy to Make!
The first step is to make your hard boiled egg on the smoker.
Preheat your smoker to 325 degrees F according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Place the eggs directly on the grates of your smoker. Close the lid of your smoker and smoke for 30 minutes at 325 degrees F.
Remove the cooked eggs from the smoker and place into an ice bath immediately. Chill completely.
Reduce heat on your smoker to 180 degrees F.
Peel the eggs and return them to the grill. Smoke for 30-45 minutes depending on the amount of smoke flavor you want in your eggs.
Now it’s time to make those Deviled Eggs!
First you want to take your eggs and slice them in half, then scoop out the yolks, placing the yolks in a mixing bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Spoon or pipe the filling into the egg white. Sprinkle with smoke paprika or our favorite Sweet & Smokey Rub.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
What wood chips to use?
We recommend a mild wood chip like alder or maple wood when smoking the egg. If you like a stronger taste then you would want to use a mesquite wood chip.
How far in advance can I make deviled eggs?
We personally don’t recommend assembling these in advance. If you want to make them up in advance we recommend keeping your whites and filling separate. The day you want to enjoy them simply pipe the filling into the eggs white.
Why are my hard-boiled eggs hard to peel?
Often times fresh eggs are more difficult to peel than eggs that are older. Purchasing the eggs a week ahead of time will make them easier to peel. Also, make sure to cool the eggs in an ice water bath after you cook them.
Can I peel eggs the day before?
Absolutely! You can peel eggs three days ahead of time, giving you less to do the day you’re serving them. I wouldn’t assemble them day before. They are easy to make and best when they are fresh. You can make the filling ahead of time, but store in separately.
How long will they last?
Leftovers will keep in the refrigerate three to four days.
Optional Add-In Ideas
- Instead of paprika try using our Sweet & Smokey Rub.
- Make some of our Smoked Bacon and crumble it on top of the deviled eggs.
- A traditional topping to add is chopped chives.
- Mix in some chopped pickles into your yolk mixture.
- Love spice? Chop up some diced jalapenos and add into the yolk mixture.
