Interesting. I wonder if we have to swirl them in the opposite direction north of the equator.
Alton Brown claims that putting the carton of eggs on its side (so eggs are on their side rather than standing on end) will also center the yolks. Being the lazy bastage that I am, I'd give that a try first.
These were for egg salad so it didn't matter. But I think that smoked eggs would make awesome deviled eggs so I might give that a try and then centering would be useful.
