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.

Those eggs and fatties look stellar. Love the idea of smoked egg salad!

I'm relieved to see that I wasn't the only one OCD enough to note how centered the yolks were. I think Cook's Illustrated also mentioned shaking the eggs vigorously before boiling to get the yolks centered, in a recent issue.

Again it is demonstrated that keeping it simple (KISS principle) can produce a fun meal that appeals. Great job.
When you stop horsing around it is time to fire up the BBQ & Smoker

I've learned 2 new things in this thread. Firstly, Smoked boiled eggs! Never would of thought of that. I'll have to give that one a try someday.

Secondly, centered yolks! Gotta ask, why does it matter if the yolks are centered? I guess my free spirit has never even paid attention to that. I guess for some pretty deviled eggs it might be useful.

Always learning something new....
