Default Sausage 'n Eggs (with Pr0n)

I suppose most of you would call this a naked fatty, but 'sausage' sounded better to me for the title. The eggs are hard boiled that I wanted to smoke to make egg salad. And both of these are firsts for me! Hard to believe I've never smoked a fatty before and based on results, these won't be the last.

Started with


and put them on the top rack of my mini-WSM



I started with about half a chimney of briquettes left over from a previous smoke and threw a couple chunks of apple wood in for smoke flavor. The eggs were nicely colored up so they came off at about 25 minutes



Fatties took a little longer. I tried to take them off at 160° but they bled on the plate so they went back on til they hit 169°.



They took on a really nice smoke flavor, even though they are heavily spiced. I'd like to try hickory for the fatties but I'm entirely satisfied with apple for the hard boiled eggs.



I made the egg salad a few minutes ago. It was a really simple recipe (mayo, salt, pepper, chpped celeryleaves in lieu of parsley) and the smoke flavor really came through. It was really good.

I have to add props to my mini-WSM. I probably wouldn't fire up the big smoker for something like this, but half a chimney of charcoal in the mini and the results are great!

Luck always helps.

I followed Alton Brown's directions to start with eggs in cold water, bring to a light boil, turn off the heat and cover for 15 minutes. Then chill the eggs with cold water (AB uses ice water) to stop further cooking. It seemed to work well.

Twitch, American yolks are afraid of being too far left or too far right, generally speaking.

Thanks mate.
Sounds simpler than me standing and swirling the water.
Cheers.

that sounds more like a poached egg to me...you know he's talking about putting the eggs in the water with shell still on, right?

never heard that...of course, I never really paid that much attention to my yolks to know whether they hung left or right, either
