How to make smoked deviled eggs
Boil the your eggs. If you haven’t already, hard boil your eggs. I like to follow this method for how to make hard boiled eggs, and I recommend using white shelled eggs because they’re easier to peel.
Smoke them. Preheat your smoker to its lowest setting – or a smoke boost setting if you have one. Then, peel your eggs and put them on a grill pan.
Put the in your smoker and let them smoke for 30 – 60 minutes, depending on how smoky you want them to be.
Remove the eggs from the smoker and let them cool completely before handling.
Mix the filling. Slice your eggs and pop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Then mash them with a fork and add your filling ingredients. Keep mashing until everything is mixed well.
Next, using a hand mixer to whip the filling until it’s smooth and fluffy. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste.
Fill the eggs. Transfer the filling to a piping bag – or a ziplock with the corn trimmed – and fill the eggs. When you’re done, garnish with fresh chives and a sprinkle of paprika (use smoked paprika if you have it!)
