Smoked Hard Boiled Eggs
Everyone has a “favorite” way to hard boil eggs. Use whatever method you prefer – they all work beautifully. Some recipes call for putting raw eggs on the smoker itself, but we find it leads to dry eggs which take ages to make.
Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are quick and easy to make, plus they’re extremely easy to peel.
To make hard boiled eggs on the stove, you’ll boil the eggs for approximately 10 minutes before giving them an ice bath. Check the recipe card below for the full instructions to make hard boiled eggs on the stove.
Excluding the time it takes to cook the eggs, you’re looking at 30-60 minutes, start to finish. Including the time it takes to cook the eggs via the stovetop method, you’re looking at 45-75 minutes.
As mentioned, this recipe is highly customizable so adjust to your personal preference. Here are some add-in ideas to get you thinking:
- Pickled Peppers
- Pickled Red Onions
- Pickled Mustard Seeds
- Fresh Dill
- Pickled Asparagus Garnish

Egg whites take on a ton of smoke, so keep the wood choice to a mild wood like apple, cherry or maple.
Energy Source – Charcoal, pellets, propane, etc.
Smoking Wood – Chunks, chips or pellets.
Smoker Box – You’ll need one to impart the delicious smoky flavor if using a gas grill. We’ve used this one from Amazon in the past.

Million Dollar Deviled Eggs – To make, just bake up some crispy bacon and crumble it over the top right before serving.
- Make the hard boiled eggs up to 3 days before constructing.
- Purchase the eggs a full week before you’ll be making them as it makes them easier to peel.
