Smoked Deviled Eggs

If you’re a fan of deviled eggs and you love BBQ, you’re doing yourself a disservice by not making smoked deviled eggs. I know it sounds odd, but the extra time in the smoke gives these eggs some insane flavor that you’ve got to experience for yourself. Add in all my tasty ingredients for the filling, and you’re set for a major flavor party in your mouth.

The key to any great smoked deviled egg is pretty obvious: the smoked eggs! I’ve written a detailed recipe for smoking the perfect egg on my How To Make Smoked Eggs post. I recommend giving that a thorough reading so you can get these smoked deviled eggs off on the right foot!

Simply follow those instructions prior to making the filling and assembling your eggs.

Ingredients for Smoked Deviled Eggs

We all know it’s the filling that makes the deviled egg. I’m quite partial to the filling in these deviled eggs because it has a bit of everything for everyone. It’s savory, spicy, and a tad bit sweet. Here’s what you’ll need to pick up at the store to make these eggs:

  • 7 smoked eggs (check out the link above for this process and recipe)
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon pickled jalapenos, diced
  • 2 teaspoons stone ground coarse mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Best Sweet Rub 
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 12 additional slices of pickled jalapenos (for garnish)

How to Make Smoked Deviled Eggs

Once you’ve got your eggs smoked, it’s time to start making the filling! Everybody and their grandmother has the absolute best method for deviled egg filling. I happen to think mine is the best as well, and it all comes down to achieving the perfect balance of flavors. You’ve got to have creamy mayonnaise to moisten and smooth out the yolks. You need to have a little extra spice from the mustard. And finally every deviled egg needs some good acidity.

Most people use pickles in their deviled eggs, but I decided to punch up the flavor and use pickled jalapenos. If you buy the mild jalapenos, you really won’t notice any more heat than if you’d just used pickles, but you’ll get that nice flavor from the peppers. To garnish, I like an extra slice of jalapenos so everybody knows exactly what they are getting in to. I also like to sprinkle with my Homemade BBQ Sweet Rub for that classic paprika color with a smoky kick!

Ingredients
 

  • 7 smoked eggs (instructions in recipe notes)

Filling

  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 Teaspoons stone ground coarse mustard
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Homemade BBQ Sweet Rub (link in recipe notes)
  • 1 Tablespoon pickled jalapenos (diced)
  • 12 slices pickled jalapenos (for garnish)

Instructions

  • Prep the eggs. After you have smoked your eggs, you are ready to fill them. Slice the 7 hard smoked eggs in half. Gently scoop the yolks out into a medium mixing bowl. You can eat or discard the two egg whites that look the most beat up. You need the additional yolk in the filling to make the deviled eggs nice and full.
  • Make the yolk filling. Add in the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, BBQ rub, and pickled jalapenos to the egg yolks. Whisk vigorously to combine and fluff up the yolks. 
  • Fill the eggs. Use a spoon to fill each egg white with about 1 Tablespoon of the yolk mixture. Top with a sliced pickled jalapeno for each egg and then sprinkle them all with additional BBQ rub. Serve chilled.
