Smoked deviled eggs are a show stopping twist on an old classic. Hard smoked eggs serve as the base for a tangy, and slightly spicy, filling. Topped with pickled jalapenos and a sprinkling of homemade BBQ seasoning, these smoked deviled eggs are a next-level flavor upgrade that you’ve simply got to try!
Smoked Deviled Eggs Instructions
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!
Once you’ve got your eggs smoked, it’s time to start making deviled eggs! 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, 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!

Smoked Deviled Eggs Recipe
- 7 smoked eggs instructions in recipe notes
- 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
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.
Add in the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, BBQ rub, and pickled jalapenos to the egg yolks. Whisk vigorously to combine and fluff up the yolks.
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.
