How to Cook Easter Eggs on a Big Green Egg
Before you put your eggs on a Big Green Egg to finish cooking, you will want to soft boil them first. Place the eggs in boiling water with a slotted spoon for 3 ½ to 4 minutes. Set the temperature on your Big Green Egg to 200 degrees. After you have soft boiled your eggs, you will want to set up your Big Green Egg for indirect cooking by using a place setter. Smoke the eggs at 200 degrees for 45 minutes. Once the eggs have cooled, you will be able to decorate them however you wish. Besides the fun of hiding them, your Easter eggs will have a delicious smoked flavor as well.
