  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika

  1. Add wood chips to grill according to manufacturer's directions. Place eggs on grill rack. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat until golden brown, 7-10 minutes. Cool slightly.
  2. Cut eggs lengthwise in half. Remove yolks, reserving whites. In a small bowl, mash yolks. Stir in Miracle Whip, mustard, salt, pepper and paprika. Spoon or pipe into egg whites. Top with additional paprika and, if desired, chopped parsley. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
Smoked Deviled Eggs Tips

How should you hard-boil the eggs?

You can boil the eggs in water, air-fry them or even slow-cook them. But that's not all—in fact, we share even more ways to prepare them in our guide to how to boil eggs.

What other garnishes can you put on smoked deviled eggs?

Bacon is never a bad idea (and our favorite bacon brand is a must-try)! Also consider minced fresh chives, caramelized red onions, crispy french-fried onions or even jalapenos for a kiss of heat. For additional ideas, pull inspiration from our collection of deviled egg recipes from celebrity chefs.

Can you make smoked deviled eggs ahead of time?

You bet! Smoked deviled eggs are a great make-ahead food for summer barbecues. Refrigerate them, covered, up to 1 day before serving. (Garnish them just before serving for the freshest look.) Want to work further ahead? You can boil your eggs up to 5 days in advance and keep them, unpeeled, in the fridge until you’re ready to prepare the recipe.
