Refrigerated eggs > cold tap water > bring to boil > kill the heat, cover pot and let sit
Boiled eggs are a great snack. If you want a gelled yolk, give it a shot of cold water before you cover it.
When I grill, I use wood chips for smoke. I'll soft boil eggs, then smoke them. They are very delicious. The smoke turns the egg white brown and leathery, but the center is still soft.
