I want to make an egg out of salt and then smoke it with some brisket so that it can be smashed tableside for a dramatic presentation any helpful hints on salt shells on techniques
The above recipe gives you the basic technic in salt shell making. Now, I would not think that cooking an egg in such a way will work. It takes at least 35 to 40 minutes to cook the shell. It means that your egg will be over cooked.
Saying that you could try to wrap your egg with some slices of smoked brisket and make sure to build a very thin layer of salt to reduce the cooking time to 15-20 minutes. Give it a try before hand to get the right timing.
Let me know how it works. I am interested to see if it works...
