Being no expert on smoking, I don't know whether the temperature you're shooting for is interior temp or not. 290 is way to hot if you want an egg yolk any way but petrified. Granted, the egg won't be at 290 for the entire hour, but I suspect it will be tough to get a jammy scotch egg on the smoker at those temperatures and times. It is possible to smoke way hotter for a much shorter (like 350 for 5 minutes) period of time? Like I said, I don't know much about smoking. Using a smoker, that is.
The custardy texture of the white and yolk of the so called "perfect egg" is caused by the denaturing of the egg protein conalbumin at 148°F (64.5°C). In Figure 4.1, we observe that the denaturing of the protein ovotransferrin at 144°F (62°C) causes the egg white to coagulate (This, 2006, Chap 3).
Place egg in a 148°F (64.5°C) water bath for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Crack egg and serve immediately.

Hi all, new to the forums and new to growing chilies. I have built a small ebb and flood system in my appartment. I need som help trying to figure out a good nutrition Schedule to use. I have good acces to Gold Lable nutrients's hydro nutrients. http://www.goldlabel.nl/1/Home.aspx They have a generic nutrition Schedule on their webpage but im unsure if that is optimal for chilies.
Also, how often do you guys change the water in your system? Do you just add nutrients and adjust ph or do you change the water every week?
Thanks for sharing! Being pretty new to hydro, I, for one, was envious of your hydro garden last season. Since I've given up on the community gardens, all my growing will be container, dirt or hydro, inside an enclosure that will, hopefully, keep the deer, grounhogs, squirrels, birds & chipmunks out. Not to mention stinkbugs and the Spotted Lanternfly, which will probably arrive in our county this year.
Side note - I had the worst stomach flu that I can remember last night. I barely made it home from work. It went from zero symptoms to bathroom floor in under an hour. I couldn't leave the bathroom for more than 30 minutes. I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. Then after 8 or so hours of agony it let up - back to feeling 80% OK by morning. Watch out for that one!
WOW! Sure glad to hear you survived that. It is NO FUN, having had something similar a few years ago, the day before I was to leave for a 2 week vacation in Hawaii. I left work at noon, and was that weak when I woke the next morning, I couldn't make it down the stairs. Somehow I packed a suitcase. Hubby tells me I slept from Chicago to Honolulu.
