  1. Has anyone ever done a soup on the egg before? Curious if the grill/smoke flavor comes through on the end product – or is it just a glorified oven/range?

  2. I’ve always wanted to do something like this on the egg…. but can you actually taste any “egg”/smoke flavor in the soup? Seems like it wouldn’t penetrate the flavor at all – but I hope I’m wrong.
