Smoked, then Grilled SPAM!

Didn't see too many BBQ's spam threads here so thought I'd document my experiment.

1. Started off with the low sodium spam. I cut a diamond grid over the top and bottom and glazed it in mustard. I dry rubbed it with my favorite port mix (and got some down in the cracks).
2. Got the egg to 225 degrees (F) and tossed in a few small chunks of apple. Smoked it for 2 hours.
3. Took the spam off, raised the egg temp to 300 degrees, and then grilled the spam for 5 minutes.
4. Served the finished product over rice.

The spam was delicious. My wife didn't want any ("eww spam?") but ended up going back for more. In the future, I'll need to find a better pairing as the rice somewhat took away from the spam flavor.

    Interesting, I'm not a fan of spam but I think I will give your method a try.

    I think that’s a natural for burnt end-style.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    Definitely appreciate this rebel post.  And here's a bit of enlightenment:

    SPAM is eaten in many ways, but in Hawaii it is best enjoyed sliced into pieces, pan fried or deep fried and served with a bed of steamed rice.

    The Amazing SPAM Musubi
    THE AMAZING SPAM MUSUBI!

    What is a SPAM Musubi?

    Genius doesn’t begin to describe the brains behind the discovery of Hawaii’s very own SPAM Musubi.

    You’ve seen Japanese handrolls – a fresh sheet of crispy seaweed filled with rice and a few other ingredients, wrapped into a cone-like Japanese burrito.

    Spam Musubi is an Asian (Japanese) Hawaiian fusion.

    Just like handrolls, the musubi begins with a sheet of seaweed. Next a scoop of fresh rice is pressed into a rectangular block and a teriyaki marinated slice of SPAM goes on top. The seaweed is wrapped around, blanketing the creation in goodness.

    To make it easier, the SPAM Musubi is wrapped in plastic and just like those Chinese hamburger’s, it’s complete.

    I might need to try that too. Sourcing seaweed might not be easy!

    Nice to finally see a thread that celebrates Spam rather than most folks just going "blecchhh"!

    I made Musubi once and loved it. The family wouldn't touch it even though they like sushi.  I brought it to a party and ended up bringing most of it home. I thought it would go over better

    The spam looks delicious but I agree the rice is a bit plain and the spam would overwhelm it.  I'd like to see the spam featured in a sandwich or maybe with some eggs an potatoes

    Spam is awesome diced up in fried rice!

    I love spam musubi and make it 2 or 3 times a year. I fry the spam in a skillet, finishing with a little liquid (half soy sauce, half maple syrup). Then I put it in the musubi mold with a liberal sprinkling of furikake (rice seasoning) between the spam and the rice. Wrap with nori and you a great handheld snack.

    This is next up on my hit list for spam. With what I did before, the right bun and cheese combo and it would have been ace!
  • loco_engrloco_engr Posts: 4,921
    I had grated spam with some onion spread on a bun with cheese on top then broiled . . . not 1/2 bad for who it was for!  =)
