Smoked Spam

I fired up my smoker the other day. Since I was going to smoke a big chub of bologna, I figured I might as well throw a few bricks of Spam on there too. I haven’t had Spam in like 100 years, and I’ve heard that smoking it makes it even better, so I figured… why not? Well, believe me, smoked Spam is awesome!

I tried this two ways. One I just scored the Spam and sprinkled it with Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom before putting it onto the smoker.Smoked Spam

The other Spam was scored in a checkerboard pattern. It expanded sort of like a Bloomin’ Onion. I then inserted some pineapple chunks and onto the smoker it went! Yum!

Also try my cedar planked Spam.

I like to get my smoker going using my homemade fire starter cubes.
