Cedar Planked Spam

Oh sure, somewhere there’ll be someone that’ll say ‘ewww’ when they see Spam. But oh, do not poo-poo cedar planked Spam. Ever! The cedar imparts a special lightly smokey different flavor to the Spam slices. A little rub and a little time on your grill is all you need. Make them sweet, make them spicy, however you prefer. Watching your sodium? Just us a low-salt or no-salt seasoning. You don’t need anything strong, as the cedar will add a special flavor that you do not want to hide.

Cedar Planked Spam

My favorite thing to do with cedar planked Spam (besides munching on it right off the grill) is to get a nice crust on it using a super hot skillet or griddle and put it on a sandwich. I treat it much like I do my grilled or smoked bologna. One of my favorite sandwiches is a pool room burger. Try it. You’ll never look at Spam the same way again, specially after you’ve cedar planked it

Also try my smoked Spam.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Soak a cedar plank in water for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, season the Spam slices liberally with the rub.
  • Fire up your grill for direct and indirect cooking. Once it gets hot, place the plank over the flames and char it on both sides. Keep a spray bottle of water on hand in case the plank catches on fire.
  • Transfer the Spam to the plank and move it to indirect heat. Cook 20-25 minutes or until lightly charred along the edges. Cook longer if eating directly from the plank.

Spam on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Spam on the Char-Broil Big Easy. Yep, I did it. I was expecting not-so-spectacular results. What I got was deliciousness. Just slice, season and place into the cooker. Twenty minutes later, hot tasty Spam, ready for a sandwich (or chop into scrambled eggs!)!
Spam on the Char-Broil Big EasyI used ‘regular’ old classic Spam, but any flavor will do. I used my new all-purpose favorite rub, Albukirky Seasoning’s Red Chile Rub. The great southwestern flavors really worked well with the Spam. Not being one that grew up on Spam, or even had it until I was much older, I was surprised about how much I really liked Spam on the Char-Broil Big Easy.

You can also cook bologna on the Big Easy. And it’s way, way good.
