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 smoky 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.
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
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!)! I 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.
