Brown Sugar Whiskey and Chipotle Smoked Spam

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
After smoking bologna not long ago, someone suggested I try spam.
I'm not a big spam fan, but liked the way this turned out.

I used one regular Spam and one bacon flavored Spam.

I scored the regular one and partially sliced the bacon one....
Then put them in my drum cooker at 300 degrees with some hickory.

I mixed brown sugar and cayenne pepper for the bacon spam and minced some chipotle peppers in adobo for the regular spam...

After smoking for an hour I brushed the regular spam with the adobo sauce and placed minced chipotles in the slits..

Sprinkled the bacon spam with cayenne brown sugar and spritzed with Crown Royal whiskey....

Then smoked for another 15 or so minutes.

The cayenne/brown sugar/ Crown/ bacon flavored spam had a nice crisp coating but was tender and moist inside...

The chipotle/ adobo spam was nice and moist inside too...

They were both kind of tasty and I plan on making them again.
Thanks for checking out my Spam smoke. :)

Hey ya got some nice looking spam there. I'm gonna have to smoke it instead of grilling, but how do you know what temp to cook to? Do we really know what kind of meat Spam is?

Nice work, they look really good. Those were some great pics too.
Didn't know they made bacon flavored spam.

I've grilled Spam kabobs before but never tried smoking it. Looks pretty good and I'm not a real fan either. Maybe a combination of the 2 would work well, skewer up some kabobs and smoke with some glaze on them.

Looks good, Jeanie! I like smoked Spam and do it quite frequently. Thanks for the pics.

I buy SPAM about once a year just to remind myself of how much I don't really like it. But somehow you've turned it into something that looks suitable for a fancy dinner party.

Nice smoke.

Hey Jeanie, great looking Spam you made. I've been smoking Spam for a couple years now and the kids love it as much as they do fatties. No leftovers when they are here to visit.

Excellent "bloomin' onion" look you put to one of them! Thanks for posting.

Thanks folks! It was better than I had thought it would be. lol
thank you Bill and Cajun!! PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif
OTT, I just go by looks. It looked done to me. lol

Fire it up, the bacon flavored spam didn't have much of a different taste from the regular spam. I tasted a bit before smoking.

Lou, I like your kabob idea...that would work great with a couple of different glazes. Thanks!
Blacklab, I hope you give it a try sometime. It was better than I had thought it would be. PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif
Thank you Keith, Dude, Snickers, Lvrgsp and Rivet!
Lvrgsp... I like the way you think! PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif

Jeanie you need to travel to the Aloha State and show em your recipe. I bet you they'd make you an honorary something and give you the key to the city. Does that ever look good. I'm gonna try it with Orange brandy and demerara sugar instead of whiskey and brown sugar.

I have always loved fried Spam or even better fried Prem which is similar but better than Spam in my opinion.

Gave ya points.......Hah as if you need them. PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif
