I'm thinking that the metal walls on my shed in the backyard would be good. I could just sharpen the edges and slice down the center of the spam. The walls are shaped like repeating \___/'s. That could look kinda rib'ish.

Default No Spam Ribs!

I hate to spoil the party gentlemen, but you cannot make spam ribs. Spam is clearly an extoskeletal creature and therefore has no ribs.

What if you did the whole shaping thing and then stuffed popsicle sticks inside Maybe even have the sticks poking out a bit so you can cut off each rib and hold it

Yeah, sorry about the verbosity (is that a word?). But there is so little information out there on smoking Spam that I really wanted this to be thorough. Now, if I could video-record it I would so as to help the next brother out when they undertake such an endeavor, but I have no camera operator or good lighting, etc. So just basic pictures will have to suffice to document this ham/pork food smoke fest!

If you chill it they would be Spamsicles...

Sorry, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth... Time for a JD rinse...

Updated the original post in the thread with the before pics. The Spam are sitting in the rub in the fridge overnight to get happy. I'll hit them with some more rub tomorrow before they go in.

I grew up in Hawaii and Spam was the king of food. I still eat it fried and grilled. m-m-m-m-m-

Default Spig Candy... The results...

OK, I had a small can of Spam in the pantry and decided to take up the challenge of making ‘Pig Candy’ using it….

I sliced it into roughly ¼ inch slices…


I put the slices on my BGE… The temps were lower than I would have normally used (about 235*) since I already had a butt cooking from this morning…


I let it cook until it had a solid ‘crust’ or surface on it. It didn’t brown much but it felt solid to the touch (about 2 hours). I then put a mixture of ½ cup of dark brown sugar, ¾ teaspoon of cyan pepper, and ¼ cup of maple syrup on top and let it cook down. This amount would have easily coated 3 to 4 times the amount I cooked.


I pulled one while the coating was still soft and the rest once it had cooked down.


I must admit, it was IMHO mighty good. Things I would do different would be to cut the Spam not only into slices but sticks (same thickness but half as wide). I would also increase the cyan to one full teaspoon rather than the ¾ teaspoon I used this time…

Final determination: I would do it again not only because it’s good, but to also freak out some of my buddies… In fact I’m thinking of a party coming up in a couple of weeks that this is going to go to!!!
