Well it had to happen sooner or later... My wife has finally decided that I was dropped on my head at least one too many times as a child. I had been getting requests from the family to smoke my monster meatloaf again for quite a while. While browsing the aisles of our local grocery I was thinking of things that I have smoked and things shared by others... Then it hit me.... SPAM.... Not one of my family's favorites, but what heck... I have to admit smoke helped the flavor, but it still had that gelatinous texture. The 7# meatloaf was exellent with the flavor from a mixture of hickory and apple.

Both look excellent . But the Spam needs fixed up with biscuits + gravy for a breakfast. Like this. Nothing wrong with doing a Spam loaf instead of a Fatty in the Morn.

Yea... I'll agree.... Sliced a few pieces of the spam this morning and fried it with eggs... The crispier texture with the smoke flavoring was actually pretty good.

Back in the day when Spam was a special treat (meat was hard to afford for awhile), my wife would slice the Spam and coat it with Maply syrup and brown sugar and bake it for awhile. Came out very tasty for Spam.

Sensing some underlying spam snobbery, so let me state:

There's nothing on earth wrong with SPAM!!!

There are enough recipes here using Lil Smokies, or other forms of salty processed meat that no one should criticize spam.

Last month, I had some grilled spam with cedar-planked salmon, and I must say that the flavors complemented each other quite nicely.

As the fine lads from Monty Python sang:
"Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!"

Hey, how'd you do your meatloaf? Did you have to wrap it in anything, or did you just put it on the grill as a lump of meat? How the dripping go?

It was on the smoker for about 4 hours. It rests on a foil covered rack sitting on top of a cake pan to catch the grease.

Here's my original post for the loaf, Grilla...

My entire family loves Spam. When I was a kid it was a delicacy around our house and we didn't get it very often. Fried up in a skillet and served up with fried potatoes and biscuits and gravy and you've got a meal. Damn I'm hungry all of a sudden.

I smoked some SPAM for my brother the last time he came to visit. Sliced it about 1/4 inch thick,sprinkled on some rub and smoked the slices for about 2 hrs. Even my wife said that she would eat SPAM more often if I kept making it like that. My brother took pics of it to show the SPAM festival folks up in Cleveland. Really quite tasty smoked.

I like SPAM, but find the Armour Treet really more cost effective (cheaper) and I really can't taste the difference. Smile

I agree with Mike tho as it sure needs something. Like waffels!
