Add a little of Jeff's original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub), beer barbecue sauce and wood smoke and even something like spam can taste pretty good!

Spam was never my favorite although we had it on a regular basis in my house growing up. I have to admit that this smoked spam is quite delicious and was SO much better than what I remembered!

If nothing else, this proves that you can truly smoke anything and make it taste better.😀

What You'll Need
IMG 7287 2000x1267Please note that my rubs and barbecue sauce are now available in 2 formats– you can purchase the formulas and make them yourself OR you can buy them already made, in a bottle, ready to use.

Season it Up

Start out by making some cross cuts into the top of the spam.

smoked-spam-1

Rub some yellow mustard onto the outside of the spam

smoked-spam-2

Add about a tablespoon of Jeff's original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub) to the top, sides and bottom of the spam loaf

Massage it in so that it mixes with the mustard and creates a nice paste.

smoked-spam-3

Place the spam in a ziploc bag overnight to allow the flavors to marinate.

Smoke the Spam

Setup your smoker for cooking at about 225°F with indirect heat.

Note: I used pecan smoke but almost anything will work including hickory, apple, cherry, etc.

Once the smoker is pre-heated, remove the spam from the fridge and place it in the smoker.

Use a pan/rack to make it easy to move it to and from the smoker. A Weber grill pan or even a cooling rack will also work great.

At about the 1 hour mark, baste the top of the spam with my beer barbecue sauce (recipe below)


Beer Barbecue Sauce

Mix barbecue sauce and beer until well blended.


30 minutes later, baste it again.

smoked-spam-4

Once the spam has been in the smoker for 2 hours, it is finished.

smoked-spam-5

Serve it Up

Slice the smoked spam and serve with crackers or make a sandwich out of it.

I never thought I would like spam.. smoke really does make a difference!

Smoke, Wood, Fire: The Advanced Guide to Smoking Meat – Unlike the first book, this book does not focus on recipes but rather uses every square inch of every page teaching you how to smoke meat. What my first book touched on, this second book takes it into much greater detail with lots of pictures.

It also includes a complete, step-by-step tutorial for making your own smoked “streaky” bacon using a 100 year old brine recipe.
