When I was a kid my family used to eat a lot of spam when we went camping. It tasted ok and was definately more tasty fried a bit like breakfast sausage. It is very salty. I don't know that it would smoke that well and doing so would definately concentrate the salt. I smoked a couple corned beef briskets last week to make pastrami.Despite rinsing and soaking in fresh water they were too salty for me.
My guess is if you smoke a spam once the fat breaks down it will all end up in the grease tray. You'l open the smoker door to a empty rack! HAd a ex wife that loved Spam and eggs for breakfast. Me I lost that taste eating C-Rats.....
I don't know how well SPAM turns out smoked, but I wouldn't micd trying it. My family often takes SPAM and grates it with a cheese grater, then takes English muffins, splits them in half and ligghtly butters them, then spreads the grated SPAM on top of them. Next, we cover the SPAM with grated tasty cheddar cheese. Finally, we place these under the griller until the cheese has melted and turns golden brown. These are awesome for breakfast!!! Be careful, because they don't take too long to burn. For extra flavor, you might try using smoked cheddar cheese.
ever since my wife got the "poor white trash cookbook" i get this treat every birthday rack o' spam open the can and get the spam out make 5 cuts not all the way thru into those cuts put a piece of velvetta cheese put the whole thing in a baking dish sprinkle with brown sugar bake at 350 until the cheese just starts to melt eat it up AND BE GLAD YOU GOT 364 MORE DAYS TO GO BEFORE YOU EAT IT AGAIN!!!!!! jack ps. this started as a joke 12 years ago and is now a tradition. the book was written by a guy named mickler and he lived in palm valley florida before ponte vedra beach and all the golf yuppies turned it all into one massive condo!!!
Looks like SPAM has been around!!! I may pick up a can for my kids to try this weekend, after all, I had to eat it.

Nifty Spam Trivia! By World War II, Hormel had sold twenty thousand tons of Spam. Then, during the wartime meat rationing, Spam got popular... If all the cans of Spam ever eaten were put end-to-end, they would circle the globe at least ten times. In the U.S. alone, 3.8 cans of Spam "are consumed every second"(assuming SPAM is eaten 24 hours a day, 365.25 days a year). Senator Robert Byrd of West Viginia eats a sandwich of SPAM and mayonnaise on white bread three times a week. Residents of Hawai'i eat an average of four cans of SPAM per person per year, more than in any other place on Earth (Elsewhere in the Universe, who knows?). By 1959, a billion cans of SPAM had been sold. The two billion mark was hit in 1970, followed by three billion in 1980, four billion in 1986, and five billion in 1993. That's a lot of SPAM! In Korea, SPAM is sold in stylish presentation gift boxes of nine cans each. SPAM stolen from army PXs can be found on the Korean black market. And there are Korean imitations called Lo-Spam, Dak, Plumrose, and Tulip, to ensure that no one need go without. Nikita Krushchev once credited SPAM with the survival of the WWII Russian army. ''Without SPAM, we wouldn't have been able to feed our army,'' he said. SPAM is sold in over 99% of U.S. grocery stores. The SPAM luncheon meat trademark is registered in 93 countries. Over 60 million people in the U.S. eat SPAM. SPAM is made in two U.S. locations - Austin, Minnesota, and Fremont, Nebraska - and seven other countries: England, Australia, Denmark, Phillipines, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. In 1989, the U.S. armed forces bought 3.3 million pounds of SPAM. Over 141 million cans of SPAM are sold worldwide each year.
