We’ve all eaten SPAM. However, my mind was blown when Pitmaster Ree did SPAM burnt ends!
I’ve seen it grilled, fried and even sous vided. But never smoked then made into burnt ends.
Now they may not be your juicy pork belly ends. But from the first bite, your gonna want to go back for more! Let’s see how to make them!
4 Steps to EPIC SPAM Burnt Ends
1. Cube it
Remove your SPAM from the can then cube it to 1.5” pieces. Or something bite-sized.
2. Smoke Your SPAM
Smoke at 225°F for 60-90 minutes, remove from grill, and put in a foil pan.
Note: Ree is using a Traeger smoker for this cook.
3. Get Your Spam Saucy
Cover them in with BBQ sauce. You can use whatever sauce you like, however, Ree suggests Stubbs, which we also love!
4. Back to The Smoker
Then put the SPAM back in your smoker at 225°F for 30 minutes. Then remove, let me cool slightly, and enjoy. They are addictive you won’t be able to just eat one!
