Smoked Spam....with some shrimp and crablegs

This was an unplanned cook. I needed some finger food at short notice so I went with what I had on hand at the time.

Started by making a batch of spicy shrimp.
Placed the shrimp in the smoker then added few thawed crab legs.



I scored two blocks of Spam....



When the spam "blooms" I sprinkle them with a mixture of brown sugar and cayenne pepper.





Spritz the Spam with whiskey ( or apple juice) and then it goes back into the smoker to caramelize the brown sugar.













The snacks took longer to cook than they did to eat. They disappeared fast! :)

Woooooooooheeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!
Them's good eats!
Coon't do no better at Le Chantecler, or MacDonl's neither.

I have a SPAM cookbook I will have to send you. There might, just might be a recipe in there for SPAM you haven't tried.

I now do SPAM Blossoms at all my comps as a quick and easy meal. I can't believe the Oklahoma Cowgirl has turned me into a Georgia Spammer.

Absolutely delicious looking and no doubt tasting as well. Something like this has to go down the hatch fast. Too good to take your time. Never tried Spam like that. Going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing Cowgirl... (:{

Well jeanie, you got something here i've tried and will pass on again: spam.
sorry, nothing, and i mean NOTHING will get me to eet spam again.

Now, on the other hand, your shrimp and crabby legs will brighten my grayest days!
Your last two photos look OUTSTANDING!! Actually, quite SPECTACULAR!!!

I'm sure spam has it's fans and quite a large following... i'm just not one of them.

Hope your weekend is cool and sunny!!

Thank you Rueben! Good to see you. I check your blogs often, have had trouble leaving a comment. I think google works part time but not full time.
I'll keep trying! :)

lol Jazzcat!!
I fully understand your aversion to Spam. :) I had not really eaten it until I tried it smoked.
It's not for everyone. :)
Hope you are doing well and not working too hard. Have a great weekend!

Nothing dresses up Spam quite like crab and shrimp.

I love Spam Jeanie. It brings back memories for sure. It all looks very good.

I am back in the States. Thought you might want to know, I am posting pics of my trip, one country at a time over the the Three Dogs blog if you are interested...

Bill that sounds wonderfu! Can't wait to hear how it comes out. :)

Not sure why I didn't have it there before, but I added your blog to my "friends" list. :)
