How to Make Smoked Spam

Making Smoked Spam is incredibly simple. Since the spam already has plenty of salt you don't need to season it.

Instead I brushed the spam with a light glaze of hoisin sauce to add sweetness and umami to the salty spam.

Slice the spam into 1/4 inch thick slices yielding about 5-6 pieces then set your smoker to 300 degrees F.

cook the sliced spam for about 30 minutes before flipping and cooking for an additional 30 minutes.

The smoked spam will start to develop cartelized crispy edges but sill be tender in the center.

Brush about 1 teaspoon of hoisin on each slice of spam and let it cook for about 5 minutes before removing.

Assembling the Smoked Spam w/ Pineapple Salsa

  1. using a 2 oz Scoop or a Musubi Maker Press tightly form a scoop of white rice into a ball or rectangle.
  2. Top the rice with a 1/2 slice of smoked spam.
  3. Add pineapple salsa along with a thin slice of jalapeño then garnish with Furikake, Chili Threads and parsley
