The problem with being a BBQ nut is having to deal with 7 conflicting voices in my head. The other day one of the voices (the crazier one) suggested I make a burger with half beef and half spam.
I haven’t had spam for 50 years, so instead of arguing with myself (have you ever argued with a crazy person?) I gave in. After all, i owed it to him since he didn't argue with me when i dared him to play chicken on the freeway in his underwear with a rubber chicken on his head and a sock puppet on each hand. That's a night in jail we won't forget!
So I bought a can of hickory flavored spam and put it through my grinder with 80/20 beef, a little salt and pepper on my wifes and some exotic South African spices on mine.
I cooked them until they hit 145 and then put them on the grill to sear.
I used a potato bun with some horseradish mayo, avocado, slightly grilled onion, tomato, cilantro, and a roasted jalapeno. I then introduced it to my belly and my belly liked. I have to say it was one of the tastiest burgers I have made. (I ate two) Sometimes being crazy aint so bad. "BE QUIET I'M TALKING!"

I haven't had spam since I was a kid. I don't remember liking it either. :lol: I'd give that a try though. Great creativity!

+1 on that. I would try it but not sure anyone else in the household would. Nice looking plate though.

Interesting idea, ROL! I'd definitely give it a try, and I wouldn't tell the family what they were eating until they were done. :twisted:

Especially the hickory-smoked stuff.... :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
