Just talked with Mtnbkr. He's snow camping this week with some friends.

He's having the other great camping breakfast -- corned beef hash and eggs.

That sounds better than spam & eggs.

Remember when this was how you opened a can of Spam?

What other canned meats do y'all like? 

I bought some corned beef, but haven't tried it yet.  I need to look around for other canned meat options.

I gave the Kirkland canned chunk chicken breast at Costco a try a few months back, and that stuff is awesome for chicken tacos. I ended up adding three six packs to the larder rotation (use one, keep two in reserve, rotate). I might actually add a couple more six packs, as I use it a good bit, and I just checked and the "best by" date on my most current pack is FEB, 2027, so they should be ok for a good bit beyond that.

I'm sure there are other brands of it equally as good.

Didn't realize they now have Maple Spam.

Yep, will be trying that soon as I can.

I like to keep some of this on hand for when I want a quick sandwich or lacking bread on crackers

The little old kinda crazy lady that I help complained that SPAM keeps calling her and she doesn’t know why. She has a landline with caller ID.

When I was a teenager I worked for a farmer. His wife would bring fried spam sandwiches and chips out to us sometimes for lunch. They were the best. Skillet fried bread and spam with American cheese slices and mustard or mayo.

My sister in law is a retired food scientist that worked for Hormel. She said SPAM stands for “smoked pork and meat” and they don’t use pig buttholes or anything gross in it (contrary to street rumors).
Armour on the other hand was using “everything but the squeal” since WW2.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

NEITHER company uses offal in the production of either SPAM or Treet.

All of that is likely GI jokes from World War II in which both products were supplied not only to US troops but factored heavily in Lend/Lease to Britain and Russia.

The main difference between SPAM and Treet is... chicken. Treet uses a blend of pork and white (and apparently some dark) meat chicken. No beaks, no feathers, no bullshit like that. Just chicken.

A lot of the offal goes to pet food manufacturers, usually processed down to broth or meal and used as a nutritional additive and flavoring agent.

If it wasn't for the fact I already opened a can of corned beef hash I would have fried some Spam up with the eggs this morning

Another forum I visit had a guy talking about slicing SPAM thinly and then making jerky out of it. I may have to do some experimenting, especially with the Teriyaki SPAM. That should go really good with my bologna burnt ends. :)
