        I like spam. Kinda nostalgic. Cubed and in a hash, fried real thin, diced in an omlet, or the notorious S.O.S. Think I'll pass on pumpkin spice though.

          I grew up with Spam added in scalloped potato's. However.... Pumpkin spiced I think has crossed the line a little. LOL

            I think someone is joking over on Twitter with that photo. If you look close, while the can appears HUGE in the ladies lap, the label still says 12oz. I think someone photoshopped it.

            If this is real, its gonna be gross. I hate pumpkin spice anything... ugh.

            I do have fond memories of my grandmother making me fried spam sandwiches (white bread and mayo!) when I was over there to mow her grass. I guess sitting at the kitchen table hanging with my grandma is the better part of those memories, but I was a hungry college student, and the sandwiches filled me up after pushing the mower around.

              jfmorris Amen to that, I only use water, barley, hops, and yeast for beer. Okay, maybe a little wheat occasionally for head retention. No other flavourings. Same goes for coffee.

              ComfortablyNumb I am with you the coffee too. I hate flavored coffee. Black and unadulterated is how I take it. I do use wheat in my hefeweizen, but that is about the only beer I make with much in the way of wheat.

                  I will be getting some and I’ll be making squash hash with it. I think that will be really good.

                  Cube up some butternut squash, acorn squash, pumpkin spice SPAM. Cook up in a skillet with butter and onions.

                  Anybody else with me?

                  Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                  maverick PT55 thermometer

                  A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                  Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  slow n sear

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

                  the good one grill

                  The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill

                  The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                  Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                  Char-Broil's Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you're off to the party! Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  NK-22-Ck Grill

                  Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                  grill grates

                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

                  kareubequ bbq smoker

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
