    the hobo stick and handkerchief was handy- in that it could carry spam and be used as a weapon.

    I have a very old can of Spam that I bought near the founding on this site. I'm fairly certain I packed it in my move from Illinois to Texas, I'll see if I can dig it up. It deserves a place on the shelf in my study.

    No direct sunlight, they can rupture and do the shrapnel thing.

    Or was that C-4?

    One of those anyway.

    That would require an environmental impact statement.

    Just eat it, and report back to us when you can.

    I found a can a few months ago that was 4 years past it's expiration date. Thin cut it up and fried it in the skillet with some eggs. Ummmmm goooooooood.

    Dug an old can out of the pantry for you guys. This is my last can, so I'll need a resupply here shortly. Don't think the Tabasco is optional in this recipe....

    This is pretty good, on a sammich w/velveeta cheeze or thin cut and fried up in a skillet w/eggs and maters.

    'Slimey' isn't really a flavor......more a texture....and not a problem with Spam.

    I grew up eating Scrapple, sort of a precursor to Spam....but not quite as gourmet. Like scrapple, the key to really enjoying Spam is to fry it (preferably in bacon grease) until crispy and golden brown. If you make your pieces relatively thin....say a 1/4" or 5/8" thick...the center of your slice (or cubes) of Spam is moist and tender, but in no way 'slimey'.

    Of course, I've eaten Spam straight out of a can (or foil package), so you can't really go by me. :yum:

    There's no slimey. That's juice. Add flour and you have gravy.
