DrBBQ’s Grilled Spam Sliders with Pineapple Head

By Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ

Spam is a fun thing to grill and it’s hugely popular in Hawaii, but I always feel the need to give it a unique flavor. The Pineapple Head sure gives these spam sliders that and matches very well with my Hawaiian theme. The Hawaiian bun seems like a natural and the potato chips give it a little crunch. Feel free to customize these spam sliders as you wish. Mahalo!
