I donít think the intent was to freeze the Spam, but more of a what if it did freeze in the winter.

Spam is probably more wholesome than I allege. The prejudice developed after I spent a week visiting my brother, who worked as a meat inspector in a rural NY slaughterhouse. I was off hot dogs for about a year, thereafter. lso discovered that a skinned bear, hanging in the freezer, looks a lot like a skinned person might. Gave me insight into the behavior some of the shaved bears who work the night shift in selected hospitals. Upside was that the slaughterhouse was near Fort Drum, and there were a lot of surplus bargains in the local garage sales.

I've kept a can of spam in my rig in the past when it was well below freezing, and it was just fine.

I don't reckon that meat expands like regular water when it freezes. I believe the water is bound up enough that even if you go below the freeze point, it will not work the same in a semi-solid suspension like this.

Spam has a lot of saturated fat and sodium, even the low sodium version.

Anyone ever try and dry it, like chipped beef?

My wife used to be a security guard at a rasin plant. To this day she will not eat a rasin. There are many things about the food we eat that you just do not want to know. Kindasorta like watching a gunsmith work on your favorite firearm, don't do it!!!
