Spam is a form of pate made with cheap ingredients. To make it yourself, the most important thing is the balance between raw lean meat, fat, fillers, and inert ingredients. It crisps up because the fat in the mix melts out and fries the surface.
I am half Marshallese (from an island not far, relatively speaking, from Hawaii) and I have very fond memories of caramelized spam and pineapple 'burger', Spam sushi, so much Spam. People who think it's gross usually have never tried it. Not paleo at all I know, but you could do worse on a SAD diet.

My mother used to feed it to us sometimes. Not sure why, she usually avoided serving commercial processed foods. I never much cared for it. I think I have only once eaten it as an adult, when it was offered to me while camping.
I was talking to a neighbor yesterday on the way back from the corner store (where I stocked up on two cans of SPAM) and he told me the bacon added one tasted like bacon pate. I got a good laugh out of that one. He's not primal or paleo, but he could easily be 80/20 because he loves all those things CW hates. Dude eats duck fat with a spoon.
Had scrambled eggs with diced SPAM, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese as my main meal last night - used a small amount of coconut oil to coat the pan. It's great to be Primal!
