Curious as to if anyone has tried this one.
Turkey spam is pretty lean, and it would seem like it should dehydrate pretty well....
Maybe...
Even ever tried anything like this?

Why not just dehydrate ground turkey, which is really lean, like ground beef? I've done it before and it works pretty well.

That's true. I guess I could get sliced turkey, or even ground.
Anyone know a good turkey jerky recipe?

I've never heard of turkey "SPAM" , but turkey/ chicken in general is nearly impossible to dehydrate into a form that doesn't require at least  30-45 of actual cooking to get it past rock to shoe leather state.

Some things are better freeze dried.

I haven't tried it but I read you can dehydrate thin sliced deli ham, turkey, or chicken lunch meat.

It works.  I've tried it with Spam Lite:  cut it into cubes about 1/4 square and put into the deyhydrater.  It shrinks fairly substantially, and rehydrates pretty well, slightly chewy, but pretty decent.  I used it for sweet potato/spam breakfast sludge.  Pretty tasty!

I think pretty soon I'm just going to do a "meat tray" and dehydrate every kind of meat I can get my hands on. I'll hold back some samples (leftovers) and see what happens.

Why would you dehydrate something that's already really nasty?

Technically, you can dehydrate just about anything if you cut it thin/small enough and expose a large amount of surface area, right?
