We have the Adams SS with $$ E_2^{p,q} = Ext^{p,q} _{E^*(E)}([S,E],[S,E]) $$ where $E$ is the Eilenberg-Maclane Spectrum yielding $\mathbb{Z}/p$ coefficients.

I was wondering if there is a SS for arbitrary compactly generated triangulated categories of which this is special case.

More specifically I am curious if we assume our category to have enough projectives (or injectives) can we avoid invoking the smash product? I am new to Stable Homotopy theory and think of smash products as black box. It would be really delightful if I could replace having a smash product by having enough projectives or something similar but algebraic.

In addition to the notes of Haynes Miller see http://jdc.math.uwo.ca/papers/ideals.pdf

These course notes by Haynes Miller seem to be doing exactly what you ask. In the general case the smash product is replaced by a symmetric monoidal structure, which has to interact well with the triangulated structure.

A general treatment of the Adams spectral sequence in the context of triangulated categories based on the work of Brinkmann and Christensen can be found here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/0801.1344.

No monoidal structure is necessary (although, in applications, you might use a monoidal structure to define a homological ideal).
