Never too old to learn something new. Still, the right conditions and any significant Spore activation is exceedingly rare. Otherwise everytime a person ate a Chef Salad, plenty of Spores and Protein there, they would have to be whisked off to the Hospital. Thanks Dave...JJ👍

I agree on the color and that technically it can't hurt but I would love to see a Side by Side comparison for flavor.
I know one benefit, with Fatty Meats like Coppa Cure #1/2 helps keep the Fat from going Rancid. However, I have to think that with Whole Muscle, if Cure was a great advantage or necessary, the Salt only guys would have adopted it's use in last few decades...JJ

I can tell you if there are 2 Smoked Meats sitting on a table, & one is cured & the other isn't, I'll grab the cured meat for the added flavor every time!!

My friend... Trust me... Pork tenderloin and cooking to any internal temperature is crime against the most tender part of pig...
Pork tenderloin + salt + pepper + cure #2 + 2 weeks cure + 1 week smoke at 42 F + 30 days cure at 80% RH equal to heavenly taste...
