What I am finding is that after the cure, including nitrite as some cures on the internet claim the name cure but do not include nitrites, is that the cure promotes tenderness and cellular disintagration.Not a great deal of difference between ham and CB. I have had more then one brand if not sliced thin would have called it ham. I also suspect some pizza places use ham in the place of CB on pizza.
All you may have to do is get the moisture content of the meat down so it is firm and slices thin.
