“Smoking will kill you. Bacon will kill you. But smoking bacon will cure it”

A joke about cured meats is:

“Smoking will kill you. Bacon will kill you. But smoking bacon will cure it.”

“So smoking will kill you… bacon will kill you… but will smoking bacon will cure it?” possibly originated from this cartoon by Joe McKeough. The joke was posted on Twitter by Ken Barlow‏ on October 26, 2015.

“If smoking is so bad for you, how come it cures salmon?” is a related joke.


Wikipedia: Curing (food preservation)
>Curing is any of various food preservation and flavoring processes of foods such as meat, fish and vegetables, by the addition of combinations of salt, nitrates, nitrites, or sugar, with the aim of drawing moisture out of the food by the process of osmosis. Many curing processes also involve smoking, spicing, or cooking. Dehydration was the earliest form of food curing. Because curing increases the solute concentration in the food and hence decreases its water potential, the food becomes inhospitable for the microbe growth that causes food spoilage. Curing can be traced back to antiquity, and was the primary way of preserving meat and fish until the late 19th century.
