I am starting my fifth Whole30 in January 2021 and have always omitted smoked meats from my Whole30. But I'm curious, are they compliant? While not on Whole30 I always use smoked turkey parts (i.e. wings, tails, necks) to flavor sides like collard greens and green beans (which are compliant) but I was never sure about the smoked turkey so I omitted it. Trouble is these meats rarely come with an ingredient label. A Google search shows some brands with ingredients listed as water, salt, and sodium nitrite. If this is all, I can use them, but does anyone know more about how these meats are processed and if they are all compliant or should I continue to avoid them?
If you go to the Whole30 Approved page (https://whole30.com/whole30-approved/) and scroll down, there's a section of restaurants and meal delivery services that definitely would have Whole30 options. There might be others as well, hopefully people will have suggestions of ones they've used.
