Are nitrites really necessary in charcuterie meant to be eaten immediately?

Whoa there 'puter . . . I'm eyeing this recipe http://food52.com/recipes... which is meant to be consumed within a week after curing and roasting. I don't need my meat to be pink.

No, not necessary. They help inhibit bacteria and botulism spores but if it's being eaten immediately, those nasties would not have a chance to flourish anyway.
