Never assume anything about cooking time
Each piece of meat will cook in it's own time. As far as making pastrami, are you buying an already corned flat? If you are then you can smoke it for pastrami, but if you are buying a raw flat (uncorned) then you will have to corn it first, which takes from 3 days to a couple of weeks.
