The short answer to your question is "up to 10 days". Basically, you want good penetration of the cure. Curing is not like doing a rub on BBQ. I have done buckboard bacon with loin before and I gave it 10 days.
Sounds good, thanks.

I've made it many times. I usually just let it cure for 3 days or so, but I've had 2 - 4 pound loins in a professional (not homemade) cure for the past week in the fridge.
