I do 3 lb boneless butts in 5 to 6 days, depending on how thick they are. I go by the 2 1/2 days per inch of thickness with no problem. The last one I did was 5 days in the cure, 6 hours in a soak out, over night (approx 12 - 16 hours) on a cooling rack in the fridge to form the pellicle and then smoked it on day 6.
My cure was 3/4 cup of Diamond Crystal Kosher salt, 1 cup of light brown sugar and 1 1/2 oz of pink salt #1.
