Sorry..Meant August 7.
Okay here is the deal...

Curing time is based on meat thickness: I use 9 or 10 days curing time on a 3 to 3-1/2 inch thick butt. About 8 days on a 2 to 2-1/2 inch thick butt. About 6 days on an average loin. Now, I'm sort of confused by your description are you saying that you have a hunk of butt that is full thickness and only 1-1/2" wide? And would that actually be something like 3" X 1-1/2"? What was the weight of the piece?

Don't forget about the rinse and soak out time, this could be 3 or 4 hours for your piece, and also you will need some rest time in the fridge, a few hours for this too. Your smoking time will be another 2 or 3 hours.
