First of all yes a NY strip loin can and will age quicker. Consider the shape – it is basically long and thin, unlike a thicker ribeye or an almost round sirloin. By reading your first post and counting forward I assume you have been aging this for 16 days now. My personal experience with strips has been mine lost 18% of the weight in 21 days. Applying that % to your guessed weight of 7 pounds then in 21 days you may lose 1.25 pound so it sounds to me like you are on target.
As for your comment about lost posts, I’m not sure what you mean as those posts are right here in this thread and are attributed to you. I am only the moderator here and not the webmaster so I don’t know if there had been a problem necessitating a reset whereby bonefish has credit for your posts or what…just the same your posts are here and under your name.
Lastly about the smoking – not sure how heavy of smoke you intend, but the rind – unless trimmed of the hardest of the hard will be rather tough and just might cause the smoke to lay on a coat of creosote more than just smoking the meat…but let us know your results!
