No dry cure on the ham. It was a wet cure. I used a 5 gallon food grade bucket. Got one from a local BBQ place. All in all I think I used about 3-4 gallons of water/cure. I use about 2 quarts of water to dissolve all the ingredients then refrigerate that for a day then put the ham in the bucket, dump in the cure then add as much water as needed till the ham is covered. Turned out great with the perfect sweet to salt ratio. Definitely not salty. Second year in a row I did this and it is awesome. Got plenty left over that I will slice up as thin as ya can see through for sandwiches.
