I have used a very similar recipe but I brined it for 7 days instead of 3 but I think you are spot on for a dry cure. I would just make sure to keep it in the back of the fridge (hopefully in a fridge that doesn't get opened a hundred times a day) and just keep turning it for the three days. Other than that, seems like you are well on your way...
