Dry Curing - Corning beef using a dry cure is a lot like rubbing a Texas Brisket before smoking. It really infuses the meat with flavor while it cures. This is one intensely-flavored corned beef. It reminds you more of Pastrami then corned beef. (Pastrami is brisket that's been dry-cured, smoked, then cooked) All corned beef is dry cured by nature. But dry curing makes is slightly drier and a touch saltier than brine-cured. Curing Time: 48-72 Hours

Hope this might give you some ideas to play with.
