That sounds like a very good procedure. Dumonde Tech was apparently developed racing motorcycles on the Bonneville salt flats, so it makes sense that it works well on the playa. I read that it uses a synthetic polymer that works best with a very clean (specifically non-oily) chain, so it might not be an ideal solution for someone who isn't going to use a degreaser first.
I've had good results degreasing my chain and then lubricating using an old bottle of Rock N Roll lube on a 21 speed mountain bike for the past 5 burns. Rock N Roll appears to have 3 different lubes now and none of them look quite like the old bottle, which seriously looked like a bottle mud. All 3 are variations of PTFE (Teflon) in petroleum, which makes anecdotal sense as to why it sheds playa well. I also always carefully clean the chain and gears post-burn with citrus degreaser and chain cleaning tool/kit (Park Tool Chain Gang).
