Connecting 6awg cable

Well my hottub saga continues...

My plan is to run 6/3 romex inside my house.

Then exit the house into a waterproof Junction box.

I plan to use the THNN cable from the J-box to the GFCI box for the spa thus giving me the insulated ground that I need outside the house.

How do you connect 6awg THNN to 6awg romex? I'd be sure there are no wire nuts for this.

Consider the damp resistant nuts with the filling, per the link above. Since this will be outside. Wirenuts are used all the time for this size wire.

Are you mounting the disconnect where the NM exits the house?

If so there will be terminals in the disconnect to terminate the wires on.
