    Chef TraceyMae's Note:

    This is a variation of a recipe from Clarks Outpost in Tioga, Texas. It's best to start it the day before so it has enough time to marinate. Everybody raves about it!

    DRY SEASONING RUB

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix 10 cups water, sugar and salt in a large roasting pan or stock pot.
    2. 2
      Place chicken skin side down in the water mixture (add more water if necessary to cover chicken.).
    3. 3
      Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    5. 5
      Drain chicken and pat dry.
    6. 6
      Place chicken halves skin side down in a single layer on heavy large baking sheet with rim, that has been lined with aluminum foil, preferably Release foil.
    7. 7
      Brush each half with 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with 1-1/4 teaspoon of Rub.
    9. 9
      Turn halves over and repeat.
    10. 10
      Bake chicken skin sides up, basting every 20 minutes (VERY IMPORTANT) with pan juices, for about 2 hours.
    11. 11
      THIS IS WORTH THE EFFORT!
    12. 12
      If you use chicken parts, like breast, thigh or drumsticks, reduce the cooking time to 1 hour, 30 minutes-ish. And reduce cooking time even more if using a convection oven.

      This chicken recipe is probably one of the best recipes I've ever tried! Very easy and delivers a moist and delicious chicken. I finished mine off in the convection oven so the skin would crisp up, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for a delicious dish! Made for Aussie Swap :)

      This was amazing! I had chicken I was going to use for this but it went bad before I discovered the error. So - I threw frozen chicken breasts and legs in the marinade in the fridge overnight. As for the rub - I cut it down to 1/3 of what you specify. It was the perfect amount. I should have saved the extra - but threw it out then realized my mistake. :) DH thought this was so yummy! We had this with salad and wild rice. Thanks for sharing! Made for the June 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
