Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a baking dish, pour some sauce over chicken and set aside remaining sauce to spread on buns. Cover with aluminum foil and roast in oven at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Chicken should be almost fully cooked (165 degrees at fully cooked).Grill chicken over medium-high heat to crisp the skin and get a nice char, a couple of minutes on each side. Remove from heat and let rest. Remove meat from bone and in a mixing bowl mix in a little more barbecue sauce.

Grill the buns. Spread a little remaining barbecue sauce on buns. Add some extra-sharp cheddar, top with chicken, pickled onions and fresh cilantro.
