Dry-buttermilk-brining a chicken for roasting

What is the correct time period for dry-buttermilk-brining a chicken one plans to roast? How long is too long? How long is enough to make a difference?
Thank you. ;o)

When dry-brining turkey or chicken, I think 24 hours is the sweet spot (though as the recipe notes, anywhere from 8-24 hours is great!). After that, I find that poultry meat sort of begins to cure and actually can make the bird less tender, so I wouldn't go much longer than a full day!
