Bob first spotted the recipe on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations show, now in its last season. The episode was part of a series about cooking techniques, and included Thomas Keller's Simple Roast Chicken.
Bob tweaked it a bit, but it's still the basic recipe from the celebrated owner and chef of The French Laundry in California's Napa Valley, a restaurant at the top of my dining bucket list. Here's Keller's recipe that's included in a very fun blog titled Almost Bourdain, followed by the Farmer Bob version.

Liberally salt inside and out (no other spices)
