Kinda funny I knew some old timers that would use roofing tar thinned with Kerosene to stain or seal wood including old cedar because thats what they had on hand. Crazy what people would do back in the day.

I've personally had the best luck with PPG Sikkens SRD semi transparent stains for a lot of commercial projects over the years with lasting effect. Colors are limited but I have not found a one coat product that will out last it. The last 5gal bucket I purchased was around $250-300 I belive.

Painting has its own problems as mentioned. Flood was mentioned and is also another good alternative and can be tinted for a custom color but will not last as long (half) as Sikkens in my experience. Only issue I see is non conformity in wood color you have while using a transparent stain.
