I have posted something similar to this in the past. But I wanted to try the other method people use to cook the jackfruit. I think I may actually prefer this method. It is faster, and the jackfruit actually gets a more crispy texture. Use any type of BBQ sauce. The seasoning can make the jackfruit a bit spicy, so if heat is not your thing, use a sweeter BBQ sauce.
