I'm in the process of making vegetarian pulled pork tonight. I know most here eat meat but may have some friends or spouses that don't. Anyways, if you're interested in pictures with directions let me know. I don't want to spend the time if no one here is interested in vegetarian BBQ lol. But, if you are, I'd be glad to share =)!!

To be honest, I am not a vegetarian, but I really am interested in your recipe! And will try it some day. I love new things.

Please share your vegetarian BBQ, thanks.

You got it =), keep an eye on the thread. Note, it does not taste just like pork by any means. My fiancee cannot eat meat and misses BBQ. She loves this stuff. There are vegetarian recipes out there but I completely changed it to make it more meat lover friendly.

1. Young Jack fruit in water not syrup 

2. You'll want to cut the cores out which are the hard part

3. Shred the jackfruit, I usually like to use disposable pans but didn't have one

4. Add the ingredients, don't over do it, this isn't meat. (just a dash of whiskey and liquid smoke) I like to add butter as well (DON'T ADD SAUCE YET)

5. Brown the jackfruit on your rig, I used a traeger on high since it never seems to burn anything. You can play with the temp. 

6. Add desired amount of sauce and crank your rig down to smoking temperatures. This allows the sauce to set and get some smoke.

7. Timing varies based on your set up, just keep an eye on it.

8. I like to wrap the buns in a damp paper towel and microwave them for about 20 seconds

9. Enjoy

10. Here to answer any questions, if you try it, let me know what you think =).

Also, the world is yours. Alter this anyway you like. This is just what works for me

Good stuff! I make this for my ex-vegetarian wife. Have to order the jack fruit online as there is nowhere here that carries it.

First time she had it was in Kauai a few years back. We stopped at a place that did all kinds of cooking with jack fruit .tasty!

Points!

This is the original, which I have made exactly as she has. I just like it more BBQ-like =)
She was interesting! "Looks like pulled pork", not quite, but close.

What is jack fruit? Never heard of it.

I bet if you smoked the jack fruit for a bit it will add that BBQ flavor to it.

Looks great and thanks for sharing.

My fiancee doesn't like too much smoke flavor, that's why I sneak it in when I add the sauce. Do as you wish though =) I love the smoke flavor, I bet it would be great.

Very creative, and it sure looks tasty!



I've never come across jackfruit before. The most exotic I have seen is dragon fruit so I had to ask Google about the flavor and what I got was very conflicting. Some people thought it had a meatiness and had a pork flavor, where others said it was mealy and was kind of fruity.

Well, if I ever come across some I'll have to try it myself and find out!

Thanks for sharing!
