Forget the brisket, try a little barbecued tofu.

I have to say it was pretty good. Here's how to do it:

This easy recipe from AthleticFoodie and Garrett Weber-Gale is simple enough for anyone to make: Press liquid out of firm tofu. Cut into half-inch slices. Marinate in barbecue sauce. Lightly spray with olive oil to promote some sizzle and prevent sticking. Get your grill smoky. Cook three to six minutes on each side, depending upon how brown or seared you like it.

No, it's still tofu.

Sounds good, Mark! How long did you marinate the tofu? What about adding lemon juice & more spices to thin out the barbecue sauce then marinating the tofu steaks overnight to really let it sink in? I don't have a grill so will try this using a grill pan on the stovetop.

Marinating with thinner sauce is a good idea.
