BBQ Tofu Sandwiches

What you need: 

One pound firm tofu
1/4 cup shoyu/tamari
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
6 oz. your favorite beer
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 cup (plus or minus) your favorite BBQ (read the ingredients, many contain traditional Worcestershire sauce that has anchovies)
4 onion, poppyseed, or other crusty rolls
dill chips, slaw, mustard or your choice of fixins

What you do: 

Slice the tofu into 1/4 slices. Arrange the slices on a towel lined plate. Cover with another towel, another plate, and a skillet filled with water (or other suitable weight). Allow to sit for 15 minutes and repeat with dry towels. Dice the tofu into 1/2 pieces and place into a pie pan. Combine shoyu, Worcestershire, beer, and garlic powder. Pour mixture over tofu and allow to marinade 2-3 hours. Drain. Arrange tofu on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Place tofu under a broiler for 30-45 minutes, turning once. In a saucepan, combine tofu and BBQ sauce. Heat through. Serve on rolls with your favorite fixins. WARNING!! If you find the texture of meat to be repulsive, don't eat this! It was so real, my roomate thought it WAS meat, and my girlfriend almost couldnt eat it. Otherwise, enjoy!

I've made these numerous times now and they are amazing!  Non vegan friends ate it up at my birthday party.  Definitely worth not rushing through the steps.
