I give this a five, but with my changes. Those not familiar with tofu will need to know the following: Remove the tofu from the box with water. Drain water and place tofu on a tray or plate lined with two paper towels. Place two more paper towels on top of the tofu. Put another plate on top and finish it with something heavy to lightly weight it all down without making it crumble on the sides. (I use a four cup measuring glass set on top of the final plate for weight) Let the tofu set for 20-30 minutes on countertop. This will drain all of the water out and prep the tofu for cooking. The paper towels will be SOAKED when you take it out. Discard them and cut the tofu into 1/4" stips longwise. Cut those strips in half diagonally to make triangles. Put these on a plate and freeze them for 1 hour. They should be frozen on the edges, but not too stiff to move. Do not thaw before cooking. This will make the tofu chewy and "meaty" rather than the undesirable soft and gooey-centered tofu. Heat 1-2 tbsp of olive in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Cook the flash-frozen tofu 3-4 minutes on each flat side, being sure to shake the pan often so as not to allow the tofu to stick. When the tofu is brown and crispy, turn the heat down to low-medium. Pour bbq sauce to taste directly in the pan and shake around until tofu is completely coated. Cook 2 minutes until sauce is crispy set to tofu. Serve on toasted wheat buns topped with light cole slaw. (Cole slaw pre-slic
