Smoked Tofu Burnt Ends

Prep Time:25 Minutes
Cook Time:45 Minutes

Nutritional Information

Cooking the Tofu twice helps to concentrate the flavors and remove moisture from the tofu.


  • 1 lb. firm tofu, drained and cut into 1-inch-by-1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon grape seed or canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue rub, store bought or homemade (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, your favorite Kansas City sauce (Gates, Jack Stack, LC’s etc.)


  • 1. Thoroughly drain the tofu on paper towels for 20 minutes or until most surface moisture is gone. Place drained tofu in a large mixing bowl, add 1 tablespoon of oil, sprinkle with barbecue seasoning and toss gently but thoroughly to coat evenly.
  • 2. Preheat Egg to 350ºF with platesetter for indirect heat. Put tofu on a nonstick or oiled baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 3. Add preferred smoking wood to coals and replace platesetter Add tofu to smoker/grill grates, spread evenly with space in between, and cook 20 minutes, checking halfway through and turning if needed. At this point, begin basting tofu with barbecue sauce and cooking an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until a nice crust forms and texture is firm and meaty.
