Indoor vegetarian BBQ recipes?

I got mad crazy BBQ cravings going on here. Difficulty: Vegetarian and wintertime!

My thoughts are consumed with rich smoky BBQ sauce goodness and satisfying these cravings as a vegetarian in winter on the prairies is going to make this tricky. My BBQ is buried under a mass of snow, and I can't even open the door my deck anyhow.

In short: I'm looking for recipes that are full of BBQ glory and can be made vegetarian and indoors. Hope me MeFis!

Annie's Original BBQ Sauce and Nate's Chicken-Style Nuggets worked pretty well for me.

BBQ pizza (barbecue sauce, red onions, cilantro, cheese, smoked paprika, maybe some jalapeƱos or pineapple if you want to get crazy).

I've never had this but a friend has a recipe for BBQ mock duck that they enjoy.

They are certainly not gourmet and don't require a recipe, but these were always one of my favorite treats when I was a vegetarian. Easy to micro, and then just boil some corn to go with them.

I recommend liberal application of liquid smoke to any or all of these creations.

There's a place here in Indianapolis that serves an amazing BBQ Tempeh sandwich with a side of roasted sweet potatoes. This recipe looks to be similar.

Served open-face and drowning in sauce, the dish looks like an absolute disaster, but is super delicious.

TofuBQ was a staple for us. 1 pkg cheap tofu (whole foods, trader joe, anyplace in east-asia-town) chopped and put in the oven on broil to harden up a bit with a rub. Meanwhile saute onion and garlic. Mix it all up with sauce / sauce recipe of choice and serve on a toasted bun. The texture you get is excellent.

I love me some vegetarian BBQ! Usually I do tempeh or seitan on a toasty roll topped with coleslaw. But for an interesting slow-cooker winter-time treat you might want to try these BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwiches. It's definitely hell of different and the jackfruit gets all fall-aparty and fork tender. Again, I like coleslaw on mine. Also fried pickles.
