  3. Add the remaining BBQ sauce ingredients and stir to combine.  Bring to a simmer, and then cook for 5-7 minutes, or until desired thickness is reached.  Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Allow to stand and cool for about 10 minutes, and then transfer to a blender.  Pulse until smooth.

  6. Add the jackfruit and mushrooms.  Sauté for 5-6 minutes, until mushrooms have released all of their liquid.  Stir frequently.
