    Has anyone tried using jackfruit to substitute meat in pulled pork?  Heard someone mention it a couple of months ago and think I would like to try it (love pulled pork but pork does not love me).  Wanted to hear your experiences with this as I am not very familiar with jackfruit.

    I've never tried this but it was quite popular a few years ago so you should be able to get a lot of ideas if you get your Googlefu on. I've been wanting to toss a Jack in the coals of the BGE the next time I burn it off and try a riff on a Caribbean salad. I would expect that at least visually you should be able get a nice pseudo pulled pig. In the whole vegan vein my personal favorite is mock poke made with roasted beets.
