BBQ Pulled "Chicken" Sandwich

BBQ Pulled "Chicken" Sandwich                 makes enough filling for 8-10 sandwiches

8-10 rolls
2 c. creamy coleslaw

Poaching liquid:
1 Tbsp salt
2 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. mustard powder
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
4 c. water
1 pound tender sulfur shelf fronds

1. Mix all of the spices together and add to the water in a large pot. Bring to a boil and add the sulphur shelf fronds to poach for 20 minutes. Allow the poaching liquid to cool, leaving the mushroom fronds in the water. This can be refrigerated at this point, or shredded immediately.
2. Using a fork or knife edge, follow the natural ridges of the mushroom fronds and shred the mushroom into a large bowl.

BBQ sauce:
1 c. water
1/2 c. cider vinegar
1/4 c. spicy brown mustard (or 2 Tbsp garlic mustard-mustard)
4 Tbsp ketchup
4 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp minced onion
3 cloves of garlic, smashed
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
pinch of cayenne

1.Whisk all of the ingredients for the sauce together in a medium saucepan. Simmer over low-medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often. Taste and adjust the seasonings. The sauce should be reduced and slightly thick. Puree the BBQ sauce in a blender.
2. Pour about half of the sauce over the shredded mushroom and toss to coat.
3. Serve the shredded and sauced "chicken" on a roll, topped with more sauce and coleslaw.
