*Jackfruit is a common replacement for shredded meat and is becoming more widely available in grocery stores. If your store doesn't have it, it can also be found in Asian markets. Look for young jackfruit that is packed in brine or water to avoid the sweet, ripe jackfruit that often comes packed in syrup.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and salt and cook for 10 min., stirring often until onion slices are softened. Add jackfruit and use a spoon to gently press it in the pan; it will get easier to break it into shreds as it cooks. Stir in barbecue sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 more min.
Pile onto toasted buns and top with Red Bell Ranch Coleslaw.
