  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over medium heat; add the jackfruit and break up with a spatula; season with grill seasoning;  cook until browned, 5-7 minutes, stir and cook an additional 5 minutes. Stir in corn and BBQ sauce; cook an additional 5 minutes, or until heated through. Taste and add additional seasonings or BBQ sauce, if necessary.
