  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the eggplant on a non-stick baking sheet and use a fork to prick it all over.
  3. Bake the eggplant for 20 minutes until the skin is wrinkled, then reduce the oven temperature to 180°F (80°C).
  4. In a large bowl, transfer the baked eggplant and cover it. Let it cool and sweat for 10-15 minutes until the skin peels off easily and it's cool enough to handle.
  5. Remove the stems and completely peel off the skin from the eggplant. Tear the flesh into thin strips and set them aside.
  6. In a small bowl, combine cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, smoked paprika, cayenne, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  7. On a non-stick baking sheet, add the eggplant strips and sprinkle them with the spice mix. Use your hands to coat them evenly.
  8. Bake the coated eggplant strips for 45-50 minutes until the ends start to dry out.
  9. Increase the oven temperature to 250°F (120°C).
  10. Pour barbecue sauce over the eggplant and toss it well to coat.
  11. Bake for an additional 15 minutes until the sauce has been absorbed by the eggplant.
  12. Pile the eggplant on the buns and top with coleslaw if desired.
  13. Enjoy!
