Press the tofu between layers of kitchen cloth with a 1-lb weight on top.

Line a broiling pan with aluminum foil. Set the oven rack about 5 inches from the broiling element. Preheat the broiler.

Prepare the barbecue sauce by blending all the remaining ingredients.

Unwrap the tofu. Cut into 9 slices, each about 1/2 inch thick. Dip the slices into the sauce to coat both sides.

Broil the tofu until flecked with dark brown spots, 4-6 minutes. Turn the tofu over and slather any remaining sauce on the second side.

Broil until deeply browned, 4-6 more minutes.
