This is very good! It is easy to make (except for the ancho chili paste, but I think part of the problem is my crappy blender). My husband, who is a meat eater, gobbled up his first helping, had seconds, and said I should make it again. His only critique was the slight sponginess to the texture; but he said the flavor was spot on. I cooked it all day and I'm glad I did, because when I first put it in the crock pot I tasted the sauce and was disappointed; after cooking all day, however, it was very delicious and had a much more complex flavor profile. I would make one addendum to the recipe: The recipe says "ancho chilis" but it should say "dried ancho chilis".
Mmmmmm, the barbecue sauce in this is wonderful. I have to admit that I took a short cut and used chipotle peppers in adobo sauce instead of using fresh ancho chilies. I also accidently ended up shredding the seitan too fine (yes, you warned about doing this- but it's really easy to do) so I ended up with a consistency which was more of a sloppy joe. Ultimately, this did not matter so much because the taste was there. Hubby gave a loud "yummm" so that's five stars in my book. Thanks for posting, I really like this recipe and would make it again.
