Burnt Ends on Bun with Oven Fries

This dish was actually inspired by something I saw on a Food Network special. It's a Kansas City classic where they mix up all the burnt ends of smoked meat and mix it with bbq sauce and throw it on a bun. Apparently at the place they visited on the show, you have to order it as burnt ends on bun. If you say burnt ends on A bun, they won't serve you and you have to go to the end of the line. This just seemed so gross that I simply had to veganize it.

*Mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce, rub and marinade in separate bowls
*Freeze, thaw, drain and press the tofu
*Slice the tofu three times through the lengthwise, then slice in quarters and turn each quarter into a diagonally
*Put the tofu in a cake pan and pour the marinade over it. Let it soak for 30 minutes, tossing every so often
*Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and grease a sheet pan
*Coat the tofu in the dry rub, then cook for 20 minutes, turning halfway through
*Heat about a TBSP of olive oil in a pan
*Chop the baked tofu into small bits and saute in the pan for about 20 minutes, stirring more rapidly as you go along
*Stir in enough sauce to coat, then stir for another minute or two to warm through and throw it on a bun
*For the fries, just cut the potatoes into shoe string, toss them with oil and Old Bay and cook for about 15 minutes on 450 F, turning halfway through
*Serve with an extra side of sauce
