Into a large nonstick skillet, add 2 inches of water and bring to a boil.
Add the carrots to the boiling water and cook until fork-tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Drain the water from the skillet and return the cooked carrots to medium heat.
Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and sprinkle with barbecue seasoning. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the carrots begin to char in places, about 4 to 6 minutes.
