Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut pumpkin open from the bottom, removing seeds with a long-handled spoon. Separate flesh from seeds, and reserve the flesh for another use. . Pumpkin should yield 1 cup seeds or more. Spread seeds on parchment in an even layer. Bake until dry, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Let cool.
In a medium bowl combine 3 tablespoons sugar, salt, BBQ seasoning, cinnamon, and ginger. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pumpkin seeds and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar.
