    Liquid Smoke

    Primal Fuel
    Apologies if this has already been addressed, but I was wondering about the community's thoughts on plain liquid smoke. Admittedly, I haven't done much research on the subject, so opinions are welcome.

    Liquid smoke seems pretty benign to me. We have it in the house and have used it a couple of times. As I recall, it's pretty potent stuff, so be careful. We usually do our smoking outside in the smoker.

    If I understand correctly, liquid smoke is made through channeling the smoke through water to capture the compounds. I have seen on some cooking shows how they make their own, setting up their gadgets. It should be no better or worse health wise for you.

    As a BBQ'r, the whole idea of liquid smoke pains me to my core. J/K You should be fine. Black timber is correct though, the stuff is potent.

    I don't strive for purity and I use a little liquid smoke, especially to jazz up ground beef. I just discovered smoked paprika - that's pretty awesome.

    don't forget chipotle chilies -- smoked jalapenos.

    I use liquid smoke in very small quantities and it works great.

    This, I use smoked paprika when I make pulled pork "BBQ" in my crockpot. While it doesn't replace the flavor of smoked meat completely, it helps.

    I would assume its fine unless it has some really bad chemical or something like that in it. But it would probably be best to smoke your meat, if possible.
