This potent, concentrated seasoning adds a smoky, hickory, mesquite flavor to meats, bean dips, beef jerky, poultry and seafood. Since it is very concentrated, use sparingly, a few drops will be sufficient. This seasoning can be found near the barbecue sauce section in most grocery stores. Liquid smoke is produced by a safe, water-based process. Wood chips are burned, and the condensed smoke is formed into a liquid. The liquid is filtered to remove all unwanted byproducts.
