Question: What Is Liquid Smoke?
You may have used liquid smoke in a recipe or seen it on the grocery store shelf. Liquid smoke imparts a barbecued or smoky flavor to food. Here’s a look at what liquid smoke really is.
Answer: Basically, liquid smoke is just what the name implies: smoke in liquid form. Smoke is passed through water so that the flavor is imparted to the liquid.
