RECIPE TIPS
LIQUID SMOKE

If you want to add a slow-cooked American barbecue flavour to your food, but don't have time for hours of smoking, liquid smoke is just the ticket. It's essentially flavoured wood smoke that has been distilled into a liquid. Various types of wood are used to produce different flavours, including the popular hickory or more obscure apple & mesquite. Add a dash to marinades, stews, sauces or salad dressings, or simply brush over food before cooking.
