Liquid smoke is a flavoring made by passing smoke made from the combustion of wood chips into a condenser and mixing with water. Liquid smoke is used to add a smoky flavor to foods and in some cases aid in preservation.

Liquid smoke is often used to flavor hot dogs, bacon, jerky, tofu or some cheeses. It can be used in marinades for a variety of meats.

Liquid smoke is often found in recipes that also contain chili sauce, beef brisket, yellow mustard, balsamic vinegar and onion powder

Substitution for 1 teaspoon liquid smoke:

1/2 teaspoon chipotle seasoning

The chipotle seasoning will give a smoky flavor but will also add some heat (spiciness). Another alternative is simply omitting liquid smoke if you do not want the heat.

Note: Substitutions are a suggestion only and may not work well with all recipes. Use your best judgment!
