I have a go to bbq sauce recipe that uses chopped chipotles in adobo sauce to add a nice smoky flavor. Of course, it also adds a fair amount of spice. How do I get that same chipotle/adobo flavor without the spice? I can tell you that liquid smoke doesn't do it, knorr chipotle powder cubes don't do it (and I was so excited when I found those at the supermarket), and straight adobo sauce doesn't do it. Anyone have any thoughts?? Thanks!

Or perhaps substitute some smoked Spanish paprika in place of the chiles.
I'm a bit confused. You want to incorporate an ingredient whose whole purpose is to add spiciness, but you don't want the spiciness.
Perhaps chipotles in adobo are the wrong choice from the get go?
If all you're looking for from it is a smokey flavor, try fire-roasting and smoking all your other ingredients.
