Dug into the back of my cabinet and pulled out:
Wright's Hickory LIQUID SMOKE: "A table flavoring, like salt & pepper. No additives. A natural product manufactured by condensing pure smoke from the burning of green hickory trees" Ingredients: Water, Natural Liquid Smoke
Sqeet Mesquite Smoke Wood Smoked Flavor: Ingredients: Water, natural mesquite smoke.
Both of these are so old, there are neither 800- numbers nor websites listed for more information! But they're still potent.
I think PollyG's suggestion is great. Also, adding chipotles to your sauce. I'm not a big fan of "flavorings" like liquid smoke, even if it IS "natural;" that's why mine are soooooooooo old. But some of us are not able to even grill, let alone barbecue/smoke, so we do what we can. :( And don't get me started on the lack of local 'cue joints! :cry: :cry:
