    Default What is Liquid Smoke and How Do You Make It?

    I've seen many recipes that include Liquid Smoke as an ingredient. Is there a simple vegan instruction on how to make it? I don't have a barbecue and I don't intend to get one. Do I need to roast a bell pepper to make it? I saw a lox cream cheese recipe that mentions it.

    You can buy it in bottle, I believe. Not that we can get it in this country...

    I've looked for it everywhere too, only place I've seen it is on ebay or via mail order but it's not cheap. I don't think you could make it at home, think you'd need specialist equipment.

    For those who have tried it, does it make a difference?

    I have gotten it in bigger grocery stores, like Winco or Safeway. It is usually kept in the condiment section with the BBQ sauce. I like it. I have baked tofu with it before and it really does give whatever you are cooking a "smoky" taste to it. I recommend it. And a small bottle really does last you a long time.

    For some reason, it is very easy to get where I live, but I don't care much for the taste. I've only tried using it for giving seitan some extra flavour, and it really stunk up the kitchen (the seitan didn't taste very good either). I have a friend who makes a lentil spread flavoured with liquid smoke, though, so I suppose it does have some use.

    Considering the low amount that you actually use, I wouldn't worry too much about the cost -- it should be consider to be a spice, not a sauce.

    I also looked and looked for ages in the UK, then last summer in Sainsbury's I bought some Ainsley Harriott liquid smoke in the barbeque aisle. (I was, I hasten to add, only there looking for plastic picnic plates!) It's in a brown spray bottle - like window cleaner! I've only used it once or twice, and to be honest, I much prefer the smokiness from smoked paprika, so I've been using that instead in recipes.

    if you are on the east coast of the US you should be able to find this in most any grocery store. i actually just picked up a couple of bottles to send to london for someone i am doing a package swap with. here is a link to the site of one of the types of liquid smoke. i picked it up at Shoprite..but looks like they sell them all over the place. i have never tried it..but hopefully this will help you out...enjoy!
