Maybe there is a difference in the liquid smokes available.
I have a bottle of liquid smoke, consistency of tamari or Worcestershire
sauce (not thick) - I use it rarely, but it perks up baked beans. The brand
is Colgin. Ingredients read: Water, natural hickory smoke flavor, vinegar,
molasses, caramel color and natural flavoring. 0 calories, 0 fat, 10mg
