Did you sign in at Cattle Call? That would be the first thing to do.
Yeah here Liquid Smoke isn't even a thought. I think you will find that the majority here will tell you not to use it. In fact your comment about marinating is actually a running joke here. When someone asks how to make great BBQ someone will come in and say "marinate in liquid smoke". Then the laughter ensues. We have at least one member in the philipines and he talks about great woods. Even think he referred to coffee wood recently in a thread.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.
Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?
