You can mix it with anything to give it a smoke flavor, but it's not as strong as Liquid Smoke. So, if you're using it in anything wet, use the Liquid Smoke instead, but for rubs and such as you're talking about I like it.
I found some place to order smoked paprika but I do like the idea of adding the smoke flavoring. I think it gives me more options. I appreciate the rule of thumb relative to the salt. I think it is a good place to start.
