Default liquid smoke in sauces?

I recently bought Paul Kirk's Championship rubs, sauces and marinades book because people spoke so highly of it. I am experimenting with some of the sauces trying to decide which to use during competitions. I have noticed that many of the recipes include liquid smoke, does anyone use this in their sauces? I am hesitant to use such an "artificial" flavor for judges.

its much tougher to find a commercial sauce without liquid smoke. Outside of vinegar sauces, Im thinking BH might be the only non-smoke enhanced sauce Ive ever had possibly. Id be willing to bet most judges would be the same.

give it a try. or you could make the sauce and leave the liquid smoke for the last ingredient (unless it specifies you need to add it at a certain point in the process)

I follow meathead's ( belief... There are no rules in the kitchen or the bedroom.

If you are developing your own sauces and want to use it, go for it.
