You will still be able to distinguish onion, garlic or fruity flavors within the sauce, but will get a light smokey back flavor.

Plus the smokey ketchup is great by itself on fries or onion rings.
That's a brilliant idea. I'll have to try that one.

I keep the trim from previous smokes in the freezer. I use this trim to build stocks for all kinds of uses, but, BBQ sauce and BBQ dip are two of those uses. After I cook the aromatics down, I add a few bits of cut-off to the water and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. That pulls the smoke into the stock beautifully.

I learned this from the BBQ shops in the East Bay, they all had great sauce, and what they did was keep a live stock going, full of water, and the cut off edges and fat from the meat they sold. This stock was used to create the sauces.

That's the funny thing is see so many recipes using liquid smoke on all of these sites. The only time I've added any smoke flavour is cold smoking mops for 400 F hot and fast cooks.

Recently I've switch to throwing the firebox divider and using the Amaz'N'tube smoker to cold smoke the meat under indirect heat for a reverse searing. I find cold smoking and reverse searing offers better results vs. adding smoke to sauces.

Before anyone goes ballistic - YES, I know liquid smoke is a mortal sin.

However, it is possible to add LHS, very sparingly, and simply add to the complexity of your sauce (in a good way).
If you add enough that your taste buds can detect it's in there, you added too much.

So, there. I said it. Let the religious war begin.

The two I've tried Liquid Smoke in sauces I've ended up tossing those sauces out and starting over.

Liquid smoke = Beaver Gourmet

I found you get better results doing it yourself.
