Default Cooking With Liquid Smoke

Since the weather is going to be so bad, I'll have to resort to using the oven for my Super Bowl cooking. I've got country style ribs and wings to do. I bought 2 new roasters with racks so the meat won't be laying in the fat and juices. I also bought a bottle of liquid smoke.

Questions: Should I prep the meat as if it was going into the smoker and use each roasting pan as if it were a water pan in the smoker and add the liquid smoke to the water?

Should I brush the liquid smoke onto the meat as the bottle says and then rub and not put any in the water?

Should I do both, or will this make it too smokey?

I've never used liquid smoke, so all suggestions are welcome, even if it is to forget about using it. LOL

Thanks Guys!

One of my favorite things to eat is country style ribs cooked in a crockpot or a roaster.
I rub the meat with a small mix of olive oil and liquid smoke(a little goes a long way.) then coat with my favorite rib rub. Toss it all into the roaster/crock add about 3 tblsp of water/beer/wine/etc.. just to keep the meat from burning to the bottom of the roaster( after a few minuets the juices in the meat will keep it from sticking.).

I cook it for about 5-6 hours on low heat (roaster set at 200deg.) When it is ready to come out it will be almost swimming in juices. I use tongs to get the meat and place it in a baking dish. Make sure it is all in one layer in the dish and pour lots of BBQ sauce over it.
Stick it in the oven under the broiler for a few minuets until the sauce bubbles and starts to get thick.
Serve it hot out of the oven with tater-tots or waffle fries.

Ok this is MY personal opinion. !

I just assume not use liquid smoke. Its nasty. I had a bottle, used it once, it sat on the fridge door for 3-4 years after that first use. Midnights right, a little goes a long way. If you must, just a drip/drop or 2 in a sauce/mop is all thats needed. That may have been what turned me off, way to smokey and artifical tasting for my taste. We all know what the real thing tates like, and to me liquid smoke just didnt cut it.

There are stove top smokers. these are pans that seal shut and have spots for small amounts of wood chips. I have used those and they give good results. (I know, too late).

Your gonna be just roasting. Prepare it the way you normally would but it I would not put the liquid smoke in the water. I would use very small amounts and add it towards the end. Maybe Im just paranoid but when I used it, just a tablespoon brushed on a bird was way to powerful. Since ya cant BBQ the real way, why try to fake it? Make the wings buffalo style. Use some alternatives on the ribs.. with some Q sauce at the end..

Maybe Im just keeping the our sweet blue sacred...

Isn't t there a commandment that say
"thou shall not worship false smoke"?

My suggestion would be to rub the ribs with your favorite rub- wrap in foil (try to make nearly airtight) cook for at least 6 hours at near 212. You won't get a smoke taste but you will get Q. Just serve with dipping sauce or do the caramelize broiler routine. You could experiment with the smoke in a sauce but I think taste like some weird chemical rather than smoke.

Too cold to Q for the superbowl?!?! It's supposed to be almost 30F tomorrow!

Screw this too colt crap. I'm wheeling the pit out into the snow tomorrow morning. 1 Butt, 3 racks of BBs and a box of turds.

Ovens are for quiters, just like AA meetings...

Cold is just an excuse to get to the favorite Bar and have a great time, no fun to watch the game at home with the Kitchenbitchamatic that hates football. :D

Just enjoy what ever we all do Sunday. Life is short!

Okay, I hope I don't get flamed for this (I can take it). But Pappy Pinell's is a brand of spice in Texas (no leads). On of their products is mesquite dust. I think it is literally mesquite sawdust with fine salt added. Sprinkeled on top of a roast while cooking, it is the next best thing to real smoke. I used mine up and haven't seen another bottle of it since.

I don't think I said it was too cold, I think I said the weather was going to be bad. I have to work until 5 PM, and it would be too much to ask the wife or 15 yr old to try and man the 'dera just so I got Q for the Super Bowl. I was just looking for a convenient way out for them. Hell if I was off, more than likely I'd be out there in it. :)

I use it for 1 thing. And I won't say what. Otherwise, it does not take the place of real smoke..
