I make this powder myself. Whenever I blanch and peel tomatoes, I save the skins and put then in a dehumidifiar or smoke them on my BBQ. Then I run them through my spice grinder (an older coffee grinder).
This powder is quite bitter, which is one of the reasons I think many recipies called for skinless tomatoes. I use them on many salads and side dishes for variety in flavoring.
I like this spice, if it can be called that. Yes, the smoked ones are really wonderful.
